Miki Lip Balm - Red Apple

Miki cosmetics are those that don't seem to have a stand, the ones that you get as part of a 10 piece birthday gift containing other small knick knacks, the ones that are in small baskets on the counter as you go to buy a beauty haul and catch your eye. Their products cost token prices of about three dollars and they are always mini and adorable.

Somehow I found myself possessing an adorable little lip balm with the cutest packaging. According to their website (which is very cool, for your information) this lip balm doesn't exist. I couldn't find any evidence that they produced such a product, but I know that they do because I own it.

It is shaped as an apple the unscrews in the middle to reveal a bright pink balm. It smells very strongly of raspberry fruit, however it does have a soapy/shampoo kind of smell to it which does result in slight hesitance in regards to using it as a lip product.

The formula is okay, it is not very moisturising but it doesn't seem to be overly drying either. It lasts an okay amount of time and gives a bit of a shine to the lips. I can still smell it once it has been applied which I think is quite good, but I guess that depends on whether you like the smell of it or not. It has no taste, feels a little greasy...there really isn't much to say about it to be honest.

This is by no means an amazing product. It is a bit moisturising, a bit glossy, has a bit of a tint to it, smells a bit nice...to be honest the best way to describe it is 'a bit.' It is however very cute, and at a cost of about three dollars who could resist? Even if you just want it for display, I say go for it!

I give this product 5 out of 10 because it is neither good nor bad...just 'a bit.'

  1. omg I have the Miki lip balm in Green apple which I got from a pharmacy :D

    I agree, it's not very moisturising, just a bit. I only bought it because of the cute packaging and I thought maybe the inside would be like the EOS lip balms :P

    1. I would love it if it was similar to the EOS lip balms, but unfortunately it is not :(
      Glad to know that this product really does exist, unlike what the website was telling me! Haha :)

  6. Where did you buy it from? I've never seen it in the shops and the website doesn't list which stores stock them.
