Back at the beginning of my challenge on Day 73, I wrote about one of the Burt’s Bees tinted balms which I’ve been using for a long time now.
Up to now, I’ve never tried any of the other balms in the range so I decided to buy another one to see how it faired up against the Pomegranate shade that I’d previously used.
I was expecting this to have a coloured or tinted balm but it actually didn’t which I was surprised by given that I wanted my lips to have a very subtle colour. But, given I bought it for the purposes of the challenge and wanted a natural makeup day, I tried it out and liked it.
As balms go, it’s hydrating and moisturising, and the pink grapefruit scent smells just gorgeous! Sometimes I find scented products can be a bit sickly but this is lovely.
I’m disappointed there was no tint, so it didn’t really do what I wanted it to do but I wasn’t feeling great so had a very lazy day at home, so the balm was the perfect lip product for the day that was in it.
If you caught my last post on the Clarins Lip perfector in Juicy Mandarin, you will know that I tried these out for the first time a few weeks ago and absolutely loved them.
Today’s shade / scent is Pink Grapefruit, and the reason I say scent as well as shade is because, not only does it have a gorgeous pink grapefruit colour, but it smells and tastes deliciously like grapefruit too.
Citrus scents are always my favourite scents whether it’s handcream, candles, or of course, lippy. I just love the freshness of citrus and it always makes me smile, and today, there was a very big smile on my face when I first applied this.
The formula as you’ll know from my last post, is a creamy gloss, but has no stickiness at all, and has a lovely soft, luxurious texture which makes the lips feel so smooth when you wear it.
The pigment is gorgeous; so good for a high shine gloss, and although slightly sheer, still gives a lovely pop of colour.
I loved this as much as I did the first time I tried it, and I’ll definitely continue to wear these for a long time to come yet.
