Review: Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm in 030 Don't Think Just Pink!

Don't Think, Just Pink! Lip product time! I've been doing some real progress on my promise to myself to use more lip products. I may own a decent bunch of lipsticks, colored balms and glosses but last year I really barely touched any of them! After making a conscious decision every time I did my make up to try to use even a very light lip product now I can proudly say that I'm back into using lip products!

This was sent to me from Pam from Jade in the Palace beauty blog as part of a year end beauty gift swap last year! She sent me an amazing package and this was one of the lovely bits inside!

My bare lips! They are super pink and very deep, very pigmented on their own!

Packaging & Product!

Packaged very simply, I really like how the color of the lipbalm matches the color of the tube! The silver cap and bottom of the crayon is also a very pretty shiny touch which goes with the silver text on the tube. I love how European drugstore brands tend to package their products to look very neat and very classy, nothing very cheaply or frail looking which is much appreciated!

Much like other crayon balm type lip products this one is a twist up crayon that's very easy to use. Off hand, I already love the color, it's such a lovely wearable medium pink, surprisingly a shade that I really don't have in my collection. I either have berries, rose shades or hot fuchsias and a few reds and nudes but very few pink shades.

I really love the color, I don't have any pinks like this that are light but yet work so well on my skin!

Upon application, this product is smooth, balmy and slightly glossy looking. I like how it isn't too slippery and has a good amount of color as well as a smooth finish. This is honestly my first lip crayon product that I'm happy with and will continue to wear! My first lip crayon product was from the first line of Revlon Just Bitten Kissable lipbalm stains and they were very nice in terms of color but felt dry so quickly and wore off very patchy after using them many times!

This product feels moisturizing for much longer and fades off much more nicely, it's not obvious and hard to reapply product over like how some others don't layer well. I was also very glad to find out that Catrice here in Singapore have brought some of the shades from this line in so if and when I want more in the future I will just go straight to the pharmacy here!

Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm in 030 Don't Think Just Pink

Paid: €4.29 EUR or about $7.40 SGD/ $5.80 USD (Gifted to me in a beauty swap!)

Recommend: Yes! This is a very beautifully pigmented and very moisturizing lip balm crayon and how it lasts and feels on the lips is very impressive. For someone with always slightly dry lips, it's wonderful to finally have a product that's so comfortable!

Repurchase: Yes! I would go back for at least one more color! I do love this formulation but would like to try lip crayons from more brands too!

Bottom line: Great in all ways, the color, texture, hydrating qualities and how it fades off very nicely are all looked for traits in a lip crayon. I would recommend this to all ladies to try and they are found locally at Guardian outlets here in Singapore!
