TRÈSTIQUE Mini Plumping Lip Balm Review

It’s officially time to update your wardrobe for the cooler weather. But while you might be ready to dress for the new season, have you given any thought to your beauty routine for autumn 2018? It’s time to add jars of body butter, hand creams, and lip balms in your vanity.


My lips have already started to become flaky and chapped and Trestique Plumping Lip Balm is now part of my daily lip care routine. Since berry shades look great in winters, the best thing about this lip balm is that it gives a touch of berry tint to my lips so I can skip my lipstick. I can’t say that it plumps my lips instantly, however, the lips appear fuller.

TRÈSTIQUE Mini Plumping Lip Balm Barbados Berry is a cute, pocket-size plumping balm which is both collectible and crave-able. There are 2 more favors in trestique lip balm, Barbados Berry being the darkest.


Packaging– This is my first purchase from this brand. The packaging of this plumping balm is to die for. Who wouldn’t love this cute chubby pencil that opens up to a colored sphere?  It has a colored coded bottom. I love that it is small and I can literally keep it in my jacket pocket or in my clutch.


Texture– Sure, this product has adorable packaging, but there’s more to it than that. Regarding the price, $12 might be a bit steep for a lip product, but if you’re like me and have struggled with biting your lips, or just generally have dry, chapped lips that are making you miserable, it’s a small price to pay. So with TRÈSTIQUE Mini Plumping Lip Balm, you’ll get all the moisture you need without stickiness.


Pigmentation– Maybe you’re suffering from dry lips but you don’t want to sacrifice the lipsticks you normally wear. This lip balm is amazingly pigmented, one swipe gives a nice tint of pinkish-red shade, although the shade fades away in no time. The lips appear fuller
