Review: Allue Lip Conditioner

Hello, fellow Earthlings! Today I'm gonna be reviewing this lip conditioner I picked up from HBC (see haul post *here*). Don't get me wrong, I'm not dissatisfied with my Lip Ice Color Changeable Lip Conditioner. It's just that sometimes I want something that's not tinted. I wanted to get the Lip Ice ones but Watsons is 10 minutes away from my place while HBC is just 2 minutes away. Talk about the attack of the lazy :P


Allue products are directed towards "young" customers, say preteens to teens starting out with makeup. That's why almost, if not all, their products have the (sorta) tag line, "My first..." Allue has products like lip glosses and lip palettes, pressed powders, blushes, bronzers, tints, mascaras (and even hair color mascaras),  eyeshadow palettes, nail polishes, etc. - not the heavy-makeup kind, of course. Well, this is definitely not my first lip conditioner. I just couldn't resist the cute packaging of this one. How shallow of me, right? But you already know that! LOL :D

I got mine in the flavor Orange Fizz. They have three variants of this one - orange, vanilla and berry (I think).

Ingredients list. Click to enlarge.
The packaging is cute and girly and would definitely catch the attention of young girls out there.


One thing about the packaging is that it's made of cardboard (except for the lipstick shell) so I have to be careful not to get it wet. As for the product itself, this is what it looks like...


L-R: With flash, without flash
It looks coral in the tube but it actually goes on clear.

Applied on the back of my hand 
T-B: Bare lips, lips with Allue lip conditioner
It has a tiny hint of gloss to it. The smell is nowhere near orange (for me, at least). Oh wait, scratch that. Now that I'm sticking it up in my nose, I can smell a teeny tiny bit of orange there. Teeny tiny. The taste of it kinda bothers me. It tastes (ugggh) artificial. I know I'm not supposed to lick this off but I can't help but do so from time to time, especially when I'm drinking or eating. It doesn't feel waxy on my lips. It has a texture like that of a gloss with definitely less stickiness, if that even makes sense.

As for its conditioning ability, it does keep my lips moisturized. I sometimes apply this before I go to bed and I wake up with soft and smooth lips. It stays for quite a long time on my lips when my lips aren't very "active." I can still taste it after about 5 hours or so, even with lipstick on top of it. It dries easily when I'm talking too much, though.

So to summarize, here are the things that...

I like about this product:
  • Packaging is cute and girly but I have to be careful not to get it wet
  • Does a decent job in keeping my lips moisturized
  • Affordable at only 49.75 Php for 3.5 g of product

I don't like about this product:
  • The taste is so... artificial (for the lack of a better term)
  • Dries after 1-2 hours with constant talking

All in all, I can live without this product. I'm sure there are better products out there but for the price, I think it's a decent lip conditioner. If you're interested with this or any other Allue product (like for your pre/teen daughter), you can get it from HBC. :)

Just a quick review for you all. I have to go now and finish my organic chemistry problem set and many more. Babush! :)

  9. When you mentioned you were sticking it up your nose, I had a mental image of you literally sticking it up your nose. LOL sorryy XD

    It's nice that HBC makes these decent quality products for our tween/teen little sisters in makeup. The packaging reminds me of clouds! ♥

    And good luck with that probset! Fight!

  10. The packaging is so cute. And the color on the tube looks really nice. If it does the job if keeping your lips moisturized and it's less than 50 bucks, it's a great find then. :)
