Dread Lipstick? *Me too!*

I am aware I am in a minority here in the blogosphere but I really do dread wearing Lipsticks. Hence you won't see very many Lipstick related posts here at all. If you do, then you really know that Lipstick is freaking brilliant as nothing else suits my dry, chapped lips better. 

Yes I exfoliate and take good care of them but lipsticks just fill in those not so glamorous cracks, most of them tend to be super drying on me, gather at the corners, bleed or feather - you name it. I much prefer lip glosses as they are totally like chalk and cheese aren't they?

For the middle option, my BFF are products like chubby sticks and tinted lip balms, one of which I am featuring today. I have tried Miners Tin o Tints in other shades before and have loved them. You can see my post on them here. These however are fresh shades for this season and I am so excited about them. 

Basically if I ever want a barbie pink lip or even a caramel nude for instance, this gives just the right amount of colour to the lips without adding much texture at all because they are so light. Good enough to complete a smokey eye or a classic pin up look without spending ages on lipsticks, especially if they wear out on you easily.

They are moisturising on the lips and have a deliciously juicy finish to them. As for pigmentation, its just a pop of colour, perfect for those who shy away from bold lips. 

Retailing for £2.99 each, I seriously think you should need no more convincing. I would suggest trying out the previously released shades too as I feel they were more pigmented.
