Today’s post is one of the more random ones of my challenge so far in that I’m trying out a lip product from a brand I’ve never heard of, and also because it’s a tinted balm.
I’ve tried a few tinted balms over the course of my challenge, mainly because I want to show how you can get colour on your lips, even if you’re not a fan of lipstick or lip gloss. Some tinted balms have gorgeous pigments and give the lips a lovely pop of colour; it all just depends on what you’re looking for in a lip product.
When I was in the chemist last week stocking up on some pregnancy bits, I saw these tinted balms up at the counter beside the till. Of course when I saw they were tinted, I had to buy one and give it a try to see what it was like.
The shade I chose was Cherry, and it definitely has a Cherry look about it when you open it. But more importantly, it also definitely gives the lips a subtle red-pink gloss of colour when you apply it.
In terms of formula, I found it quite moisturising; not as creamy as I was expecting but it made my lips soft nonetheless and lasted pretty well on the lips too.
My only real issue with it is that I can’t find anything out about it online. I searched high and low but unless it’s trading under a different name that I’m unaware of, it has no website or social media pages that I can find. So it’s kind of a mystery really!
