Mmm, product packaging...

I was wandering in CCO a couple of weeks ago and was so happy to run into a MAC Hello Kitty item! It's a tinted lip conditioner with SPF 15 in Popster. The name, packaging and cheerful color had me at Hello! I'm not someone who runs out to buy stuff from every MAC launch, but this is probably one of the collections I wish I had a few more items of (that and Style Warrior).

Although the color looks scary bright, I put it on and loved how it blended out to be a very pleasant pink flush on the lips. The left swatch is unblended, and right is blended. I like how it goes from baby pink to dusty rose.


This little luxury is tucked into my makeup clutch and goes everywhere with me. I love taking it out and putting it on at random times of the day as a little pick me up. But all indulgence aside, it's not very conditioning on my lips. It's a waxy, almost matte effect. Don't expect dewy wet lips (now this is actually a good thing if your significant other does not like sticky kisses). I was expecting Vaseline with a tint, in a cute package. Not the case. If you have super dry lips, get a different lip balm. This product gets props mainly for the pleasant color and Prozac packaging (Prozac because its so cute that it literally enhances my mood).

I have this but don't ever use it. I should pull it out and use it more because it does make me happy to look at it! It's just too cute! :-)

LOL Divija, I like your little change of heart. I always shook my head in disbelief when I saw a lot of bloggers say that product packaging is a big factor in their purchase decisions. But now, I get it. ;)
