Annabelle Cosmetics Lipsies – Review, Swatches & Photos

 

It finally feels like spring in Toronto but don’t worry if it still doesn’t feel like spring to you because these Lipsies from Annabelle cosmetics will definitely put you in the mood for warmer weather. Now apart of their permanent line, lipsies are now available in 12 colors. These retractable  lipsies are basically tinted, scented lip balms that feel moisturizing while adding a nice tint to the lips.

Packaging
The Lipsies come in a retractable chubby stick that has a clear cap that let’s you see the color of the lipsie. I like that it has a clear cap but the entire packaging is already color coordinated with the actual shade. It has a rounded tip which I feel makes application much more easier then the typical flat tip. Overall I like the packaging, it’s fun and more on the youthful side.

Scent
These lip balms are heavily fragrant so if you don’t like scented lip products these might not be for you. I personally love fruity scents especially when it comes to lip balms. Although they are scented they are tasteless.

Pigmentation / Formula
Even though these are technically lip balms they pack a punch. They apply sheer but the color can be built up easily. As for the formula, that’s where these lip balms really shine. They feel extremely moisturizing and lightweight. They don’t feel sticky but still look naturally glossy. I have super dry lips and these lip balms make my lips feel soft and subtle.

Staying Power
The staying power for the lipsies is about 2-3 hours. It doesn’t sound like a long time but keep in mind these are moisturizing lip balms so they do wear off easier when compared to a drier lip product. I am happy with reapplying these lip balms, it’s a small sacrifice I can make considering how moisturizing these are.

 

Cherry
Cherry is a must have shade in anyone’s makeup bag. It’s nicely tinted but still very wearable. Since I love bold shades I add more layers and I really love how the color looks on my lips. Cherry is definitely an easy hassle free shade to wear on the go.

Lychee
Lychee is a glossy nude shade that smells exactly like lychees.  I was a little worried about this shade because some nudes can make me look washed out. Surprisingly this shade doesn’t wash me out and adds a glossy finish. It actually goes on pretty clear on my lips. This shade is perfect to pair with smokey eyes or just everyday wear.

Overall I am very satisfied with these lip balms. Although these are advertised as lip balms I feel they do so much more. They offer a lot of pigmentation, feel very moisturizing on the lips and smell delicious. These are always in my makeup bag and I often reach for them a lot.

    The shades are stunning the packaging looks durable and I agree with the scent issue.

    • I actually love the scent.

      • Jackie Harrison

        I cannot handle heavy scent but light yes.

  • Cherry looks similar like the one from Annabelle Twistable Lip Crayon! I have yet to try this because I’m not the biggest fan of sheer, balmy lipsticks but I might pick up Cherry to try, looks pigmented and just very pretty.

  • Simera, I like fruity scented products and I don’t mind reapplying a lip color it is moisturizing… I love Annabelle products too xox

  • rakhshanda

    Wow, both shades are my favorite, these lip colors are looking nice and very affordable too. Great review <3

  • Denise

    I like scented products, so that would be excellent for me! I liked the fact that they are retractable, and that even being lip balms, they have good pigmentation. I liked the red one, that I am sure would be a lovely sheer red on the lips! I only think they could stay longer 🙂
