Don't you just hate it when brands you love aren't widely available where you live? I do. One of my favourite brands, theBalm, isn't widely available here in the UK. Little did i know that Beauty Chamber sold them (which made me a very happy Rosie!).
Today I'm talking about the theBalm Balm Shelter Tinted Gloss "Material Girl"* (£12, but on offer for £6 right now!). I said in a previous post how much I'm loving the bolder lip colours for Autumn and this is the shade i was drawn to. Material Girl is a sheer plum colour (it looks a lot more red in the tube) which is great for anyone wanting to try the darker lips but doesn't want something too dramatic. It smells heavenly, like liquorice (which i love the smell of) and isn't overly sticky or too thin. It stays for a reasonable amount of time, about 2 hours before i need to reapply which for a gloss, I'm happy with. I love the fact it's quite sheer - as a lot of people assume the more pigmented a product is, the better BUT we don't always want full on in your face colour. This lip gloss is perfect for a more subtle darker lip, suitable for school or work.
I love theBalm's packaging - it's always so pretty and cute i never want to get rid of it! All in all, i really enjoyed this product and can't wait to use it more and more this A/W.
Have you tried this product? What did you think? Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love,
