The Reason You're Seeing This Crystal-Clear Lip Balm All Over the Internet
By Danielle Fontana , Digital Editor |
It feels like just yesterday eos launched their iconic Sphere lip balms, but the brand’s latest launch is here to deliver some well-awaited fun (and healing) to dry lips and boring makeup bags everywhere. Enter Crystal Lip Balms ($5.50), the completely transparent, wax-free formula you’ll want to slather all over your pout (and snap pictures of simultaneously) the second you get your hands on one.

Instead of using wax like many other balms—in fact, the brand claims this is the first waxless lip balm—the Crystal’s clear, mineral-oil-free formula is made with five natural oils, including coconut, castor, avocado, aloe and sunflower, plus the added benefit of hydrating shea butter (a clear version), to leave zero residue or heaviness behind. The balm feels light and airy when applied, and the annoying layer of wax that can often build up on super dry lips is now officially a thing of the past. Even better, Crystal is paraben- and petroleum free, tested by dermatologists to ensure its hypoallergenic label and completely vegan.
But, as you can imagine, nailing this see-through balm (plus all of the bells and whistles consumers have come to expect from a product) wasn’t easy. "We have done rigorous testing on Crystal and we've created an exceptional formula," Dr. Mike Wong, eos' executive vice president of research and development, says in a press release. "We sought out the highest-quality natural and organic oils, and after years of development, the final product delivers superlative hydration without any heavy feeling on the lips."
Run, don’t walk, to snag this these new must-haves—they’re sure to sell out fast, as they already have on the brand’s website. The Crystals are available now in Hibiscus Peach and Vanilla Orchid scents, which feel just as good on your lips as they smell—trust us.
