Philosophy’s Candy Hearts Duo ($20.00) consists of Pink Bubbly and Angel Food Cake Flavored Lip Shines. Flavored Lip Shines usually go for $12 a pop, but these two aren’t available for individual purchase, though buying together does save you $4. There’s something about Philosophy’s keen ability to flavor/scent their products just as they’re described that makes me want to collect ‘em all. I collect (but I still use ‘em!) their shower gels and these lip shines.

Pink Bubbly is a sheer, glossy silvery pink color. The glitter is mostly silver in it, while the bsae is an extremely sheer pink. It really doesn’t transfer into a lot of color onto the lips by any means. Angel Food Cake is arguably just as sheer, but it has more pop in its shimmer/glitter. The glitter is a bright pop of pale yellow gold and more orange-y gold. The base is a very sheer pale yellowish shade (basically, clear with a tint of yellow). They both smell delicious, which is really my big reason for always having these on hand. (These aren’t designed to be ultra pigmented–so they’re not masquerading as color rich glosses!)

Flavored Lip Shines are undoubtedly high in glossiness and low in stickiness. They’re one of my favorite ways to keep my lips moisturized throughout the day. The low color lets me wear these anywhere, any time.

See swatches!

    Are they meant to be glossy balms? I could use the shine of a lipgloss but I definitely need major moisture for my lips..
