This is going to be a new series I will add to http://www.ccosmeticchaos.com. The week before the new Ipsy bag comes out, I am going to be reviewing the products that came in the previous months bag, and essentially when it boils down to it, would I have purchased it?
Here is the unbagging video if you are interested!
Mongongo Lip Balm by Jersey Shore Cosmetics
I can honestly start this off by saying I would not purchase this. That being said, it’s only because I NEVER buy lip balm, and if I am buying lip balm there is no way I would be paying $10 for it.
I do like the product don’t get me wrong, it smells amazing, has lived in my purse, and I have found myself reaching for it. The formula is amazing but the packaging looks dollar store. (Coming from me that seems ridiculous since I almost exclusively shop for deals at the D-Store lately… but… you know… disregard that).
There is no additional colour or sheen, just a nice moisture stick. Happy I have it? Yes of course, it’s a lovely product, but unless you are prone to only using organic cosmetics I would not say it’s worth the $10 price tag.
