Honeybee Gardens’ Tinted Lip Balms have arrived!!! 🙌🙌🙌 I’m so, so excited to share these lip swatches with you of the two (out of 5) shades I currently have! I actually borrowed Cherry Crush from my mother in order to do this lip swatch for you 😊! A hint as to how I feel about these lippies: I’d love to own all of them one day! And at that price-point ($7.99 each!) you CAN own all of them for less than what you would pay for ONE Lip Serum from Fitglow 😂.
Tinted Lip Balm Love
Tinted lip balms are the best of both worlds, providing the moisture and comfort we crave for our bare lips, while also adding a hint or pop of color to your pout! Double duty beauty at its best! 😊👌 That’s why I always say that tinted lip balms are one of my few can’t-imagine-life-without-it items, both skincare and makeup-wise! I’m one of those people who feel utterly naked without anything on my lips and the older I get, the less pigment my natural lips have…. So, that “tint” in tinted lip balm can be pure magic!
Now, not all tinted lip balms are perfection, though… I’ve tried dozens upon dozens of brands. Some I’ve loved, most are simply “okay”, & others I’ve downright hated 😅.. It can be hard to find the right balance between pigment and the ingredients needed to form that glorious balmy texture of a regular lip balm. I’m not a big fan of “thin” lip balms or lip tint formulas that just sort of slide around on the lips or immediately absorb into my lips, leaving behind an odd residue of mica/mineral pigments… I’m still trying to decide how I feel about this whole “lip oil” trend that’s going on right now 😂 for all of the reasons stated above. I just LOVE a good, thick lip balm that’s like wearing my favorite cozy sweater, but in lip-balm form!
All this to say, I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to my beloved tinted lip balms 😅 and I have high expectations, no matter the price point. Luckily, everything at Honeybee Gardens is as affordable as possible, when it comes to natural, vegan, gluten-free, & Dye-free options! So, you can’t go wrong by at least giving the line a go! I did receive Nudie Patootie as PR, however, that will never compromise my true thoughts on a product. I’ve always been very firm in my opinions!
While I wouldn’t go so far as to say that these tinted lip balms are perfection…. They are pretty darn close! First off, the packaging is adorable!! I love the little lotus inspired mandala on the front that matches the color inside the tube 😍. And the packaging keeps the balm safely secured in my bag, which is a big plus! The texture is what you would expect from a typical balmy lip balm and has versatility depending on how many swipes you apply. You can do a light wash with one or two swipes OR you can quickly build to a super balmy, pigmented lip tint that really hugs the lips and provides a barrier to the elements. This balm does not absorb into the lips, like others can; it stays on the surface, providing the moisture my lips crave throughout the day 👍. At the end of the day, my lips feel nourished & happy! I’d love to see a clear nighttime balm offered with maybe some lavender essential oil?? 😏😊
Cherry Crush: is a gorgeous, pigmented cherry-red with burnished warm undertones to spice it up a bit😍! Cherry Crush is scented with a natural Cherry flavor, which I thought I wouldn’t be a fan of, but it’s actually refreshing and subtle, so it fades quickly & doesn’t interfere with eating or drinking other flavored things 👌. Cherry Crush is surprisingly pigmented for a tinted lip balm, but you do have the versatility of having a lighter wash of pigment with one or two swipes, vs full-on pigment that you see in my lip swatch after I did multiple passes. I like a lot of lip balm, so I usually tend to really slather it on! 😅

Nudie Patootie: is a unique warm, bronze with gold micro-shimmer and it is completely scent-free! I love Nudie Patootie on its own or paired with other lip shades. It’s also a great shade to keep in your bag to have on hand when a lipstick shade wears off, leaving a bit of a stain, because Nudie Patootie just revives my lips with added color and moisture!
