Pixi joins the realms of tinted lip balm pencils with their new Tinted Brilliance.
I guess we’ll see more of these chubby pencils as the Summer progresses as they are really trending at the moment with Clinique releasing new shades of their pencil, Revlon having their new Stain Balms, and Tarte releasing a new Tangerine shade for Spring/Summer 2012.
Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm actually had a Spring 2012 launch at Target and Target.com however I hadn’t tried them when they originally released so I was quite happy to give one a whirl recently.
Let’s have a look!
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain has recently launched in drugstores in 12 shades for around $6.79 each (that’s what I paid at Harmons).
These are very exciting release as they are a chubby lip balm pencil that resembles Clinique’s popular Chubby Stick and Tarte’s Lip Surgence at friendly price tag.
The variety of colors, budget price tag, and lighter, balmy formula will prove an ideal pick for Summer beauty budget’ors out there but are they as great as Clinique and Tarte?
Let’s take a look and find out.
The Dior Summer 2012 Collection releases the magic of Dior Addict Lip Balm in a new shade of coral. I’ve made no secret about my absolute love for Dior Addict Lip Glow and this is basically the same formulation in a new stunning shade of coral for Summer.
The shade keeps right on trend with the peachy, orange Pantone goodness we are seeing popping up at the moment but brings it to us in a more subtle, wearable shade with a moisturizing formula.
Sephora Be You Lip Balm is an extension of their recently introduced Color Reveal Lip Balm. I liked Color Reveal a lot. It was cheap, it flushed my lips very nicely, and I only complained about the taste….pretty darn great for a self confessed ranter about the Sephora Makeup Collection.
So, I was pretty excited about the Be You Lip Balm but I’m not sure why they bothered changing the name. The color is called Coral Twist and they could have simply just included a new shade or added it to the Color Reveal Lip Balm line up right? But hey, I don’t express knowledge on the mysteries of makeup marketing.
Let’s take a look and see if Be You Lip Balm is as great as Color Reveal.
Oh Fresh, the things you do to me.
Fresh Sugar Coral Tinted Lip Treatment is a new variation of their popular tinted lip balm in a lovely dark peachy coral shade. I’m loving it.
Have you tried it yet?
