Two Overhyped Lip Products !

When the most influential blogger [you know who] did this post on two overhyped lip products there were more than 2 lip products in my mind that I thought were overhyped ! Sadly, I had either given it to somebody or sold them in a blog sale. Finally, I had just two with me - might be it is destined to be only two and not more than that !! So Sups, here is the post with two lip products which 'I' feel is overhyped. 

The Body Shop Born Lippy Lip Balm and Rimmel Show Off Lipstick in Love Me

The Body Shop Born Lippy Lip Balm

I wouldn't even call this a lip balm as it just did nothing to my lips at all. I don't know if TBS changed the formula but I remember liking it looooooong back but now it is just a coloured balm that smells nice. I am not complaining about the pigmentation or the fragrance or even the texture but being a lip balm it doesn't do what it is supposed to do ! In fact there were days when my lips felt all dry and dull after using this one. 

Rimmel Color Show Off Lipsticks

I do not have many Rimmel products but when I got a chance to try them I wanted to pick up at least one Color Show Off lipstick because of all the hype about it. Sadly it felt gritty on my lips and also it made my dry lips even more dry and my lips started peeling very badly ! The more I used it the more painful it was on my lips and even on days when my lips were all well-pampered this one failed on me. Here I am talking only about the formula of these lipsticks and after a few times I used this I never dared to touch it again !!

Do you have any lip products that you feel is overhyped? Do share them here.

  1. oh such a disappointing products..

  2. Aarthi I agree with you on the Born Lippy stuff. It kinda sucks! The consistency is too thin and does nothing to the lips at all.

  3. I've read good things about the Rimmel Lasting Finish ones. Not tempted to try them though. And even though I'm a lip balm addict (I have all the tinted Nivea lip balms), I've never wanted to buy the TBS ones.

    However I read a review on TBS lippies recently and am waiting for the weekend to go buy them. Have you tried those?

    1. Good that you didn't try them Poohkie.. I hate them !

      About the lippies - no I haven't tried them yet but I am hearing good reviews all around..

  4. Oops! That's really bad. I remember not liking this by TBS.
