And yet, more difficult at the same time, given this, for example. Now I gotta decide what are the circs under which to utilise this little beauty.
This is Blush Orchid, one of four new additions to Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm range. Best of both worlds, as far I can tell: a little bit of tint, a whole lot of balm. I like the clever tube in which it comes — I wonder if this is less packaging, or more? It’s certainly superior to the sort in which a tube is encased in plastic and glued to cardboard. Does anyone read all this stuff, though?
There’s even more text on the pink part of the barrel.
Whatevs! Really love it: it is emollient without being slippery, and the tint is just exactly right.
I forgot I had it on, and even though one of the pleasures in life, as far as I am concerned, is the ritual re-application of lip balm, I didn’t obsessively top this up… which probably means that my obsessive topping up derives from necessity, which means I do the thing I love to do because the product I adore is inferior?
Oh, dear, I feel an existential crisis coming on!
Petunia, Sweet Violet, and Caramel Daisy join Blush Orchid as 2013’s new hues.
