Are you looking for moisture, sun protection, and just a hint of natural color for your lips? 

If so, head down to your local drugstore to give L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral ($7.95) a try.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral is smooth, non-sticky, and leaves your lips feeling moisturized long after you take it off. Plus, the light glossy texture gives a nice dose of shine for pretty, low-key lips.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral has SPF 15 to protect your lips from sun damage. Lips definitely show age, but many lip balms leave out SPF. I tend to rate products more highly that remember this very important ingredient.

The sleek gold packaging of L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral looks so chic and fancy. I don't buy products just for the packaging, but attractive design is always a nice bonus! L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral also has a mild vanilla scent with a hint of sweet fruitiness.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral has a coral-pink tint, but the formula is super sheer. I find that it deepens my natural lip color by about half a notch. 

So how does this product compare to the crazy-popular Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters?

While the two products are similar, they are not identical. L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral is much more sheer and less pigmented. Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters do not include sun protection. The starting price of L'Oreal Colour Riche Balms is a dollar or so higher, but both products are often on sale. 

I think that both the L'Oreal Colour Riche Balms and Revlon Lip Butters are great products. If you prefer more pigmentation, I think that Revlon Lip Butters are a better option. But if you're looking for a very sheer, natural-looking balm with sun protection, L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral will be perfect for you.
