It’s day 20 of my Joik advent calendar 2017* (currently on sale if you fancy getting one!) and today I got a Joik Silky Lip Balm in Velvet Red (7g).
I was really excited to use this – just look how beautiful it is! Fortunately I wasn’t disappointed. It’s not as opaque as it seems in the bullet, but I’m pleased about this as it definitely is more of a lip balm than a lipstick. This means it’s much easier to wear and apply and doesn’t wear down in an unusual way. It’s lovely and moisturising and adds a nice red tint without being too strong. For me it’s the perfect type of item for this time of year. It’s quite similar to the Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tints* (which I seriously adore – see my review) though I don’t find it’s quite as long-lasting or moisturising as those.
