Sara Happ The Lip Slip Review





I’ve been eyeing Sara Happ’s The Lip Slip for a while now and when BeautyHabit released a December promotional code for 20% off all orders, I gladly put in my first order! Everything arrived within two weeks of the date of order and in two separate parcels since The Lip Slip has been on backorder.



Description
From BeautyHabit.com: A lip balm like no other, the lip slip leaves no color, just the richest, glossiest hydration imaginable. After exfoliating with The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ®, smooth a generous amount of this luxe balm onto lips. Let the hydration begin. Made with crushed pearl & infused with sweet almond, jojoba & macadamia nut oils.



The Lip Slip definitely deserves recognition for its super cute packaging! I love how the gold box is topped with a cute white ribbon bow. I need to find a use for this adorable box. The Lip Slip comes in a large 0.5 oz plastic jar. It is very thick, sticky, and emollient. Upon opening and sniffing the balm, I immediately thought of candles. I asked T for her opinion and she thought that it smelled like her grandma. The Lip Slip is a pale pink shade in the jar but is actually clear with a hint of shimmer upon application.

Cost
$24 for 0.5 oz
Purchase from: Beautyhabit.com http://www.beautyhabit.com/product6221.html





Usage
I’ve been using The Lip Slip here and there whenever I feel like my lips need a pick me up. I don’t have dry lips so I can’t state what it’ll do for those with extremely chapped lips but I can definitely say that it is very long lasting. I was drinking something and even after putting my lips to the cup four times, I could still feel The Lip Slip on my lips! Amaaaazing! This balm is going to last me forever. Seriously. It’s huge. It’s plentiful. And since it is super emollient, a little will go such a long way.

I dropped it and it already cracked. :/

My Thoughts
I don’t really like the smell or the fact that the texture is super sticky but everything else about the balm is so luxurious that I just can’t dislike it. I love the packaging and I like that the balm is capable of sitting on my lips for forever. I wake up in the morning after submerging my lips in The Lip Slip before bed and my lips are still super moisturized. What a sweet balm! I would recommend it if someone is looking for a lip splurge but the smell can be quite deterring, in my opinion. That’s just me though.
