One of my favorite little indulgences is really good lip balm. I have to keep my lips protected and extremely well hydrated so high quality, effective lip balms aren't just a luxury for me, they are an everyday staple. Price and where I buy them isn't my biggest concern, performance is everything. However, if it happens to be a gorgeous product in lovely packaging, I'm certainly not going to turn it down!
ToykoMilk DARK Femme Fatale Collection Lip Elixirs qualify as gorgeous and are an experience, every time I use them. Packaged in sturdy, black enameled round tins with a raised design and logo they come with a decorative paper tape and plastic shrink wrapped over seal. The first delight is removing that shrinkie wrap. It comes off and a puff of the scent from inside reaches the nose and entices you to tear away the paper tape seal that is reminiscent of the government seal on a liquor bottle, remove that lid and get into the contents.
In the tin is a silken blend that contains bee balm, jasmine, crushed extracts of aloe and Vitamin E to soothe, hydrate, soften and protect my lips. Luscious flavor extracts tantalize the senses and keep me coming back for more.

The flavor I have here is Cocoa Noir NO. 60. This Lip Elixir scented with Dark Rum, Maraschino Cherry, Sweet Milk and Cacao Bean can be best described as unctuous. I was surprised at how complex, rich and full of depth is the scent of this lip balm. The flavor to the tongue is softly sweet with a zephyr of cocoa and vanilla. This Lip Elixir makes my lips feel soft, pampered and cherished. Just the stuff I need and the fact that it is a lovely sensual experience as well makes it doubly delightful.
TokyoMilk DARK Femme Fatale Collection Lip Elixirs come in six rich scent/flavor combinations so any sensualist should be able to find one, two or more that will entice and delight. I bought two more flavors (Salted Caramel and La Vie En Rose) after I experienced this one. I'm hooked! At $7.00 each, this is an affordable indulgence. It's also a perfect little cart tosser if you need just a few clams to make free shipping!
TokyoMilk DARK is cruelty free.
