Well here’s a post i never ever imagined writing, hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post! Yes you read the title right, today we are going to be talking about the new collection from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts they have released a different product range from their mouth watering treats…cosmetics!! When I first heard the news I was literally shook, I googled it as I thought *what this cannot be right?* but to my surprise this was true, I saw online that there was products ranging from lip balms to nail varnish sets and instantly I knew I needed to get my hands on at least 1 product from this range. I was able to get the Lip Balm Trio Set which retails for £7 here in the UK which for 3 products is quite a good deal. So this is what the packaging looks like
It literally looks like your packaging what you get your doughnut in, I think the tins are a little bit plain but I can’t see what else they could’ve done without the classic images of the doughnuts, Each tin has 10g of product so it’s going to last a while.
So the flavours of these are strawberry glaze, original glaze and chocolate sprinkles. To me the strawberry and chocolate smell very similar if not the same and the original does have a slight different scent to it, they all have a shimmer look in the tin but when applied to the lips this does not show up it doesn’t look like you have anything on and to me personally I can’t see any colour pigment coming from them.
On Boots UK website the description says “Give your lips a treat with this yummy Krispy Kreme Lip Balm Trio! This Christmas gift includes 3 x delicious smelling lip balms in 3 delicious tins! Including Strawberry Gloss, Original Glazed and Chocolate Sprinkles. They are perfectly sized to fit in your handbag or on your dressing table.
These lustrous Strawberry, Chocolate & Vanilla lip balms will make your lips shine. Apply a small amount to lips to get a sweet smile.

So this is what the product looks like inside of the tin, as you can see there is a slight shimmer but nothing too dramatic. also please excuse the dent in the far left one the lid was a bitch to get off and I caught my nail in it *sighs* I feel you need to have a few swipes of this to pick up a reasonable amount of product as well.
my favourite one out of the trio is definitely the Strawberry Glaze just because of the colour mainly, I wouldn’t buy these products as an everyday lip balm but if you’re like me and enjoy quirky things like this then I definitely recommend, and especially for £7 you can’t grumble really. If you want to check these out click here http://www.boots.com/krispy-kreme-lip-balm-10232501 unfortunately I haven’t saw these stocked in other stores in the UK but if you have seen them anywhere else definitely let me know! and also make sure you check out the other products from the new range.
