Is it October yet?
Because I seriously need to get back down with The Walking Dead. ZOMBIES!
But bad news, Lauren Cohan will be in Season 2. Dude, that girl is everywhere. Supernatural, CIS: NY, Vampire Dairies, Chuck (the list goes on!) …she’s infiltrated all my favorite shows and she starting to annoy me. Stop it!
Speaking of zombies, naked lips…so damn hard to pull off without looking zombified. Granted, I don’t mind lookin’ like a Zombie. I said it before, I’ll say it again, Zombies are people too!
But I just can’t do the naked lip so well…My go to naked lip look is courtesy of Korres Cherry Full Color Gloss in Nude 33 who proved to me I could do nude.
And now I have Fusion Beauty LipFusion Tinted Lip Conditioning Stick who proves again I can go nude!
A tinted lip balm with an SPF enriched formula that gives lips a dash of color while making them look fuller and firmer.
These come in a slick mirrored tube with a convenient twist off cap. The packaging is practical yet very sexy. The kinda remind of Fresh’s Lip Balm packaging but a step way above.
The balms are available in five shades (I feel like hauling them all) and have a formula that sports an SPF 15. One of the ingredients is something that Fusion Beauty calls Amplifat which are marine collagen spheres that increase volume, firmness and fullness resulting in a full-out pout instantly and over time. I’m not sure of the lasting effect of Amplifat as I haven’t experience it yet but I will say that the balm does give my lips a bit of a lift and makes them look fuller. They have a minty fresh flavor sans a sting as hey, mint and plumping in any lip product normally means it’s going to hurt but there isn’t any stinging here!
The actual texture is that of a traditional balm with a bit more thickness behind it. These glide on nicely and fit lovingly onto the contour of lips while offering instant hydration and a moisturizing finish. The balms sadly lack a shiny, glossy finish but this is more than made up for the fact that they wear quite long so you aren’t having to chronically touch up every your balm every hour on the hour.
The tint proves to be just the right amount that gives the MLBB (my lips but better) experience. I tried two shades one of which was a great nude sans the zombie look. My favorite of the two shades, Buff, is a warm brown beige and the other shade I tried Clear is simply a transparent balm.
I start my day with either lipgloss or lipstick in place but as it wears away I’m simply too lazy to reapply it which is why I like to have a solid, good quality tinted gloss around to keep my lips looking pretty and these fit the bill perfectly. I’m seriously obsessed with Buff and its become an HG (holy grail) in my desk drawer (I recently got a back up at Ulta for my makeup bag).
There a little expensive for a balm at $22 each but I like them too much to rant about the price!
- Those seeking a high quality balm that gives lips a fuller appearance.
- Those wanting a touch of color or a more natural lip look!
- Those who are minimal makeup users.
- Those wanting a balm they can use for touch ups throughout the day!
- Those looking for a great barely there nude lip look!
- Those who aren’t keen on paying alot for a lip balm!
- Those sensitive to scented or flavored lip balms!
Fusion Beauty LipFusion Tinted Lip Conditioning Stick are a surprisingly little balm. I didn’t think these would be anything to rave about but they quickly proved me wrong. I really like the barely there, natural lip look and these provide that with a superior formula that keeps my lips hydrated.
