Sofia Coppola was embracing the coquette aesthetic before there was a coquette aesthetic. The director and screenwriter is behind such iconic films as The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette. Now Coppola is upgrading Augustinus Bader's beloved lip balm by rolling out tinted versions.

Augustinus Bader x Sofia Coppola The Tinted Balm supplies a sheer wash of color that builds every time you swipe it on. Coppola reportedly found inspiration for the line from a discontinued lipstick she used to love. The new collection features a trio of stellar shades. Shade 1 is a sheer, deep pink, Shade 2 is a bright coral red and Shade 3 is a burnt, earthy plum.

So what makes this colorful lineup better than other tinted balms? The formula plumps as it nourishes resulting in softer, smoother lips. It's all thanks to the brand's proprietary blend of plant-based butters and oils, like shea butter, vitamin E and candelilla wax. Then there's TFC8 technology that moisturizes and protects from environmental stressors. "The Bader lip balm is one of my favourites so I was excited when Augustinus Bader agreed to collaborate on a tinted version," says Coppola. As if all that isn't enough, the tint will stick around for a long time. What more can you ask for?

The collection is officially a hit as all three hues are currently sold out. Which is pretty impressive since the collaboration just came out this past Thursday. Suffering from a severe case of FOMO? Relax. Augustinus Bader is planning on restocking soon. Head on over to the brand's website to sign up to get notified when the balms are back.
