Lush Lips

Hi everyone. I'm here in the beautiful valley of Bhurban surrounded by snow! I think winter is a magical time to visit this place.
 I brought three of my favorite lush lip products with me, and thought I'll review these for all you lush heads out there.

I know you're probably tired of  me raving about this brand in every lush post, but I loove lush. I really do. Have loved it since I was introduced to it a million years ago when my mom's friend brought some of their hand made soaps for me. It was love at first sniff. They weren't even that well known back then and were only located in the UK . I have been a loyal customer for years and years now, and for a very good reason. Their products really deliver what they say.
LUSH: When were were inventing our lip balms, we wanted to make sure they all tasted fabulous (they are meant for lips after all), so Simon Constantine and Helen Ambrosen volunteered to taste them all just to be sure (but not on each other).
 There are more to LUSH Lip Balms than flavor; some are for shine, some are for softness and some will restore sore lips to their natural state of beauty. Choose one or choose a few. Most handbags have space for a selection.


Although easy to carry around, I'm really not a fan of tin packaging where you have to dip your finger in each time to grab product. Don't get deceived by it's size, this little tin really does go a long way.
HONEY TRAP LIP BALM $6.95
This has got to be my favorite. I cannot recommend this enough, especially for anyone living in a cold dry climate. It is their most sold lip product and gosh it is addictive! I cannot stop reapplying it every opportunity I get. Very smooth and not at all waxy. It has oat milk, almond oil, beesewax, olive oil, honey, peppermint and white chocolate. Smells absoulutely yummy. White chocolate with a drzzling of honey and peppermint candycane. The scent is quite similar to their MANGE TOO massage bar.
Goes on clear.

WHIPSTICK LIP BALM $6.95
This is a must for anyone who'se a fan of milk chocolate oranges. I'm emphisizing on the scents of these lip product because the scents are very strong in all of 'em. So if you dislike scented lip products, or are annoyed with any of the notes mentioned, then please steer clear of these as most of them are heavily scented and you will end up smelling it the whole time you have it on your lips. This is supposed to be great for people allergic to lanolin or coca butter as it contains none. Consists of wheatgerm and almond oils mixed in with chocolate vanilla absolute and orange oil. The only downside is that the texture is not as smooth as that of honey trap, and is a bit gritty because of all the natural ingredients accumulating together. It's exactly like putting on terry's chocolate orange on your lips.
Goes on clear.
IT STARTED WITH A KISS LIP TINT 8.95
This is not a lip balm, but a lip tint (kind of like a matte sheer lipstick) Again, a very gritty texture which melts away when applied. This lip tint contains fresh red apple infusion among other natural ingredients, and is said to be inspired by snow white :) This has a very strong delicious scent of white chocolate and cinnamon mixed in with apples. Having it on my lips almost makes me feel guilty of indulging in some rich sinful dessert :)  Leaves a natural looking pinkish red stain on the lips which can be built up. Can also be used as a subtle blush on the apples of your cheeks. As it's not a balm, the moisturizing factor is low, but wearing it over a lip balm solves that problem.
One swipe

three swipes

Gawwd! I'm sooo bad at swatching, why do I even bother. Below is a google swatch, so you can have a better idea.

Let's put on our woolies, and step outside for a stroll in beautiful Bhurban ....






As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.

Thank you God, for making the world so pretty to look at.

Have a beautiful day readers

The lip tint looks really soft and pretty.
So it didn't know where in the world bhurban was (I don't live in pak), therefore I googled, and its like such an enchanting place.
You pictures were so lovely and brought the winter magic to life.
Do take more pictures of places you visit, I love to see different places.
