Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balms – Slicker Than Your Average

Thought the whole lip-stick-lip-balm thang had been done? You aint seen nothing yet. The new Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balm from bareMinerals are slicker, glossier and more pigmented than your average tinted balm.

What’s different about Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balms? The clue’s in the title… they’re oil based. Making them decadent, rich, nourishing and lusciously glossy. The whole range encompasses 8 neutral to glossy shades, I’ve got Pink Passion* and Rose Passion*, but I’m already eyeing up Peach Passion, Plumbery Pop, Nude Passion... you get the jist!

Pink Pop Passion – A youthful pink. A real summer (and face) brightener.
Rose Passion  – a deep dusky blush shade.

Application 9/10

Super easy, smooth, slick application… and because they’re sheer, no need for a mirror.

Pigmentation 8/10

A sheer wash of vibrant colour that can easily be built up to more intense stain.


Melts into the lips for an effortlessly smooth feel. In no way sticky, tacky or even balmy and remains very hydrating.

Finish 8/10 

Enriched with Jojoba and sunflower oils, they provides a natural, high gloss finish that lasts.

Longevity 9/10 

Much more long-lasting than your average tinted lip balm! The wear time has blown me away and even when the shine does eventually fade it leaves behind a pretty stain of colour that lasts, and lasts.

Overall , it's a big thumbs up! I’m pleased to say they're not just another tinted lip balm. Decadent, nourishing and delivers luscious colour that looks as good as it feels. An easy wearing, low maintenance lipstick that lets you rock a bright pop of colour without being too in-yer-face. If you're a bit of a lipstick phobe... this is for you!

Available in the UK from June RRP £16... watch this space!
