PBJ Smoothie Stick Review & Swtaches

By Thursday, July 21, 2016 , , , , , , , , ,


Hello Everyone,

Today I am reviewing PBJ Smoothie Stick for you guys. I got this lip crayon in my June Glossybox. I have never heard of this brand before but that’s why I like these beauty subscription boxes because you get to try so many products from different brands. So let’s see how this one fared out.

Product Description: Our PBJ Smoothie Stick is an ode to our favourite healthy smoothie, Peanut Butter Jelly. We like ours with Almond Butter instead for a healthier hit of antioxidants and magnesium. The PBJ Smoothie Stick is a creamy and hydrating lip treatment which delivers moisturising, rich colour. 

Price: 13.20 € / 14.95 USD


Performance: PBJ Smoothie Stick is a Creamy Lip Crayon with twist up mechanism. I am not sure what shade this is exactly as it is nowhere mentioned on the product and neither is it mentioned on the list that comes in Glossybox. I have looked online for product info/swatches and I think it is Guava Nice Day. Guava Nice Day is a pretty berry pink shade which IMO will suit most skin tones. I thought that it will be a sheer, balmy type of a lip product but I was so surprised by this product. Like pleasantly surprised, this is a full on lipstick and has the nicest formula, feels really velvety smooth and just glides on your lips. No pulling or tugging at all. Finish of this is something I am really impressed with because it has matte finish but it feels so moisturising on the lips. It is so different from the usual matte lipstick that sucks the life out of your lips. I have dry lips and I stay clear of matte lip product but this feels so comfortable on the lips and doesn’t dry them out further. It doesn't settle into the lip lines or accentuate them. Very pigmented and the opacity of this is such that it can cover pigmented or discoloured lips.  It is not transfer or kiss proof but staying power is decent. It can last easily for 5 -6 hours with slight fading in the middle and it can withstand a meal and is not completely wiped off but you definitely need to touch it up throughout the day. If you use a lip liner then the wear time definitely improves. The only point of concerns with this is: One, the fragrance, it has a strong fruity scent. Personally I don’t mind it and I don’t sense it once I have applied it. But if you don’t like scented stuff then it could be an issue for you. Second,  the plastic cap is too flimsy.



The Good:
  • Creamy and smooth
  • Love the matte finish
  • Moisturising
  • Pretty shade
  • Doesn't settle into fine lines.
  • Decent staying power
  • Covers pigmented or discoloured lips

The Bad:
  • Availability
  • Fragrance might be a concern for some.
I really wanted to wear matte lips but most of them are drying and that’s why I stayed clear of them. But finally with this product I can sport a matte look. Plus the colour, formula and pigmentation of this is great. I really liked it and I am happy I got to try it.


Hope you liked this post!!
