Tinted lip balms are a Summer STAPLE in my opinion! I’ve been trying out these new ones from Benefit Cosmetics and I’m in love. If you’re a fan of Benefit then you’ll know about their iconic lip and cheek stains. These tinted balms are the “little sister” to each of the shades.
In the summer you want to lighten up your makeup routine over all. Nothing is worse than having heavy and sticky lips when it’s humid out! I don’t like to forgo colour all together though, which makes these perfect for the warm weather.
These hydrating tinted lip balms ($22 CDN) give just a hint of colour and are so comfortable to wear all day long.
You can see in the swatches above just how pretty, sheer and slightly glossy they are but they definitely add a subtle colour. Personally I find they kind of enhance my natural lip colour so it looks like I’m not wearing anything but my lips still look “naturally done” while healthy and hydrated.
I just wear these on their own but if you want a bolder colour with the hydration benefit try layering these on top of benefit lip tint or another lip stain. The tint will stain your lips for all day colour and the tinted lip balm will keep your lips moisturized and glossy.
I have to admit that I’m a sucker for the pretty packaging too! I know $22 is a bit pricey for a balm with just a hint of colour, but these balms contain mango butter so your lips will also stay healthy all summer.
I’m always really impressed with Benefit Cosmetics products – and not just for the cute marketing and branding 😉 I find most of their products really deliver and in my opinion that makes it worth spending the money.
What are your favourite tinted lip balms?
