Vaseline Lip Care Rosy Glow : Budget Buy Alert!

by mehak on November 23, 2010

in lipbalm, lipgloss

Is it a lip balm? Is it a gloss? Is it both? Yess! Or atleast, thats what Vaseline claims about it..
Vaseline says: “Vaseline lip care rosy glow is specially formulated to give you soft tint & glossy lips and gives you 24 hour  moisturized lips.”

As mentioned before, I am a lip balm hoarder and when i saw this little tube just for Rs 60 / 1.5$ , i knew i had to get it ! 

Its the Vaseline Lip Care Rosy Glow in ‘Strawberry Frost’, and i dont know whether to classsify it as a balm or a gloss so lets just call it a lip jelly?

 Like the Colour:  A rosey pinkish red tint- goes on semi sheer but the rosey tint definitely shows up. Its not one of those totally transparent balms.

Like the Texture: Jelly like and feels slightly slick between your lips.Thats something i like- slickness without heavyness

Super Love the Shine: Superglossy- Up until now the Nivea Visage Balm was the shiniest lip balm i had used but in terms of shine factor this Vaseline Rosy Glow beats that hands down

Like the Moisture: Good..not great. I am usually a vaseline junkie- i use the regular vaseline tub on my lips all the time in winters and that is like my saviour literally. This is not as moisturizing as that, but it does a good enough job for a lip balm, keeps them supple and not chapped and lips dont feel parched when it wears off.

Love the Packaging: I love tubes!  Theyr easy to apply

Indifferent about Lasting Power: Needs reapplication every 3-4 hours. I think thats kind of standard for a lip balm. Atleast on me, nothing ever lasts beyond 4 hours. The good thing about this is that though the colour may wear off, the shine remains

Random Other things: One strange thing is that when you put this on, it feels cooling on your lips – kind of like how peppermint is – slightly minty cooling feeling. That tends to last for a while. I didnt really mind it but might not float everyones boat

Smells Yummy: Smells like bubblegum, love it . 

Price: Rs 60/- ( Love that!)

Vaseline lip care rosy glow worn on its own

Overall Verdict: 4/5 – Its my everyday winter lip gloss- great worn on its own or over a lipstick
Other variants: I didnt see any others in the shop and the website doesnt mention em either , but im certain there would be a couple.
Will i repurchase: Yup, i want to know about different flavours if they have any

Good it worked for you. I wasn't so lucky. It smelt like burnt plastic to me so I had to give it away. But I believe it is also available in a light pink version; can't remember the name.
