I didn't have many opportunities to go out in public wearing this lip tint but I love it immensely! The colour is subtle but definitely visible and very pretty, the scent is spicy and lasts for long. The size of the balm is also huge so I think it is actually cheaper than buying 3 or 4 other lipsticks that are 10 times less good quality than this one. Doesn't feel too sticky or messy and the recyclable packaging is great.

Stoker would be proud!

Love the smell, the tint and packaging. The quality is there and it's genuinely just a cool product to have (like hey, check out my vampire slayer lippy ;-) ).
Very happy with it, thank you.

awesome products

The products are of amazing quality in gorgeous packaging. I was particularly fond of the handwritten note in incredible handwriting. Made it all the more special

Literally SLAYS.

I brought this as a gift for my mum, I grew up watching Buffy & we are big vampire nerds. She loves a tinted lip balm and one of her favourite herbal tea's is vanilla & cardamom which this smells exactly like. I highly recommend she loves the slight tint. It looks super classy.

it looks awesome!

Now that lockdown is easing I bought this and the Dirtyhands hand sanitizer because that's how Buffy would venture into this new world - with germ killer and killer lips!


I love the colour so much and it smells great. It's also really moisturising which is good as I get dry lips.

This is my new favourite product! Will definitely be repeat buying.

I'd never tried a lip tint before, but having loved LLP's normal lip balms, I decided to give this a go (it helps that I'm also a huge Buffy nerd). I have always had a pale complexion, and I'm often looking for ways to add a hint of colour without looking over 'done up' with a lipstick. In addition, as someone who has perpetually dry lips, lipstick often dries them out further. This lip tint has 100% filled that void. It's a lovely subtle colour, so moisturising, and lasts hours! It's become a new staple for me, I absolutely love it! I know I'm going to continue to rebuy this product for years to come and I'm just sad I didn't come across it sooner!

Feels great, looks great

Smells amazing. Gives a lovely natural tint to the lips and makes my lips feel really good too.
