Beauty Review: Chapstick True Shimmer

Review time!

But first….raise you hand if you have ever owned a Chapstick.

*looks around*

I think just about everyone has owned Chapstick. You too, fellas! It’s just a staple when it comes to lip care. I remember being a little girl and beating the winter weathered chapped lips with a tube of Chapstick…you know, the kind with the blue packaging.

Chapstick has a new lip balm that adds a little more to your lippies: shimmer!

I absolutely adore these babies….which is shocking because I have never been the glittery goddess type but the shimmer in these are very subtle. And of course it has that wonderful long-lasting moisture that we have all grown to love from the Chapstick brand. And is it just me or can I *licks lips* taste a somethin’-somethin’?

Check me out!

Just a very sheer but pretty shimmer. I tried pairing one with a lip liner from Milani Cosmetics (Bonfire) and it worked perfectly!

I am finding that these are perfect for the holidays. If not as stocking stuffers, maybe you can trim your tree with them, eh?

Don’t laugh at me….yall know it’s cute. LOL! Not bad for only $2.79. And of course you can find them at any drug, food or convenience store. Are you a Chapstick fan? What’s your favorite item from them?

    Yay! i’m excited :)

    I was nodding when you asked whoever owned a Chapstick! LOL They’re not down here yet but I’m sure they’ll be coming over and a lot of us are waiting for it!

    Out of all the flavors, I go for the green tube, the mint one :)

    Happy holidays B!

    I’ve owned lots of Chapsticks. It’s a great product. I plan on picking up the Shimmer ASAP.

    I actually bought a product similar to this one made by Burt’s Bees. The color was harsh and heavy so I stopped using it.

    The idea of hooking up the Shimmer Chapstick w/the lip liner was great.

    Great post, Britt! I tried finding you on FB, to no avail! :(

    OMG I was in line at WalMart eyeing that shimmery chapstick yesterday. I didn’t get it because I wasn’t sure about it…but now you’ve made me a believer. :-) Btw I was sent here by PBG.

    I think I currently have three or four of the blue ones. They are a necessity when it comes to keeping my lips smooth. I don’t wear lipstick but I do like the way that True Shimmer looks. Might pick me up one or two…..

  • Grayburn

    Aww it is very cute in the tree!


  • rmcandlelight

    They look really cute. I have to look out for these.

  • Wes

    Lol I’ve seen these in the drugstore- I used to be a big chapstick fan until I discovered Cococare lip balm. I can’t leave the house w/o it.

  • Missy

    OMG!!!! When I saw the commercial for these I was very excited. I thought, everyone is going to be talking about these. Then no one did. I thought…okaaay. I’m so happy you got wind of them.

  • Amina

    i’ll be lost without chapstick
    shoot, i even sleep with one by my pillow just in case i have chapped lips and need to reapply in the middle of the night

  • Fashion’s Darling

    ahh chapstick…loves it. Even those so called “thugs” carry one on my block…the ones with the baggy jeans and swear they’re the most dangerous thing on earth but then pull out a cherry chapstick lol. shimmer I’m not so fond of only because in seventh grade I had a shimmer BonneBell accident and my picture turned out SUPER FROSTED LIPS! gross…I hide that picture.

    so needless to say I’m a little apprehensive lol

  • juvenescent

    AWWW, your hair is so cute! And thanks for the heads up on these lip moisturizers, I break out Chapstick about 500 times a day no joke.

  • donna444444

    It looks great.

  • djh/texas

    i have this in tropical. no color but a little shimmer and yes it is moisturizing and tastes good.
    next time i want to try the berry flavor which is ‘supposed’ to have a hint of color too….

  • Sparkina

    I love, love, love these frosty, fun, glossy, glowy, fragrant, flavorful, FANTASTIC lip enhancers. They moisturize beautifully, smell and taste divine, look gorgeous (I'm all about the sparkle), and are fun to wear. I have the Berry one, want to try all the other flavors/shades, but can't seem to find them
