Beauty Review: The Body Shop Born Lippy Lip Balm

The Body Shop’s Born Lippy Lip Balm is a cult hit for the store with fans flocking to get this stick to soothe their lips. We picked up one of the plum flavoured lip balms to see what all of the fuss is about.

THE HYPE: The Born Lippy balms are a store hit promising soft, moisturized lips with a hint of colour and flavor.

THE TEST: See if Born Lippy is better than our other lip balms

THE VERDICT: While we like The Body Shop’s Born Lippy balm, we aren’t going crazy about it any time soon. The smell of this purple plum stick is great. It’s got a rich plum scent that is full and makes you want to apply it over and over. It’s the outcome that is underwhelming. While this is a good lip balm, it isn’t great. Sure, it softened our lips for a while, but it did just as well as other drugstore lip balms. It offers a hint of tint on our pout, but it’s not enough of a difference to make us say wow. While we like Born Lippy, the hype is a bit overrated.
