C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tints

C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tints($7.50) as the name suggests, are glossy lip tints that provide color, moisture and long-lasting freshness to breath with a 100 % minty flavor. They feel a little sticky and too glossy for a lip treatment so, I like to wear them more as glosses topped over a lipstick or alone. They smell very strongly of mint as there's 2% peppermint oil and the minty freshness does stay up to the claim, feeling minty in a very nice way, not in a lip plumping, tingly way.

"Plum Mint" is a sheer berry, "Pink mint" is a very sheer, pearly pink, almost transparent and "Bare Mint" is a pinkish brown that has a sheer, beautiful nude sheen. On my pigmented lips, all of them look like very sheer glosses with just a tint of color. If you are expecting a lot of pigment, you maybe disappointed. But, as moisturizing glosses, they perform amazingly well, stay on for about three hours and do not dry out my lips at all.

The squeeze tube is super convenient and there's a ton of product in there that will last you a very long time. I just wish they were a little less sticky!

Overall, they are very nice to have and make really good glosses over any lipstick or alone but, keep in mind that since most shades are very sheer, there's just a slight difference in the color and it won't make a huge difference if you have pigmented lips like me.

Available at all C.O Bigelow outlets, Bath and Body Works stores and online at,
