balance Me Shine On Tinted Lip Salve

balance Me have just launched their new Shine on Tinted Lip Salves, and you know me, always on the hunt for a fab lip product, got my hands on one of them as soon as I could!

The lip salves are balance Me’s first foray into colour, and with them they have created an ultra-glossy, smoothing tinted lip salve which is designed to hydrate, protect and smooth with anti oxidants.

The collection comprises of three, 100% natural lip salves, which I would actually categorise as more like a gloss than a salve.
 Available in four shades, Rose blush, Nude and Ruby Red and sheer Raspberry, I decided to try Rose Blush.

I love the idea that this salve contains 100% natural ingredients and included the fab ingredients coco butter, shea butter and mango seed butter to help keep your lips plump and hydrated throughout the day.

I love the smell, which is delicately fruity and not overpowering.

I  like that the tints within the four shades have been formulated with natural mineral make up, giving bold colours but with natural pigment.

I did not however, love the fact that the salve was really glittery.

I’m not a fan of glittery make up, and for me this product had just a touch too much twinkle for my liking. Whether this is due to the mineral pigment in it, I’m not sure, but because of this I think it would be a salve that I personally would use on a night out rather than during the day.

A bit of sparkle, especially during the party season is fine, but for me, it would be too much for every day use.

Sparkle aside, (and if you like sparkle, then you’re onto a winner!) this lip salve is really lovely.

It’s light, hydrating and it certainly did what it promised and left my lips feeling soft and hydrated.

balance Me’s four Shine on Tinted Lip Salves are available now and cost £12 each.

  1. I have the one that came with a magazine a few months ago, I think it may have been Glamour magazine? I love most of balance Me's products but I have to admit I was disappointed with this. I found it kind of thin, it appeared to just disappear into my lips really quickly and I also really wasn't a fan of the glitter in it either. I'm glad I got the free one as I would have grabbed one of these when they were released and I'd have been disappointed with it x
