Balm Chicky Balm Balm review and giveaway

balm-chicky-logoLast week I posted a teaser about Balm Chicky balm balm since they were scheduled to be on Shark Tank on Tuesday 2/3 and I was so excited about watching the TV Show. Here’s a mini recap and my opinion: The two owners came on and gave what I considered a great presentation. Unfortunately the 5 investors didn’t think it was worthy of their money. Mr. (not so) Wonderful was especially cutting and Abby even called him out on it. I was sad that they didn’t present their new packaging since I think that would have gotten them a little more attention. The investors didn’t like the packaging and don’t seem to understand the value of a great lip balm to us. My sister felt the same way and called me when they were done. I can tell though that Liz and Abby are taking it in stride and will continue producing these great balms.

I received 4 of the balms, 2 for me and 2 for one of you. It’s in the “vintage” packaging but they are new and great balms. The new packaging brings them up to date but the product is the same and fun to use.

Balm Chicky balm balm comes in 5 flavors currently. I don’t find the fragrance or taste to be very long lasting yet the balm itself is keeping my lips moisturized for hours. These balms aren’t sticky but they are wonderfully hydrating.  Flavors include Hot Chocolate Love and Juicy Melon —

Look Beautiful with Besame

I just adore the Besame line.  I am totally attracted to anything vintage, and no other line does vintage like this one does.  The packaging is spot on, and the colors and feel are just perfect.  It’s a very romantic line, and the historical details are totally correct.  Founder Gabriela Hernandez created this line in memory of her grandmother.

I love many items from Besame, but today I am going to focus on lips.  They are famous for their terrific matte lipsticks, but did you know they also have truly amazing lip glosses and a new lip set?


The Classic Glaze  is a gorgeous gloss that tastes and smells of delicious vanilla and coconut.  The wand is a doe foot, which I prefer over any other type of wand.  The lip gloss goes on smooth, with nice pigmentation that can be built up for even more color.  Unlike other glosses, this one moisturizes, so even after it wears off my lips are super soft.  My favorite colors are Cotton Candy, which is a gorgeous milky pink with no shimmer, and  Chocolate,  which is a pinky brown with shimmer.


My other love in this line are the Sweetheart Balms ($18.00).  I normally do not like pot glosses.  I find them to be a pain to use, and I am also a little OCD about germs.  However, this gloss is just to die for!  They contain all kinds of things that are good for your lips, like Vitamin C and E, aloe leaf extract, shea butter, jojoba, and rosa canina extract which has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.  Put this balm on and your lips feel drenched in moisture, and the colors are just amazing.  Sweet Pink is a fabulous shimmering light pink, and Cherry is the most gorgeous red I have ever encountered.  I find red very difficult to wear on my thin lips, but this actually looks great on me!  And trust me, if a red looks good on me, it’s going to look fabulous on you.

And my third lip pick from Besame is the awesome Voluptuous Lip Color Set ($35.00).  This is just stunning – amazing packaging, and the colors are fabulous.  My favorite is Champagne, the bottom color, which is a terrific nude color with some shimmer.  The set comes with a super pigmented lipstick in the classic bullet shape, a velvet sleeve for the lipstick, a matching automatic lip liner that is the perfect size for your purse or clutch, and the best lip brush ever – it fits so perfectly in your fingers you have truly precise control with it.  Love it!!!  If you don’t have anything from this line yet, these lip products are a great place to start.  – Lisa
