Tinted lip balm is something I’ve always enjoyed wearing, and even when I’m working from home most hours of the day, it’s the only thing I put on my face with any regularity apart from sunscreen. This one from Henne Organics, however, is my ultimate favorite. No contest.
The balm comes in eight shades, though Azalea, which is a bright pink, is the one I wear most. It gives me a flattering hint of color in a matter of swipes. (Two, to be exact.) And because it’s so subtle, I never have to find a mirror to apply it. I just glide it over my lips, step back and admire the way it brightens up my face just before my next video call.
The buttery texture feels good and has a nice slip to it that’s somehow never slick or sticky. The shine is more of a soft sheen, and the sheen catches the light in a way that makes my lips look plush, and not like I’ve just had something greasy for lunch.
