I received a sample of Benefit Posie Balm ($18) which is always welcome into my beauty life as I'm constantly on the prowl for a natural looking lip tint. It's described as "a poppy pink tinted lip balm that conditions and hydrates while giving the prettiest kiss of color." It contains mango butter and sodium hyaluronate which are powerhouses for hydration. The color is buildable and may be used on bare lips or over any lip color. As with all Benefit packaging, this balm is adorably housed in a mirror-like, pink-peach tube. The tint smells rosy and fresh. So, did Benefit Posie Balm benefit my lips as promised?
Verdict: I really liked putting this Posie Balm on my lips! It imparts a nice shine and sheer pop of color, very much in the "my lips but better" category. You don't need to use a mirror to apply it either. It's a very wearable wash of color, perfect for a day look. It did not dry out my lips and was very moisturizing with wear. It's a nice complement to any beauty look as it's so versatile. There is no lip drama with it though, therefore, if you are looking to make your lips pop or shock, you may want to keep it movin'. Posie Balm feels so nice, I'm gonna rename it Cozy Balm! (...or not). For info/purchase, head to sephora.com or ulta.com
