I’m constantly getting bored with my makeup routine. The latest makeup product I’ve decided to mix it up with is lipstick. Instead of blah blah boring lipstick (and lately I’ve been feeling it looks like you’re trying to hard when you wear it anyways), I’ve been experimenting with tinted lip balms.
I love these! They’re good for your lips, they give you the perfect tint of color, and the best part, they make your lips look kissable. Here are some of my favorite tinted lip balms on the market.
– Pixi Rose Lip Treat. $12. Available at Target. Contains Vitamin E, rose extract, and comes in rose or fawn.
– Burt’s Bee Lip Shimmer. $5. Available at most drug stores. Contains sunflower oil, and comes in 13 colors.
– Benetint Lip Balm. $20. Available at high-end department stores. Contains Vitamin E, SPF 15, and comes in rose (and smells like roses too).
Are there any other brands out there I’m missing?
Also, if you already have plain lip balm on hand like I do (I have three new, uncolored, Lipsmackers in my makeup case right now), you can make your own tinted lip balm by removing the lip balm from the tube completely, nuking it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds, adding a hint of color by adding a little bit of eye shadow or lipstick, and then you can put it all back in the tube for instant tinted lip balm.
