Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm
Soooo I went back to colored hair. I couldn’t take it anymore! Fun shades were popping up all over, reminding me of just how colorful hair and life ( too cheesy? ) can be.
It’s a pretty muted color because I technically can’t have weird hair on the job. Technically.
Manic Panic After Midnight Blue to the rescue!
BUT with colored hair comes bright lips.. they go hand in hand in my brain. :) Hence the new lippies I got yesterday after work!
They’re the Catrice Pure Shine tinted lip balms. Saw these pop up all over Dutch blogs and they reaaally tickled my fancy heehee.
Two shades were calling out from the shelve: 070 I Don’t Red It and 030 Don’t Think Just Pink
Hurray for handy packaging! Twist-up tube!
Time for a swatch!
First bare lips for comparison ^_^
030 Don’t Think Just Pink: the name really says it all, no need to think too much about it. Seems like a shade that’ll always work! Slightly warm neutral pink.
070 I Don’t Red It: definitely more of a shade to think about! Not really in harmony with my eyes of the day..! ;D This is an orange tinged red.
Stuff with orange reds coming up soon.. Amy inspired me to pull them out of their summer snooze. ^_^
Found a list of ingredients here which conveniently says how irritant they are as well!
Yummy… a soft puff of vanilla.
At €4.99 they’re not that inexpensive for a drugstore tinted lip balm (in my opinion). But they do provide a healthy sheen, feel moisturising on the lips, glide on super easily and stay put like a balm would.
As you can see they pack some great pigment too.
Just a low maintenance everyday go-to really!
I wonder, what’s your easy lip go-to? Are you a gloss person or a balm personality, let me know!
Personally I hate how my hair gets stuck in gloss, I much prefer a balm! >_<
