A new range of cosmetic products is gaining popularity: tinted lip balms. This care product straddles the line between lipstick and moisturizing lip balm. It enhances the skin of the lips by adding color, while also hydrating and protecting them from external aggressions. But how should it be applied correctly? Here's how to proceed.
What is a tinted lip balm?
The tinted lip balm is a 2-in-1 makeup product, which is both moisturizing and tinting. Indeed, this multi-purpose care perfectly combines the characteristics of a lipstick and those of a moisturizing balm. It thus provides the skin of the lips with: hydration, nutrition, protection, comfort, and coloration.
Which tinted lip balm is used?
To choose the right tinted balm, it is essential to first examine the list of ingredients. The goal is to select a product that contains natural moisturizing, nourishing, repairing, and protective elements for the skin such as oils, waxes, or vegetable butters, and natural colorants. Conversely, it is preferable to avoid silicones, essential oils, BHA, BHT, parabens, and synthetic hydrocarbons (paraffin oil, paraffin wax, etc...).
Our tinted lip balm is, on the other hand, enriched with hyaluronic acid, castor oil and raspberry seed oil. It also contains peppermint oil macerate, which provides a soothing effect, a fresh sensation, and a minty taste. Furthermore, the choice of your tinted lip care also depends on the color. This parameter depends on your skin tone, the desired effect, and your eye makeup. At Typology, five shades of tinted lip balm have been created: ruby red, powdered pink, rosy beige, coral orange, and plum purple.
Method of applying a tinted lip balm.
To delicately enhance your lips while caring for them, take a small amount of tinted balm on the tip of your finger and distribute it by running your finger over the upper and lower lip. To achieve a more intense pigmentation, simply increase the amount of product and apply several layers. If you have fine lines around the lips, the color may bleed. To prevent this possibility or to simply add volume to your lips, it is advisable to outline your lips with a lip pencil.
For a uniform and polished result, it is recommended toexfoliate your lips regularly, at least once a week, to remove all dead skin cells on the surface and also to boost cell renewal. To do this, apply an amount equivalent to a small pea of grainy scrub on the skin of your lips and then perform light circular movements without pressing too hard. Finally, every evening, do not forget to remove your lip makeup with a gentle makeup remover, even if the tinted balm seems to have faded throughout the day.
