Lanolips Lip Water

You know when you love a brand so much that you'll buy their new products even when you think they're going to be crap? That was me with the new Lanolips Lip Water. I was expecting it to be a watery, shimmery mess and yet I still purchased it. Silly. 

Happily it turned out not to be a watery, shimmery mess. 
I thought water referred to the texture, however after using it and reading what Lanolips have to say about it I realised that water refers to hydration.

Lanolips Lip Water is a light, hydrating, glossy lip balm/gloss? I really can't decide if it's a lip gloss or a lip balm. It feels balmy and hydrating but with the slip of a light lip gloss. 

Lanolips call it a lip hydration fluid. The texture is like a liquid lip balm with a holographic shimmer. I was concerned that the shimmer would be over the top but it's very subtle and makes my lips look glossy with no noticeable glitter. As Lip Water contains peppermint it has a lovely fragrance and minty tingle.

Lanolips describe Lip Water as a brand new kind of lip hydration fluid. Weightless, refreshing and glowy. 
With liquid lanolin, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and peppermint, Lip Water is non-sticky with an underwater-holographic glow. A bit like a serum. But more like a drink of water for your lips. Lip Water will dive down and hydrate your deeper layers, leaving your lips glistening and soft.

The shimmer is very difficult to capture. These photos were the best I could manage.

Overall I'm really happy with Lip Water and will purchase it again. The only thing I don't like is the brush, it's quite hard and has already splayed after only a few weeks useage. A sponge applicator or squeeze tube would have been a lot better. 

I purchased my Lanolips Lip Water for $ 23 (AUD) from Sephora. You can also purchase it fron the Lanolips website.

Ingredients: lanolin oil, lanolin, calcium aluminium borosilicate, aroma, Vit E, sunflower seed oil, sodium hyaluronate, glycerin, silica, tin oxide, limonene, CI 77891.
