Review: Tokidoki Gelato Lip Balm Stain (in Donutella)

My goodness, today marks the end of my finals!... FINALLY!
I normally don't get dark circles but I found them when I was washing my face earlier ;( I'm really going to catch some sleep tonight, it's been a tough two weeks. And now I am anxiously awaiting grades. I think this week I got about 6 hours since Sunday night and last week I got about 8 from Monday-Friday so you can tell what state I'm in LOL.

I don't have anything to do right now! Such an odd (but pleasant) feeling.

What better time to review my new favorite lip item than now?!

Haha, so I'm going to be reviewing the Tokidoki Gelato Lip Balm Stain in Donutella. It's a part of my giveaway so I'm glad I like it so much!

I know lip sticks are totally essential for some women but I'm really not a lipstick person. I'm not much of lip gloss person either... I just like lip balms and lip tints. This item is exactly a cross between a lip balm and a lip tint. There's enough color without the dryness lip tints can leave and I personally like this color because it's not in-your-face obvious but it still gives a nice light color.

I was a little disappointed with the packaging as you can see here:

It's a little crooked at there was product on the side of the tube (the one in the giveaway is also like this but fear not, they're new and sealed!) so I mean, the packaging is a little flimsy.

But really cute cap designs! Typical of Tokidoki.

Another reason why I like this product is because it's kind of shiny but NOT glittery. There are no random flecks of glitter anywhere! Nothing about glitter is too natural looking lol :) Sometimes I just want something... plainer!

Without the lip balm stain:

With the lip balm stain:

^Please excuse my dry skin!!! :( Maybe I should have turned off macro lol, accentuating all my flaws man :(

So as you can see, my lips went from pretty darn dry to not so dry with one quick coat of this lip balm stain! I don't see what's not to love.

In short...

Pretty short review but I hope I was able to convey my satisfaction of this product lol.

Also, don't forget to join my one-year giveaway here and make sure you have followed all the mandatory rules! :D


  1. Congrats on finishing your finals jane! Its always an exciting and scary feeling waiting for your results but I'm sure you did great! Oh, that lip balm looks great I've wanted one for awhile and I was going to get the new baby lips ones but they weren't avaliable in Aus yet.. and probably won't be for ages... -____-'' *sigh. It's a shame that the packaging is like that. Btw, your natural lip colour is so nice! ): mines always pale, makes me look like a corpse.

  2. Yayyyyy finals are over for me too :) I've been losing sleep too, but thank goodness gracious it's winter break so I can sleep all of the time! I really want to try this lip balm stain because I'm the exact same way- I'm not a fan of lipsticks or lip glosses and tend to stick to lip balm. The color looks great :)

  3. The color looks great!! The tube is still super cute imo ahahaha xD
