Oh Lush, have I told you lately that I love you? Mmm forget it, I tell you too often. Don’t want you getting a big head about it now!
But I will say I simply adore your new It Started with a Kiss Lip Tint!
Gorgeous stuff, you need it.
A tinted lip balm featuring red apple, cinnamon and white chocolate flavor!
I’ve never been a fond fan of Lush Lip Balms however I will make an exception for Lush It Started with a Kiss Lip Tint. Oh how I love it so.
First things, first, the taste. Oh the taste. What a delicious cocktail of apples and cinnamon that give a tingle to my lips and a little zing! I don’t get the white chocolate but I do get a healthy dose of cinnamon which makes my lips tingle a fair bit! Notes of crunchy, tart apple comes up next so you’re left with a warm, spicy apple cinnamon taste. Part of the novelty is definitely the fragrance and flavor of the balm!
Next up the tint….
Not only is it tasty but it’s also a beautiful shade of warm, rich red. It stains lips a really healthy shade of red that should flatter most skin types particularly darker ones.
I like to double it up on my cheeks! OMG! It works so incredible on my face. It gives me a bright, warm flush of red on my cheeks that’s very natural and healthy looking! Honestly, it works better as a blush in some cases than a lip tint ha!
As with most Lush Lip Balms, it’s really a harder texture. This has always been a major issue with me in regards to their lip balms. Sadly, the texture is hard and doesn’t feel particularly moisturizing or hydrating on.
You really have to dig in and swirl around a fair bit to get it worked up a bit to get it to smooth on properly. I actually don’t mind in this case since the color makes the extra work for application well worth it!
- Anyone looking for a flush of color on lips (and yes, go ahead and use it on cheeks).
- Anyone who likes little flavored lip balms!
- Anyone who wants a cute Fall lip balm that stains their lips a warmer shade of red and their cheeks a healthy shade of color!
- Anyone seeing a highly emollient, hydrating lip balm.
- Sensitive types (this has a healthy kick of cinnamon which makes lips and face tingle).
One of my biggest pet peeves with Lush Lip Balms is definately the harder texture but in the case of It Started with a Kiss it can be easily overlooked for the cute color it imparts on lips and cheeks. It makes my face look so healthy when used on my cheeks! Absolutely adore it.
