This balm heals my lips like no other - Review: The Lip Slip One Luxe Balm by Sara Happ

Today I will be reviewing (Yes! finally!) a lip balm by Sara Happ. The picture above comes from the official website, and below is the picture taken by me.
"The Lip Slip - One Luxe Balm" is a sister to "The Lip Scrub" which has many flavours to choose from. This lip balm is housed into a cute litte golden cardboard box which reflects light, the box gives a feeling of luxury. lol. The balm, is in candy-floss pink color with tiny golden shimmer in it.
FYI, the official website says: " the lip slip® is the latest from Sara Happ, creator of the cult favorite lip scrub line. A balm like no other, the lip slip® leaves no color, just the richest, glossiest hydration imaginable. Wear it all day. Wear it overnight. Results are immediate. We’d have it no other way."
Features of this lip balm: "Infused with Sweet Almond, Jojoba & Macadamia nut oils."
The inspiration for this lip balm comes from "The supple feel of a shimmery gold YSL calfskin bag. A bottle of Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. Your favorite camisole; soft, sweet, nude, girly
and grand. The world doesn’t need another lip balm. It needs the right one. Slip into this."
The balm smells like dessert and I adore the texture! It feels like butter, only better. It resembles the Nutella chocolate cream you use on bread with a spatula. it isn't sticky at all, and I use it during day and night and this thing heals my chapped lips like no other in a weather of -4 degrees celcius. My lips are fully hydrated and I can still feel the balm when I woke up (a sign of long-lastingness!). It doesn't give a tint or color on my lips, which is always a plus as I prefer nude lips. 15 grams in a jar might not be much, but you only need a tiny dip of your finger each time to spread it on your lips. This jar will last me for a year I reckon.

Here's a picture of the sheen and hydration this balm imparted on my lips, can you feel the smoothness and buttery-ness of the texture? Yum....

This balm is sold at USD $24 with 15g in the jar. If I ever run out of it, I will surely buy it again. Right now, I'm more interested to try its sister - The Lip Scrub. If I'm correct, the balm and the scrub are available only online at its official website!


  1. this lipbalm sounds wonderful! and it's packaged so beautifully!!!

    the ysl compact foundation has a light powder foundation smell like any other normal ones.

  2. you definitely have got me lemming for it now! I really need a good lip balm, my lips are really dry.

  3. Hi, and thanks for dropping by =)
    Here's the recipe I used for the caramels:

    I used HONEY instead of corn syrup (same idea, similar chemical reaction happening here to prevent the sugar crystals from forming when it cools), and cooked it to about 245degrees F. I used a candy thermometer (About $3 USD).

    Hope that helps!

  4. i need it ASAP! my lips are chapping and its hideous not kissable T.T
