So my first transcontinental lip balm swap with Labello Collector Janina Hidler worked wonderfully. She was sweet enough to let me have a now discountinued LE Labello Lip Balm in Passion Fruit and two of the newer Dragonfruit which I pray they never discountinue because true to form for me, I LOVE IT.
Why this isn't available in Asia (except in India, as far as I can tell) I'll never know. It's a cool pink with minute particles of shimmer (you can't see it on the lips). Like Pomegranate it appears really pigmented on me - one stroke gives me a tint, two strokes a vibrant wash of colour.
Why these balms show up so well on my lips is actually a bit of a mystery. They really aren't as vibrant on Syen for example. Then again I don't have pigmented lips which is why I'm tinted balm and lipstain obsessed!
Two strokes of balm with nothing else here, in natural sunlight.
I am so stockpiling this whenever and wherever I can. I have a spare tube, which makes me happy. I have no idea how much these cost as I got them via a swap from Germany. Thanks Janina!
