[unpaid/sample/ad] One thing is for sure, you’ve got to like a sparkle lip if you fancy one of these Diamond balms. Although they’re not for me, I can see the appeal of adding a riot of twinkles to an otherwise utilitarian product – gilding the lily? Definitely, but none the worse for it and the consumer category its destined for will love it.
There are six shades in total but in swatching (as you’ll see), there isn’t a big difference in colour once they’re on the skin. Bear in mind that you get the deeper tones of the lips behind them once they’re on the shades might be a little more lively.
The sparkles are over-sprayed – they don’t run through the entire bullet (I carved one in two to be sure and also notice that they’re quite short bullets) but you will still get a frosting effect each time you use as the spray is dense.

It’s quite hard to catch the sparkle colour nuances on camera, but there is a small distinction between each one. The balm itself seems smoothing and a decent barrier and there’s no discernible scent (I would have sworn they’d be a vanilla blast). These aren’t my favourite Huda products (there’s a new launch coming very soon that sounds amazing) but they’re not particularly made to appeal to my category. There’s a place in the world for sparkling balms I’m sure of it. They’re £22 each HERE, non affiliate HERE.
