I semi-recently did an international swap, which was tons of fun. I got a lot of MUA products to try, and a few sleek items. I wanted to show you ladies the Pout Polish first. I was super excited about this because a tinted lip balm with SPF is always nice.
The container itself isn’t my first choice for how to package any lip product. It’s in a plastic tin like container with a screw on top. I’m never a fan of any lip product you have to apply using your finger (you could use a brush, but that’s quite inconvenient). The packaging is super sturdy, I’ve dropped it a few times already. It fits nicely in small purses as well.
- It gives the lips a nice light peach tint
- glides on super easy
- Super smooth on the lips
- Super sheer color given. Mostly shine.
- It has a super strong fake vanilla scent. Which fades once applied
- It taste horrible.
- Wear time maybe an hour even without eating or drinking.
When I say it taste horrible, I really mean it. It has a fake manufactured taste to it. No I am not licking it, but whenever you use lip products it’s hard to not get a little in your mouth. Whether it’s from talking or drinking, it happens. Since it does taste so bad, I didn’t use this for long. I tried to get past the taste but I couldn’t. It does feel moisturizing on my lips but I can’t say if it made a difference in my lip health or not.
VERDICT: It’s a great idea, but the follow through wasn’t that great. The taste is horrible. If I had to buy this myself, I wouldn’t do it again. It sells to america for about $6, I’m not sure for the UK the price isn’t listed for the UK online for me. Pass.
