L'Oreal's lipbalm in caring coral is absolutely great for an ordinary casual day, especially when I am in a rush. It is so easy to use, it glides easily, and has a natural sheer look. It brightens up my face in the most natural way. I don't even have to be so concerned about coloring inside my lip line. I could put it on so effortlessly and it always turns out good. It's also great for conditioning your lips and making it look glossy. I was surprised that the color from the balm could last all day as long as you aren't rubbing your lips with a napkin. I am almost running out now and so I will definitely buy it again or buy something like it.

Practically clear. I am pale with pale lips. But this has no color. What's the point?

How much you like this product depends on what you are buying it for. If you are looking for a product like the Revlon Lip Butter, then pass. This balm is much more sheer.
This product gives very little color and a bit of shine. You don't need a mirror to apply and it is very comfortable on your lips. It's not as moisturizing as an actual lip balm, like Nivea or Softlips, but it is nice and gives that bit of color. It's enough color to liven up your lips and look like you at least put something on your lips.
The package is nice, but slightly annoying. It's quite bulky, especially because you get such a small amount of product, and the cap only fits into the lipstick a certain way. Hard to explain, but it's like a lock and key and you only have a 1/4 chance of getting it right the first time so it can be a hassle.
In general, I really like this product. It's nice during the day to reapply at school because it's extremely simple and a nice color for a natural look.

I am a blue eyed NW10 (NW20 when tanning from a bottle).

I like this product because it gives me less hassle than another fav spring/summer product, L'Oreal Le Gloss in Peach Fuzz. It is not opaque on the lips, but gives my naturally very cool toned lips a "candy orange" tint, and gives them alot of life. For days when I want less of a "berry" look and more of a coral look, this does the trick without it looking unnatural or out of sync with my cool toned palette. a big plus for this product, in my book.

i kept this one, the color was a very sheer peachy pink on my pigmented lips. perfect for summer. its very hydrating and i love that i can just put this on and not worry about it looking too harsh. i just tried another color, nourishing nude, and i almost kept that one too but it was just a bit too brown for my tastes. cute case, love the formula and if they came out with more shades i would check them out.

I liked the texture of this lip balm and the hint of colour it provided, however all the colours in this line turned out sheer on me except for the Caring Coral one (upon numerous applications) and the Berry one. The product itself overall was a nice concept but I could not stand the taste of this product. It was plastic-y and nauseating. For this reason alone I tossed it out. Waste of money. No repurchase.

Pro: durable & chic packaging. Smell good

Cons: super sheer, unpigmented think clear gloss

Overall: even if the next time I encounter this lip balm and it was on sale for .99, I'll pass.

I love balms with a hint of color. This is a great creamy texture and feels wonderful going on my lips. I love that it has spf 15 in it. These colors are very very sheer, no matter how many layers you put on. That's ok for me since that means I can apply it without using a mirror. I do wish it added a bit more color. It's totally worth it if you find it on sale for about $5
