Vasanti Cosmetics Tinted Lip Balm

Vasanti Cosmetics is a Canadian-based cosmetics company I did not know too much about before receiving some items from them to try. I sure as heck was not prepared for this tinted lip balm. If you like the idea of a lip balm that is truly moisturizing and conditioning for your lips while also being a really gorgeous color (enough to pass as lipstick!), then these should definitely be on your radar. If you like lipstick textures like MAC Slimshine, you should also definitely check these out. The price is comparable to MAC as well– $15 each. The packaging is sleek, and hallelujah it’s a decent tinted lip balm in stick form! 

This lip balm is formulated with vitamin E, shea butter, mango seed butter, and olive oil all to make your lips feel super good. There is a light fragrance that to me (and a few other people I asked) smells like cucumber melon. It’s not so strong that it’ll knock your socks off, but it’s definitely there. It’s not too bad. I despise the watermelon scent of Maybelline Moisture Extreme lipsticks, but this isn’t like that at all. It smells much more cucumber-y to me, which makes it at least tolerable if not pleasant.

The beauty of this is just how much color you get. Many tinted lip balms are just like tinted moisturizers – just a teensy tint of color, not enough to really cover anything. Even with fairly pigmented lips this lip balm really could pass as a nice lipstick instead of a lip balm. Because it’s so moisturizing, you won’t get that annoying ring around your inner lips that happens when your lips get dry in a lip product (eww).

The color of tinted lip balm I got is Tahiti, which is described as “sheer pale pink with a touch of coral”. That touch of coral keeps this from heading into pale pink Lady Gaga lips territory that many ladies can’t pull off. Instead, this pink is a very flattering color that brightens up my whole complexion.

Enough yapping, here are some pictures!

Direct sunlight (yes I’m in the car– I took these en route to Thanksgiving dinner! Don’t worry, I wasn’t driving.) Gosh I look pale in the sun. I think I reflect the sun back at you. 
In the shade (ha see my reflection in my glasses? Classy. You can also see Mr. Boyfriend driving!)
