Some time ago, a Sephora VIB code surfaced for a free full sized Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Balm in Waikiki. Don’t mind if I do!
While this shade isn’t currently available on the website, I thought it would still be nice to review in case the shade pops back up, or if you’re interested in how the formula checks out.
What the Sephora website has to say about Big & Healthy Lip Balms:
What it is:
A highly emollient, pout-plumping balm that drenches lips with exceptional comfort and hydration in sheer, shiny pops of color.
What it does:
This healthy formula deeply moisturizes and conditions, while fortifying with antioxidant vitamins C and E. And the refreshing, tingly sensation reminds you that your lips are getting fuller and more curvaceous.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Synthetic Fragrances
Size: 0.11 oz
In the pot, Waikiki is a stunning and intense coral shade. Even swatched, it’s still stunning and offers nice pigment. On the lips… Sheer as sheer can be. I know it’s a balm, but I expected a bit more pigment with this one.
The formula glides on well, but feels semi-sticky and doesn’t last very long. Because this was a free item, I obviously feel it was worth getting, but I can’t say I’d pay retail for another.
Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Balm retails for $15.00 and is available at Sephora.
