Lush Snow Fairy Lip Tint
Advantages: Taste, colour, price
Although Lush is an extremely popular brand, I have never seen the fascination with it. The only thing I have ever had from there is a solid perfume which my sister bought for me a couple of years ago. One night while at work, Katie, my colleague, asked me if I wanted to try her lip tint... as it was pink and pretty, I said yes!
The lip tint in question was Snow Fairy, a Christmas product from Lush. As this is a Christmas product, you can only buy it during this time but I do know that eBay sellers do sell this year round if you are desperate. I couldn't actually get any in Nottingham where I live but my lovely boyfriend managed to get some some in the sale elsewhere for half price. Knowing I can't get it at any other time of year, he got me a couple of tins.
In each small metal tin, there is 10g of product which may not seem like a lot at all. The tin is actually full right to the top though and you do only need to use a little bit each time on your lips. As I haven't gone through a full tin yet, I have no idea how long they generally last but I won't be using it all of the time so I can imagine mine to last quite a long time. The colour of the tint is a lovely, girly pink both inside the tin and on your lips. I think it's a very romantic colour.
When it comes to taste and flavours, this has sherbet, dried raspberries and icing sugar as well as oils from the Bubblegum lip scrub. I'm not sure what it is actually meant to taste like but to me it is very much like Cherryade. The taste is very sweet and sugary but I love it! My lips taste fantastic! I first smelt the lip tint and it smells exactly like Cherryade as well. The tint itself is very hard and waxy to begin with but it soon softens up as you use it. At the same time, on your lips, it softens and moisturises them which is a great bonus to get. I don't like to have to mess around with my lips with either lipstick or tint so this was a great product for me as it lasts a long time as well.
Overall, I love this lip tint and will happily buy (and stock up) on it every Christmas. Next year, I am going to Lush to buy everything in the Snow Fairy range!
Summary: Great lip tint!!
