Review: Catrice Pure Shine Color Lip Balm in "(060) Go Flamingo Go!"

Hey there beauties,


Hope you all are doing great and enjoying the foggy winter days. Today I have another lip crayon review to share with you. It's Catrice Pure Shine Color Lip Balm in shade "(060) Go Flamingo Go". So without further talking let's just get to the review and see what I have to say about this lip balm crayon.

The texture and feel of this pure shine color lip balm is exactly like a lip balm. Its finish is kind of glossy but it doesn't feel sticky or tacky. It is not very pigmented and provides sheer to medium coverage. It hydrates and moisturizes the lips really well and leaves the lips feeling soft and supple even after the color fades away. I can say this is the most moisturizing lip crayon I have ever used till now.

This particular shade "Go Flamingo Go!" seems like a bright orange shade from the packaging. But surprisingly inside the tube it is a very wearable orange-peachy kind of shade. On my lips, it appears as a subtle peachy pink shade and leaves a slightly darker coral stain after few hours. The shade is perfect for spring or summers but I love using it in winters too. Staying power of this balm is not very remarkable as a lip crayon but still decent enough for a lip balm. It fades evenly but the actual color stays on my lips for about 2-3 hours at max and after that it leaves the orangish-coral kind of stain on my lip which lasts an extra hour. The best part is even after the color fades away, my lips stay hydrated and moisturized all day long.

Overall, this works great as a lip balm with a sheer hint of color. It provides long lasting hydration to lips and leaves a nice stain on lips after the actual color fades off. Although am not a fan of glossy products But I still like using it everyday. However, if you are looking for a long lasting full coverage lip crayon then this one is not for you. Thanks to this pure shine color lip balm, I no more have to worry about chapped/dry lips in winters.

The Goods:
  • Works great as a lip balm with a hint of color
  • Provides long lasting hydration
  • Great for dried/chapped lips
  • Leaves a beautiful coral stain
  • Doesn't feel tacky
 The Bads:
  • A bit expensive for a lip balm
  • Average staying power
  • Not very pigmented


Price & Availability: Available at all Catrice counters Nationwide. I purchased mine from Scentsations Safa Gold Mall (Islamabad) for PKR 970/- only. Few Shades are also available online at Beauty arena.



My Rating: 4/5... as a lip balm !!!

    1. Thanks Alice... Yeah I wish they had better staying power.. But considering a balm the staying power isn't bad so you should give these a try.

  8. Can't believe that Catrice is so expensive in other countries :O
    In Germany we pay about half the price :/
    But though, that would not justify that lame pigmentation

    Have a nice day :)

  22. not worth the price...i was disappointed as well.

  23. The price is too much. Although the product looks good as a lip balm but then again we have so many cheaper options for lip balms right.

  25. This looks super-moisturizing! Would have been a winner if pigmentation was slightly better. Still its a nice, sheer color :D
