Remember how I told you in my Himalaya lip butter review that I’d be on the look-out for the next new lip balm by the time I’m done typing it? Well, here is the latest addition to my stash and the newest member of my lip balm family. This is my new love and I’m hoping the other balms don’t get jealous of all the attention I’m giving this. Who knows….one day I may find this battered, shattered and murdered by the others . Oh no! I’d better rush and say Hi to everyone else…….!!! Meanwhile, you guys enjoy the review

Packaging: Lip Ice
It comes in a carded packaging with complete product details printed at the back. The casing of the lip balm is very alluring and refreshingly different. Since this is LipIce “color”, you’d expect bright, colorful packaging. Instead, they’ve opted for a brushed silver tube peppered with twinkling stars…like a serene night sky . The lid is pure white and reminds me of fluffy white clouds Overall, it looks like a fairy’s wand. I can imagine myself holding it high and going *swish swish* in the air and magically spreading pixie dust onto everyone’s lips so that they glisten under the night sky. Of course, those who can’t stand shimmery lips would hate me . But then, I’ll pick up my wand again and…okay, okay, I’ll stop here Yes, I can be quite loony (Read: VERY loony)
My experience with Lipice Color Naughty Orange :-
So, where were we?? Ah yes…pixie dust! Oh sorry, I meant LipIce Orange (you must be really wanting to kick me by now ) In the midst of all that gibberish, I failed to mention that the packaging is moderately sturdy. I say “moderately” since it looks tough on the outside but I can feel something wobbling inside .The cap snaps shut nice and tight so it won’t open up while travelling. In the tube, the color looks bronze-orange with micro, multi-colored shimmer. I’m seriously not a fan of such shades and was very hesitant to use it. But on the lips…wowwww! On the lips, the color is a sheer peachy orange and it looks superbly natural. In fact, this suits me better than the pink tint. So much so, that I’ve been ignoring my lippies and rushing to this when I have to go out. I’ve slowly begun to realize that I should give all the pinks some rest and move onto peachy orange-based tints.
Although it is sheer, the color can be built up to give medium pigmentation. But when swiped more than twice, the color tends to get patchy and application does not look even. The shimmer is only visible up close and under bright lights. The formula glides easily onto lips and looks good on freshly exfoliated lips. But if your lips are cracked, this has a tendency to settle into fine lines especially when swiped more than twice. It is indeed moisturizing and keeps lips soft and supple for about 2 hours. I’ve even found it to feel mildly tingly and cool but strangely, I don’t see any menthol in the list of ingredients Though it is hydrating, the effects are temporary and lips go back to square one once the lip balm has faded. I don’t think this will repair cracked lips or improve the condition of the lips.
In the pic on the left, can you see that the color has settled into the lines of my palm? (I’m not sure if it’s clearly visible since the photo has been resized. Please take out your magnifying glasses ). Also notice that the color looks more orange on my palm and more peach on my arm. So, this may show up differently on different people.
