The Lip Slip by Sara Happ Review & Swatches

The Lip Slip by Sara Happ: One Luxe Balm ($24)
and a moody cow keychain that says:
“helps keep a smile on your face when the whole world has gone mad”

Yet another review brought about as a result of the fabulous generosity of Nicole! I’d blogged about Sara Happ’s Lip Slip HERE, then forgotten about it for a bit until Candace posted her thoughts on this product in a comment:

“Ladies, this is the only lip balm that has actually functioned like a lip balm for me. It has a little bit of shimmer in it, that doesn’t really make your lips shimmery…just kind of….glowy. It is not thick, but not thin textured either….it has consistency and STAYS ON. It absorbs into your lips, and is a winner for me! I think I am going to order a couple more! I may give Jason a tub to use too, since when we get to Iraq it will wreak havoc on our faces and lips.”

Now for those of you who don’t know, Candace is the queen of lip products, whether they be lipsticks, glosses, conditioners, etc. You have a lip question, Candace can probably answer it–so when she says something good, it’s going to be good!

So when I received a package in the mail from Nicole a few days back (thank you thank you!), I was ecstatic to see Sara Happ’s Lip Slip in there. Apparently Nicole also tried it and loved it so much that she felt I had to have it =). And if I value anybody’s opinion when it comes to products that I’ll love, it’s Nicole’s.

First of all how cute is the little golden box that it comes in? The Lip Slip is seriously my new product obsession~it’s just that good.

The first time that I used this I managed to make a rather large dent in the surface as I thought that this would be similar in texture to a Korres Lip Butter or Carmex (aka pretty solid)–but nope, it’s a soft, gooey substance that reminds me of melted taffy. Slip into some of this and your lips will not only be sheathed in long-lasting moisture, but they’ll take on this pretty, soft-focus glow.

A better look at the shimmery bits.

Lip Slip is infused with Sweet Almond, Jojoba & Macadamia nut oils, and makes an immediate and noticeable difference in the condition of your lips. Wear this as an overnight treatment and you’ll awaken to soft, luscious pouty lips that’ll have you wondering, “Are those mine?”; use it during the day for some subtle shimmer and shine and continued hydration.

Swatch of Lip Slip

The first time that I used this overnight I was seriously amazed by how soft and plump my lips looked the next morning. And while $24 may seem like (and admittedly is) a lot to pay for a lip treatment, The Lip Slip is easily the longest-wearing lip conditioner that I’ve ever tried. I can slick on some Lip Slip, eat breakfast, drink a bottle of water, have a snack, drink some more water, and make it through lunch with this stuff still clinging tenaciously to my lips–this stuff will easily last for 6-7 hours.

Lip Swatch of Lip Slip

The Lip Slip provides some major hydration–notice that all the little lines on my lips caused by dryness seem to have plumped up? I’m usually hesitant to recommend what I consider to be somewhat pricey products, but this is something that I’d definitely purchase for all my friends and loved ones, and I’d recommend that you do the same.

Nicole purchased her Lip Slip from B-Glowing and was more than happy with their CS so if you’re interested in purchasing this, definitely click on over!
