I recently shared with you a great pick from the new Mara Hoffman for Sephora Collection, and now I have another one you'll love.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Mara Hoffman for Sephora Collection: Kaleidescape Tinted Lip Balm is one of my all time favorite lip balms. It has the texture of a creamy, hydrating lipstick, with a sheer, berry tint that makes lips too healthy and fresh.
Like Mara Hoffman for Sephora Collection: Kaleidescape Lip Gloss Set, this lip balm formula also contains fair trade shea butter and coconut oil as well as manuka honey, coconut oil, shea butter, sunflower oil, and castor oil, which are all organically sourced.
If you have chronically dry lips, or just like a natural look that will hydrate all day, SEPHORA COLLECTION Mara Hoffman for Sephora Collection: Kaleidescape Tinted Lip Balm is the perfect choice.
The berry shade is a berry/plum with a touch of brown, so it really works for all skin tones. It's meant to be a sheer wash of color, but I found I could layer it fora bolder look or just a add a light swipe for a "your lips but better" effect which brightened up my entire face.
The lip balm felt soft, soothing and creamy going on and my lips never dried out during the day. While not meant to be a long lasting color, I did find with a heavier application I could get a stain effect for several hours, even after eating/drinking. Reapplying was a joy because it felt so good and smells so nice (it's a slightly sweet honey scent). Note: The balm bullet is on the soft side, so take care how hard you press down on your lips to avoid breakage.
The packaging, as with the entire Mara Hoffman for Sephora Collection: Kaleidescape line is so pretty and colorful. P.S. I plan on stocking up on more! :) - RLB
