Just how many Lip Balms does a hooman need???

How many lip balms do you have?  I see so many shows talking about lipbalm addiction, I wonder if I fit the criteria..

Biotique Lip Plumping Balm Pink
Biotique Lip Plumping Lip Balm - a gift from a friend.  I don't really like products
labelled to be "lip plumping" because the plumpers usually work by irritating/
tingling the lips to make them look plumper.  This one though doesn't do much in the
plumping effect, which I am thankful for, and leaves a pretty pink tint on my lips.

Carmex Lip Balm for Dry Cracked Lips Review
Carmex Lip Balm- this one I absolutely don't like.  I know it gets rave reviews
from a lot of people, but the Carmex lip balm did nothing for me :(
Best Cheap Inexpensive Lip Protection Balm Vaseline Tub Review
Trusty old Vaseline - and why do I have so many of these?  Never know...what
if the world runs out of Vaseline...

My absolute must-have from the list is, of course, Burt's Bees, but everything else is good too (I am ignoring the Carmex lip balm) and more importantly easily available in India.  So what's your favorite lip balm?

    ReplyDelete
  15. there is never a dearth of mad > 10 lip balm users....me love the club

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hmmmm..is kind of normal..it didn't plump my lips..which also means I did not get that stupid stinging sensation with it. It gives a very slight tint to the lips and if I use it all the time, its kind of nice pretty pretty. Would be nice for someone who doesn't have very pigmented lips..like a natural colour :D But its not super moisturizing and all..I have to keep reapplying it :) It was a gift from a friend..you know Ikky..Ik..she is on IMBB all the time now..she gave me.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Of course you are going to love it..you are mad yourself :D :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. Rads u mentioned u havent used TBS but the 1st balm is apna The Body Shop only...me confused....

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ohhhhooo me so confusing..no see..this like lipstick tube naa..me don't think of it as lip balm..though well I suppose it is. For me lip balm means packaging should be plastic kinds...you told naa that Born Lippy and that Cocoa one..me was thinking of that and said ke not tried TBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. the nature co. does allow shopping online at their website
    the mac conditioner costs a bomb.. totally worth it for me since it's amazingly tinted
    i love the way it tastes too :D

    ReplyDelete
  59. I checked their website once, but wasn't too sure about what to buy. Might try some tine now..after reading all the recs and reviews :D

    ReplyDelete
  60. i really wanna try their coffee scrub.. smells heavenly and works well too!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Coffee scrub....wowwww...that sounds nice..you should give a list of things to try from them..will be useful for people like me who can only stare at their website :(

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hi Rads,
    Thats a big collection...how's the Avon thingie as in quality & tint...
    Rajeshwari

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hii..your name is showing now :) Avon - it's a tinted lip balm, so if you have seen the Nivea lip balms its kind of like that. If you have not-so-pigmented lips, it gives a faint colour to it. At least the shade I have gives a pinkish tint to it. As for lip balm properties - it is decent..keeps my lips from drying. Not superb, but decent.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thanks..I typed in my name as a backup...since i am allergic to most lipsticks i mostly have to do with tinted balms and glosses.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Ohh..allergic?? Is it Maybelline..I read somewhere someone had written - she keeps sneezing with it :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Two mosts in one sentence...i am creative that way..(where are the smileys when you need them)..Goodnight..

    ReplyDelete
  67. Good night :D :D No smileys..am tech challenged..couldn't figure out how to add them on blogger :(

    ReplyDelete
  68. No, Maybelline poor thing is a saviour for me, MeLord the culprit is LAKME!!! but Elle 18 is okay (weird na..)and Avon is ok too, didn't dare try higher ends, me and me glosses are happy together..

    ReplyDelete
  69. Okayy :D :D I never had any problems with Maybelline either..used only one lipstick from Maybelline and it was perfectly harmless :D I remember reading it though so asked you..

    ReplyDelete
  70. Tell you something ...this typing name/url everytime you post a comment tales half the fun away..i was better as anon...

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh you can type as Anon..but then some other horrid creatures here also type as Anon and I won't know if its them pulling my leg :D

    ReplyDelete
  72. You don't have a google id? If you sign in with that I think it remembers you later...seriously no idea how this thing works but I never type my name so often on other blogs..

    ReplyDelete
  73. Tell me..are you really tech challenged or just playing safe, i have seen you going pretty heavy handed with some favored smileys at someone's (ahem) blog..you know they talk about being paid in one's own coins...

    ReplyDelete
  74. Pooop on Ahemmmm's blog...:D :D :D Oh I would love it someone set up a poop emoticon on my blog tooooo. I think wordpress works better that way than blogger. Have you read through some of the other comments here...people (ahemmms we wont name her) call this a poop corner!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. A Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in a colour of your choice if you tell me how to set up poopy emoticons on my blog :D :D :D

  85. Hey Rads, I love the body shop ones...where did u pick Burt's Bees...is it available in India (esp Bangalore)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Hi Rads,
    I was making some research on your idea,looks like it requires knowledge of html and javascript to tweak your blog to add emoticons so the best thing seems like to either learn some more html and javascripting or to holler help!!!! to your tech savvy friends...

    ReplyDelete
  87. Hii Michelle :) No Burt's Bees in Bangalore that I know of. Begged sister to get it for me from US :D

    Rajeshwari - Awww..tx for searching. Me hope one day the superpowers at Google decide to get generous and just gift some emoticons :D :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  88. Jomol - yup me no like it either..it has a minty tingling feel to it - hate it. Avon is okaayyy..not woww..but not bad either..it was on discount at Rs. 99 :D
