Sephora Hot Hues Neon Lip Balm - Hot Pink

I love a good lip product, so when I saw the new Hot Hues Neon Lip Balms from Sephora, I was very intrigued! Here's what Sephora has to say about the new lip balms:

What it is:
A moisturizing lipstick with a sheer, neon tint.

What it does:
This lip treat combines the hydrating benefits of a lip balm with the sheer tint of a lipstick. The pop of neon color will highlight any look and the long-wearing formula means you can keep your pout both moisturized and flashy from day into night.

I like wearing colour on my lips, but I often opt for a plain lip balm because I need the moisturizing benefits. The Hot Hues Neon Lip Balm comes in a cute black lipstick tube, with a neon top. I love the packaging, but I do wish that there was some kind of indication of the shade that you have. There isn't a sticker on the bottom of the tube saying "Hot Pink" or a number or anything. The product itself is really neat, the stick is almost see through, I have nothing like it. I also think that this balm smells a bit like jolly ranchers, or something sweet. However, both my boyfriend and my room-mate thought I was crazy as they couldn't smell anything! So I'm not sure if it's all in my head or not!

"Hot Pink" Shade

Doesn't it look cool!?

On the lips, this is a moisturizing balm with a pop of colour. I wouldn't say that the colour is neon though, at least not on my lips. I tend to like more natural lips, nudes and light pinks make up most of my lipsticks. This just added a hint of pink to my lips, which I was really happy with. This balm is moisturizing, but not as much as a general lip balm. 



This balm isn't glossy, but it isn't matte either. Overall, I am very pleased with this lip balm! 

I tried to swatch this on my arm, but the camera wasn't wanting to pick it up, but here's the picture anyways! 


This is a buildable shade, so you can have it as sheer or as neon as you like. 
The Hot Hues Neon Lip Balms are available in four shades, and you can see them here. They are $10 US and $12 CDN, so they are a very affordable option. Have you tried these lip balms? :)

*UPDATE - This balm is now on sale for only $3CDN! - Link*

Disclosure: This product was sent to me for my honest review.
