I'm betting all my makeup that you know by now how much I love tinted lip balms. That's why my heart leapt when Chantzy sent me a package full of NYC Lip Slider Tinted Lip Balms and was even more ecstatic when I finally got the package after more than a month of waiting. I easily found two favorites among the shades - Sugar Baby and Sugar Angel - and I will be reviewing those two.

I love these lip balms because they are moisturizing, not as sticky as MAC lipglasses, glossy, and best of all, non-waxy. They smell and taste sweet, sort of artificial, but nothing my nose and taste buds cannot tolerate. I can rely on these lip balms alone when I want just sheer color on my lips or I can use them in tandem with a lipstick for a more glossy finish. They do not dry out my lips and when I apply them before sleeping, I wake up with smoother and more supple lips.
People who are kind of OC won't find the packaging hygienic as you'll need to dip your finger on the tin to get some gloss. But that's where the use of lip brushes come in, that is if you're not too lazy to use a lip brush. It is sometimes difficult to slide off the cover especially when you are in a hurry. Oh, the packaging reminds me of ELF lip glosses in tins.
Overall, these are nice tinted lip balms to own but I can live without these. If only these were a bit more pigmented. However, I saw some of these being sold on eBay.ph and I bought a back up of Sugar Angel. It also sucks that these aren't locally available so you'd have to purchase these online. But hey, for just a few bucks (less than Php 100), these are pretty good. I'd give these lippies a 3.5/5. :)
Sugar Angel - a sheer coral shade that turns to a very pretty sheer coral pink hue on my lips. :) I imagine this is MAC TLC in Gentle Coral though this isn't anywhere close to that.
Sugar Baby - a lovely red shade gives my lips a sheer cherry red color.
Have you tried these lippies?
Happy Sunday, super awesome peeps! :P
