Remember my review of the Human Heart Nature Lip Balm in Peppermint? I mentioned that I didn't like how hard and waxy it was. It seems that HHN listened with their new Tinted Lip Balm (P75)! It glides on more easily and feels slightly less waxy, so yay for that. I also like the shade of Flame Tree since it's very rich - not far from legitimately being a sheer lipstick.
Texture and feel. The HHN Tinted Lip Balm in Flame Three is more emollient and easy to apply compared to its plain lip balm cousin. It still has that waxy feel (that I hope it would lose someday) but it's more bearable now.
Moisturizing properties. Helps moisturize with its essential oils. I like that it takes some time before it dries up.
Packaging. I like the packaging. The product is housed in a basic tube, but the color combination down to the fonts used in the semi-matte label is nicely done.
Shade selection. I love Flame Tree! It's a rich reddish shade that can pass for sheer lipstick. It's very pigmented. These tinted balms also comes in two other shades: Island Kiss (coral) and Pink Orchid (well, pink). I do believe all three are worth collecting!
Verdict. I like it a lot. I'll be keeping this within reach for lazy days when I just want a basic, fuss-free, and moisturizing color on my lips! I just wish that someday, HHN would make their balms thinner and less waxy for maximum comfort. Konti na lang and it's perfect already!
