Such promise. Such disappointment. I think I must be alone in not being all that wowed by these. Perhaps it's the hype ? Anyway, I bought the "Candy Apple" shade, 7.99 (approx $12 USD) and whilst I really like the colour and the overall formulation is ok, there's a lot I'm not mad about and that puts me off buying again. 1. Staying power - Now I know this isn't a lipstick so I can't expect true 'long wear' from this, but I find the colour needs reapplication every couple of hours (that's not with a lot of drinking/eating/kissing etc). I get longer wear from normal tinted lip balm. 2. I hate the plastic, "quilted" lid. Cheap & tacky looking. 3. As another person said, there isn't much of the tube exposed under the lid so it can make gettting the lid off a little bit awkward. 4. The price - I'm a person who will happily spend big on cosmetics if they are good, but I begrudge even middle ground spend if it is wasted on something that just doesn't seem worth it and for me, this is one of those products. It should be 5.99 max, imo, closer to the USD price. 5. It's not that moisturing. I don't suffer from dry lips as a rule, but I still feel the need to wear a light layer of lip balm under this. I'll use it up because I like the colour but I won't rebuy, which is a shame because I really wanted to love these.
