Review: Tokidoki Gelato Lip Balm Stain

Hello lovelies<3
Yes, I bring you another Tokidoki product! These are pretty recent, I have only had them for about two weeks. I had been hoping that Tokidoki would come out with lip products, and although I would have preferred lipsticks, I fell in <3 with these~

~Like all other Tokidoki product: packaging FTW. Uber fantastic. Cute to the MAX~
~Very moisturizing
~Great color payoff
~Stains your lips, but when your ready for change, you can easily remove the color from your lips
~smell great
~Each color has different pictures on the packaging (I like that)
~Only $9

~The only thing I can think of is that the packaging might be a little flimsy, and if you drop it hard enough, the cap could break.

$9 at Sephora stores and Sephora.com

I have this in the colors:
~Donutella (Described as a sheer coral strawberry stain by Sephora)
~Skeletrina (Described as a sheer grape stain by Sephora)
[Awesome names, right?]

Initial swatch
Swatch, 30 seconds later

The first picture is the initial swatch, and the picture below is the same swatch but about 30 seconds later. Can you see that the colors are darker and more vibrant? That is because they are stains, so the color intensifies after it has been applied.

Overall Thoughts:

I'm really impressed with these. Why, you might ask? Well, I have extremely dry lips, and these moisturize my lips without skimping out on color payoff. I was expecting these to be drying, since they are lip stains. But, they are a lip stain AND lip balm all in one. Fantastic, nee?


  1. these are sooo pretty! i want to try Donutella. :3

  2. haaa awesome, wish we could easily get this brand here in Au!
