The new Chapstick Mixstix are dual ended lip balms that come in two variations: Chapstick Mixstix in Strawberry Banana Smoothie - one of the balm is Strawberry scented the other is Banana; Chapstick Mixstix in Lemon Berry Sorbet - one part Raspberry and the other Lemon. The idea is that you can slick on each scent individually or of course mix, match and layer to create your own fragrance fusion. It is every part as enjoyable as you would imagine. My personal favourite is Chapstick Mixstix in Strawberry Smoothie - the banana option is delicious and who doesn't recall owning at least one Strawberry scented at some point? The Lemon section of the Chapstick Mixstix in Lemon Berry Sorbet also takes me a trip down memory lane much like I mentioned above. All four scents are equally delicious and not detectable once on the lips and will appeal to all ages.
For those of you who have never tried a Chapstick - the balm itself is quite firm but quickly melts once it comes into contact with the natural warmth of the lips. The Chapstick Mixstix Lip Balms much like any other lip balm glide onto the lips offering a quick dose of moisture when needed. Due to the slightly thicker and somewhat matte texture of the Chapstick Balm they are ideal for using before a lip liner. The added moisture will prevent the lips from drying out yet won't alter the finish of the liner. They are comfortable to wear, pleasant in terms of fragrance but will not repair the lips in the same vain a medicated balm would. At £2.99 each you can't really expect the world but if a little lip alchemy and fun is what you are after look no further.
The Chapstick Mixstix Lip Balms are avaliable from Tesco, Superdrug and Boots for £2.99.
