Skinfood rose essence tinted lip balm #2 review & swatches

I have a tinted lip balm addiction, and today I bring you swatches and a review of one of my favorite affordable options. The Skinfood rose essence lip balm comes in two variants - #1 is a clear treatment balm and #2 is tinted rosy pink. I bought mine for about $5 on Rose Rose Shop, but the price varies slightly on retailer and currency conversion.

I like this product for natural makeup looks and weekends - tinted rosy pink balms add shine and definition to the lips without the intensity or coverage of a traditional lipstick.

Product details: 
  • 8g of product
  • Rose floral scent with rose oil
  • Metal screw top pot
  • Jelly texture similar to vaseline

I have a bare lip swatch on the left and a lip swatch with the rose essence balm on the right. You can really see the glossy finish and the coverage - I would describe it as a semi transparent jelly balm.

  • Beautiful rosy pink color
  • Glossy finish 
  • Pretty floral rose scent
  • Comfortable non sticky jelly texture
  •  I don't like applying tinted balms with my finger because it is messy
  • Jelly vaseline texture is an occlusive but not inherently hydrating 
Overall, I recommend this! You can expect longevity similar to a standard tinted lip balm with the shine of a gloss. The rosy pink color gives a beautiful natural flush that would be flattering on a lot of people.
