Flower Jelly Lip Balms: Worth The Hype?

People the world over lost their collective minds when flower jelly lip balms hit the internet back in June. Chinese cosmetics brand KailiJumei were the first to create the super-cute products - clear, jelly-like lip balms with tiny flowers suspended inside (essentially a beauty blogger's dream). But thankfully for us Brits, a similar invention launched in the UK this month and I'm here to tell you all about it!

Sold exclusively on ASOS, the Winky Lux Flower PH Balm Set features three lipstick-style balms, all packaged in a mini gold makeup case. Each balm has a different coloured flower inside - yellow, pink, and green - but, when applied, are all the same shade... well, in a way. They swipe on clear, but quickly change to a differing pink hue - either super subtle, or slightly brighter - completely dependent on the pH of your skin.

A fluorescein-based dye adjusts the colour within 60 seconds to what is supposedly your most flattering colour. Kind of like a mood ring, but for your lips! Shown on my hand, above, the tone looks quite bright, but on my lips it's a more subtle rosebud pink. Sadly the Winky Lux flower balms are currently sold out at present but, seeing as they've been so popular, I'm sure ASOS will be restocking soon. Fingers crossed...
