Mica Beauty Fiesta Tinted Lip Balm Review


 Mica Beauty says their Tinted Lip Balm "conditions your lips without smudging while delivering sophisticated finish. Infused with Vitamin E, Mica Beauty's Tinted Lip Balm helps keep your lips soft, smooth, and protected." Mica Beauty offers ten shades - this review features Fiesta. These potted tinted balms contain 4 grams (.14 oz) and sell for $30 each. I received this product in an Ipsy Bag. Mica Beauty does not test on animals. This product was made in America.

 Mica Beauty's Tinted Lip Balms come in small, round, plastic pots. A screw on lid comes with an attached brush. The deluxe sample I received did not include the brush, which I prefer - its far less bulky that way. The Mica Beauty logo is printed on the cap, the product and shade name are printed on the side of the jar.
 The most important thing that needs to be mentioned about Mica Beauty's Tinted Lip Balm is that it isn't, by any means, a lip balm. In fact, its quite the opposite. Mica Beauty's Tinted 'Lip Balm' is a richly pigmented, almost lipstick-like product. I tend to apply this lip color by swiping it on with a finger - this product is difficult to pick up on a brush. This powerfully pigmented lip product is quite long lasting - I get up to four hours of wear, not counting the residual staining. This lip color does not transfer, even when freshly applied. This so-called balm is actually a little drying on the lips, it will accentuate any flakiness and lip lines. Mica Beauty's Tinted Lip Balm has no scent or flavor.
 Fiesta is a bold, cool toned, matte magenta. As I mentioned in the previous paragraph, this product is hella pigmented. Fiesta goes on entirely opaque in one quick swipe, its truly impressive.
Mica Beauty's Tinted Lip Balm is Fiesta is good, its very pigmented, long lasting, but slightly drying. Fiesta is such a dry magenta, certainly not a color for the meek. Is this tinted 'lip balm' worth thirty bucks? No. Cailyn Cosmetics offers the exact same product for $19. That's still pretty pricey, but at least its just a little more pocket friendly if you're interested in this product.
