Here is another Miss Hana product I will review. This time it is Miss Hana’s Natural Born Lip Balm Crayon in No.1 Purple Sakura Season.
Miss Hana is a Taiwanese brand and the Gel Eyeliner Pencil I reviewed before seems to be a bestseller in Taiwan. Why not try some other products?!:D This lip balm is available in 5 different shades. It was send to me by BeautyChamber. The shades which are available are called: Purple Sakura Season, New York Uptown Pink Girl, Orange Twilight, Peach Champs-Elisées and Moulin Rouge Diva. I like the names they’ve got. Below you can see the advertising pictures of Miss Hana Lip Balm Crayons:
The packaging is very girly and has the same color as the lip balm, with black ornaments around it. It has a clear plastic cap to protect the lip balm.
The description is in written in English, too. Yeii! (Although there is not much you can do wrong while applying lip balm… )
The texture of the lip balm is very, very creamy. The first time I opened it and swatched it on my hand (picture below) I accidentally broke of a tiny little bit ^_^”’ shame on me. For a lip balm it is also really pigmented. It is comparable to a lipstick in my eyes, but far more moisturizing. It really glides onto your lips and makes them feel supple and smooth. I really like the feel of the application.
In the picture above I didn’t use any lip concealer. See how pigmented it is nevertheless? Normally I don’t wear pink lip products, but I really like the feel of this one, so I put it on rather often, despite of this. Since I didn’t put on a concealer it can happen, that the lines in my lips appear like brighter, because more product sets in, but it is so easily blendable, that also this problem can be solved by using your fingers or a lip brush for blending in.
Only downside: the staying power is comparable to a lip balm and so it vanishes pretty fast and you have to touch up. I think it stays on for like 2 hours, without drinking and eating. Perhaps also a bit longer.
I’d really love to try out more colors of this lip balm, especially Moulin Rouge Diva or Peach Champs-Elysees. Because these seem to be more the colors I love to wear. I can only recommend you (especially if you have dry lips) to try one of these, if you can get your hands on it. The price for this product is 13.99 US$.
