Just so WILD about Beauty!

Hello all!

No real excuse for the lack of post in the last month - just been super busy and lacking inspiration. But hey, I'm back again and going to review Wild about Beauty's Nutrilips lip balm.

I'm going to admit that when I heard about the brand, I wasn't that excited. The name 'Wild about Beauty' drew up images of cheap make up sets that older relatives used to buy me when I was just starting to get into make up as a teenager. However, after doing a bit more research around the brand and reading other reviews, I changed my mind. The company was founded by Louise Redknapp (whose cover of 'Stuck in the Middle with You' still gets me) and make-up artist Kim Jacob - all cosmetics are paraben-free and focus on everyday essentials with skin-friendly ingredients and beautiful neutral colours. It is actually a very grown up brand which the founders have really put some love and attention into.


Wild about Beauty Nutrilips lip balm (£14)

The nutrilips balm I've been using is in the shade Carmelia and is a gorgeous nude colour. It's a pinky-orangey-nude mix which appears a little bit darker than in the photo below. It's a perfect shade for everyday and gives lips a glossy, kissable finish. It also leaves lips feeling really nourished and, unlike cheaper lip balms, lasts for a good few hours before rubbing off completely. I have also been applying this balm before bed to allow it to work its magic overnight. This stuff really works and I would highly recommend it if you don't mind splashing out a little bit more money on lip balm once in a while!



Have you tried any new lip balms recently which you think deserve some recognition? Or have you tried any other products in the Wild about Beauty range? Do let me know in the comments!
