Best Of, Earth Friendly, Hot Lips - September 1st, 2010
I totally heart Badger Balm products. I have …many. The latest Badger lip products to join the crowd are the Lip Tint & Shimmers. These little gems rock! If you love tinted lip balm (and I do!), you will want to check these out.
The Lip Tint & Shimmer is two products in one: a tinted lip balm on one end and a shimmery lip balm on the other. Both are based on Badger’s always-popular Cocoa Butter Lip Balm formula (a personal favorite), with no added fragrance. The lip tint side is colored with mineral colorants, no dyes. Application is sheer, despite how dark they look in the tube, and easy – no mirror needed for goof-proof application.
There are four shades, and I have three. I have Garnet, Red Jasper, and Rose Tourmaline, and the fourth is Copper. Rose Tourmaline is the lightest, a pink color. Garnet and Red Jasper are very similar reddish shades – Garnet is more cool and Red Jasper is warmer. I don’t have Copper, but it looks like a brownish color. The Opal shimmer is essentially colorless, but adds a bit of sparkle.
These have pushed out other tinted lip balms to become my favorite. I love the cocoa butter formula, I love the subtle but flattering shades, and I like that they are two products in one. Another Badger Win!
