These gorgeous flower jelly lipsticks have been around the internet for quite some time now, earning the title "world's most beautiful lipstick" from beauty bloggers and influencers. There are a few brands out there who produce these flower jelly lipsticks, but we tried the ones from beauty brand Kailijumei - a small company based out of China - to see if it really changes colors on your lips and to see if the flower inside is actually real.
On its website, Kailijumei advertises its products as cruelty-free and made with natural ingredients like candelilla resin, cocoa butter, beeswax and lavender oil. It has gold specks and a tiny floret encased in the center of the lipstick.
There is an ingredient called CI 45410 -- or more commonly known as RED 27 -- that reacts to the pH level of your skin to change colors on your lips. Kailijumei says the warmer your body temperature is, the darker the shade will be.
The lipsticks sell for $15 a piece and also give you an option to buy sets for a little less.
Many have claimed that the flower inside the lipstick is real. So I did what any other curious human would do: I cut up the lipstick and took out the flower to examine closely.
Verdict? It certainly looks real, but I couldn't tell if it was actually real - the petals looked as though they were glued together in the center because they didn't easily fall apart. Maybe that's the lipstick holding it together if it is real? Is anything real?
If you just can't get enough of viral beauty products, watch how this face mask made my colleague look old - but for a good reason.
