Ok, so I know Benefit have the MEGA launch out there of the new eye liner member of the ‘They’re Real’ family but this is the latest launch from them that has me excited (also can’t wait to see the new cream blush… but for now – let’s talk lips). They Benefit Balms have been out a while but I’d still say they’re relatively new – and whilst actually a pretty simple idea, I absolutely love them and you can be 99% sure if there’s a lip product in my bag at the moment it’s going to be one of these.
The four shades – and if you know Benefit you will already know this – all match one of their famous Bene-tint shades. So we have Posie-Balm, Lolli-Balm, Cha-Cha-Balm and Bene-Balm. Each matching their corresponding liquid tint shade so you can go for the full on matching lips and cheeks look. Or just opt for your own favourte lip balm shade of the bunch and go with it. If I was going to match shades I would have to opt for Posie Tint and Posie Balm as the pinky flush is my favourite. I actually haven’t tried Lolli-Tint so can’t reallyl say, but for me the shade is just a little *too* purple and don’t think it flatters my cooler toned skintone. I do like the Cha-Cha-Balm shade and any orange lovers will love this one, or if you have darker/olive skin this will look lovely. The classic Bene-Balm is the red tint shade much like the red-tint original from Benefit (the one that was originally a nipple tint…) and is the one I reach for if I want a slightly stronger colour.
For me, Posie-Balm is my favourite and the one I have in my bag day to day at the moment as it’s lovely and hydrating on my almost always chapped lips, plus adds just the subtlest hint on colour to the lips without looking too done. Which I am loving for relaxed Summer days.
Have you tried either the tints or the balms from Benefit yet? Any thoughts…??
