Literary Lip Balms

Vampire Slayer Eco Lip Tint


An edgy blend of pure and wicked; sweet vanilla with a swirl of spicy cardamom.

The story: Cheerleader by day, slayer by night. Buffy Summers is a character that defies conventionThe scent reflects its young graveyard-patrolling heroine with a base of sweet vanilla balanced against warm, earthy notes of cardamom and clove.

The product: A silky, tinted lip balm made with vegan wax and moisturising butters. Keeps your lips soft and gives a sheer hint of red colour suitable for all skin tones. The colour is a warm, orange-y red that can also work as a cheek tint. Note: all our lip tints are the same colour.

The tube is made from recycled cardboard and plant glue, and is 100% compostable. To use, gently push on the bottom to bring out the content. Do not push out all the way; we recommend only enough to apply so that you do not have to push the content back after use.

Vampires will tremble when you walk past them

This is my second time buying this lip tint and it will not be my last. I get a bit uncomfortable when wearing normal lipstick because it’s usually quite dry and thick but this lip tint is so moisturising and easy to wear! It gives a pop of colour that’s still pretty subtle and it makes me feel more confident in it.

The first tint I had, I kept in the bathroom and the heat change with the steam didn’t get on well with the balm texture so make sure you store your tint somewhere it will be safe from steam - I keep mine at my work desk now so when I pop into meetings I can just pop some on and I’m golden! I will buy this tint forever I swear!

Robin Degan
Just WOW!

I cannot being to describe how much I love this product! The smell is AMAZING, it moisturizes my lips just as well as the lip balms, and the color is absolutely phenomenal! I normally don't wear much make-up (mascara only), so wearing lip stick is really out of the question, because it just doesn't look great for a natural look. That is so not the case with this lip tint! I can assure you that it looks amazing with a very minimalistic, natural look. Exactly what I have been looking for for ages!

Karen Pickering
Love this lip balm

The colour is more noticeable than most tinted lip balms I've tried and it smells lovely. It also arrived beautifully packaged. Very happy with my purchase!

Kat Haines
Beautiful lip tint

I love this product, its so beautiful in colour, which gives a 'just bitten' ;) tint to the lips. Its soft and nourishing a good alternative to a full on lipstick. I would describe the scent as sweet and lightly spiced which is lovely!
The compostable packaging is to die for and something I really for in a product so this is an added bonus for me.

Emily Sanderson
I’ve never known a lip tint to care to be so moisturising.

This product is incredible! I have never known a lip tint to be so moisturising. It really cares for your skin and the spice gives it this really cool nip that gives you some serious Vampire Slayer vibes. The owner is amazingly lovely and I love the shop’s eco friendly ethos. 100% will shop again.
