Lipstick is powerful stuff – it can brighten your day and just somehow has the power to make women feel sexy and confident. But some people (like myself) are a bit useless at wearing it. I inevitably spend the day checking the mirror, convinced that some must have ended up on my teeth. Not to mention that some of these trendy longwear formulas might look good, but can leave lips feeling and looking dry. And dry lips are NOT sexy. So what’s a girl like me to do? Enter tinted lip balm.

This multipurpose product not only keeps lips soft, plump and moist but also adds a sheer pop of colour. Whether you want to pair it with a full face of make-up or just wear it on its own, you really can’t go wrong.
