|Hydra Tint SPF 15|
This baby cost me $23 CDN at Sephora. But was it worth it?
Really, really not.
Essentially, there are 3 problems with this lip balm. First, it smears everywhere, getting it's (admittedly rich and beautiful) pigment all over your face. I have little lips and having them ringed in smeary red lip balm is not a good look. Second, it is expensive. Nivea puts out some tinted balms for under $5 CDN. I'm looking into those after this puppy runs out. Third, if I'm being honest, it is no more moisturizing than a lip gloss. Whilst it felt like it sealed my lips (in a waxy sort of way) it did not feel "healing". I have seen zero improvement in my lips since using hydratint. It keeps your lips at their pre-existing condition. Perhaps (if I'm being generous) halting further drying. But in my opinion, many a drugstore lipgloss can do that just as effectively.
Not an essential by any stretch of the imagination. I'd say skip this.
Here I am wearing LM's hydratint. Isn't it a pretty colour? If only it didn't suck so much...
