tinted lip balm

So I was pottering around Waitrose yesterday and this little beauty caught my eye.

Burt's Bees do lovely lip balm so of course (of course!) I wouldn't be able to walk past the display without picking one up.  Just to, you know, have a look.  The packaging is really cute, the lip balm comes in a cardboard tube, like a little parcel of lip balm loveliness. I bought one.

There are six colours to choose from on their website, I chose a pinky one although they all looked scrumptious!

Pink Blossom is a lovely pinky colour which looks quite bright (and a bit scary) in the tube but goes on really smooth and makes my lips look a pretty pink gloss colour.

I like it, it stays on for ages, looks pretty and is good for you - yes that's why I got it, it's good for me, knew I'd find a good reason for buying it eventually :o)

The only downside is that it doesn't have a nice smell, in fact it doesn't really smell of anything and I like a nice smelly lip balm.  Also, remember that it's tinted!! I tend to get a bit happy with my lip balm application and definitely do NOT keep inside the lines!!

Once (not that long ago) I bought the tinted pink Vaseline that comes in the cute tin and smeared it all over my lips straight after buying it.  Only when I got back to my car (after spending quite a while in town) did I realise that I had pink smeared all around the outside of my lips and I looked somewhat like a crazy lady clown!!  Be warned, this one is a little bit like that too, as I found out yesterday.

Pretty though isn't it?  It goes straight on to the definitely recommend list, tinted lip balm is such an ace idea, a way to fulfil total lip balm addiction whilst looking a bit more polished than usual. Win!

I've spent all day today on my essay so feeling stressed I walked Tilly, in the sunshine and everything, and then came straight upstairs to listen to some classical music and write this. Feeling a bit more relaxed now.
