I purchased this product in the shade of Sweet Watermelon 30. When I saw these in the store, they reminded me of the Clinique Chubby Sticks that I have seen in magazines. I had a coupon plus 20% off my shopping visit at CVS, so I think the price was around $6.75. I like the fact that this lip stick doesn't need it's own sharpener--the product sharpens itself as you screw it up from the base. It's like a liner and color in one at the tip is sharp enough to line the lips first and then fill in the lips with the color. Even though most Neutrogena products are fragrance free, there is a hint of a fruity scent to this lip product that I kind refreshing. This shade goes on my lips a little lighter than the color on the stick and it has a bit of a shimmer. I talk all during my shift at work and this product stays on and doesn't bunch up in the corners of my mouth or get sticky. It wears very comfortably on the lip and feels very light. It's a great spring lip product, IMO. I will purchase one or two more of these babies to have in my collection because I adore the scent and the fresh feeling of this lip product. Winner!

I got the color 30 Sweet Watermelon. A light, frosty pink. I don't like frost, which is where my rating is coming from. It has very small glitter that is slightly noticeable when you rub your lips together. As a balm it's just meh. I wouldn't rely on it as one, but I'm the type to always have a lip balm very close by reapplication. Not too long after applying this I did reach for a clear balm just for the extra moisture. The peaches and cream scent is nice, but if you have an aversion to semi-strong scents you may not like it. Compared to Revlon, I prefer the balm/stain that Revlon provides.

I bought 2 of these to try them out. They are way slicker than Revlon's or Clinique's version of "chubby sticks." I bought:
Fresh Papaya: a shimmery coral
Soft Raspberry: a warm rose
Both are beautiful colors but they are less of a traditional color balm than the other 2 brands noted. Colors stayed true for me and did not turn bright pink like the Revlon ones.They have a lot of butters in them so pretty moisturizing.
The colors fell into my fine lines a tad whether because they are so moisturizing or not. These left 0 stain on my lips unlike Clinique's.These smell like mango but taste very strongly to me of perfumed sunscreen even though they have no spf listed.
They will not replace my Clinique favorites, unfortunately because of my dislikes listed above but they are better than Revlon's if you don't care about a stain or long wearing.
