C.O. Bigelow | Mentha Lip Tint in "Plum Mint" & Violet Mint" | Review + Photos

C.O. Bigelow promises the perfect pout with their new Mentha Lip Tint, available in Ginger Mint, Violet Mint, Plum Mint, Pink Mint, Magenta Mint, and Bare Mint. The mint-infused lip balm imparts a sheer hint of warm color and glossy high shine with a refreshing, cooling sensation. Lips stay moist and protected. The glosses not only provide a hint of color but also long-lasting freshness to breath with 100% natural mint flavor.

Glow: OK so being a girl who's all about her good old faithful carmex I've gotta say that I was pleasantly surprised at the way these Mentha Lip Tint's felt on my lips! If I had to sum them up in one word, they feel & taste exactly like "spearmint" which I love! Call me weird but I love that cooling tingly feeling. I also love that they moisturized my lips really well throughout the day.

Glare: Well what disappointed me the most about these Lip Tints is that there's no real color payoff. They went on my lips practically clear. Although they come in a variety of colors, they go on sheer. I also noticed that when squeezing the product out the tube it's like the clear spearmint stuff comes out first and not much of the color. However I do think these tints would be great paired with one of your fave lipsticks or glosses because they are super glossy and have a lot of shine.

Would I Recommend It? Only if you're really into natural products and that tingly mentha feel. It's a great moisturizer but if you're looking for a gloss with a considerable amount of pigment then these aren't for you.

Where To Buy: The Mentha Lip Tints currently retail for $7.50 each. To purchase or to learn more please visit www.bigelowchemists.com
