With tinted Vaseline, who needs to splash out on lip gloss?

vaseline rosy lips What can I tell you about tinted Vaseline, aka Vaseline Rosy Lips?

  • Just like regular Vaseline, it makes a bargain lip balm.
  • In the tin, the Vaseline is a rather alarming shade of hot pink (it’s pretty toned down in this picture). You will be reassured to note that on your lips, the rosy shade is far more “delicate”.
  • A 20g tin costs just £1.69 from Boots.
  • Compare that to £13.50 for a pot of Benefit lip tint!
  • It’s glossy, rather than full on Juicy Tubes gloopy.
  • The balm includes rose and almond oil, which smells sweet.
  • I like the retro tin.
  • Also like regular Vaseline, this tinted version seems to last forever…

If it isn’t already a thrifty staple in your make-up bag, and you’re running out of lip balm, I recommend that you check this one out…

Tinted Vaseline sounds amazing! I don’t wear tinted lip color myself, but that is a very thrifty find. Is it available in the United States?

I must get it!! I am obsessed with budget lip gloss & lip stick. BTW for the US readers, there are also great lip finds at the 1$ store. Regards, Barb
