The list of things Sonia Kashuk’s new Moisture Luxe Tinted Lip Balms have going for ‘em reads like a laundry list of travel makeup awesomeness.
- Sleek presentation
- They’re pretty affordable at $8.99 each
- They come in four sheer, universally flattering shades — Hint of Coral, Hint of Pink, Hint of Red and Hint of Berry
- The lightweight formula
- They’re unburdened by scents or flavors
- SPF 15
- Infused with aÃ§aÃ oil, essential fatty acids, cherry extract for antioxidant protection and safflower seed oil to nourish lips
I always worry about losing my (luggage, mind) makeup bag when I travel, and Sonia regularly releases such great stuff at good prices that I figured I’d bring one of these along with me on my next trip.
Except there’s one problem with that…
I didn’t find much.
After hopping between Hint of Coral and Hint of Pink since Monday of this week, my lips are drier than the Sahara! Flaky and just so, so dry.
Hmm… I think I’ll stick to Burt’s Bees faboo $7 Tinted Lip Balms as my travel balms o’ choice. For now at least.

“So here I go again on my own…! Going down the only road I’ve ever known!! Like a tabby I was born to walk alone…”
Guess who woke up singing Whitesnake this morning.
It’s ’cause I watched The Fighter with Christian Bale and Marky Mark on TV last night.
Gotta love rooting for underdogs, am I right? That grand finale when the protagonist comes from behind to beat the odds (BOOM POW!), embracing the thrill of victory and avoiding the agony of defeat (after experiencing the agony of defeat at least once earlier in the film, of course).
It makes me want to do some push-ups or something. I don’t know, kick some @ss, haha!
I was not very athletic growing up, but I wish I’d been. I was tiny and shy. Did you (or do you now?) play any sports or do any athletic things?
I run on my treadmill…but I don’t think that counts (and it’s more for my mental health).
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Have a great hump day.
