Half and Half: Beauty Edition – featuring EOS Lip Balms | Product Review

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.”

Half and Half is such an interesting concept because it transcends different fields and industry. In this post, I am going to take Half and Half into the world of beauty and makeup.

The beauty industry is not new to the concept of dividing something into two, as it deals with painting characters for prints, and the big screen. Two such characters are Cruella de Vil, the antagonist from the 1956 novel, The Hundred and One Dalmation (one of my all-time favourite stories), and Two-Face, an insane crime boss who was once an ally of Batman.

Division in half is now common in the construct of makeup products, such as pan powders, and brushes. In recent years, the concept made its way over to lip balms, namely, the Evolution of Smooth (EOS) Lip Balms.

An EOS Lip Balm comes in an egg-like container that is about two-thirds the size of a chicken egg. The container is cut in half, and the top half could be turned open to reveal the lip balm. The turning mechanism is good and clicks tight so the balm will not dirty your bag. The lip balm looks like a delicious half sphere of ice-cream sitting on top of the bottom half of the container, as shown in the collage photo below.

EOS Lip Balms come in a variety of flavours and corresponding colours such as Tangerine (orange), Honeysuckle Honeydew (green), and Lemon (yellow), as featured above. The flavours are strong in both fragrance and taste, which I enjoy. The flavour selection is also very wide, and often ranging into limited edition ones. All of which can be found on their website.

The lip balm itself fits nicely onto closed lips, in a manner where the user is kissing the balm as the balm is smooth left and right along the lips.

Some of the specifications are, 100% natural, 95% organic, certified by USDA. Gluten-free. Counts olive fruit oil, beeswax, coconut oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, sunflower seed oil, and vitamin E amongst its ingredients.

The EOS Lip Balms are imported by Smoochiezz,in Singapore, and costs a hefty $15.90.

The EOS Lip Balms are truly quite a novelty that uses the concept of Half and Half to make the balm more ergonomic, such that it fits the lips a lot better than standard stick balms. The usage of Half and Half also completely eliminates the need to twist up, removing the inconveniences of stuck balms in the tubes.

EOS Lip Balms are well-worth the price if one is going for more value than just a product to smooth the lips.

What do you think of a lip balm in this shape?

Enjoy.
