Ilia Lip Conditioner review and swatches
I got the Ilia Mini Tinted Lip Conditioner Trio from the US thanks to a friend of mine. I’ve been quite curious about the lip conditioners for a while, and was glad I could try them in the mini set. The set consists of three super tiny lip conditioners in shades Blossom Lady, Bang Bang, and Arabian Knights.
I mean they are tiny, I feel like I’ll go through all of them in a month or sth lol. They are also not as sturdy as the full sized ones, and one broke on my first application. I have read reviews of bad scents of these lips, and I didn’t really worry about it that much when I ordered them. However, I do agree that they do have a weird scent (at least for me) that smalls chemical-y and thus makes me not want to use them. I have no doubt on their performance though, the formula is soft and sheer, just as a lip conditioner is supposed to be. I think its good for those who want healthy lips with a flush of color, and can stand the scent.
Here’s the official description:
Our first product and a cult classic. Beautifully lightweight lip color meets nourishing balm.
In the world of lipstick and lip balms, our award winning Tinted Lip Conditioner finds middle ground and provide a good dose of lip care with color. Blended with a high percentage of organic ingredients, and available in a wide variety of shades, it’s a must have for those who don’t want to use a mirror but do want to pull a chic, understated case out of their bag. Built for those on-the-go, with color that nourishes and builds on each swipe, it’s no coincidence the initials are TLC.
Below are the swatches. It’s a nice tint. Too bad I don’t like the small so I didn’t use these often.
I also got three full sized Tinted Lip conditioners in shades Nobody’s Baby, Dizzy, and These Days at the same time. They are in the same formula, and still have that weird chemical-ly scent that I hate. Too bad I won’t get to use you guys much :(
Below are closeups of each shade.
