My Holiday wishes have come true. Guess who’s back?
I read about the reunion months and months ago but I’m happy to report it’ll be premiering on BBC America in January. Ab Fab fans feel free to squee with me. When I grow up I so will be Patsy.
To celebrate all things British and fabulous we should of course include a little Lush Cosmetics in this post.
Let’s take a look at the new Lush Latte Lip Tint.
Lush has a major problem when it comes to lip balms and tints….yup, betcha know what I’m talking ’bout right? The drier, hard texture with the waxy feel that Lush seems to favor with their formula.
Lush is a company that excels at so many amazing products but for some reason they can’t get a balm down straight.
Good news, Lush Latte Lip Tint has a smoother, softer feel.
Bad news, it’s still not perfect.
Got dry lips? Don’t bother. Latte Lip Tint will sit on top of your lips and look ghastly. Softer lips? You’ll get a smooth glide here however the formula is still pretty dry so it does sit on top of lips a tad unnaturally but a little gloss definitely clears things up.
You’re getting there Lush, you’re getting there! A little more work and they might just get it!
Latte is a metallic bronze-y orange shade like that of a brand new penny. I love the shade so much! It applies like a liquid metal on lips and looks rather pretty if you follow up with a hint of gloss but it does look rather dry and accentuates fine lines on lips if you use it alone.
One thing you can do is multitask with it as it makes a fine blusher and gives cheeks a high sheen of peach or on eyes for a wash of metallic bronze.
Lush says it’s flavored like coffee, icing sugar and vanilla to give it a latte-like flavor but to me it tastes a bit waxy and vanill-ish, very artificial to say the least and a tad on the unpleasant side.
Overall, Lush Latte isn’t anything to write home about sadly but I always feel that way about most of the balms and tints Lush does. But hey, it multitasks like it a little demon so it’s nice for quickie makeup on the go!
