EOS lip balms are some of my all time favourites but they can be a bit difficult to to track down in the UK and when you do find them they are incredibly overpriced. I always get mine directly from the States, even with shipping costs it still works out much cheaper! I did a whole blog post about how to ship US brands to the UK if you want to know more - link here. As soon as I saw this limited edition set for the holidays, I knew I had to get my hands on it!
EOS Lip balms are my favourite as they are the only ones that I actually like the flavour of and that actually hydrate my lips well. The reason I wanted this collection so much was because of the Vanilla flavour, this is a limited edition sphere which cannot be purchased individually. Each of the lip balms are enriched with natural conditioning oils, moisturising shea butter and antioxidant rich Vitamin E. These lip balms are also gluten, paraben, petrolatum and phthalate free. If you are wanting to purchase these in the UK it will cost you £19.50 at Selfridges which is ridiculous because if you buy it from the States it will cost you $9.99!! I know that I actually got mine even cheaper because I found a discount code. I don't think I could justify spending the UK price tag on these EOS lip balms so I will continue to ship mine over from the US. Even with custom charges and shipping it still works out cheaper this way.
This collection set is limited edition and was released for Christmas so I am not too sure how long it will be available for so if you do want it, I would recommend getting it fairly quick. Inside the box is three of the EOS Lip Sphere Lip Balms and two sheets of decorative stickers. The three flavours are Sweet Mint, Vanilla Bean and Pomegranate Raspberry. I am a long time fan of the Sweet Mint and I have already gone through a fair few of them so I was happy to get another one. These lip balms provide long lasting moisture to the lips and apply smoothly onto the lips leaves a semi matte finish. I love to wear these lip balms alone or under a lipstick which tends to dry my lips out to prevent this.
As this collection has a decorative theme, there is two sheets of stickers to customise your lip balms. I think these are perfect for any tween or early teen but even myself as a 21 year old loved decorating mine. There is so many different stickers included that you can create so many different designs and you can use them on any other lip balms or makeup products you might have. You have add little stars or even letters so everybody knows its your lip balm.
The EOS Limited Edition Decorative Lip Balm Collection retails for £19.50 on the Selfridges website or just $9.99 from the EOS website if you are in the States.
