Is it a lipstick, is it a lip balm, maybe it’s both? If we’re completely honest, it doesn’t really matter. Maybelline’s Green Edition Balmy Lip Blushes go on so smoothly and give us such great hydration we’re happy either way. As for the colours, from “Bonfire’s” burnt red to “Lightning’s” neutral rose and eight shades in between, we’re happy. Particularly when we swipe on a little berry-inspired “Midnight” across our lips.
Loaded with 93 per cent natural-origin ingredients, including super nourishing mango oil, each of the 10 pretty hues look and feel great. Like our natural lip colour has been enhanced with a layer of juicy pink, fuchsia, tangerine, or in our case, a mix of our favourite berries.
As part of the NYC-based brand’s environmentally friendly game plan, these Green Edition lippies are committed to only using formulas that contain a minimum of 70 per cent natural-origin ingredients. They contain zero animal-derived ingredients. They are clean, clean, clean, so no parabens and minerals, and each tube’s packaging is crafted from a mix of new and recycled materials.
Maybelline Green Edition Balmy Lip Blush in 10 shades, including “Midnight,” $12.99 each, available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
