Whether it is summer or winter season, we all need to take care of our lips. A good lip balm can do it for you and like any other girl, or most of them, I also love to try new lip balms every now and then. This time I got Faces Canada Epic Lip balm which comes in delicious fruit flavors. I got 3 of these and today I will be reviewing them over here. Faces Canada is a big name in cosmetics, so I have high hopes for these!

Flavors I got
The brand has about 6 flavors in these color-changing lip balms having Chocolate, Vanilla, Wildberry, Watermelon, Strawberry, and Orange. Out of which I got 3.
Watermelon: Coat your lips with our watermelon scented lip balm, for outstanding hydration and nourishment. The soft red tint will give lips a pretty pop of color while keeping them beautifully soft.
Strawberry: Nothing like the smell of fresh juicy strawberries on a hot summer day. The sweet smell of strawberries is a known mood enhancer. This sweet berry-flavored lip balm gives a lush pink tint on the lips.
Orange: Refresh and uplift your senses with this zingy orange-flavored lip balm. Gives a soft orangish-pink hue to lips.
Time for some truth!
I got the strawberry one first, used it, and loved the pink hue. I thought since light pink colored strawberry balm gives a light pink hue to lips, dark pink colored watermelon, and orange one will give their respective shades and I was super excited for them. But the moment I opened the second one, it also had a pink tint, even the orange one. This was disappointing for me!
If you are also buying them just by seeing the image online on the online store, avoid it. I did that mistake!
Apart from this, I really loved these balms. These are quite similar to the ones by Maybelline called bloom or blossom, I can’t remember. They had same packaging but had limited flavors.
However, these are a step ahead. They do make your lips very soft and gives a nice hue to them. The packaging is cute with different colors and prints, but the bullet of the balm is too soft. You should avoid keeping it in purse if stepping out on a hot day. It will melt and break when you try to apply it. I try to twist just a little for an application so that it doesn’t break!
- Very moisturizing
- Nice fruity scent
- Makes lips soft for hours
- Gives a cute pink tint
- Packaging is cute
- Contains sweet almond oil and Vitamin E
- They all give the same pink hue to the lips
- It melts really quickly in your bag
- The lip balm bullet is too thin and soft, breaks off sometimes while applying.
All of them look the same on the lips after application. There is no pinkish or orangish hue, only pinkish hue. All the 90s kids can think of it as that transparent color-changing lip balms with little flowers inside them that we used to wear to schools. The pink tint is very subtle, but you can make it intense by applying several layers of this balm.
