Swatch, Review - Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm

Zoya has this cute line of Lip Gloss / Lip Balm called "Hot Lips".
A lot of people seem to like them, so obviously I got curious and bought me a couple of tubes.
Here is my review and swatches on Zoya Hot Lips in Minx and Boudoir. :)

*On Lips*



*my thoughts*
I have mixed feelings about this product.
I like cute chubby tube but then, I don't like lip gloss in tube in general. (The tip is just round. I prefer slanted one if it is a tube lip gloss.)
I think both colors are pretty and shiny, but a couple hours later they end up being to sheer to look different enough.
It is nice how they go on very smoothly and make those lines on my lips look less visible, but it feels a little tacky and thick on lips.
Some might prefer lip colors with scent and flavor, but normally I don't. (They both smell like artificial grapes, which is okay. I did not detect any flavor, though. They might have been reformulated?)

To be fair, they do feel moisturizing and did not make lips peel off like some other lip glosses.
And don't let the short sized tube fool you! It contains 12g of jam, that is a lot in my book. I have had these for a while but I can't seem to put a dent in them. ;p
Plus, lip products with no parabens are always nice when you think about it.

Overall, I think this is a nice product. I wouldn't stop my friends if they want to buy them. I am just not sure if I am going to repurchase another tube very soon.

Thanks for reading! :D

  3. the boudoir colour is gorgeous!!! (; you have nice lips btw.. (sounds wrong)

    CMPang x

  4. These colors are really pretty!! So I read on MP's website that if you want to get rid f the tackiness of lipgloss, run ice over it (: I haven't tried it myself but it seems like it would work! The Minx one makes your lips look really pretty! My lips just peel all the time even if I exfoliate them >.<

  5. These two colours really suit you. They make your lips look perfect!

  6. I love how glossy these are! So pretty!

  7. they are great if you are into glossy lips.
    the color fades rather quickly, but the shine goes long way. ;)

  8. aw thank you. you are so sweet! :)

  9. thanks, sweetie! :D
    i can see how Minx would be their best-seller. the gold shimmers are very pretty indeed.
    it is not as tacky as mac lipglass for example, but i prefer something that feels light my lips.
    that ice trick sounds interesting! but does it last? now i am curious. lol

    btw, some lip glosses make your lips peel no matter what you do. mac lipglass is the very example. hope you find something that's pretty as well as comfortable on your cute lips! ;)

  10. haha thank you! :)
    i actually like boudoir a bit better cause it suits my coloring more.
    minx is pretty with strong eye makeup, though. ^-^

  11. hi, Marie
    thanks for visiting and leaving me comments.
    they are moisturizing and overall nice indeed. ;)

  12. lol you are funny, Aki. thanks! :)

  13. I like lip glosses in tubes, so I want to try this out!

    I just realized I hadn't been following you. That's fixed now. Do you have a twitter account?

  14. hi :)
    thanks for adding me to your list!
    actually i don't have twitter or facebook account. i know..i live under the rock..lol
    enjoy the rest of the weekend. :D

  15. Yeah I agree Lipglass is really sticky >.< I just hate lipgloss because of the fact that it's sticky. I only use lip balm now days haha.

  16. actually, on top of my head, neutrogena lipgloss or revlon colorburst are not sticky at all. maybe you wanna try them. and rosebud salve is my favorite lip balm. :)
