My new obsession | Glossier Balm Dotcom

You know you love a lip balm when you stop wearing your favourite, signature red lipstick to work every day, and start flaunting a natural, glossy, nourishing lip instead. One day last week, I went to work wearing my go-to MAC Lady Danger, and by lunchtime, it had been replaced with one of these babies. And I’m one of those people that concerns everyone when I’m not wearing a bold lip. If I forget my lipstick, I get everyone asking if I’m okay or if I’m not feeling great. So this is a big deal.

I avoided the hype surrounding Glossier for as long as I could manage. Finally, the cute packaging and promise of cake scented lip balm drew me in.

I also only meant to buy one Balm Dotcom, but they have a deal if you buy three, and it meant I’d get free delivery then too. So of course I needed three lip balms.

And while you’d think these are all the same, I actually use them all very differently!

Firstly, I went for the Birthday Balm Dotcom, which not only tastes like cake, but also has amazing holographic packaging and a tiny bit of sparkle added to the product. This is my ‘keep in the handbag’, ‘add over lipstick that’s been on for too many hours’ lip balm. It freshens up a worn out makeup, adds a bit of plumpness to my lips, and gives me a hit of sweetness when I’ve craving actual cake.

The Cherry Balm Dotcom has to be my favourite. I love me a red lip, but sometimes, it’s just a bit too high maintenance for everyday wear. This product gives you a hint of colour AND tastes like cherry drops (who remembers these sweets?! So good).

And because these products do actually moisturise my lips, I use the coconut one as part of my skincare routine. You can use these on any dry patches on your body, so it’s great to have a clear one of these (without glitter or red tint) to put on overnight.

I’m now a lip balm convert and I’m choosing to wear one of these at least a few days a week, as well as overnight. So that’s a win in my books! Now what else do I need from Glossier?…

    These sound so good, love how you’ve switched up your red lip in favour of these balms, they must be good! I’ve been lusting after some Glossier for ages, late to to the party I know! I’ve got my eye on the Cloud Paints but wouldn’t mind one or two of these too!

    Ahhh you’ve completely sold me! I just ordered the rose one and I am now so excited for it to arrive! Like you I’ve avoided the glossier hype for a long time but I just needed to give in! Birthday is next on my list to try!
