NEW From Pixi: Shea Butter LipBalms

With the wind, rain and snow battling across the country right now, it’s more important than ever to keep out lips hydrated and luscious. Although little pots can provide a hit of moisture, they’re not exactly glove or on-the-train-appropriate; sticks of balm make lip maintenance much easier, and these new little balms from Pixi even add a touch of colour. Infused with shea butter to provide a smooth and nourishing application experience, the balms are comfortable to wear and glide onto the lips with ease. The touch of colour in the balm is relatively subtle, providing a tint to the lip rather than a full-on lipstick effect, ensuring these are great for use all day every day.

Unlike a lot of tinted balms, which compromise on moisture to inject the
colour, these are still extremely nourishing and don’t feel any
different from a non-tinted balm. There’s no grittiness or drag on the lips when you apply, with lips feeling comfortable until the balm wears off. I love the little tubes that remind me of Parisian macaroon shop Laduree too; the packaging is great quality and contains a little safety click to ensure the cap is secure and will protect your balm. The two colours I have provide a bright pink and berry shade, but there will also be a subtle orange and lots of nudes to choose from when these launch in a few weeks. These are fab little finds and great for weather like this, when you need a colour hit but just can’t face putting on a full lipstick look.

The new Pixi lipbalms are available from the end of February, online and in their boutiques, priced £8.00 each.
