These are identical to eos lip balms but more accessible.

Looks exactly like eos lip balms which has been around for a few years now. Do you have that brand in the Britain? It's pretty common in Canada/US.

You can indeed get EOS in the UK... I bought one here http://www.cutecosmetics.co.uk/eos-lemon-drop-spf-lip-balm-sphere-342-p.asp & it's fabulous (hope you don't mind the link Jane).

I'm amazed at the almost identical design, but the eos ingredients list would be hard to beat.

Reminds me of EOS in contact cases. I love the colours they used. Althought if they used the same rubbery one eos used/nars type ones. it's going to get dirty really quickly in the makeup bag LOL

Beauty Box said...

Wow these look like a direct rip off of EOS lip balms in terms of packaging but EOS relies primarily on olive oil I believe...much like badger lip balms...

I've never heard of EOS or this brand before so I'm excited that there are two new and affordable products for me to try on this one page! They look and sound great!

I can see one diffirence from EOS though - EOS are available only via internet (Amazon, Ebay, official site), but these Balmi cuties - from Boots (http://www.boots.com/en/Balmi-SPF-15-Mint-Lip-Balm-10g_1273961/?cm_mmc=Bazaarvoice_rating_and_reviews-_-Babycentre-_-Lips-_-1273961).

These are almost identical to EOS for sure. One of my favourite lip balm brands.

I wonder how they will compare in performance to EOS. Very similar pricing and colours.

Just me, Leah said...

They look really cute and would make great stocking fillers.

Bare Faced Chic said...

This is a blatant rip off of the EOS balm but given that the second ingredient in the listing on the Boots website is liquid parrafin they are not going to be anywhere near as good.

Also given your recent post on how independent beauty producers are being squeezed out of the market it seems slightly odd that you would promote this which is such a major copy and being sold through one of the big high street names...

Hi Bare Faced Chic.. if I exclude all small brands sold at major stores, then I wouldn't have much of a blog left. Independents are indeed being horribly squeezed but showing something on my blog is not a blatant promotion; it's about bringing news of what is new. You will also notice I haven't said I've tried it and liked it, and also have not listed the major retailer as a stockist. There is a line between showing new beauty products which is what my blog is partially about, and also bringing more insider news that maybe beauty purchasers wouldn't have access to so they can make their own decisions. Anyway, thank you for commenting, always appreciated x
