I can’t hear the word Shills without thinking:
I got Shillssssssssssssssss
So I made my first venture into Shills (A Taiwanese brand – thanks to Alison for letting me know!). The brand seems to be a bit of a mish-mash of things, a bit like Benefit bit with more variation.
I had to buy the Vanilla Milk Lip Balm because how cute is the packaging?
I love that moo moo cow. I also love vanilla so its win-win.
You get 15ml of this lip balm so its fairly standard. Although I’m not a fan of tub lip balms – not so hygienic, I have plenty of them and they still work fine.
Then I had a look at the balm itself:
oooohh I’m not impressed. Since this is a milk lip balm I presumed it would be a milky coloured, rich cream textured lip balm. This looks like a vaseline type lip balm – I prefer creamy ones to overly greasy balms.
It does smell of vanilla though but its not as soft, as milky as I expected.
Here is the lip balm:
Its not a bad lip balm at all. I felt it was a little greasy (I like to use lip balm then put lipstick on the top) and it wasn’t as hydrating as some of my other balms.
I also really did want this to be a little club of creamy lip balm goodness! But its not.
Apparently its supposed to plump your lips too! Example:
There, you can go from being a Normal Person to Lindsey Lohan when you use this lip balm.
A-ha! That’s why this felt like a cheap Vaseline based lip balm…because it…erm….is.
Well, anyway. Its a decent balms, I doubt anyone will hate it but because I have so many expensive and stunning lipbalms I doubt this one will get much of a look in day to day.
However, I don’t regret buying it! It was worth it for the cow!
