While I really like the colour of the Nourishing Nude I got of this product (clean nude lip with slight pink tone) and I wanted to love it, it just does not work as a balm at all on me. When I apply it it feels nice and light but it is gone in an hour and my lips feel more dry than when I put it on to start with. Just like any other lipstick (for me). I do have quite dry lips and had such hopes for this! Oh well, off to search for revlon Lip butters !!!
I got this in Pink Satin. I'm not a fan of a very heavy color on lips, I like a lot of moisture and a sheer wash of color, or no color at all. This fits the bill perfectly! It is very moisturizing, with good ingredients, and looks beautiful on, shiny and pretty without a made-up look. I went back today and got Nourishing Nude and Caramel Comfort, as well.
These are AWESOME! I have bought 3, and used up 2 already. They are rich and moisturizing, without that awful silicone or sticky jelly feel. Just a very moisturizing, soft, lip balm with color. Yes these are sheer, without tons of color, but that's why it is advertised as BALM ;-) It isn't advertised as a lip stain or a lip stick. BALM. Lip balm typically has no to very little color. I wanted something I could apply liberally for shine and moisture and only a little color. I do not like the chapstick type sticks, and I wanted to get away from the insect derived red coloring that Burts Bees uses. The two really dark colors ARE very pigmented so you can wear them as a lipstick if you want. I will definitely repurchase these!!! This is my favorite lip product I have bought in a LONG time, and I have hundreds of different lipsticks, glosses, and balms.
A youtube "guru"(hollyannaeree) I follow mention these in one of her videos, and she did say more cons then pro's for this product. We don't have these here in Australia yet, so when I was purchasing my Revlon Lip Butters of eBay, the fantastic seller I brought from had these in their online store as well, so off course I needed to get some(slapping myself across the face right now!).
With a background thought that these might be a let down from watching Holly's video, I brought the 2 colours that she mention that might work for people with pigmented lips, those colours were Caramel Comfort and Tender Mauve.
Absolutely love these! In terms of quality I actually love them more then the Revlon Lip Butters, in terms of colours, great selection, but in all honesty I wouldn't go nuts on these like how I would with the Revlon ones.
These are extremely sheer, I believe the lighter colours might be pointless for me with pigmented lips, and I wont be getting any of the light colours in this range. Unlike the Revlon one, those were all pigmented and it was worth while getting. Despite saying they are extremely sheer when applied, there will be subtle hint of colour, dont expect pigmentation like Revlon.
A lot of people say these are oily, not moisturising etc. I actually found that last quiet well, and much more mosturizing then the Revlon ones. The Revlon ones come across more like a lipstick, where as these comes across more like a lip gloss(Well actually I think it is marketed as a moisturizing lip gloss).
These have more sheen then the Revlon ones and I probably would be looking at getting maybe all of the darker colours.
I love tender Mauve, I've been wearing it soo much as off lately, the thing I love about Tender Mauve is the more you apply the more milky it actually looks.
Caramel Comfort is also a fantastic colour that I love as well, it does nude out your lips a little, for people with pigmented lip like me, this colour actually tones down your lips a little, but not completely, so it doesn't look like your washed out or dead.
I got this in Pink Satin and at first I was like, what's the big deal? It's clear and shiny. So what. After a couple of uses I noticed that there IS color to it. It make my lips a noticeable yet natural looking light pink with a good shine. It also made my lips super soft. Considering I have a couple coarse scars on my lips from competition fighting, that's saying something. I love this stuff and will continue to buy/use it. Maybe I'll get out of my rut & try a different color (: continued >>
Very moisturizing and sheer. Gives a nice sheen To my lips. Color comes out to a soft nude pink, which is perfect for any makeup look. Not as pigmented as the revlon lip butters but I def would repurchase this product if I run out.
If you compare this to Revlon's lip butter, it won't be as pigmented. What I like about this balm is that it has a spf of 15, moisturizing, and doesn't smell too bad. I actually like the smell which reminds me of the coated of easter eggs. I can see why some reviewers would not like this product however. It's 8.99 cdn, which is pretty pricey for what you get. It is after all just a balm with almost no color pay off. You might as well purchase something inexpensive that does the same job. I still find myself reaching for this over my lip butters though. It just brings me happiness when I use this for some odd reason. I purchased this in caring coral. I took and uploaded the picture of it above. I am excited to try some other colors as well! :)
III have this in coral. I was very dissapointed with no high shine or color shows, just a clear balm. I was expecting a coral color at least sybtle, but no, and highly pricey for that too, and those are the cons. The pros are it is moisturizing and long lasting. I like the slanted cap and colour. It is Colour Riche (I mean full of rich color)
Wow...this works amazing while I'm wearing it. It's super moisturizing, but the effects don't last long. Otherwise, it's a nice sheer formula, and if I had known it was so sheer, I would have bought more colors. But yes, this is my new go-to in the morning when I'm rushing out for school.
I bought this in Tender Mauve, a cool shade that shows up decently on my somewhat pigmented lips. I like the look and feel of the product, and the packaging is better than the Revlon Lip Butters, which are difficult to open. However, I found it tasted overwhelmingly of the sunscreen ingredients, as if I had slathered Coppertone on my lips -- blech! I don't know if I just got a bad tube, since most reviewers don't seem bothered by the taste, but it's been enough to put me off buying more of these. Too bad, because I like everything else about them.
