Yves Rocher Vanilla Nourishing Lip Balm

I'm a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to bright shades, I just don't think I pull them off. This results in me having a ridiculous amount a lipsticks that never see the light of day which is a waste I know. That is until Yves Rocher Vanilla Nourishing Lip Balm stepped in. I've never seen this brand in Ireland and I actually picked this up in Barcelona last year. I think it was around the €4 mark, which for a pot of this size is a bargain. I also bought a peach perfume from this brand and after looking on their website recently they do have an amazing selection of products. I'm not too sure if they are a well known brand or not it remains to be seen. They do have the lipbalm in two other flavours online, raspberry and coconut. I saw the latter in Barcelona too but I instantly fell in love with the sweet scent of vanilla so I settled on this one.

Over the past few weeks I've been applying any old bright lipstick and popping a tiny bit of this balm on top.  I know that simple and it changes the appearance of the lipstick completely. There is a white hue off this balm so that's why it works so well in toning down the colour. You certainly won't look like you have ghost lips if you blend it in right. I've been using this with a few lipsticks so far and it's worked brilliantly. It hasn't just toned down the colour, it also leaves a nice glossy finish. I've also been using them over the darker  shades of Revlon Just Bitten Balm stains, to add that little bit more moisture to my lips. Not only can this be used over lipsticks but it can also be worn alone, it leaves my lips feeling so smooth and moisturised I love it. I really wish I had of picked up another while I was in Barcelona, I'll be devastated when I run out of this.

Does anyone else have a fear of vibrant lipsticks? How do you make them work?
