The Lip Balm

This lip balm boasts a juicy and soft texture, designed to feel silky-smooth on your lips, rather than oily. Infused with cranberry extract, raspberry extract, and shea butter, it won’t just hydrate your lips, but also give them a youthful shine!

The sheer finish allows you to layer the pigment for different makeup styles. You can even dab it on your cheeks to use it as a blush, and blend it effortlessly for a naturally flushed complexion, without it being overly sticky.

Thanks to its lightweight formula, some opt to use it as a glossy overlay on top of more pigmented lip colors, a trick you might want to experiment with for a more vibrant appearance.

If you’re sensitive to fragrances, not to worry! Even though these lip balms have tempting colors and look rather like jam, they are completely fragrance-free.

The balm is conveniently housed in a small pot, making it easy to carry around. However, applying it directly with your fingers can be a bit tricky since it doesn’t come with a spatula.

A lip brush is available from AOU, but it has to be bought as part of a set with the balms. If you prefer not to use your fingers, you can opt for a plastic spatula or a silicone lip brush for more hygienic application!

The Shade Range

The Glowy Tint Balm comes in seven different shades, catering to both warm and cool skin tones!

For those with warm undertones, shades like 01 Apple Balm and 02 Persimmon Balm are perfect choices, offering a natural glow with their warm red and coral hues.

On the other hand, 03 Mulberry Balm is a top favorite among customers for its soft mauve shade, and it’s also Jennie’s personal pick!

If you prefer a more subtle look, you can opt for 05 Chocolate Balm or 06 Peanut Balm, to get a muted nude lip.

Widia, (@anotherwps on Tiktok) mentioned that the smooth and gel-like consistency of this balm melts effortlessly on your lips, utilising your natural body heat to produce a stunning glossy look.

However, in our warm climate, this might make it a little messy to apply.

Ryuwon (@rw2100 on Tiktok) tried out all the shades on her lips, and fell in love with AOU’s nude shades in particular – 05 Chocolate Balm and 06 Peanut Balm.

However, she pointed out that since this product is a gloss and not a tint, it doesn’t leave a stain on your lips. Although the shiny finish lasted a long time, it wasn’t transfer-proof.

So, be prepared to reapply after eating and be cautious of smudging!

Hannah (@myskincareregime on Instagram) shared in a review that the balm didn’t feel sticky or greasy on her lips, and she appreciated its moisturising properties.

Although she was a bit let down by the size of the product and its lack of intensity, she enjoyed using it on her cheeks for a natural, no-makeup look.
