E.L.F.Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint in Rose (pictures 1 & 2) and Berry (pictures 4 & 6) // £3.50
I recently placed an order at E.L.F. and one of the things I purchased was the Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint in Rose. At the time I did my order, there was an offer on for a free mystery goody bag if you spent over £15, and one of the things in my bag turned out to be another one of the lip tints in the shade Berry. As you can see from the photos, they’re very similar so I probably wouldn’t have ordered both of them by choice. Saying that, however, I really like both of these colours and I think I will definitely use them both lots so I’m not too worried about having two almost identical lip tints.
The website claims these give “lip quenching colour”, and I would definitely agree. They’re packed full of good things like shea butter, jojoba oil, coconut oil, Vitamin E and SPF 8 to help protect and hydrate your lips. They feel really moisturising, more so than most of the lip balm/chapstick type products I usually use on my lips. I don’t know if it’s just my imagination, but my lips seem to be less dry and a bit nicer looking in general since I’ve started using these.
I was expecting these to give a fairly sheer tint of colour, but they’re actually quite pigmented. Obviously because of the nature of the product you do have to reapply it a few times throughout the day, but they do give quite a strong colour that lasts for a good few hours. They give a much more natural finish than lipstick would, so are perfect for adding a little bit of colour to daytime makeup. I really don’t suit nude lip colours but I don’t like wearing bright red/pink lipstick during the day, so these are great for a pop of colour without looking too done up.
I (still!) haven’t tried out the Revlon Lip Butters, but from what I’ve read I imagine these would be quite similar, plus they are a bit of a bargain at only £3.50. I think these will be great for the winter as they’ll help to keep my lips nice and moisturised whilst adding a lovely pink flush of colour.
