Beauty Moment- Estee Lauder Tender Lip Balm

I was sent a tube of Tender Lip Balm in Tender Plum (03) to review, and I gotta say- love it! Estee Lauder is one of the very few makeup counters at which I've never sat down and had a consultation. I will admit to bearing a bias against the sales clerks for their grandmotherly blue smocks. This bias has apparently kept me from experiencing, if nothing else, some fantastic lip balm.

The Tender line is a balm/gloss hybrid, focusing on keeping your lips soft, smooth, and only faintly colored. The 6-shade collection (ranging from caramel to peach, with a few pinks and a clear in there for good measure) features an SPF of 15 and tastes so good. So. Good. Even if you usually hate lip balm that has a discernable scent/taste- give this a try. It's light and juicy. The tube itself is adorable; the size of an index finger, which makes for great portability. (The tube, not an index finger).

Estee claims the balm improves moisturization by 28% and reduces flaking by 34%. Whether it does or doesn't, I truly don't care. It looks good, it tastes good, it feels good - the trifecta of goodness. For $14, snag a tube for yourself wherever Estee Lauder is sold.
