Givenchy lip balm/ lip tint

This was my very first luxurious lip tint purchase. I love it’s subtle red look and the way it’s so hydrating. It’s pricey but once I bought it I never looked back!

The Two Lipsticks I Can’t Live Without
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to spend much time on touchups once I leave the house for the day, but long-wear lipstick formulas dry out my lips. While I still try new products and lip colors out here and there, I always come back to my two favorites. First up is Givenchy’s Le Rouge Perfecto #02. Le Rouge Perfecto #01 is their best seller, but my skin is darker so #01 is a bit too light for me. It’s silky smooth and moisture-rich so I don’t have to layer a lip balm. This lipstick is a splurge but it’s worth every penny. And if I’m going to invest in makeup it’s always on my foundation and lip color.  What makes this lipstick really unique is that it reacts with your body chemistry and creates a custom color. For me, somedays it’s a vibrant pink while other days it’s a deeper pink. Whatever color it customizes to it always looks perfect.  Le Rouge Perfecto lasts for hours without fading. I usually only have to reapply after I eat.  I love to mix things up so when I’m not in the mood for a shade of pink I turn to Clinique’s #08 Graped-Up Chubby Stick. This color is a few shades deeper than my natural lip color giving me an elevated alternative to a nude lip. I have a few other shades of Chubby Stick but Graped-Up is my go-to. It’s more moisturizing than most lipsticks but I like to layer it over Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Moisturizing Lip Balm.  I reapply my Chubby Stick every few hours but its chubby crayon-like design makes it super easy to apply anywhere. In the morning I use the NYX Dainty Daze lip liner before applying my lip color but throughout the day I just apply it solo. 
givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto Beautifying Balm and let just take a moment to admire the beautiful, cute yet chic leather packaging of the tube. The one I have is 03 Sparkling Pink. It is a lovely pink color with little silver shimmers in it. The lip balm is formulated with shea butter that helps to moisturize and nourish, pepperslim (new to me ingredient) that creates a slight puffiness, to give that look of full, juicy pout and clean, cooling, fresh sensation and Eosin that reacts with the pH of the lips and imparts a customized pinkish rosy shade. . . The tube is skinny and do is the product inside it. It is not very soft in texture and so holds its shape. Not the most moisturizing and hydrating lip balm but because it is not super emollient, the color or the stain it leaves on the lips stays for quite some time. It does not sinks into the fine lines nor does it peel my lips after multiple applications. As far as the shimmers go, they are super fine and not gritty. They do migrate everywhere, simply because the lip balm loses its slip fairly quickly and there is nothing left that would hold the shimmers in place. This is not an issue because there are non shimmery versions too. I didn’t notice any cooling sensation or minty feeling. There is a subtle perfume scent to it that dissipates quickly. I have mixed feelings about this one. Love the packaging for sure and the stain shade is pretty lovely. Not very hydrating, which probably is the main task this product is supposed to do. It is way overpriced for what it is. If you have the extra cash, no harm in having a bougie tinted lip balm in purse. Very chic looking.

This tint in balm by Yves Saint Laurent has such an amazing texture. Its so light weight and moisturizing for everyday use for someone who doesn’t like to wear lipstick but wants some sheer colour. The reason why I gave it 3 stars would be the colour. When I went to the store to try this product it looked more red on my lips which is what I was looking for. When I tried it at home it looks more orangey which I’m not a big fan of. So im not sure if it was the store lighting that made it look nice or what exactly. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Volupté Tint-in-Balm

The NARS Afterglow Lip Balm in ‘Orgasm’ is a tinted lip balm that aims to leave the lips hydrated, protected (infused with antioxidants), and with a radiant finish. This product is also fragrance and alcohol free! The shade is subtle, but very pretty (see the swatch below my thumb)! It’s described online as a “peachy pink with golden shimmer”. This product’s formula definitely feels exactly like a lip balm, and leaves a nice tint and shine on your lips! I keep this in my purse at all times! It’s not the most hydrating lip balm, but I still enjoy it! I gave it 4/5 stars, mainly because of the price ($28 for .1 oz), at that price point you might expect something a little more dramatic in terms of color, but I like the way it looks on my lips, so it’s worth it for me! It also requires minimal effort since the color is so subtle and you don’t have to be super precise when applying. If you enjoy the color and can afford this price point for a lip balm, I would recommend it! If you’re really more worried about the hydration piece, you can find more hydrating lip balms at a lower price. NARS - Afterglow Lip Balm

These tinted lip balm pots are dreaaamy. They smell like candy, add a glossy tint and seriously moisturize! I have been keeping one at home and one at work on my desk for touch ups throughout the day. It feels so soft and dewy on the lips, leaving them plumped and comfortable-feeling. I highly recommend these! The only inconvenience is the fact that they’re in pots so you have to stick your finger in it to apply, but I guess it’s because the formula is so soft and emollient!

Kopari’s Coconut Lip Glossy is a petroleum free lip treatment that doubles as a gloss. I think of it as a luxe tinted lip balm. While I love the original, the tinted shade in “Birthday Suit” is one of my favorites. I’ve used this product for a little over 2 years now. I have a tube of this lip glossy everywhere. There is one at work, one at home and one in my bag. I admire the high quality ingredients in this product that help heal and moisturize my lips. It’s formulated with squalane, shea butter and 100% coconut oil. This product makes my lips feel so smooth and hydrated. I love to throw Birthday Suit on when I have light makeup days because it’s easy to apply and I love the sheer tint that it gives my lips. I also really enjoy that it’s not sticky and that it’s super long wearing, I can feel it on my lips hours after applying it! With that being said, I definitely think it’s worth the price tag; especially considering that one tube lasts me at least five months with everyday use. I’d highly recommend this product to people on the go, who would like a flattering and hydrating lip treatment and who love a long wearing lip product.
