Bought this on offer at my local drugstore. After getting the first tube, I had to go back for more as I absolutely loved it. I love the creamy, moisturising texture, and the range of shades is wonderful. I have this in scarlet, passion pink, soft touch, kiss and sweetheart. My least favourite of the five would probably have to be sweetheart, but only because I'm not a fan of shimmer, and would interchangeably use scarlet and soft touch on a day to day basis due to these shades being very natural and flattering for day time use. The only real downside is that the tube is small compared to regular lipsticks and you will find that one tube gets used up in next to no time.

I have one in Perfect Plum - it is very sheer, but gives a nice tint. I like the softness and the smell. Need to reapply quite often though - i have no idea how others can say that it lasts "several hours". I work in an office that has very dry air and i need to reapply quite often. Not that I mind :)

I have this in shade 37 Soft Touch and I have to say, you can't go wrong with this product. You just have to find the shade that suits you. It's creamy, highly pigmented and glossy, but not too much. It doesn't have any taste but smells like vanilla. I can't say it's very moisturizing, but it's not drying either. Stays on for a few hours. I really recommend this product.
UPDATE: I need to correct the information that this lip balm isn't drying. When I use this daily, it actually does make my lips very dry. My friend stopped using this product because of the same reason. I won't be using this very often from now on.

I love this product. I have the color 31 Passion Pink.
I like the fact that it is a lip balm that gives lots and lots of color.
And it even looks good on when you have dry lips. I would definitely recommend this product.

i bought the colour 40 irony on sale for $7. i aboslutely LOVE this colour and texture of this lipstick. its a suttle shear coral pink colour, and i feel like it looks great on my medium skin tone. It does not make your lips chaped or outlines the creases, which i love. although i feel like this product needs constant application for the colour to stay or show. Overall i would purchase this product again. i have been looking for it for a couple of months, and im not so sure if its discontinued.

I bought two colors - 41 Kiss and 40 Irony. I love that Kiss is a opaque, deep red and leaves a nice glossy finish. Irony is a lot more sheer, and it leaves my lips a nice, glossy coral color - great for everyday looks. The lip balms are very moisturizing and they feel smooth on the lips. Great buy from the drugstore. Four lippies because staying power isn't the best, but I'll definitely buy more shades!
Oh yeah, the lip balms do melt if left in a hot place.

I have this product in 4 colours. I have it in scarlet, sweetheart, angel and kiss. Scarlet, angel and sweetheart are all very sheer shades of pink and kiss is a very opaque red. All of these lipbalms are VERY glossy and have a lot of very fine shimmer. There is no need to apply gloss on top of it - in fact, additional gloss would be overkill! They are extremely creamy which feels wonderful on the lips but it is borderline too creamy. I feel as though it will melt off in the summer time. In terms of the longevity, it colour last for quite a long time (couple hours or so) however, the glossy effect diminishes a lot sooner. These lipbalms are decently hydrating (better than Blistex - which is what I was using before this). One con is that the product gets used up quite quickly. There is also quite a bit less product in this tube than a regular lipstick ( I think about 1/2). These lipbalms also have a wonderful taste and smell. I also find the packaging very beautiful. They come in a gunmetal coloured case with writing in black - very sleek packaging.

FINAL THOUGHTS: I would repurchase this if I was able to find more at $3.99. If you look on the GOSH website, they are for around $13 and originally in my drugstore they were listed as $18. This is a wonderful product that I feel like any person would enjoy. Given the price I got it at, I'm quite excited about this product!
