Good morning, beauty nerds! So Spring is finally upon us and the weather is starting to warm up. It’s Summer 24/7 here in Malaysia, but it isn’t as good as it sounds. This is the time where the weather starts to burn up, rain is pretty much non-existent, and our annoying mosquito friends come out to play and feed on the unluckily “sweet-blooded” (myself included). In this super humid, grossly-sticky season, I like to wear minimal makeup and choose makeup products that feel as lightweight as possible. This is the time I break out the serum foundations, and tinted lip balms.
A fairly newly launched tinted lip balm that has been a staple in my every day makeup drawer is the Mentholatum Sugar Lip Coloured Lipbalm. It promises ultimate hydration that seals in moisture and gives soft, supple, youthful lips while giving a pop of colour to the lips. This is a great every day product to enhance your lips for that bright, natural makeup look. If you love Soft Pink Lips in just one swipe, this product may just be the one for you!
There are four shades available: 01 Vintage Pink, 02 Dancing Pink, 03 Kissy Pink, and 04 Rock ‘N Pink. I have Dancing Pink and Rock ‘N Pink to show you guys in this post today!
Dancing Pink is a cool-toned, frosted baby pink colour. This colour is super gorgeous and sparkly, but because it is so cool and light, it looks a little too white on my medium, yellow-undertone skin. However, if you have a cooler or neutral undertone, or if you love light pinks, this is definitely one you should try! The colour is very pigmented as you can see in the swatch! Dancing Pink does have tiny glitters in them so if you’re not a huge fan of glitter, maybe skip out on this shade.
Rock ‘N Pink is an “almost-red-but-not-quite” pink colour, and this one is my every day lip colour of the moment! This gives a pretty wash of pinky-red on your lips that looks like that “popsicle” lip. This red is pretty neutral-toned so it will go well with all skin tones.
These are again, formulated with their Brown Sugar recipe. Brown Sugar is actually a natural humectant that will nourish, smoothen, and seal moisture on the lips. When applying this, the Brown Sugar instantly melts into the lips to hydrate and soften the lips. Other than that, the formulation of this lip balm also includes amazing hydrating ingredients like Super Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramide and their very own MaxiLipTM formula.
I love these lip balms so much! They feel very good on the lips because they are very lightweight. The formula of these aren’t sticky, or waxy, or slippery. They just feel like a very thin, moisturising layer on your lips. This product applies like a dream – the brown sugar formula melts into my lips and the product just glides on effortlessly. As for the longevity of this product, I find that this is pretty long lasting compared to other tinted lip balms. However, being a lip balm, you definitely have to reapply after eating unless you’re a very delicate(is that even the word to describe it?) eater which I am not haha. I don’t mind reapplying though because these are very easy to reapply – you don’t even need a mirror!
These are available at all leading pharmacies and supermarkets across Malaysia, and are priced at RM15.80 each.
If you are looking for a natural, every day lip colour that looks and feels great on the lips, definitely check this Mentholatum Sugar Lip Coloured Lipbalms range out. I rock Rock ‘N Pink (bad pun heh) every single day and it perfectly enhances my lip colour to give a soft, rosy look. These are very affordable too! They are also great if you’re always on the run, or late in the morning, you can just slap these on without a mirror and your lips will look amazing even without a lipstick.
Thanks for reading, xoxo
