Miners Tin o' Tints

Morning all,

Long-time no see!! My fault I've been super busy but I'm going to make more of an effort with my blog as I have a lot more scattered days off this summer using up my leave.

Anyhoo, today I'm blogging about the little beauties known as ‘Tin o Tints’ a lovely combination of lip balm and lip stain, or as Miners say “tint n care”.

The two I have are Watermelon and the New Mango variety. Now I have to say these smell Divine, the Watermelon smells of … as you guessed it, watermelon! A very true to real smell, so fresh. My favourite is the Mango, oh the Mango! This smells so good I could eat it (gross in reality), I eat fresh Mango all the time and I can confirm it smells of that.

So smell aside, I am very impressed with these. I've seen this concept before i.e. the Soap and Glory one in Peach where they do not leave much colour, well these truly do. They give a lovely wash of colour and not too sheer at all. They are not as thick as say a Revlon Lip Butter, but pack a similar punch in the colour stakes, just with a smooth balm finish.

You can pick these up from the Miners website for £2.99, which I think is a really good price for these.

Have any of you tried these? What’s your thoughts on tinted balms?
