Collection Mardi Gras Lip Balms | Limited Edition
Thursday, 5 June 2014
With summer just around the corner, Collection have released a range of carnival inspired products including trios of fruity lip balms and bright nail varnishes. Aside from the sweet scents reminiscent of cocktails on the beach and bold, eye-catching packaging, the balms are also extremely hydrating. The Mardi Gras Lip Balms are unsurprisingly similar to Maybelline's Baby Lips but cheaper at £1.99 and in my opinion even better. They come in three gorgeous flavours, Green Apple, Strawberry and Orange and despite being coloured accordingly they apply sheer without transferring. Essentially, the perfect low-budget lip balm.
These vibrant limited edition balms have been criticised for their cheap packaging but really, what more do you need? At only £1.99, they hardly break the bank and you don't feel too naughty buying the whole collection - like I did. In Superdrug, you get one of these tropical flavours when you spend £3.99 or more on Collection products. At those prices, it would be rude not to. Although it is worth noting that the deal does not applying when you're buying the Mardi Gras balms, worth a try!
Whether you're at home or on holiday, these balms are perfect for slipping into your beach bag. Throw in a cocktail and a bikini and you're good to go. What are your summer essentials this year?
