I recently purchased this lip balm in cherry. I was hoping it would give me a beautiful red tint to my lips, and it did! Not too sheer, but not over the top either. It's just right. Not like a lipstick or balm in my opinion. A perfect equilibrium. The only downsides are the fact that it tastes absolutely awful. Have you ever accidentally gotten sunscreen in your mouth? Well, that is what it tastes like. I'm going to assume because it has SPF 15 and has the same relative ingredients that a sunblock would. The cap is also a pain. It sometimes nicks the top of the stick and I have to wipe it off to keep it from getting on the tube or my hands/clothes. Other than that, I do like the color and the fact that it keeps my lips from getting burnt to a crisp in the hot summer sun.
I have the Watermelon Juicy Balm, and while there are a few things I like about it, it just isn't a hit for me. As far as moisturizing goes, I think it does a good job. I put it on one night when I had chapped lips, and when I woke up the next morning they were smooth again. I really love the sheer green color because it reminds me of Enid Coleslaw from Ghost World. :P I also adore the packaging because it's so chunky and quirky. Sadly though, the balm smells and tastes AWFUL to me. When I put it on, I get a really bad, "chemical-y" taste on my tongue. It smells gross and artificial, too. It's a shame because if it wasn't for the smell and taste, I think it would be a great product!
It smells horrible after some days using it something like chemicals, you can feel the smell in your throat, literally it makes me sick, I get stomachache every time I use it. I like the colours they look so natural but my lips are dryer than before. I am no picky with makeup specially with the cheap one but I cant handle this. Definitely I won't use them again. I bought the four colours!!! I don't want to use them anymore, my stomach wouldn't resist
I have this lip balm in Strawberry and Cherry. Overall they are great lip balms that look really nice and are perfect for everyday use. And they only cost $2.99 at 5 Below!
Strawberry- Smells really good. Looks like a nice light pink on lips. This one, like the cherry, tastes bad. The taste is probably because it is SPF 15, which I don't think is necessary. But it does look very pretty.
Cherry- Smells like cherry popsicles. It is sort of artificial, though. It looks very bright red, which is very nice. This balm is very smooth on my lips, and never dries up my skin.
The packaging definitely could have been improved. It was cute, but highly unpractical. Whenever you would put the clear casing on the balm in a rush, it would chip off the balm, wasting it. You have to be EXTREMELY careful.
Pros: Pretty color, smooth, feels good putting on, semi-moisturizing.
Cons: Thin and very wet- leaving my lips not totally mositurized, and has a really gross after taste in your mouth no matter the color/flavor you buy.
I have the watermelon one. I love it. Very moisturizing. My lips stay moist for about 2 hours without drink or food which is a whole lot better than the over hyped EOS lip balms.
I got this in cherry. Lovely sheer color. Classic cough syrup cherry flavor. Very soft, slightly waxy feel. But it doesnt last long and it transfers like nothing else. Guess thats why its cheap.
I picked up these in Cherry and Raspberry. I liked the scent ,size and amount of product. Didn't find them very moisturizing.Loved the Cherry color but after an hour or so I kept getting a bitter taste on my mouth. Happened with the Raspberry one too. I wanted to ignore this as I really loved how the Cherry looked on me but I just couldn't. Don't think would purchase any other flavors nor use the ones I bought.
there good lil lip balms .. there good to throw in your purse or keep in desk or what not . i have a ton of these two .. the only prob is they dont stay long on your lips ! but color is good and doesnt have a nasty taste on your lips
I have this in Sour Apple. Honestly, as a balm it's useless. It's thin, and basically evaporates right off my lips, leaving them dry and cracked. The scent is a faint fake green apple - it doesn't taste sour in any way, so "sour apple" is a misnomer. It is quite green, so you could look green around the lips if you apply heavily. The only good thing about it, honestly, is the packaging - a huge tube that twists at the bottom with a silver holographic and green polka dot label with a silhouette of a cowgirl on it. I've kept this in my computer desk drawer because it's too cute to toss even though it's basically useless as a balm. I won't buy it again.
