Gotta say I'm not a huge fan of these. Not sure what all the hype is. The packaging is cute, price is a little pricy for a mediochre drugstore product. I tried the cherry flavor(can't remember the name) and peach kiss. They were so unpigmented that it was barely even a tinted lip balm. Also they were really frosty and gritty feeling like the glitter was chunky. The smell was okay but not great. If you get it in your mouth it tastes NASTY. Doesn't feel moisturizing either, it feels more like putting water on your lips. The NIVEA tinted lip balms are a much better dupe! Better price, better smell, better flavor, better color, no chunky shimmer, and much better hydration.
I really like this lip balm. I have the peach and the mint ones (purple tube and green tube) and I really like the mint one! It smells amazing and goes great under lipstick. I also think it works great on dry, cracked lips. The staying power is so-so. It can feel greasy and thin, but it looks great. The packaging is adorable and I love the twist tubes!
i tried this i the peach flavor/color. prior to this i was using Burt's Bee's Acai Berry balm, which i LOVE, but i figured i'd try this out for a hint of color. i'm not much of a lipstick person b/c i dont like to be constantly re-applying it .
i like the smell of this a lot, although to me it smells nothing like peaches just fruity. and i'm not bothered by the taste, i actually like that too. really, it's hardly noticable at all. i was a bit aprehensive of the frost/shimmer in the peach, b/c i HATE frost, but i really wanted the peach color! and i'm glad i tried it, b/c the shimmer is basically not even there, it's really onlu a hint. the color, however, IS there. i didnt even realize how much till i wiped my mouth after eating and there was a lot of non-food color on my napkin :)
the texture is smooth, and i really pile this stuff on, as my lips always tend to be quite dry. on me it lasts a couple hours, as long as i dont eat or drink.
i love that i can apply sans mirror and not have to worry about staying "in the lines". i bought one of these as a gift (lets hope she doesnt read this review!) and i plan on buying at least one more for myself, although i dont know if i'll go for the cherry or pink. most likely cherry :)
I only have one of these so far and the one I have is quenched. I really like how it makes my lips soft and the consistency I guess is maybe a little bit greasy feeling but I prefer this over something goopy. The only complaint I guess that I would have is that it has a kind of gross taste. I am considering trying out the peppermint one because I do like how it makes my lips feel and its not expensive and maybe the peppermint will work like my quenched one but without the gross taste? worth a try at least
It's hard for me to find something I like to put on my lips. I'm not really a lip stick or gloss wearer so I tried this for a chapstick. I have cherry me and I loooove it. It smells really good too. I had a dollar coupon for it so got it for less than $2. Its consistency is slippery and moisturizing which I like. I will be buying a couple of the other colors, probably pink punch and the grape one.
I've been using Kiehl's, which I hate. This one, is 1/3 of the price and works well. So far, I like it.
Does make lips very soft when the wetness wears away
In the middle between vaseline and chapstick for feeling/texture
Lasts longer than chapstick
Color is matte which I don't like and accentuate the dry lip skin globbies that you didn't know you had, but aye--apply a gloss and bam
Color kinda bleeds, especially if you forget you're not wearing chapstick and mosh your lips around.
Color does transfer (so watch out when kissing someone)
Bottom line--I will repurchase this rather than apple chapstick because it lasts longer and feels better.
I have a serious problem of biting and picking off the skin off my lips, and I put this on after I do the damage.. And the skin that grows back on my lips is good, and not dehydrated. The EOS lipbalms the skin that grows back is VERY thing and comes off easily.. Good lipbalm.
Oh I was so excited to try this!!! I got it in Pink Punch and as soon as I got out of the drugstore I ripped it out of its little package and started to apply it. It was really smooth on and it left my lips very moisturized. It really does smell like fruit punch but I didn't notice any taste on my lips. That was kind of a let down for me. Some people don't like for their lip balm to have flavoring but this one would be perfect with a little bit of a fruity taste. The color looks neon in the tube but on the lips it's just a bright baby pink, not overwhelming or overdone. It stays for about two hours on my lips which is good for a lip balm especially a tinted one. I do not mind reapplying because this its so cheap. This might not be everyone's favorite but it works for me. I can't wait to try some other colors!!! Oh and I forgot to add, I love the packaging. It's simple and it works. : )
I did not like this product at all I bougt the peppermint . Nice packaging,but leaves my lips dry has a awful taste total waste of money!
