I was excited for the launch of Vaseline's latest limited edition lip balm, Paint The Town. A lip balm with the promise of hydration and a hint of colour...? I'm in. I had no idea when it was launched however and was pleasantly surprised to see it nestled in amongst the offers by the till in my local Superdrug.
I'm not going to lie and say that having tried this out that I'm absolutely wild about this Vaseline edition. In fact I'm a little disappointed and the how sheer the red 'tint' of this actually is. I had imagined, from looking at the colour of the product in the tin, that there would be a little more colour pay off but believe me when I say that the swatch on my hand above took a lot of building. To be honest, it was also pointless me showing you a swatch of Paint The Town on my lips because I didn't see much colour difference between wearing this and not.
However I absolutely adore the packaging of this Vaseline. It's the standard sized tin from what I can tell, and I love how the lid encompasses dripping red paint that forms the silhouette of a city skyline, so chic. It makes you look twice I think, on first glance you either see dripping paint, or the skyline (I love little mind tricks like this!).
So all in all, a nice little limited edition Vaseline to add to the collection if you're like me and feel the need to own every Vaseline under the sun. I'm not so much a fan of its practicality but this little tin looks nice on my bedside table...!
Are you going to pick this up? What's your favourite lip balm?
