EDITED May 24 08:
Okay, so I’ve known this for awhile, but kept forgetting to post it. Actually thanks to those who keep viewing this post, cause you reminded me :)
Anyway for those in Canada…HURRAY! You can find them at the cash register of Club Monaco. Club Monaco of all places :P Anyway they have the white tubes, and the light green ones from what I could tell. Normally I only see the white tubes. Can’t remember what they are…But they are there. 7.50 each I believe? So a bit pricer, but they are there for those who are desperately need to get their fix of CO bigelow^^
If you’ve seen them any where else, do let me know~!
I first came across this through a friend.
She always, and I mean ALWAYS had this on her. Actually she had the regular Mentha Lip Shine, but she would frequently get questions on it, and rave about how much she loves this product. Now you might think, why would she get questions on it? Simply answered…
You could only get this, if you hopped the border.
Yes, it was exclusive to the States.
Which was really unfortunate for many. We would always miss out on the Bath and Bodyworks sales 3 for 15 on these (seeing as they only ship within the US). So the only way we were able to get our hands on these, were through ebayers, or getting them on a trip over the border.
Eventually, I just put in an order on Ebay. I found someone who was selling 5 of these for 20 bucks. With shipping, it wasn’t too bad. The hard part was waiting for them to arrive (nearly 3 weeks on their cheapest method).
I was hooked from day one. It packed the glossiness that I loved, into a mega minty taste which I also loved. It is a tad sticky, but I personally found it to be less sticky then my MAC lipglass’ so I had no problem with these.
The Ultimate Mint-Infused Balm.
We super-infused our classic Mentha with more intense flavor and longer lasting breath-freshening to create the ULTIMATE balm. It provides the same glossy high shine with an even greater refreshing, cooling sensation.
I have come to depend on these, espeically when I choose to eat street meat with some onion on it. I love the cooling sensation on my lips, and find that they are also very hydrating for me. I wrote my own review on it on Makeupalley.com, and found that some didn’t find the product to be as moisturizing as they would have liked. But like most products, it is dependent on your skin, as to whether or not it will be completely compatible. So I found those to be very legitamite cons’ to the product. I however did not find that those who conned the mintyness to be quite ridiculous. Did they not read the product discription?
Anyway I haven’t written something…in a day…haha…so I figured I’d write about this, seeing as its my one must have for tackling the cold winds in Toronto.
