Augustinus Bader has partnered with award winning director Sofia Coppola on a collection of three new shades of The Tinted Balm, which feature the skincare pioneer’s proprietary TFC8® technology. 

The trio of balms come in shades of pink, coral and plum and are priced at £33 each in the UK. Coppola, known for her work on films such as Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette and most recently Priscilla, said he had been a long-time fan of the brand.

"The Bader lip balm is one of my favourites so I was excited when the brand agreed to collaborate on a tinted version. Shade 1 is based on a favorite sheer deep pink lipstick I hoarded after it was discontinued, that’s easy and adds a brightening, subtle tint. Shade 2 is a red coral I like for summer or at the beach, and Shade 3 is a burnt, earthy plum," Coppola explained.

The Tinted Balm enhances the lips with a sheer wash of colour that builds with each application. It nourishes, plumps and renews the lips and is formulated with a hydrating blend of plant-based butters and oils, including Shea butter, Vitamin E and Candelilla wax. It is powered by Augustinus Bader’s TFC8® technology, meaning that each application moisturises the lips and protects them from environmental stressors.

Since its launch the Augustinus Bader range has gained a cult following for its luxurious formulations containing TFC8®, which works by supporting the human body’s innate capacity to renew. The brand originally launched with two hero products, The Cream and The Rich Cream, but has since expanded to include a range of skincare essentials.

As well as Coppola, it has also collaborated with Victoria Beckham on a range of skincare, including priming moisturisers and a serum. Speaking of the latest partnership, CEO and Co-founder Charles Rosier said: “Augustinus Bader continues to grow its community of industry leaders and creatives who insist on integrity of ingredients, science-backed formulations, and proven results. Professor Bader was delighted to receive Sofia’s request to create a lip tint based on the AB balm she loved.”
