Lush Lip Tint Haul & Review!


In my most recent Lush haul I picked up two of their beautiful lip tints: It Started With a Kiss (How did it end up like this? Mr Brighside? No?) and Latte - the perfect stocking fillers this festive season! They sell for £5.50 each which seems a little pricey to me for these tiny pots, but in actual fact you actually get a lot more product for your money than most high street lip sticks such as the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipsticks (£5.49 ~ 4g) and the Topshop Lips range (£8.00 ~ 3g). Bonus!

Also props for my nifty product placement of my staple Primark tartan scarf - the must have of the season!


Let's start with my favorite of the two, Latte. The packaging is both simple and cute but it's easy to dent if left at the bottom of your handbag - oops! That said I think this product is absolutely amazing! I initially bought it after fan girling over the MaxFactor Flipstick in red and gold for so long and though that I could achieve a similar effect with my own bright reds and a hint of this little beauty to finish. It's extremely pigmented to the point where I was started just how little product I needed! Latte really is beautiful when worn both over the top of a bright pop of red, to give it a festive twist, or by itself for a nude sheen.

In the tub it looks stunning and only adds fire to the fuel with my rose gold addiction. But what really struck me was the smell - it's very difficult to describe with hints of almond, coffee and vanilla as well as icing sugar! But the overall effect is slightly leathery (in my, probably completely wrong) opinion and I really can't get enough of it! Hands down one of my favorite products of 2013, once again Lush you have well and truly nailed it!
I'll admit I was slightly disappointed with It Started With a Kiss. I don't think it has nearly as much impact and is certainly lacking in the pigment department, but that doesn't mean I was put off it's lovely "just bitten" look. It's definitely a lot more wearable than the shade in the tub and the perfect colour for spring.

As is the scent, it's is a lot fruitier than the rich, leathery sweetness of Latte and includes Coconut, Red Apple, Rose and Orange, in fact there is a whole host of scents - this product really packs a punch! I'm instantly transported back to childhood fairs with humongous shiny red toffee apples that you can never quite finish.

The only negative I can think of is the frankly bizarre texture of the two, which lies somewhere between a balm and shoe polish (as you can see on my finger), it's a little odd. All in all I would buy these two again, that is if I ever actually run out of the stuff - it seems to last forever! And I can't wait to try out the rest of Lush's Lip Tint range.

What are your favorite Lush products this season?

Stay tuned for the rest of the haul - coming soon!
