A favorite summer beverage becomes a year-round lip and cheek tint.
If you’ve ever been to an East Coast state, you may have come across birch beer. Creamy and foamy like root beer but with a distinctive, wintergreen-like flavor, birch beer is a refreshing summertime classic soda around these parts. Like cream soda, it comes in many colors, but the most iconic is dark brick red. I knew way back when I started Molly Rose Balms in 2013 that I wanted a birch beer-themed product, though originally it was to be a lip scrub. It didn’t take long for me to decide that it should instead be my very first lip tint.
Birch Beer Lip & Cheek Tint is just what you’d expect: a gorgeous brick-red tint, perfect for deep lip color or sheered-out cheeks, made from the rich and moisturizing Molly Rose formula and scented with real organic birch oil. It’s definitely a color that looks different in different lighting. You’ll see in the main photo how it looks like a cool red, but in the photo where I’m wearing it, it looks corally-orange. I find that it usually falls somewhere in the middle. Like with the rest of my lip and cheeks tints, I find that I get the most even and opaque coverage when I warm the tube in my hand or packet for a couple of minutes before application.
Next week will be the Product Profile for September’s Flavor of the Month, but in the meantime, you have less than a week to order Tropicolada Lip Balm! Don’t wait!
