I rarely blog about things I’ve been sent these days, but I have to make an exception for the new, limited edition Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour in Mulberry.
I’m already a huge fan of the original Lanolips 101 Ointment and have about four tubes scattered around the house right now. I use it variously as a lip balm, cuticle treatment, eye cream, and I’ve even used it to restore an old, battered pair of shoes to their former glory.
Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour in Mulberry is a limited edition, coloured version of the 101 Ointment. Only 5000 have been made for sale worldwide.
The balm itself is very moisturising and incredibly comfortable to wear, and I love the caramel scent.
It looks very dark in the tube, but appears as a rosey-pink colour on my lips. My skin tone has aways had a habit of eating up colour, and I have noticed that this balm appears slightly darker on other bloggers (see AddToCart and MyFunnyValentine for evidence of this).
I find the colour lasts for about two hours and fades evenly. I love this look with some eye makeup and no base. I think it looks really fresh, modern, and summery. Moreover, the redness of the balm makes my blue eyes look even more blue!
Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour in Mulberry costs $13.95 for a single tube. However, it will also be available as part of the Lanolips Super Hydrating Gift Set, available for Christmas and only $24.95 for the whole set. I think I have to pick one of these sets up for myself! It contains a Lanolips 101 Ointment (always need more of those), a tube of the Rose Balm Intense for Very Dry Hands & Nails, and a Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour in Mulberry.
