Is The Glamglow Poutmud Lip Tint Worth Paying £16 For?

When I headed to Crete I was surprised to stumble across a Sephora, I had no idea a little Greek island would have one but it did make me pretty happy. I didn’t actually buy much when I was there which was a shock to myself but I did pick up one of the Glamglow Poutmud Wet Lip Balm Tints in Love Scene because why not?! Firstly I had no idea that some stores in the UK stock the Glamglow range although most only seem to do the clear lip treatment as opposed to the tinted version which I bought. The lip balm worked out at the equivalent of £16 which is quite a lot for what it is but is it worth it?

The first thing I noticed about the lip-balm is that it’s whipped meaning that you don’t have to rub and push your finger into the pot to get enough product to put over your lips which is great because too many times I end up ruining lip balms due to putting my fingers through them. The Poutmud range is designed to be a moisture-rich lip balm designed to soften, hydrate and restore your lips, the general things a lip balm is designed to do. The Glamglow lip balm did exactly that and I could still feel it softly on my lips even a few hours later despite being in a hot country.

There’s plenty of softening ingredients included within it including Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, and Cocoa Butter but it’s the inclusion of Moroccan Mint Leaf which I loved as despite not loving scented products the slight air of mint was refreshing. I opted for the Love Scene colour which had a slight pink tone to it as I thought there would be more chance of me wearing a tinted lip balm than a clear one, and so far it’s working.

While the packaging looks pretty the ball-shaped design isn’t the most practical for carrying around as it can’t slip into a pocket within your bag quite as easily but I can forgive this factor as I almost always carry around a huge bag anyway.

Overall I do think this is worth the £16 price-tag as it is really hydrating, left my lips feeling so soft and the tints are a great hybrid product for those days when you want a bit of colour but don’t want a full blown lipstick on.

Would you ever consider paying this much for a lip balm?

  • I have actually never tried anything by Glam Glow, but this seems really nice. My lips are always so dry so this would be worth it if it works that well!

  • Melissa Chapman

    I am not much for spending on myself but those lip balms have such great ingredients and mint how nice. I need anew lip treatment for dry lips in the summer.

  • I’ve never spent that much on lip balm, unless it was tinted. Sounds like it’s a great choice though! I would totally buy that for my daughters for gifts.

  • I’ve never paid more than 4 bucks for a lip balm. They all seem to do the same job, except for the different flavors. These actually sounds like it might be worth it. Have to check them out later.

  • Marcie

    Minty lip balm sounds brilliant! I don’t think I’ve ever used whipped lip balm. My lips get so dry when traveling, so this sounds like it might be worth the investment.

  • I have been hearing so many great things. I personally have gotten the YSL lip balm before so I wouldn’t mind trying this for that price if I really want to.

  • Amanda Love

    If it works better than most of the lip balms than I suppose it’s definitely worth getting. I love that it’s reliable and it keeps your lips hydrated. The packaging is lovely too!

  • I’m usually a lip stain fan if I wear anything on my lips. Anything balm-like drives me absolutely nuts because I can’t kiss my kids without getting it all over their cheeks… so this may not be the best product for me. I love that has a pretty subtle tint though!

  • Kate Veggie Desserts

    It’s a lot for a lip balm, so thanks for the great review. I always need some form of lippy so it sounds really good as it’s so hydrating.

  • TheMummyToolbox

    I get really chapped lips, particularly in the winter as a runner so this is something I would consider

  • Carolyn

    I love mint and the smell is so rejuvinating to me. I’ll keep my eye out for this gloss.

  • I honestly don’t know if I would pay that much for a lip balm. There are so many great options available for much less. However, if it works better than many of those balms I might consider giving a try.

  • bloggingastrid

    Wow, that’s indeed a lot of money for a lip balm, so I’m so glad it’s worth it. I would love to try a tinted lip balm someday.

  • Yikes! I am glad that you liked it, that would be a plus in my book to have me shell out the cash for that!

  • Kara

    I don’t wear lipstick but do use lipbalms and this looks perfect for adding a hint of colour…..off to see if we can get it here

  • Lukeosaurus And Me

    It looks lovely and the packaging is beautiful, but I don’t think I could bring myself to spend that much money on what is just a lip balm! I’m addicted to lip balm so have loads and loads and I do know what you mean about some being worth the money more than others ! This is probably amazing but my boyfriend would kill me and I’d probably lose it within a week!

  • Rachel George

    I wouldn’t pay that much for it but I don’t use any make-up or have any difficulties with chapped lips but if it works for you, and you like it, then it is worthwhile.

  • Nayna Kanabar

    Its slot of money for a lip balm but sometimes if they do work and last longer than cheaper versions than its worth spending so much in the long run.

  • Reesa Lewandowski

    That is way too much for me to spend on lip balm, but I like the container it’s in! Thanks for your honest opinion.

  • Helen Clark

    It does seem a lot for a lip balm but if it works so well it does seem worth it. I love tinted lipbalms, sometimes you need a bit of colour but want to treat your lips at the same time.

  • Nikki

    I don’t know if I would pay that much for a lip balm personally, but considering the cost of some makeup, it actually seems about right for a high-quality product. I love that it’s whipped! So much easier to apply. It also sounds like it has some really beneficial ingredients!

  • Brittany Muddamalle

    I love that this is an honest review! I feel like most reviews are just about how perfect they are. Now I want to try this!

  • Jeanine @ sixtimemommy.com

    I love lip balm but I am not sure I’d spend that much on it…. if its really worth it I would probably once to try it out myself. Its got beautiful packaging!

  • I’ve never tried these lip balms. Personally I’m not at a stage in my life to use pricey lip balms because I have two little girls that love to “borrow” every pretty thing from my makeup counter regardless of where it’s placed. But I’d love to gift it to someone special.

  • The tinted colour is very pretty and I do like the shape. Plus I always have chapped lips so this could help me out! x

  • CourtneyLynne Storms

    Oooooo that color is just too chic!! I am one of those people who always needs something on their lips! Need to give this a try

  • The packaging is lovely, and overall I love products that can pull off double duty. I probably will put this on a wishlist instead of buying it myself. 😉
