I don't know...something has changed in the Badger product line :(
I bought the Badger Baby balm and the tinted lip balm recently. Neither product was good. The Baby Balm had gone bad. Had a nasty smell to it, like rancid oils.
About the tinted lip-balm -
Well, these are super-pricey.
Secondly, they do not do the job of moisturizing the lips (balm??) Applied, it looks cakey and uneven.
Maybe I got a bad item, as the balm does not glide out and go back in the container easily.
If these balms are priced a lot less, I would buy again. Quality control seems to have deteriorated at W.S.Badger :(
A dual ended lip balm. I have this in the garnet/opal. The garnet is a pigmented berry color with a slight shimmer. Opal is almost colorless with shimmer. They smell like cocoa butter. The lip balm dried out my lips.
I don't care for this lip balm. First of all, it is very hard. It tugs on my lips as I apply it! Plus, the shimmer side is a bit *too* shimmery, which makes it look a little bumpy on my lips. It works if you layer it over a moisturizing lip balm--but I don't think I'll get it again, since it feels so dry.
The Packaging: A dual headed tube of product, one for color and the other for opal shine, a top coat of shimmery gloss.
The Product: The color of the product is mica-like and not milled as finely as I would like, suspended in a super moisturizing blend of oils. I have to say, it is one of the most moisturizing and healing lip products I have ever used. Whenever winter comes with chapped lips, I slap this stuff on and my lips are soft and smooth in a day or two. Wearing the lipcolor alone isn't advisable, since when the topcoat is added that the product really shines, literally. With the topcoat, is has a satiny finish that makes my lips look full and pouty without looking wet or goopy. The only con I can safely say is that the color is not as smooth as I would like, and the shimmer is not as finely milled as it could be.
The Price: Very very reasonable :)
This is by far the WORST tinted lip balm I have tried. It's very hard, which makes it really difficult to apply. Once I get it on my lips, it doesn't feel moisturizing at all and has a funky smell & taste. The worst part is that it makes my lips look chapped even when they aren't! I'm very disappointed considering all of the positive reviews, kinda makes you wonder... ;-\ continued >>
Love these! I have them all. They save my lips and make me pretty. The Garnet and Jasper are almost identical colors. I hope they make a bright pink next.
Really like this product! I also have it in Garnet. It's a beautiful color and very moisturizing. I like that there is a soft shine. The flavor/scent was not what I was expecting, but I got used to it and I don't dislike it. Like the other reviewer said, the taste is based on the cocoa butter. Would definitely buy again, kind of interested in trying another color, too!
This is a dual-ended colored lip balm stick. I have it in Garnet (which is actually pink, not red!).
One end is sheer colored lip balm, the other is an opal shimmer lip balm.
It smells and tastes divine (cocoa butter), lasts nicely for a sheer balm, and does a lovely job moisturizing your lips.
