Benefit Tinted Lip Balms

03 June 2014

As soon as I heard about these I knew my bank account was in for a bashing! If you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know that I'm a huge Benefit fan, and I have a total weakness for lip balms so the new tinted lip balms from Benefit are like a dream come true!



I decided to pick up 3 of the shades for my ever expanding Benefit collection, Lollibalm, Chachabalm and Posiebalm. They all have a slight rose scent which wears off after application, and the packaging is just beautiful. The cardboard outer boxes are adorable, and the actual casings are gorgeously shiny and look really high-end.



The tints are all exactly that, just tints. This is what really appeals to me about lip balms, the fact that you can apply them on the go without needing a mirror, whilst also adding a hint of colour to your lips. Personally I think everyone will get something a bit different from each of these shades depending on thier lip colour. 




Below I've got some on the lip swatches, just to show exactly how tinted the balms are. This first swatch is for Lollibalm, and you can just about see the slight lilac wash it gives to my lips.




Next we have Posiebalm, which has more of a pink tone to it.



And finally, Chachabalm which is probably my favourite of the three.




The balms contain mango butter to soften and hydrate your lips, and they are incredibly comfortable to wear. There's no stickiness, and you can feel your lips softening after wearing the balm for a while.

You can find all three of these balms and Benebalm (the one I didn't get, but will be adding to my collection shortly!) here for £14.50 each.


Which shade is your favourite?

    1. I did try one of the Maybelline Baby Lips, and I think they're completely different. Baby Lips leave my lips feeling quite greasy, and don't moisturise as well. These balms leave more of a satin feel, they're almost like a body butter for your lips! Super moisturising, and well worth the extra cash!

  3. These very moisturizing. I haven't had much luck with tints as the one's I've tried have been drying. I'll need to check these out.
    Thanks for sharing
