Melvita 2-in-1 Gloss Balm

Enriched with the "3 Honey" complex to keep lips nourished and protected, the Melvita 2-in1 Gloss Balm ($15) is a lovely natural gloss for dry winter lips. It is almost like a clear gloss with just subtle flecks of finely milled gold shimmer!

Like most Melvita's formulations, this one too is made from natural ingredients sans parabens. The gloss is a great pick for winter lips and since it is enriched with honey, it helps retain moisture for a long time. The wand is just like any other lipgloss, perfect to be used alone or over any lipstick. On my pigmented lips, it looks better when worn on top of a matte lipstick that can otherwise be drying this time of the year. The gold shimmer isn't too prominent, but helps add a healthy sheen and makes lips look fuller in a natural way. The gloss has an extremely strong scent and a sweet taste. I don't have a problem with the sweet honey taste, but I wish the smell was just a little toned down and if you have a very sensitive nose, keep in mind that the scent will linger around for quite sometime.

Other than that, there's nothing I don't like about Melvita's Honey Gloss Balm. When topped over a lipstick, it surprisingly is long lasting and is a great gloss for this time of the year that you can throw into your purse even for touch ups. On its own it feels very balmy, smooth and keeps lips trouble free while adding a very subtle hint of barely there sparkle!
