Ah she’s finally lost it you’re thinking, having blogged about everything under the sun she’s finally resorted to random novelty buys. Well frankly, when you review a lot of products weird ones tend to catch your eye so I couldn’t resist this Twister lip balm from Topshop! I’ll say it right now, this isn’t a product every girl desperately needs in their handbag, in fact, it’s random and mad, but I’m a big kid so I needed to see if this was as sickly sweet and delicious as I was hoping it would be!
Packaging wise, it’s as cute as a button and at €4.50, at least it’s not going to break the bank. But the question is, is it even worth the €4.50 to begin with?
Well firstly, it does indeed smell like a Twister ice cream which is no bad thing, especially now since it’s too cold for me to eat one or stick my head in the freezer to sniff the real deal. The balm itself it a pretty bright pink shade that has a similar feel as a Maybelline Baby Lips but without the same sheen. It isn’t going to cure cracked lips or other woes, but it felt comfortable on and thankfully, not cheap. I thought this would be a clear balm so I was happy to discover it actually has a pink tint that looks very natural but quite nice on and would easily be a day time shade I’d use.
But is it essential? Is there a hundred better balms on the market? Well it’s certainly not a must have, but it’s cute, it’s different and it smells like an iconic Irish ice pop. I’d actually think this would make a cute stocking filler or a great pressie for mates who are living abroad and miss things like the smell of a humble Twister. So yes, it’s worth the €4.50, but only if you see the fun side!
So girls, do you think this is ridiculous or are you strangely drawn to it?
