One of my "rewards" for paring down my Bath and Body Works stash is going to be an order from the Morbid the Merrier. So far I own three lip balms and two solid perfumes from this lovely brand, and I can't wait to buy more. To be a one-woman company, the presentation and quality of the products from the Morbid the Merrier is phenomenal. I love that my package held such sweetly wrapped little parcels. It adds such a nice extra touch; one that says "Thank you" as clearly as the included thank-you note. Make sure to visit at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/themorbidthemerrier
They were too cute to tear into without snapping a picture!
Harlot Lip Balm
Pros: This is the first balm I've owned that comes in an oval tube, and I like it! Because the tube isn't as fat as regualr ones, they are easier to slide into a purse or pants pocket. These are super- moisturizing; they feel very soft and supple on my lips and not waxy or greasy. The scents/ flavors are so nice! I have Sweet Cream and Honey, Honeysuckle Nectarine, and Natali (it is a perfect orange-chocolate!) Natali was an extra goody that came with my package, and possibly my fovorite balm because I can get matchy- matchy with my Natali solid perfume!
Cons: Even though the name is edgy and attention- grabbing, I do feel a little self- conscious while flashing it around in certain crowds.
Would I buy again?: Yes! I love these little jewels!
On the top are the lip balms and the solid perfumes are on the bottom.
Pros: These come in the same oval tubes as the lip balms, so these are also super portable; however, if you are more of a tin type of person, those are available, too. The scent is quite noticable and last a fair amount of time. The texture is similar to the lip balms', which means that they aren't waxy or runny. Natali (smells like a chocolate orange, but not in an overly sugary sort of way- there is a sultry, mysterious side to it, too!) and Dessert Absinthe (you'll have to read to shop's desciption, but it is the embodiment of the phrase "sugar and spice and everything nice"; girly, but with attitude!)
Cons: These are not for use on lips :( You might get a few strange looks while putting these on, too- my younger sister asked me why I was putting chapstick on my pulse points, haha!
Would I buy again?: Yes- they are perfect for touching up fragrance in the middle of a long day :)
Hope you enjoyed the review!
