It's no secret I adore luxe lip balms. The new Baume In Love from Lancome's French Riviera Summer collection have my attention right now. I hadn't explored the first releases of these and now there are new shades.
Setting aside the balm itself, I am totally in love with the packaging. No plastic here, they are heavy silver tubes with Lancome embossed across the bottom circle. Very elegant and chic, far more than we usually see for a balm or well frankly a lot of lip packaging these days. Putting on your lip balm becomes just a little more glam with packaging like this and I freely admit to being a sucker for that.
|Peche Pout, O'Honey,Berry Crush, Very Cherry|
Baume In Love are very sheer with the darker shades having more color than the lighter. Peche Pout is a barely there shade giving just a hint of color. O'Honey has a bit of pink to it as does the red shade, Very Cherry.
These are very creamy and moisturizing with shea butter in them but feel light on. They do leave a sheen on lips as well as a light stain, but there is no heavy shine or shimmer.
Balms like this are great for those who like a lighter look , or as a topping over a deeper shade, something I think I'll be doing with Peche Pout a lot. For Summer, they are an easy , no fuss, swipe on and go lip product .
Lancome Baume In Love are $ 26
