Lipbalm Love: EOS Lip Balm Smooth Sphere

I've been reading a lot about EOS lipbalms since Ed Westwick was seen using one. Hahaha. Although I couldn't understand how buying one would take a girl closer to her dream of becoming Mrs. Bass, I found them awfully cute. They looked like easter eggs!

They weren't available locally though and most online stores sold them for 250php (or sometimes as high as 300php) which with shipping would come to 320-400 bucks for lipbalm. :\ That's two venti green tea lattes! With soy milk! So, nothankyou, I have my priorities. Heh.

But while window shopping online for possible gifts I came across this online seller selling them for only 220php each, and then found out Multiply was offering shipping through Xend for FREE! I bought two. One for myself and another also for myself as an emergency gift. :D

Sweet Mint and Strawberry Sorbet
Guess which one is mine. :P

My package arrived today, one day earlier than expected! Yay. :) I already opened the Sweet Mint flavored one, it smells like mint gum and tingles a bit on my lips. The strawberry one? I don't feel like giving it away anymore hahaha but I've kept my impulses at bay and haven't torn the plastic packaging yet. So far, my thoughts are:

The good:
It's cute
It's easy to find in my really messy bag.
I love the tingly feeling on my lips!
Feels light, not oily or sticky
It's cute
Easy to put on, even though holding it was awkward at first
It can stand on my dresser
It's paraben-free, phthalate-free and petrolatum-free
It's really cute

The bad:
It's big. Haha. No chances of slipping it into your jeans pocket or into a skinny clutch. But my bags are huge anyway so that's fine.
Still expensive compared to Chapstick and Nivea lipbalms.

The ugly: NONE. Only cuteness. 

The EOS lip balm tagline is: "The lipbalm that makes you smile." And it does! It even makes my 21- year old brother smile he keeps pretending to throw it while shouting "Pikachu, I choose you!" Hahaha. 

I was surprised at how easy shopping at Multiply was! There are so many things I want to buy ehem, makeup, because I cannot resist all things pretty. But I just got these two amazing sets from Sephora and BareMinerals for my birthday, and I really have no excuse to buy any more makeup. For the meantime. Hehehe.

That's 96 shades of eyeshadow and 84 shades of gloss.

I love everything about this set. Everything.

PS: Another thing I liked about it? It came wrapped in two layers of bubble wrap. Bubble wrap = free happiness. :)


  1. I bought the EOS balms when I was still in NY and I actually didn't like it. But I think it's because I don't like slippery balms, I love the stick balms and my fav is Burt's Bees. I'm having people ship me a million sticks hahah. I do, however, love EOS shaving cream!

    And I have to agree about the packaging, it is beyond adorable and I'm so glad that it works for you! Next time I'm in the states I'll pick some up for you if you'd like! :)

  2. It's really really hot in the Philippines so Burt's Bees feels too greasy on my lips. :( Before I bought EOS I used Chapstick or Nivea Essential lipbalm. Wow thank you, I'd love that! I hope those Burt's Bees lipbalms and your Clairsonic refills get to you soon! :)

  3. Mind sharing the site? :D

  4. Hi Hanna, I got it from stuffinstyle.multiply.com :) Free shipping for purchases more than 400!
