Too Cool For School Max in Pocket Lip Balm in Pink Pink is currently my go-to lip balm. Its cute and playful packaging definitely caught my eye the first time I saw this product on Sephora (because who isn’t a sucker for cute or pretty packaging?). It contains shea butter and mango seed butter to repair dry lips and keep them moisturized! This is definitely a must feature for me as my lips get dry easily. However, during colder, drier, and windier winter days in New England I definitely need to keep a chapstick or Vaseline with me at hand; I don’t find this lip balm as sufficiently moisturizing during this weather.
Pink Pink is a beautiful color I especially love using during the winter season when my lips are bit paler than usual. Since it’s a tinted lip balm, one layer leaves a beautiful sheer pink color. It’s also easy to build opacity with additional layers. The color lasts for about 3-4 hours with eating; even afterwards, it fades into a beautiful pink. This picture is unedited and was taken with natural lighting on a cloudy day.
My favorite feature of this pocket lip balm is the little mirror inside. It’s really convenient to have when you want to touch up throughout the day but don’t have a compact mirror or a bathroom near you.
This lip balm also comes with a slim metal ball chain; so you can attach your lip balm to your purse or bag and take it everywhere you go.
Overall, I love this lip balm for it’s beautiful color, easy application, and packaging. I also appreciate that I haven’t had any particular problems with the product melting when I have left it in the car or in my backpack during warmer CA weather. On the days I just want to bring a little more color to my lips, it’s a great product that I always leave in my backpack or pouch so I have it wherever I go.
