Chocolate Delight: Whipstick Lip Balm

I recently got a request from The Beauty Deputy to review one of the LUSH lip balms called Chocolate Whipstick. If you are a chocolate fan… this product is for you! LUSH has four year-round lip balms: Honey Trap, Lip Service, Whipstick, and None of your Beeswax.

SMELL: I love the smell of this lip balm. It has an orange-chocolate scent that reminds me of chocolate truffles! In fact, the smell makes you hungry for chocolate! It is that strong. Like I mentioned earlier, if you are not a chocolate fan, this LUSH lip balm is not for you.

TEXTURE: Whipstick is a bit more difficult to apply than the other lip balms. You have to dig your finger in the balm to get a substantial amount for application! Once the lip balm is broken in longer, I think the application process will get easier.

MOISTURE: Whipstick is the thickest lip balm from LUSH (hence, the thick texture). It works wonders for lips that are chapped, dry, irritated and cracked! This lip balm is a must for the dry winter months!

COLOR: As you can tell from the picture, this lip product is brown! It is not the usual cream colored balm. The color does not transfer to your lips unless you apply an abundant amount. Normally, your lips stay the same color with a bit of a tan glow.

INGREDIENTS: This product is packed with only natural ingredients. There are no safe synthetics. Some of these ingredients are fair trade shea butter, dark chocolate, almond oil, sweet orange oil, vanilla absolute, and much more! This product is not vegan since it contains beeswax. I also believe LUSH just updated their formula making Whipstick smell stronger.

Have you tried this chocolate lip balm?!

Mohegan Sun LUSH Haul

How many of you bloggers have ever been to the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut?! Well it is a completely different world there. I went with my mom to a Luke Bryan concert there and had a BLAST! I even went shopping at LUSH after the concert… we walked out of the venue at 11:35 right to the LUSH entrance… and it was OPEN! I was baffled! Shopping at LUSH at midnight?! It was a dream come true. I dragged my mom into the store and got these goodies:

  • Chocolate Whipstick lip balm – this stuff is AMAZING. Definitely one of my favorite LUSH products. Review to come very soon!
  • Skin Drink moisturizer – I have been looking for this product forever… they are always sold out in NYC. Excited to try this on my dry face!
  • Perspective lip stick – this is a great color. I have been wearing it daily since I purchased it! This liquid lip stick is a part of the Emotional Brilliance line.
  • Figs and Leaves soap – my goal is to try all of the year round LUSH soaps. I have not yet tried this one yet but it smells great!
  • Dragon’s Egg bath bomb – I have not purchased this bath bomb in a while! Really excited to do a review on this one!
  • Lord of Misrule bath bomb – this is an all time favorite of mine… I got this around Halloween and loved it so much I had to repurchase! Will definitely be doing a review on this before they are sold out! Remember, this bath bomb is only limited edition!
  • SMAPLE – Handy Gurugu hand cream – I am not a big hand cream person so I decided to sample this one before I buy the large pot if I like it!

So this was an awesome way to end an already great concert and day! I love LUSH and anytime I see one I have to go in and meet the sales associates and talk LUSH! Here is the beautiful store in the middle of the bustling casino with my mom in front and the lovely ladies who helped me out (sorry if the pictures are a bit blurry – my camera lens was dirty!):
