Obsession is the truth! This is what I’ve been wearing on my lips lately: on repeat! This winter I’ve really gotten into tinted chapsticks and balms. I’ve written earlier about Burt’s Bees and Almay, which I love, but these Colour Riche Lip Balms from Loreal are AMAZING!
They are pretty straight forward: they moisturize and tint your lips. I’d say they would be best described as a sheer lipstick with a touch of gloss. Here’s why I love them:
*They keep the lips moist (especially in the dry winter months.)
*You can experiment with bright colors or tones without being obnoxious. Think of a sheer pop of red or pink….they are fantastic for daytime.
*If you like a slight bit of color on your lips or are an avid chapstick user, this gives you more glam and fullness than an ordinary chapstick.
*It’s a perfect cheat to make your lips look bigger by using these….you can draw a little outside of the lines and it’s very forgiving. It makes the power pout look super voluminous!
*They are a great gateway into lipstick wearing if you are afraid of wearing color, but want to venture out.
*There are a million shade choices for every mood or scenario!
*Great low price tag!
Funny that I just made a love list of why these balms are awesome, but you know me…..if I’m obsessed I have to share! I made a quick little video so that you can (kind of) see them in action. All the colors go on a lot more sheer than they look in the tube. Hope you enjoy the tip!
PS I just arrived in Milan from New York (CIAO!) and am trying to stay awake to fight the jet lag while typing this…..so if I sound like a weirdo or there are any typos….SO SO SORRY!! Excited to be back in Milan, and will be kicking off Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday.
