My bad experience with wearing lipsticks is that my lips tend to dry up by the end of the day, and I remember that horrific experience that I could recall was trying out a very long-wearing lipstick that made my lips more chapped and dry ( I think it sort of sealed the lip color there ). I’ve learned the hard way that there are moisture-rich lipsticks in the market that don’t dry the lips too much, but there are days that I just don’t want too much drama on my lips, and want my puckers looking naturally red, and full of moisture.
One interesting product that I was given a chance to try was the Pur Minerals Lip Tint. The description below is just about what I want in a lipwear that I’d bring with me everyday,
You will never want to be without this luxurious and mineral-rich lip tint! Enhance your lips with a hint of color and a burst of intense hydration from Olive Oil, Mango Seed Extract, and Cocoa Seed Butter. Our lip tints offer intense hydration while protecting the lips with SPF 15. This formula is free of chemical dyes and is the pÃ¼r-fect blend of cosmetics and nature.
As I swipe Pur Minerals Lip Tint on my lips, I don’t feel a sense of “heaviness”, as I feel something buttery ( though not greasy ! haha! ) , as if it’s not locking in the color, but just moisturizing the lip, like a lip balm, just drier than a bit ( since some lip balms can be quite waxy and slippery textured ). This is a great product that definitely moisturized my lips, and yet gave it some YLBB ( your lips but better ) color. Ruby Sunset looks really red on the tube, but when applied, it just makes the lips look redder, as it is sheer enough that it would not pull off a matte or very pigmented effect. For some fairy-like effect, the pearlescent pink shade of Island Pearl is gorgeous, as it attempts a subtle, sheer, natural pink nude lip. Very pretty.
There are just about days when I want to totally forget about my lipbalm ( even if it is a sin ), and I’m quite relieved that PurMinerals has this Lip Tint that will definitely save my day!
