Review: Ophelia's Apothecary Tangerine Tango Tinted Lip Balm Treatment

I purchased this while they had their sale on the 8th, and received it today. Out of the three times I've purchased from them I received this the quickest. The composition of the of the balm seems to be good as it is moisturizing. I also like the small tube it comes it as well as the ones their scrubs come in. I do wish that this tinted balm lived up to it's name. I was excited to try something different color wise. I honestly can't see any color on my lips when applied. I thought maybe it was the fact that I have very pigmented lips so I swatched it on my hand. It was like a normal balm and left no color behind on my hand.

The break down is I like the packaging, the ingredients, and the concept. I was very disappointed in the fact that this is in no way (in my opinion) a tinted lip balm. For me it is just a regulat lip balm.

Unfortunately this turns me away from every purchasing a tinted lip balm from Ophlelia's Apothecary again. I think the only think I honestly like so far from them is their body/lip scrubs, and balms.

How I "conceal" my red undertones

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

I'm usually super pale with red undertones. I guess you'd call them "pink", but anyways... I've noticed that combining primers such as.. MUFE in Yellow, and Miracle Skin Transformation in Light (for those of you who shop at Sephora) is helps to cut the redness better than using a green color correcting primer. For those of you who enjoy MAC products their Prep + Prime  highliter in Light Boost, and their regular Prep + Prime face primer work just about the same at cutting the visibility of the redness. For those of you on a budget Revlon's Photo Ready color corrector primer works well also. It's not as good as the Sephora or MAC combinations, but still help to reduce the visibility of redness.

Just something I came across recenly while being bored, and tired of always worrying about my little undertones showing through.
