It’s that time of the year again! You know? When the city streets are beautifully decorated with strings and strings of fairy lights, tinsel strewn carefully around town and Christmas trees peeping out from windows in all their bauble-dressed glory. This year, I took to LUSH cosmetics to get myself into the festive spirit with their Santa Baby lip tint and Santa’s lip scrub.
From my understanding, the Santa Baby Lip Tint ($9.95 AUD) and Santa’s Lip Scrub ($9.95 AUD)are limited edition and are only hanging around for Christmas. As are; Rose Jam Shower Gel, Snow Fairy Shower Gel and several other LUSH Christmas goodies.
Santa’s Lip Scrub
All you cola fans behold! Santa Baby Lip Tint and Santa’s Lip Scrub share the same fizzy cola scent (think: a coke from McDonald’s). The flavour made the edible lip scrub so irresistible, it’s hard not to eat it all up!
Unlike the colourlessness of the other Lush lip scrubs, Santa’s one has a slight red tint to it. It even has little edible hearts atop the red fizzy lip scrub!
Although I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, I really had a hard time not eating it all! I think I’m going to have to go for the less tasty lip scrubs if I want them to last :(.
Santa Baby Lip Tint
Lush describes this as a classic red loaded with softening Fair Trade butters and nourishing carrot oil for some lip TLC. As with most of their lip tints, it looks best applied to moisturised lips because the formula tends to bring attention to flaky/dry/chapped skin on lips.
It does go a bit crumbly after using (see image above), but that’s no big deal as it still goes on easy when you have moisturised lips. 😉
I was a little worried that this one was too similar to their It Started With A Kiss lip tint, but I went ahead and bought it anyways. I’ll have to do a comparison soon to see where they’re different!
Here’s what it looks like worn! It’s perfect for the silly season and throughout the year too… I love it.
As a lip balm addict who is slowly progressing her way towards being addicted to all lip things, the Santa Baby lip tint and Santa’s lip scrub are two things I know I’ll definitely be getting next time they’re on Lush’s shelves.
Go grab them before they’re all gone!
Merry Christmas all! x
