Amuse Dew Balm Review
This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Jolse.
I didn’t expect to like the Barbie movie, and I definitely didn’t expect to lust after some of the makeup colors Margot Robbie wore on screen. Typically, pinks aren’t my vibe, but some of the lipsticks looked so great that I wanted something similar. Of course, Lisa Eldridge lipsticks used on set cost $30+ a pop, plus nobody says which specific ones were used in which scenes. The best I could find was a list of lipstick and lip gloss colors that were combined for different shots. I would have to get them all and try out different combinations to see how close I could get. Um… that’s an expensive experiment.
Kbeauty to the rescue, as always. Amuse is one of my favorite discoveries of 2023 - they make wonderful lippies. I haven’t had their Dew Balms yet, so I grabbed one on Jolse. The balms come in 6 variations; I chose 06 Dew Rose - a cool tone dewy rose petal color.
Amuse Dew Balm is infused with squalane and apple seed oil to moisturize and provide a glowy finish.
How to use
Apply to lips when desired
Layer different colors for a unique effect
The texture is a bit firmer than a traditional lip balm, still allowing the product to glide on easily. I think naming this a balm was perhaps a mistake. When I hear “balm”, I think of very little color, but the Amuse Dew Balm has beautiful pigment. I would have called this a cream lipstick, but nobody asked for my input.
This will leave some marks on mugs and people, but when the creamy layer eventually wears off, it leaves behind a pretty stain / tint that lasts for a few hours. The balm does a wonderful job moisturizing the lips while still looking like lipstick. It provides a great color without drawing attention to dry patches.
Pictures do not do this color justice, despite my best effort. It’s a beautiful cool pink that doesn’t scream “Barbie” in a traditional sense, yet has the same vibe as my favorite looks from the movie. I wasn’t really trying to recreate anything when ordering the Amuse Dew Balm - I just wanted to try this line of their lippies since I like their other lines. But it all worked out in the end.
I love how smooth and soft my lips feel when I wear the dew balm. The color is noticeable but fades evenly, so it doesn’t have to be reapplied if I don’t feel like it. It’s perfect for a casual weekend look or for a fancier event (perhaps paired with a more intense eye look). Wins all around.
I highly recommend trying #Amuse lip products - they are well priced and work great. I haven’t had anything I didn’t like, and I tried four different lines so far. I will keep trying whatever they come out with as well.
