Would you like a grape macaron? How about a green apple macaron? If you’re a French macaron fan like myself (I like to think I was a fan of them before they were cool…and were subsequently knocked off the “cool” pedestal by doughnuts and cupcakes), I’m guessing your answer is yes. But take a closer look – do these cookies look a little different to you? Well, your sharp eye does not fool you – these aren’t actually French macarons, they are….
MACARON LIP BALM, by It’s Skin, a Korean beauty brand!! Ahhh! Like many of my Sephora purchases, these tiny lip balms were staring at me while I waited in line to pay for my purchases. I know I’m not the only one to go into Sephora for one thing and walk out with 5 things I didn’t know I needed, right?
After debating between grape or green apple, I decided I absolutely needed both.
Both lip balm flavors featured a fun and light scent and intense hydration without feeling tacky or greasy. The lip balms don’t offer a color tint, so if you wear lip pencil or lipstick, these minis shouldn’t distort the color (I don’t wear lip color because I’m lazy, ha!). I keep one in each of the two bags I use most often, I’m putting them to good use.
My only disappointment is that there are apparently two more “flavors” available – and I haven’t tried them yet! I might have to do some online shopping to fulfill that need.
If you’re looking for a surprisingly high quality lip balm with super cute packaging, I’d definitely recommend the It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm, available at Sephora. Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
And because I was bored…
