I workout twice a day as I’m super passionate about fitness, and I love how the lip tint lasts through my workouts.
It also hydrates and cools upon application, which makes your lips feel nice after a long run or weightlifting session! In addition to being cruelty-free, e.l.f. Cosmetics products are also vegan. What’s nice is the lip tint comes in several different colors. The affordable price point also makes it an attractive option!
