Palladio Tinted Lip Balm

I am completely obsessed with lip balm style lip colours.  I love Dior Rouge Serum, Revlon Lip Butters and anything else that is both a colour and a treatment in one.  This lip balm is such a stand out product as it delivers buildable colour but is first and foremost a lip balm so it’s really good at treating dry and cracked lips.

The one I have is in the shade Cotton Candy which is a very pretty pale(ish) pink that can be built to a slightly stronger and brighter pink.  It’s got the tiniest hint of sparkle and is pretty much neutral in my opinion; it does lean slightly towards peach but only ever so slightly.

According to the blurb it’s flavoured with vanilla.  I love vanilla but I wouldn’t say it’s got a strong enough flavour to mention.  What it does have is UVA and UVB protection which is fab, especially if you consider how reasonably priced it is at £6.  There’s currently a promotion running making it even cheaper at a fiver, so it really is a fantastic find, both as a lip colour and a lip balm.  It comes in nine different colous, all of which can be found at Beauty Naturals here.

I believe this is a really quality dupe for my all time favourite lip colour which is Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine in Royallieu, so I’ll be uploading some dupe shots shortly.
