eSpoir Tint and Lip Balm Duo - Girlish Peach review

After being slightly disappointed by the eSpoir Lip Color Essence, I was a bit reluctant in trying another eSpoir lip product. But since that is one of their lowest priced lip products, it is understandable that it is not that good. This eSpoir Tint & Lip Balm duo was more expensive, so let's see whether I liked it.

Packaging

It has the same dark blue and fuchsia letter print as the eSpoir Lip Color Essence. On the top, you can find the label with the name of the color. Out of the three colors, I choose the Girlish Peach color.

Middle part

In the middle part of the stick, they have added arrows telling you which end is the tint and which end is the lip balm. But it is pretty straight-forward and you don't really need a reminder after you have used it the first time.

Lip balm end


It has a very pretty pearly cap with very fine gold shimmers and you pull the cap off like that of a lipstick. The lip balm has the shape of a regular lipstick bullet.

Lip tint end

The lip tint container has a coral pink color, but the lip tint itself is a very bright, milky orange. It has a slightly slanted, brush applicator, which feels very comfortable on the lips.

Even though the lip balm bullet looked like one of a pale pink lipstick, it is actually a glossy, transparent lip balm. The lip tint looks very milky, bright orange right after application and dries up to a light orange with yellow tones.

eSpoir Tint and Lip Balm Duo - Girlish Peach applied on my lips

I first applied the lip tint and it had the cherry scent that most lip tints has. The lip tint actually made my lips look lighter and gave them a visible orange glow. The orange color of the lip tint melts with your natural lip color and creates your personal coral/peachy color that works well with your skin tone.

Like with most lip tints, my lips tend to look very dry afterwards and having the lip balm at the other end is very convenient. There is no way that you can forget to take it along as it is in the same stick as the lip tint.

The lip balm applies very smoothly and you don't feel it on your lips at all. The glossiness looks very natural. It has a very nice peach scent too. I wish they would sell this as a separate lip balm stick too. I don't use up lip tints that fast, but run out on lip balms very quickly. I blame it on my continuously, chapped lips. ^_^

Final opinion:


This eSpoir Tint & Lip Balm Duo didn't disappoint me at all. It gave my lips a really pretty, peachy color and the lip balm has become my favorite one. My lips remained moisturized for the whole day. It is also transparent, so I can use it over and under any lip product and I love the peach scent.

This product was the main reason why I didn't get one of the Etude House Dear Girls Tint & Lip Balm sticks. It already fulfilled all my needs (orange, moisturizing, and glossy), so I didn't need to look further. ^_^
