My life isn't what you'd call glamorous, but there are parts of it that are glamorous. The events and parties, the opportunities to trade ideas and plans with remarkable women in the local beauty/fashion industry, the free things I get - these are all amazing and fun. And ultimately, superficial. If you only knew all the leg work I need to do behind the scenes to make things happen, your desk job might just sound like a breeze!
Anyway. Let's continue Organic Beauty Week with a French product this time: the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Moisturizing Stick (P350 from Digital Traincase).
Nuxe is a natural origin cosmetology brand originating in France. It combines high-performance with a certain je ne sais quoi, and is said to be one of the best-selling brands in French pharmacies. I've honestly never heard of it before though, that is until Digital Traincase started carrying a few select items!
Sol sent me this lip balm and I've been enjoying it since I got it. This balm is not like any other lip balm I've tried before. It doesn't have that slippery, slick, or hard waxy texture I'm accustomed to when it comes to balms. It feels...plush. Solid on the lips, but not heavy. It feels soft and light as it hugs the skin!
Sorry, no lip swatch since it's completely transparent and there won't be anything to see
Did that make sense? Lol it's just one of those things you need to try. Even if the balm doesn't feel emollient, it still moisturizes my lips. I love wearing this underneath my lipsticks since it doesn't ruin the texture or staying power. It creates a nice dry (but not drying) surface for matte, satiny, or sheer colors to stick on.
The scent is subtly sweet, like there's a whiff of honey every time I apply a fresh layer. Finish is matte and it dries up completely in a couple of hours. No flaking though! The lipstick shape is a bit frustrating because it doesn't allow you to slather the lip balm on; the stick is rather stiff too. That's why I really love it with lipsticks.
Overall, I highly recommend the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Moisturizing Stick if you have normal lips that dry once in a while but rarely chaps. You will also love this if you love lipsticks. ;) However, I'm hesitant to recommend it to those who have very dry lips as I'm not sure how effective it will be!
Have you tried Nuxe yet? I'm super curious about their dry oil, as it can be used on the face, body, and hair!
