Benefit Posie Balm

Benefit Posie BalmYou may know that I am obsessed with lip products, I love trying out new ones and am always on the hunt for my ‘new favourite’. Recently I’ve been a little obsessed with Benefits Posie Balm which is a hydrating tinted lip balm in a gorgeous poppy pink shade. First of all I have to mention about how gorgeous the packaging is, it’s cased in a beautiful shiny pink tube and I am in love with how it looks (I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging). It contains mango butter which conditions your lips keeping them soft and looking great, I always try to use more hydrating products in the winter as the cold weather can really dry out your skin. Although I do think this shade is going to be even more pretty in the spring and summer!Benefit Posie Balm Review

Upon application it’s lovely and creamy, the colour simply glides onto your lips. Even though it’s a tint the colour can be built to show more on the lips however it’s not extremely pigmented since it is a tint, although this makes it very wearable for everyday. I also love that you don’t even need to use a mirror to apply which makes application throughout the day very easy. It lasts a few hours until I eat and drink which is when it wears off, I find this tends to happen with the majority of lip products so I don’t mind reapplying.

The balm is beautifully rose scented but isn’t overpowering, it’s more of a subtle scent which I really like. I’ve purchased many drugstore tinted lip balms in the past and have loved them so didn’t think a ‘high end’ version would be much better, however in this case you really can’t beat the quality and you do get what you pay for. It’s the best formulated tinted lip balm that I have tried and want to try out the other shades which all look so lovely too! Are you a fan of tinted lip balms and have you tried out the range from Benefit?

    Wow, at first I thought this was a new liquid blusher because the packaging looks like that of the tints :p this balm looks really pretty, and the colour is really nice too! I’m not too fond of tinted lip balms because I love a bold lip even for everyday makeup, but sometimes it is easier to apply one of these, two seconds and you’re ready to go! This shade of pink must look lovely on you :)
