I think if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ve noticed I have a bit of a lippie obsession. Especially for products that I can swipe on while on the go, without a mirror. Low maintenance lippies are my fave, so tinted balms are constantly in my pocket.
This tinted balm from ELF is probably the cheapest tinted balm I own at just $3. It’s definitely hydrating, the formula contains ingredients like shea butter, Jojoba oil, Coconut Oil and Vitamin E. There is some modest (but not full spectrum) UV coverage. If I was heading to the beach I’d definitely grab something else as my lip sunscreen, but it’s a nice bonus for every day wear.
I love that there is just the lightest hint of color. It’s enough to show up on my lips, but it is sheer and flattering (and yes, it is a bit darker than it shows up in this swatch picture). There’s a faint taste, I really can not describe it any better than as faintly sweet.
What lippie are you carrying around in your pocket lately?
