I placed an order, waited about a week (damn you, COVID shipping delays), and realized that the tattoo stamp was, in a word, garbage. What was supposed to be a cute little Virgo symbol bled into the surrounding skin, obscuring its intended form. By the way, if you know anything about Virgos, you know that we do not take well to such imperfection.
So while the tattoo stamp was a bust, it did introduce me to my new favorite lip product, which I ordered in the hopes of hitting that $50 minimum: Milk Makeup’s Melatonin Overnight Lip Mask. According to Milk’s website, it’s “An overnight lip mask that replenishes, hydrates, and calms, so you wake up to softer, smoother, plumper-looking lips.”
Like Shakira’s hips, that production description doesn’t lie.
Its texture looks and feels like every lip balm I’ve ever used, but its averageness stops there. First, let’s talk about smell. It’s made with lavender oil and chamomile extract, so it smells like a soothing, calming glass of sleepy-time tea. It’s not overpowering, but every now and then you’ll catch a whiff and be compelled to say, ahhhhh. Now, how well it works. As I mentioned, it feels like a normal lip balm when you apply it, but let me tell you about how your lips look and feel when you wake up in the morning: Incredible.
