This is a $15 pot of tinted lip balm I got a while ago and forgot about, only to recently rediscover and totally fall in love with it. First off, the packaging: it's ADORABLE. And I'm not that into packaging. It's a sizeable white tin with screw top lid that has 5 cute-not-scary dinosaur heads on it (see pic). I know. Also, practically speaking, the tin is fully functioning, closes tightly, and is easy to use.I have it in Spilled Wine (sheer mulberry wine), and it comes in 2 other shades: Beet Jam (sheer red) & Melony Peony (sheer lavender-pink). Spilled Wine is the darkest shade (looks nearly black-red in the container) and goes on fairly sheer, but it does deposit color on my pigmented lips for sure. They end up with a juicy, flattering & natural berry tint. There is a pleasant, not too chemically scent & flavor. (Test first if you're sensitive.) It's dewy rather than glossy. I haven't tried the other shades.The formula is A+ though. The texture is not waxy at all—it kind of has a cushiony feel that seems to help it adhere to lips. I wouldn't say this balm stains lips or lasts a long time, BUT it lasts long ENOUGH for this type of product. Like I said, there is something about it that adheres comfortably to lips. It doesn't just disappear into thin air! It's moisturizing enough too. Easy to reapply. CUTE to reapply. I definitely recommend this. I wear it alone most often but it looks great over stains and as a topper for fading lipstick. There is a good amount of product that I feel justifies the price tag. Where has this been all my life?! Oh yeah. My lipstick drawer**disorganized cubby of satan's money-grubbing, instant-gratification minionsAlso, my daughter thinks this is the best thing since LOL dolls. It would make a cute gift for a young girl!

Hm like a lot of serum, this goes on nicely but gives a little sticky feeling which last for about 10 mins? I don't think it does much for my face. Unlike with the combined moisturiser and repair balm from this series which left my skin feeling bouncy 10 mins later, I don't see or feel any effects for this one. Hence, I guess I will pass on this!

Hmm so this is the recovery balm for weaken skin. It goes on really creamy like a conditioner for hair. But surprisingly it goes on the skin really fast. My skin looks lot brighter but we can only tell after awhile. Will update. For now. Find it too creamy. \Update: hmm my skin feels a lot softer 15 mins later! not sure if its this or the moisturiser from the same range but pretty amazing!

I am 35 year old East Asian with combination skin. This feels too heavy even for my rather mature skin. Nice scent though. It does get absorb fairly quickly so no overly sticky face after applying. I wish it was more light weight. I fear my skin will get an out break. Will update if I do! Update: hmm my skin feels a lot softer 15 mins later! not sure if its this or the balm from the same range but pretty amazing!

Ehh..okay product. Want to start off by saying that this probably won’t work for you if you have a darker complexion. The contour shade is a nice cool tone sheer powder which I lIke. The highlighter is pure glitter which I’m not a fan of and the blush is also way to sheer and too glittery. The packaging is nice an aesthetically pleasing for me but that’s it. I would not recommend or repurchase.
