English Rose

Yeah yeah, I'm aware with my medium-olive skin, hazel eyes, blonde-ish hair, I don't fit that description. But this does....

This is the E.L.F. Lip Balm with SPF15 in Rose. A tinted lip blam that has a very slight minty scent and tingle. It moisturises, it gives a subtle red colour and it's awesome. 

I have a Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint from E.L.F. already, in a pink colour, it's awesome too, but when putting through my pretty much monthly order to E.L.F. I saw this and wanted to give it a try. I have pretty much established that red lipstick is not really me, so in order to indulge my passion for lip colour, I thought a red tinted balm might be better. And it is. 

I'm struggling massively with dry lips at the moment, and haven't really been able to wear my favourite lipstick, so it's been even more important to be able to enjoy lip colour in a properly moisturising format. This ticks all my boxes. I did really like the look of the Revlon Lip Butters- nothing like a bandwagon. But personally, I begrudge paying £8 for a tinted lip balm. I burn through lip balms super quickly, so at £3.50, I don't mind so much. 

Have you tried the E.L.F. tinted lip balms?

Tinted lip balms are great.  They are quick and easy to apply, and they last forever.
