The story thus far: After years of Vaseline and Lucas Papaw, my lips and I have decided to break up with Petrolatum. The reasons for this detox of sorts can be found in my previous post.
In the last couple of weeks I have jumped right into petrolatum free lip balms (with lots of help from my lovely twitter friends, especially Anissa from Beautifully Glossy, and Miss Sensuous)- and I’ve decided to review all of them! (eventually)
Kirsten from Lanolips very kindly included a surprise tube of Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour in ‘Apples’ when she sent over her ’secret strength mix‘ for me to try. How sweet is that?
Colour: Apples is a creamy true red colour which applies fairly pigmented but after about 30mins of wear becomes a beautiful sheer rosy tint on the lips. Because my lips are fairly pigmented I find that I need to reapply after each hour if I want the colour to show up.
Texture: Apples is a tinted lip treatment so it’s feels like a balm on the lips with none of the stickiness of a gloss. It’s fairly moisturising on my parched kissers (hurrah!) so I found it’s great on a day when my lips are too dry to wear a lipstick but I still want a bit of colour.
