Makeup Review: EOS Lip Sphere

With the rough and tough winter weather taking its' toll on my lippies, they were in need of some serious lip-loving rehab so I turned to a trusty favorite of many beauty gurus and bloggers, the EOS Lip Sphere. I know I'm a little late, but I think it's never really too-late to jump on the bandwagon and finally experience what is being hyped up in the beauty community. Especially when it's as cute as this little sphere of lip balm is!

EOS Lip Sphere in Sweet Mint

Living in the North-Eastern United States has its highs and lows, one of lows being the tremendous amount of snow and cold wind we get up here. However, this does mean something good for all of you, you get to read about my trials and tribulations with lip balms during these cold months and if they can withstand the weather here, you are in for a treat.

Consider this one a small treat. This slippery-smooth balm (yes I did just slather some on to test this theory!) leaves behind a clear gluten-free, paraben-free, petrolatum-free and phthalate-free moisturizing layer to get lips back into shape in no time without the added chemicals. Plus, this balm is 95% organic as certified by the USDA. This easy-to-apply moisturizing balm also contains good-for-your-lips ingredients like Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil to keep them healthy and looking their best.

Speaking of looking good, these handy little spheres are certainly an eye-catcher. On Christmas day my cousin's girlfriend even caught me slathering some balm on after dinner and immediately asked what it was due to the unusual shape. Plus, I find these super easy to find in any blackhole purse, no matter how large or over-stuffed it is! However, there is one slight drawback to the shape, it isn't exactly pocket-friendly. The sphere makes a quite large bump in any pants pocket, so if you are looking for something to keep in your pocket right beside your phone, keep this one at home like I do.

I have to say, from all the raving around the beauty community I was expecting something totally revolutionary, but what I found is that it's just an a pretty good lip balm in a unique shape, which is somewhat revolutionary, but not completely what I was hoping for. This balm is very moisturizing and with its natural ingredients it gets an A+ from me, but at the end of the day, it is just a clear, scented balm.

The Stats:
 - Very Moisturizing
 - Leaves Behind Smooth, Supple Lips
 - Easy to Apply
 - Purse Friendly, Not Pocket Friendly
 - Comes In Six Scents/Flavors
 - Sweet Mint flavor leaves behind a slight tingly sensation
 - 95% Organic, 100% Natural. Paraben and Petrolatum Free
 - Contains Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil
 - Retails around $2.50 - $3.50
