Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Sheer Lip Tint

If you like beauty and skin care I am sure you have heard of and probably own the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream. I see it as one of those miracle creams that I reach for when I'm not sure what else to use but I mainly use it on burns, very dry skin and my lips. However, I have recently been trying out Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Sheer Lip Tint in the colour Blush.
One of the first things I noticed about this product is that it has SPF15 which is very important now that spring is on its way. The packaging isn't the greatest packaging but its quite fuss dress like most of Elizabeth Arden's range. I do wish that for £18.50 the packaging looked a little more expensive.

It is of course a Sheer Lip tint which I think is perfect to wear as an everyday product as it is moisturising but still adds a slight colour
My cousin kindly agreed to model the colour on her lips, as you can tell it doesn't add too much colour and isn't too glossy either.
Unlike the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour cream this doesn't have that awful strong smell, but it does still have quite a strong citrus smell which I do quite like.

This product comes in four different shades, Blush, Berry, Honey and Plum Blush is a pretty pink colour but I am sure one of the other colours would suit you if you are not a fan of pinks. If you find them a little too sheer they also work well with a lip liner underneath them. 

This isn’t quite as moisturising the original cream but it’s nice to have a similar formulation in a lipstick form. 

This product retails for £18.38 in Boots and department stores. 

What is your favourite lip balm?
