Origins Drink Up Hydrating Berry Splash Lip Balm + Estee Lauder Companies' Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

This week I'm collaborating with Estee Lauder Companies' BCA Campaign! You can read more about it HERE. So what product has me swinging from the chandeliers? Origins Limited Edition Drink Up Hydrating Lip Balm in Berry Splash ($17 USD). This product is off the charts good and FEELS just as good! I truly didn't think any beauty company could accomplish making such a fabulous lip gloss. What am I talking about? I WANT the COLOR of a lipstick! I WANT the FEEL of a non-sticky lip gloss! Sometimes you get a great color lipstick, yet it feels dry to your lips. Sometimes you get a great color lip gloss, yet it's sticky to the lips. Sometimes you get a non-sticky lip gloss, yet the color is weak. HaHaHa Have you been there ladies? Raise your hands! This product exudes superb color, hydration & moisture, and feels OH SO GOOD on the lips! It stays in place! There's no slipping and sliding outside the lip line. It wears like a lipstick and feels like a lip gloss (a fabulous one). The only product I've tried that comes close are Fresh Lip Balms, but even they don't give you THIS kind of color. I have never tried Origins anything! I am impressed and want more. I haven't tried any of the other colors, but I'm hoping the formula is the same. However, I can vouch for this one. Just look below! Don't my lips look HAPPY (color & moisture babyyy)? Have a HAPPY weekend everybody!

In support of The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign, Origins will donate $3.50 from every purchase of this Limited Edition Drink Up™ Hydrating lip balm in Berry Splash to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) throughout the month of October. Learn more about the Estee Lauder Companies BCA Campaign at  www.bcacampaign.com. Join the conversation @BCAcampaign / #BCAstrength I would like to THANK Estee Lauder for this opportunity. You have some awesome products! :)

Kim, I can see your happy face about it, how cute you are! I think I have already heard about this brand you know and, even though, Im not much into lip glosses as they usually are sticky, this one inspires me a lot. The shade is lovely and seems it got a nice scent too!:)

Irene Papadopoulou said...

love the color! so fresh!


Jackie Harrison said...

The shade looks pretty on you I will like to try it out.

Hollands Reverie said...

Looks great- I am not a fan of sticky either and they usually dry my lips out, but this sounds great!


Stanislava E. said...

Yep, I raise my hand! I know what you are talking about and that's why I use only lip balm. But how would I love to have a normal lip gloss, that's not sticky but has a great colour yet. Maybe it's this one!


Emmylou said...

If this is as good as the Fresh lip balms, I'm so all over it! I love the pigmentation on you, Kim:)

Ivana Split said...

what an adorable lipgloss...and it looks great on you. The cause is also admirable....raising awareness about any health risk/disease/ syndrom is always a good thing!

p.s. you look really cute!

Loving the shade! Great review.

That color looks so great on you kim!! I have a hard time finding the perfect lipgloss too that isn't too sticky but is pigmented and lasts long! Such a life time struggle LOL

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I have used some Origins products in the past, but I haven't tried their makeup line. I usually stick to the lotions or bath products BUT since you rated it SUPERSWEET I may have to broaden my horizons and give them a try! :)

Kizzy Von Doll said...

Looks gorgeous doll, love the bottom shade the most, such a gorgeous shade on you :)) Congrats to the winner as well, so awesome. Happy Thursday doll xx

Julie Corbisiero said...

Hey Kim, you look great in the origins and smash box lip sticks! Pink really compliments you too. What a collection you must have of makeup. You lucky girl! Have a great day.

Sara Gerard said...

That lippy is perfect on you! I have never tried anything by origins either, i think you look beautiful!

Corinne said...

I didn't think I would like this when I saw the packaging but it looks lovely on you!

Crazy how hard it is to get a gloss with good coverage that isn't sticky and gets all over your teeth!

Francesca Flaminio said...

OMG how cute!! And you are just gorgeous!! :)


Missy May said...

Such a lovely and pretty shade. Love the light shimmer. :)


Jane @ anothermommablog.blogspot.com said...

I love that shade on you. It looks like a lipstick, can't believe that's a lip balm. I will definitely add that to my list. I like my lip balms to have a little bit of color and aren't too greasy. Thanks for the review!

Joie Fatale said...

Your description of color x moisturizer x non-stickiness is my whole experience!

I can't wait to try this! The color looks fantastic on you Kim! Thank you for holding the contest!!!

Nails My Dreams said...

Coool! Lip glosses are usually sheer. I'll have to try this. It looks good on you Kim.

Cee said...

I am raising my hand - I've totally been there! This gloss sounds like a dream, Kim, and the colour is gorgeous on you.

Mimi said...

I really love that shade of pink...looks nice on you too!

Kim, this is another great shade of pink! Very rich. Funny, but when I read "Berry Splash" I actually could imagine the smell of berries! :) I love the fact it hydrates well. T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Darcy said...

I have only ever tried Origins eye cream.. I really need to start exploring their other products!

Random_Hi_D said...

I totally get what you mean by getting the color but not the texture or vice versa. This product sounds great. And they've got a great cause. How long does the lip gloss stay on lips?


Pilar said...

This is another beautiful shade of pink! You wear pink lip colors well!

Ahleessa C said...

That's such a gorgeous color!


Mica T said...

It sounds awesome Kim! You're so right, most lip glosses don't have the staying power, or are too sticky....it's hard to find a good one.

Good to hear this worked for you! :)

Love the shade of the lip balm. Looks lovely on you.


Julie Ly said...

This shade looks beautiful on you. xx


Lorena said...

CAll me old fashioned Kim but I cannot get a grip on the tube glosses, I cannot apply them properly and feel that too much product comes out… but, now that shade does look great .

Lauren Michelle Major said...

The color is amazing, and in a lip gloss??? I'm in! I totally want to try this one, especially since some of the money goes to a good cause!

Looks gorgeous on!! Definitely need to get myself that's not too dry or messy wet for the lips.


Jo said...

Hello Kim, I'm sold when you said "no slipping and sliding outside the lip line" and "It wears like a lipstick and feels like a lip gloss." I don't ever believe there is such a lip product like that but since you said so and your reviews are always so honest and fun to read, I really would head to the counter and check this product from Origins out. I have a problem with lip anything. They dry my lips out, including lip balms.

Lovely posts of pink in support of BCA! Great collaboration!
