Review: Mentholatum Lip Ice Sheer Color (Strawberry and Shimmer)

Mentholatum newly launched Lip Ice Sheer Color comes in 3 variants Strawberry , Fragrance Free, Shimmer.

In this post, I will be sharing my review on 2 of the 3 variants.

Can you guess which is Strawberry and which is Shimmer?

Let me show you the difference between the 2.

Strawberry Lip Moisturiser looks colorless but it will change color once in contact with the skin. Shimmer Lip Moisturiser looks very shimmery right? It changes color when in contact with the skin too!

Let's check out the swatch! o(ω)o

After leaving on my skin for a short while, 
the pink shade became darker.

I think that applying a suitable lip color makes a lot of difference to a person's appearance and I really love the shade that turned out on my lip. 

My thoughts:
I love the pinkish girly shade, love the oh-so-sweet strawberry fragrance, love the glossy, plump and moisturised lip that I have after applying the Strawberry Lip Moisturiser. This lip product is really very moisturising and it does not give me chap lip even after removing the product. The downsides for me will be the short strawberry fragrance which is hardly noticeable after a few minutes, and the lip moisturiser also feels a little heavy on my lip. If this lip moisturiser can give a light-weight, natural feeling on the lip, that will be much better. Overall, I still love the 3-in-1 result; moisturiser, lip colour and lip gloss in one product.

My rating: 3.5/5

Price and places to purchase: $7.50, available in Watsons.

My thoughts:
This is my first time trying quite a dark shade on my lip. I think the shade looks quite good on me but I'm still not really comfortable with it. Shimmer Lip Moisturiser and Strawberry Lip Moisturiser works about the same except that Shimmer Lip Moisturiser is less glossy in texture but has more glittery appearance. If you love having a glittery lip, you will love this too. 

My rating: 3/5

Price and places to purchase: $7.50, available in Watsons.

Hope this post have helped you understand more about these products.
