This is my second attempt at writing this after my first review was lost in the WordPress ether 😦 sad as it was good and took me an hour! Hope I can do it justice this time round!!
I have totally fallen in love with this product!!! This is the Bitten Lip Tintx from For Goodness Grape. A US based company I found on Etsy who sell lip tints/balms/gloss and scrubs, also solid and perfume oil. The flavours include Oreo, Peach Coconut, Maple Bacon Donut and Chai Tea to name a few yum!!!!!!!
Etsy is a FAB place to find handmade goodies and is very good for finding Vegan, cruelty free products, the only downside is a vast majority of the shops are US based so not great for the old carbon footprint.
Lisa, who runs For Goodness Grape, was very helpful and the lip tint arrived incredibly quickly! The packaging was so girly and it felt like I’d received a present 🙂 The lip tint is a lovely blood-red colour and comes in a Chapstick style tube. It doesn’t have any smell so good for those lovelies that don’t do well with perfume! Using it is easy and I’ve not even needed a mirror. It leaves my lips with a lovely red splash of colour that feels like a lip balm and keeps my lips moisturised. Unlike lip stains this doesn’t dry out my lips and wears evenly so no ring of colour round my lips.
This has such a lovely girly, romantic feel to it and is practical for every day use as well as a night out. I went out with a girlfriend last week and wore it and only needed to re-apply a couple of times. My lips felt lovely all night and the colour was just gorgeous. The name is so apt as the colour really reminds me of pinched/bitten lips, similar to how women used to pinch their lips to bring the colour out in them. It also has a bit of a gothy vampire feel and one of the reasons I bought this one was because the name reminded me of romantic vampire films and novels! I will definitely be buying this again, in fact I’ll be placing an order for more products from For Goodness Grape very soon I love it that much!!!! My only issue will be which colours/flavours to choose!!!!
