Essence came out with a whole bunch of new products for the fall and winter season which these tinted lip balms were a part of. Now that the temperature is dropping, we need to take extra good care of our lips. And what better way to do so then with a tinted lip balm? You benefit from both smooth lips and a hint of color.
These lip balms have a strong floral scent and come in 3 different shades, each with a shiny finish (the others didn't have much color pay-off). They apply very smooth and hydrate the lips like no other. The color stays on for about 2 hours and after that it leaves a subtle tint of cherry on the lips.
Light Upis a cherry red with a shiny finish. You could easily build it up and apply some more coats to intensify the color, but I only used about 1-2 coats. They are comparable to Maybelline's Baby Lips, although Baby Lips hydrate your lips for a longer time.
They are available at the drugstore and cost €2,39 each (1,9g).
