Review: EOS Lip Balms

EOS Lip Balms. If you aren't sick of hearing about them yet you will after this post! EOS Lip Balms are the spherical, out of the box, and chubbiest of all the lip balms in the lip balm world. They come packaged in these adorable orbs and instead of being shaped like a stick, they are shaped like a dome. I love EOS Lip Balms if it wasn't already clear from the nubby pink one and the two back ups, haha! It looks as though they would be extremely inconvenient to use, but just the opposite! Cause of the rounded shape you can easily moisturize your top and bottom lip all in one swipe (although I do like to swipe more than once to get the delicious flavor!) They are also very moisturizing. Not so much that your lips slip and slide, just enough so you know your lips are nice and hydrated!
These lip balms also come in a pretty big variety of flavors so there's one out there for everyone to love! My favorite (by far) has to be the Strawberry Sorbet (the pink one); nicely sweet and fruity, it was perfect for the summer time! The other two are Sweet Mint (in the mint packaging) and Summer Fruit (in the red/orange packaging). I go between these babies and my Maybelline Baby Lips religiously. I've had some scary dry lip spells and these have saved me from crackly and cut up lips!

Also, the cherry on top of this amazing lip balm, is that they are an absolute joy to decorate! Strange right? I made my first ever EOS Lip Balm (from about two years ago) look like an out of this world space ship! I slathered these three with my favorite polishes to give them a 'Jessica' touch. The pink one was painted with a Wet N' Wild clear glitter polish. The mint one was painted with my Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream and lastly, the red/orange one was painted with China Glaze Riveting. If you can make it sparkle, why not? ;)

What do you lovelies think of the EOS Lip Balms? Have you ever thought to decorate them with polish or pens? If not, you should give it a shot! Moisture and sparkle, what more can a mermaid ask for?!

    1. Oh no! They were really hard to find in the US at one point too. The Strawberry Sorbet was the hardest one to track down!

  2. I want one of these so bad, but they're a pain to get hold of in the UK. I love your idea painting them with varnish, they look so much more personal.

    Much love for Mod Mermaid!

  8. I love these! I thought there was a new range out when I saw your photos and got excited, I never even thought to decorate them, such a good idea! I've bought a few online and everytime I use them people are always wondering what it is because we don't have them over here.

    1. Hahaha, omgsh I will gladly sit there and paint all the EOS Lip Balms for a pretty penny for the EOS peoples. Decorating them with nail polish is super easy but sometimes it's really fun to sit there and draw on intricate designs. More time consuming but the effect is awesome! :)

  9. I used to use EOS until I found Buddha Balm. I'm loving their stuff. Try the Lychee Pomegranite. Tastier then anything EOS has.
