My Opinion: - My lips are mostly dry, especially in the winters. I need a good moisturizing lip balm even in the summers. This time I laid my hands on the Fabindia Fruity Vanilla Lip Butter. The packaging is a put off for me as it comes in a small jar/tub and I find it unhygienic to dig into it every time. Ok now this jar/tub is very cute and the packaging is very basic. A transparent plastic jar with white plastic screw-on lid. It’s tiny enough to fit in most purses and in pockets too. Coming to the fragrance it smells yummy and irresistible. I keep applying it just because of the scent.
The texture is waxy but soft and smooth. It’s a bit on the heavier side and basically sits on my lips, only a little gets absorbed. It’s very moisturizing and keeps my lips soft and well hydrated. It stays in place and does not spread or bleed. One big problem is that lipstick/gloss slides off if used over this lip butter. I have to apply a thick layer on my lips as using just a tiny bit does nothing for my lips.
The staying power of this lip butter is amazing, stay on 4-5 hours and keeps lips hydrated long after its gone. The taste of this lip butter is yuck… very much like you are swallowing vanilla flavored wax/candle bits. It’s a must have for lip balm lovers/collectors. A great product for my dry kind of lips in any weather. But I don’t use this lip butter during the day if I have to go out because it lacks sun protection.
* Yummy scent, the word vanilla sound magical to me
* Cheap at Rs 75 for 10 gms
* Very moisturizing, keeps my lips hydrated
* Lasting power is good at 4-5 hours
* This tiny cute jar fits in my pocket/purse easily
* Packaging is unhygienic but attractive
* Does not contain Sun Protection
* Taste is horrible during the first few uses but later on I got the hang of it
* Available only Fabindia stores or in estores
I rate this Fabindia Fruity Vanilla Lip Butter 4 out of 5. I deduct a point because of the cons first two cons being major and I can’t overlook them. Apart from the cons, it’s a must have for people who love lip balms/butters. I would prefer buying the other varieties from Fabindia because this tub will last me long. Fabindia please think about tube packaging if possible.
