Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm – RRP £5.99
My favourite is Pink Blossom which is a subtle and natural-looking shade of glossy pink. Red Dahlia is a nice plummy red but it’s too dark for me and I wouldn’t purchase that one again. Hibiscus is an orange toned shade. These tinted lip blams are really sheer and light coverage, it gives just a touch of colour and I highly recommend it as a great substitute for lipstick. Sometimes lippies can make me feel a bit OTT during the day time, especially if I haven’t got a lot of make up on and the Burt’s Bees tinted lip balms gives just the right amount of colour. Although it’s obviously not as pigmented as lipsticks therefore you can’t build up the colour, the lip balms are very conditioning and it is such a moisturising formula, it isn’t so annoyingly sticky like some balms and glosses can be.
Comparing these to a lot of the regular lip balms I use, these tinted ones lasts quite long on the lips and it doesn’t feel as greasy, sticky or heavy. It feels a bit like how vaseline does, but strangely, I find vaseline a little drying so I don’t tend to use that as much now. The Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms retails at £5.99 each, such a bargain for something so good and beautifully packaged.
