Hydrate Those Lips with Benefit Cosmetics Hydrating Tinted Lip Balms


Benefit-Hydrating-Lip-Balms-1

So back in May I told you that the Benefit Hyrdating Lip Balm in Bene Balm was one of my favourite products.  It still is!  Sadly, I have almost used up the one I had so of course this lead to a shopping trip to pick up a replacement.  Well not only did I pick up a replacement of Bene Balm, I also picked up Posie Balm, Lolli Balm and Cha Cha Balm as well!  Overkill?  Perhaps!  Do I care?  Not a chance.

Retailing for $22 CAD, each of the various Benefit Hyrdrating Lip Balms is a fraternal twin to their ever popular cheek tints of the same name! Memo to self: Pick up full sized versions of the cheek tints because your mini sample sizes are running out*.  I know a lot of people were disappointed with just how sheer these are, but I really don’t understand why.  They are lip balms, not lip tints, gloss or lipsticks.  To me a balm is supposed to be all about moisturizing your lips and if it provides a little colour, then great.  In my eyes a balm is not where I am looking for highly pigmented colour payoff.  If I want that, I will pick one of the other lip products.  I personally love just how sheer the Benefit Hydrating Lip Balms are.  They, to me are all about moisture and the sheerness really lends itself well to being able to wear them under other lip products.

While I am still in love with Bene Balm, my new favourite is Posie Balm.  There is just something about a nice pink shade that works so well for summer.

On it’s own or under my lipstick, the Benefit Hydrating Lip Balms will continue to be one of my go to products for some time to come.  You can purchase them at Benefit, Murale or Sephora.

    wow you must really love it if it is almost done! the packaging on these is just so cute. also loving your layout by the way :)

      Thanks Zoe! I do love these, probably much more than I should considering the price point. But despite the sheerness of them, the formula is just so moisturizing that I think it’s an even trade.

      I think I will stick with this layout for the foreseeable future, but don’t quote me on that!

    i’m not sure i see enough color for these to be worth the price. esp since there are cheaper drugstore alternatives. BUT i’m glad you love them so much!

      There are cheaper drugstore alternatives, but the thing that always frustrates me at the drugstore is note being able to test anything (not that I ever would test anything on my lips from the store anyway). For me, these could be completely sheer and I would still want them.

    I love a good sheer lip balm for summer! These look super pretty on you, Nicole- glad you’re loving them :)

      Thanks Jennifer! I do love me a sheer lip balm as well. Especially since I don’t always want to wear lipstick, but then when I do, I have a good moisture base with these underneath! It’s a win/win for me.

    I love these! I have Lollitint and wear it daily, it’s so moisturizing. I think the reason I was disappointed in the colour payoff is bc the promo images made them look so bright and vibrant. And then when you apply them they are just sort of meh. But I love the formula and will continue to wear it!
