I’ve always been a bit curious about the products from Em Cosmetics. Over the summer I purchased a lipstick and waterliner (eyeliner) and felt a bit mixed.
Over the past two months they’ve had amazing deals (50% sucks me in every time) and figured I’d purchase a wider selection of products.
Today I’m going over the Em Cosmetics Pillow Plush Cushiony Lip Balm in the shades Berries and Bubblegum. That is a mouthful!
Here’s what Em Cosmetics has to say about the balm:
this balm has a creamy, buttery texture that conditions your lips with shea butter and vitamin e. wear it under lip color or alone—plus, it has a yummy vanilla scent!
I don’t really notice any scent… which is better than something heavily scented. The texture is a bit sticky, soft, and is lightly moisturizing. Berries is much more pigmented than Bubblegum.
I think the packaging is adorable! I love the boxes, love the font used (issues I know!), and love the white.
It’s not a super intensely hydrating balm… but it is lightly moisturizing. It lasted on me about 4 hours which isn’t bad at all. There’s no shimmer / sparkle / glitter to these at all.
Here’s the swatches! On the left I shot this in full on bright sunlight and on the right, in the shade.
Would I recommend these? Actually, I would! I like the hint of color and that it doesn’t have a strong scent or flavor. I also appreciate the moisturizing benefits especially this time of year.
