Lush Santa Baby Lip Tint ($8.95) will give your pout a boost of festive red this Holiday season. Launched with the Lush Holiday/Christmas 2013 Collection this classic red tint is cola flavored and made with date and cherry extracts.
But beware it is PIGMENTED….
Lush Santa Baby Lip Tint comes in a tiny tin but likely you’ll be using this stuff into the next millennium because man is it pigmented. It makes me think of that jolly round man in red as the color is a vibrant tomato red!
It’s created using rich Fair Trude shea and cocoa butters as well as carrot oil with date and cherry extracts as well! It’s supposed to be cola flavored and scented but mostly it tastes like a sweeter (not tart) lemon. The initial layer is very, very dense and that isn’t any real surprise as many lip tints from Lush have the same issue however, after breaking through you’ll find the texture under it is creamier. I didn’t find it that moisturizing to be honest and it feels a bit heavier on my lips through the wear but man does it wear long! You can get a solid 5 hours out of it, sometimes even 6! And after it wears away it leaves behind a nice tint.
I obviously exaggerated the amount I am wearing below but I suggest sheering it out for a very subtle hint of cherry red on lips because it looks nicer that way. A little clear gloss on top also gives it a bit more pop because applied from the pot it has more of a satin almost semi-matte finish.
And hey, I’ve done it before, I’ll do it with this, you can always use it as a cheek tint as well! Lush It Started With a Kiss ended up on my cheeks more than once in the past.
Be jolly, be merry with Lush Santa Baby Lip Tint available now for a limited time at Lush shops or online at lushusa.com.
