Benefit Cha Cha Balm & Lollibalm Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm: Review and Swatches
If you are a fan of Benefit lip/cheek stains like me, you probably jumped out of your seat when Benefit anounced the release of the Hydrating Tinted Lip Balms ($22 CAD each) that complemented each of the pre-existing stains. These adorably packaged balms not only provide an irresistible sheer shine but they are also formulated with jojoba and mango butter that keepsyour lips soft and moisturized. To see my thoughts and swatches of the Cha Cha Balm and Lollibalm, click......

Packaging:
The balms come in plastic bullets coated with a layer of shiny, metallic paint, much like their lip/cheek stain counterparts. The design is nothing short of adorable because Benefit always knows how to win a girl's heart.

Formulation & Pigmentation:
Cha Cha Balm:
This is a tinted lip balm with just a hint of creamy, pastel orange color. The product has a subtle rose scent and feels very nice and moisturizing on the lips. The pigmentation is very sheer so this really is just a normal lip balm that gives the lips a natural shine.

Lollibalm:
This one is a pale orchid-tinted balm. Just like Cha Cha Balm, it has a subtle rose scent and a very sheer pigmentation. These balms last on the lips for about two hours before wearing off.

Both heavily swiped many times.
Overall:
These are no doubt very good, high-quality lip balms with just a hint of color. However, because the price point is so high, I don't think the value is that great but with such an adorable packaging, Benefit fans will still want all of them to match their favorite lip/cheek stains.

Availability:
Benefit is available in stores and online at Sephora and Benefit.com.
