Lipology, Extraordinary High Pigment Tinted Lip Balm

Take note! This is flat out the best tinted lip balm that I have found to date! I am in love! I also can’t remember where I bought it! Ack!

Lipology tinted lip balm is so tinted that it perhaps it should be classified as a moisturizing lip stick, except that even the best moisturizing lippies do not feel truly conditioning like a balm. Lipology does. What is more, it included anti-aging peptides, broad spectrum sun protection, and it tastes fabulous.  Below is a swatch of the shade Raspberry.

Like I mentioned, I can’t remember where I picked up my lipology balm, but I suspect it was at Ulta. Regardless, I can’t seem to find it online. It looks rather unassuming—just like a standard lipstick, and I initially thought that is what it was. When I wore it, however, I was immediately very happy with the balm’s texture. It feels akin to a medium balm that is just buttery/waxy enough to last for quite some time, but also very moisturizing. I would love it as a balm alone. But then it adds truly wonderful color that also wears very well. My Lipology tinted balm lasts longer than many balms do, and the color lasts longer than manylipsticks. This isn’t the wimpy color seen with most tinted balms either. It  is a lipstick worthy pigment that can be worn for sheer (but not wimpy sheer) to medium coverage.

The Lipology tinted Lip Balm is also lightly flavored. It has a light mint taste that is not too strong. Instead, it is just enough to be pleasant and adds to the overall experience of the product being more like a balm than a lipstick.

Lipology makes a number of other lip products. If I can find them ,I’ll purchase some more to review. In the meantime if anyone comes across Lipology products please let us know where you found them! I am also sending an inquiry to the company about purchase locations.


Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Lip Treatment

In my opinion, Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15 is one of the absolute best lip balms out there. Unfortunately, at $22 it is also a bit pricey for a balm. However, it is a splurge that I find worthwhile, and I tend to buy one of the Fresh lip treatments every so often.

What I love best about Fresh Sugar Rose is the smell and taste. It is unique and lovely. The balm also packs in moisturizers, has a good medium texture that is not too waxy and not too oily, and includes a nice light tint.

Here are the product details:

Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 delivers a hint of color while nourishing, softening, and protecting the lips.

  • Enriched with the same nourishing oils and hydrating butters as the best-selling Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15.
  • Soothes, softens, and protects while offering the look of a sexy, just-bitten pout.
  • Provides essential year-round protection from damaging UV rays.
  • The bright addictive citrus flavor is infused with a hint of rose for an ultra-feminine effect.

Key Ingredients::

  • Sugar is a natural humectant that ensures long-lasting moisture.
  • Meadowfoam seed oil and apricot kernel oil are rich in super moisturizing fatty acids and vitamin E.

  • Antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols and vitamins A, C, and E provide protection from wrinkle-causing free radicals.
  • Paraben-free.

Fresh also makes some great cosmetics and spa items. All tend to have a bit high of a price point, but they also tend to be very high quality.


Kevyn Aucoin Lipstick

Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Lip Tint , Enchantaberry (Berry Red) is probably the best berry red lipstick I have tried. I was uncertain of the splurge when I bought it, especially since I have to be careful with reds, or they look too garish. But it turned out to be perfect.

Kevyn Aucoin Enchantaberry is a very popular shade for a reason. It isn’t too orange or too blue. Instead it is a nice berry red that will work with a wider range of skin tones, making it a pretty safe selection in the red color range. It basically is a good neutral cranberry, and I love it! If you click through the link above to the site, you can some rave reviews of it there as well. Below is a swatch of Enchantaberry:

The lipstick itself is medium sheer, but yet has a good tint to it. So it feels light, but does not lack for color. It also has moisture and pretty good saying power. It is a bit pricey, but less than my beloved Dior and some other top brands and I find it worth the price tag.
