Summer sheer for lips and cheeks: Soap & Paper Lip Butter Tint Set

Summer is here and it is BLAZING hot in Michigan…almost 100 degrees every day for the past week! I don’t want to put lots of makeup on but I still want a little color so I am reaching for Soap & Paper Factory Lip Butters. These pots of buttery goodness not only give lips a fabulous matte tint, they also work like a charm on cheeks too, giving them the perfect pop of color for a summer glow (well, two out of the three do, anyway)!
The Lip Butters can be bought separately for $12 each, or they are available together as the Lip Butter Tint Set for $36.00. The packaging is quintessential Soap & Paper Factory – retro, vintage, fabulous. The lids unscrew to reveal sheer tinted lip butters that are made with wildcrafted ingredients. As always, no Soap & Paper products are tested on animals.

The Lip Butters have a matte finish yet they are hydrating and have a nice slip on the lips. On cheeks they feel slightly moist but not sticky. The ingredients include wildcrafted Calendula, Plantain, and Self-Heal, which is a herb that is especially wonderful for the lips and mouth. Self-Heal is why the lip butters have a bit of a minty taste to them.

Soap and Paper In the Nude Lip Butter

In the Nude is the only one that is strictly for lips. There is no color to speak of, so no reason to put it on your cheeks! It gives lips a nice hydrating slip and is a terrific all-around lip butter to have on hand.

Soap and Paper Rose Glow Lip Butter

Rose Glow is a very pretty, soft matte rose shade. As I mentioned, it’s been on fire hot here in Michigan, so my poor Rose Glow was weeping a bit only because it was 98 degrees when I was taking my pics. I love this as a lip shade and also as a cheek shade. Even though it’s a little moist on the cheeks, it gives a great glow and it doesn’t sink or pool into pores like a lot of cream or gel blushes do on me.

Soap and Paper Moulin Rouge Lip Butter

Moulin Rouge is the deepest color of the three, a beautiful soft berry tint. It rocks as both a lip tint and as a cheek tint. This is my favorite. I use a little for just a touch of color, or layer it for more drama – I find it to be very versatile and oh so pretty. Love!!
I really like the versatility of the Soap & Paper Lip Butters especially since I don’t wear much makeup in the summer. It’s fantastic to throw on a little lip tint and a little pop of cheek color without being afraid of my face melting into the sidewalk. Since the trio set costs the same as buying the lip butters separately, you can buy all three or just get what you need. My favorite is Moulin Rouge, followed by Rose Glow then In the Nude.  You can find Soap and Paper Factory on their website, at Amazon, and at lots of cool stores nationwide.  – Lisa

  4. Lacquerexpression says

    I really like these shades and I’m surprised that they have a matte finish.

  5. Ehmkay Nails says

    I find myself wearing minimal makeup in the summer too. It’s so hot! These look nice!

  6. These look nice! I love a lip product that tints and moisturizes at the same time! Great review!

  7. LittleNuclearReactor says

    Cute! I haven’t used a tint in forever, but these are lovely.

  8. The packaging is so cute!

  9. Jen Walker says

    I like the darker tints so they can also go on the cheeks for a pop of colour. I know I usually keep my makeup lighter when the mercury rises.

  10. I need these! I love tinted balms, and I have been wanting to try this brand!

  11. I love a tinted, moisturizing lip balm.

  12. These look like really nice, hydrating tints!

  13. I like the idea of a subtle tint, great review

  14. I can barely handle any makeup in the heat so these beautiful tints totally are up my alley!

  15. I can totally relate to the meme at the top of the post! My makeup melts off in the summer no matter what I do, so I kind of gave up trying ti find long-lasting products.

  16. I love berry-colored translucent balms like this!

  17. My Nail Polish Obsession says

    Totally all for the sheer tint in this heat! Actually all year round, I’m super makeup minimalist.

  18. Beverly Johnson says

    I need to try these! Nice and sheer looks perfect with a tan!

  19. These remind me of the Rosebud Salve that you can find at Sephora. They look super hydrating.
