EVENT: Livin' Pink

Like if you like lip balms

I think it's safe to say that what started this beauty fixation are lip balms. My trusted peppermint chapstick used to be the only thing inside my kikay kit. Now I think Occupy Kikay kit will soon rise.

This post came quite late, I know, but I just had to have perfect timing in posting this. See, I know I was switching things up with my blog layout, making it pinker than ever; and for that very reason, I delayed my Lip Ice post week after week. Finally, the day has come. Let me share with you an a lovely discovery I made during our Pink Sparty at The Spa Bonifacio High Street. :)

The Lip Ice Color Lip Balms*. It is available in three shades: Pretty Pink, Sweet Rose and Candy Apple.

These Lip Ice Color lip balms glides so very smoothly on the lips. They are enriched with shea butter and vitamin E for maximum moisture, natural ingredients like beeswax and aloe vera for a gentle yet effective lip care and nourishment; and last but not the least, they are packed with your lips' much needed protection from the sun's harmful rays. Color-wise, the three tinted lip balms has three distinct undertones.

Surprisingly though, they are your friendly subtly pink to pinkish-red when worn. Allow me to share my lip swatches.

1. Pretty Pink - this is the lightest of them all from the bullet and upon application. It has a brightening effect against my skin. Normally, anything pink is expected to gray/ash out the skin but Lip Ice color lip balm is surprisingly mestiza and morena friendly.

2. Sweet Rose - from the bullet, this is the middle color. Think Baby Bear (Goldilocks').

3. Candy Apple - I'm disappointed that once worn, Candy Apple is not as red as it looked like from the tube; however, it's still the darkest of all pink balms.

Yes, the variations in color isn't dramatic and yes, it all look pink to me! But I'm not complaining because Pink is something every girl has a soft spot on.

What do you think of when you think of the color Pink?

To me, Pink is young, fun, friendly and sweet. It is exciting, inviting and energetic. Pink as a lifestyle is living life to the fullest--with grace. Comment with your answers and Like LipIce Philippines on Facebook.


  1. The pink looks gorgeous~ btw love your striped top!

  2. I haven't tried any liplice products yet; but i have heard good stuff about it. would love to drop by my nearest watsons store and try this one out ;)

  3. I almost didn't spot the diff in the shades. But when you put the swatches side by side, I think I saw something. I think. I don't buy lip balms often because it takes forever for me to finish one up (LOL) but I have their sheer color changeable lip conditioner and like it. Pag nagsawa na 'ko, I will try another LipIce product. Hihi :)

    1. agree! the most "waste" for me is investing on lip balms bec i DONT finish them really. its like a ballpen. i lose em first haha

  4. I am in love with the Sweet Rose, so simple and lovely :)


    1. agree. although there were VERY small differences between the three, it was sweet rose that caught me.
