I LOVE tinted lip balms. They are a staple I always carry in my handbag since they are a fast way to give your face some colour without the hassle of having to apply them carefully in the mirror.
I used to love the Labello tinted balms when I was younger but stopped using them after trying Babylips. I saw the Labello while at the pharmacy the other day and thought I would give it a try again. I bought the strawberry flavoured one as I particularly adore red tinted balms.
When I opened the Labello, the first thing I noticed was how amazing it smelled. It feels amazing on the lips too. It has a very thick, balmy texture without being sticky which feels very moisturising whereas the Babylips has a thinner texture, however, I woke up with dry, peeling lips after I used the Labello and that was the only thing I had done differently. This disappointed me since I really liked the product otherwise. This gave me the idea to compare it to my beloved Maybelline Babylips in Cherry Me. Now, I have spoken about this product often since I seldom leave home without it but let’s see how it compares to the Labello.
|Labello Fruity Shine – Strawberry||Maybelline Babylips – Cherry Me|
|Affordable (Cheaper than Babylips)||Affordable (Although slightly more expensive)|
|Smells wonderful||Also smells wonderful|
|Feels moisturising upon application||Also feels moisturising upon application but feels less moisturising|
|Dries out my lips||Actually moisturises my lips|
|Orange-toned red||Pink-toned red|
All in all, I won’t be repurchasing the Labello since it dried my lips out so badly rather than moisturising them. In fact, I will likely be giving it away to a friend who will be able to use it. I know there are many people who do love the Labello too so let me know; have you tried either of these products? What do you think of them?
