Budget Beauty Find - 29 Lydia Mondavi Skincare, SPF 20 Wine Blot Lip Balm

 

 
If you'd like to "upgrade" your lip balm experience, I can think of nothing better right now than the new 29 Lydia Mondavi Skincare Wine Blot Lip Balm.
 
From it's elegant tube (which feels and looks much more like a luxe lipstick), to the beautiful packaging including a heavy case and 29 stamped on the cap, this is a great product.  And best of all it has a price that won't break the bank (around $9!).  The lip balm, like all of the products in the 29 line, is made with grape seed extracts, which act as natural anti-oxidants. 
 
The dark wine colored center of the balm contains the grape seed-derived ingredients in the formula.  The balm was smooth and had a nice bit of slickness to it (but not greasy!).  I was very impressed by how quickly it softly melted into my lips - and made them soft, plump and smooth.  It has a fresh, citrus/berry - like scent, which dissipated quickly, and it applied clear with no tint/color. 
 
The finish once it absorbed was semi-shiny, but not overly glossy.  I loved using this as a base under my more matte lipsticks, and also because it has a built in SPF of 20, I felt good about using this when I wanted a more natural lip on the weekends, at the beach, etc.
 
This is such a lovely product at a great price!  Stay tuned for another product  I fell in love with from the 29 line that I'll be sharing with you shortly.  In the meantime, head over to Target or Target.com and pick this little gem up.  - RLB
