During my lovely day trip to Boulder, we popped into Lush! I’m always so happy to get to Lush and pick out a million things and then..look at the prices and stick them all back. There’s just something about paying $8.00 for something I can only use once (tip for that? I break all my bath bombs into pieces before using them). I usually receive a lot of stuff from Lush for Christmas since I’m a huge fan of Christmas scents for bath things. I’m rambling.
So I’ve been trying to find a good lip tint to wear during the Spring and Summer time that does a few things. A. Compliments my skin tone well B. Has lasting power C. Keeps my lips moisturized D. Doesn’t rub off on my beau’s lips when I give him a smooch. I’ve tried a few different ones not from Lush, but not in this sort of shade. I snatched up the Lush Lip Tint in It Started With A Kiss. It was $8.95 (semi pricy in comparison to some of the other Lush lip balms) for one and is a lovely bright raspberry color.
The super peppy Lush employee was explaining to me that a little goes a long way with the balm and that it is easily built up. She was definitely right (as seen in the swatch picture above!). It is quite pigmented and has a nice smooth texture. It isn’t as moisturizing as I wish it was. It dried a bit and left my lips sticky. I applied EOS lip balm before hand and it applied a bunch better and stayed on longer. Which is another thing. After an hour or so I was tempted to reapply which was a bit disappointing. I was hoping it would keep since it’s just so pigmented. As far as the kiss test went, hoorah! It did not transfer and my beaufriend was pleased. It is a great and slightly musky vanilla rose scent. The Lush employee also told me it works well as a blush when mixed with some foundation or moisturizer. Yet to have tried that, but I’ll let you know! As far as on my lips go, I adore the color. Not the best at keeping my lips moisturized, but the color is super. I don’t think I’d purchase this one again because I can’t justify the price especially since I mostly just like it for its color.
I hope this was helpful! Want more reviews? Let me know! Any questions? Ask! Ever used this Lip tint? What did you think? Know a better lip tint? TELL!
Have a super fantastically amazing day doing what you’re doing!
Yup. That sounded odd. Later, bow friends!
