Sometime last year, when Joppa had their BOGO on the Lip Twist in Bare, I could not resist but get 2 =)
For the price of 1. Or US$3.50 each if you split it up.

Joppa calls this a semi-sheer nude. I think that’s pretty much true. The lip twist comes in a standard round lipbalm container, transparent and with a waterproof label. The ingredients are listed on the label. The texture is pretty hard though not rock solid, pretty good for our climate in Singapore, if you don’t like them mushy. Colour payoff isn’t that great and my lip swatch had at least 7 – 8 coats of the lip twist. It did mute down my lip colour and give it a nuder appearance. It’s quite a wearable nude if you’re just starting out. Has a yummy glossy finish that isn’t OTT.
There is, however, a certain scent to this lip twist (as well as Melon Crush which I’d previously tried). It’s not unpleasant, though I don’t quite fancy it. It’s not that strong when applied on your lips and mutes away after a while. But still…
Packaging: 8 (pretty standard round container, points for transparency. I’ve not tried extending this out all the way so I can’t say if the lip twist can be extended and retracted back fully)
