All I knew of Vaseline in lip care was their petroleum jelly until I saw this pretty pinkish red tube on their counter. I always trusted Vaseline; I was new to lip glosses so I picked it up. Believe me now I have so many lippies but the first ever was lip gloss only. Guess we have few who always got their hand first on glosses and then go for lippies ;)

My Take on Vaseline Lip Care Rosy Glow Strawberry Frost:
Packaging: It comes in a plastic transparent tube, with a transparent screw cap with a slanted tip as usual. The strawberry frost is the only variety available in this one. Also you can’t find that name anywhere on the tube but only on the outer cover. Totally beats me.
Colour: It is a beautiful strawberry red but more pinker. It has golden shimmer in it. Seriously why golden shimmers? The tint is really good but very subtle. I won’t advice using this without at least a swipe of your lippy.
Texture: The texture is extremely glossy but it is the first ever lip gloss which didn’t feel sticky to me. So Yay! But the gloss always gets separated from the color so it has to be shaken before use.. feels like tonic doesn’t it?
Staying Power: The lip gloss disappears immediately as you eat something so but if not it stays for 5 hours if you are not talkative. I used it to travel to Bangalore one and it stayed for 6 hours. And the moisturisation stayed for 8 hours that is if you are not using your mouth in any way. It was a night journey so otherwise it only stays for 4 hours maximum.
Fragrance: This is the good part. Strawberries all the way. Yummy!
On My lips:
I have worn this without anything. See it barely gives tint. My bottom lip colour is better. God I got pigmented so badly guys on my top lip which is increasing day by day even if I moisturise them and scrub regularly. Any suggestions?
Why I like this Lip Balm?:
- Excellent pinky red colour
- Non sticky to me at least
- Easy on pocket
- Non pigmented lips (Like mine a year back.. crying) will love this
- Smell is so yummy
- Easily available
- Good moisturisation if your mouth is not busy (wink)
Why I don’t like this Lip Balm?:
- Pigmentation is not so good
- Highlights pigmented lips see how mine look here.. Crying again
- The name is not given on the tube so a bit confusing
- Disappears as you eat something
- Only one shade is available so why have the pain to give it so many names?
MABH Rating: 3.5/5
Do I Recommend?:
Ya may be for starters in lip department who are looking for slight tints to check with their colours. It can be worn on top of a lip stick. No sticky lip gloss lovers and not for talkative ladies. Sorry girls I love you but Vaseline doesn’t seem to (wink)!
Would I Repurchase?:
I don’t know. This is going to take time for me to finish. I am more a matte lip lover! See how much is left still?
