About me: NW13 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
This is a great lip balm, but I can't believe I paid as much as I did for it : ( It's really expensive, and after using it daily, it only lasted me 2 months. Granted, I did use it under my eyes as well for the spf. It did its job well, I just wish it was about half its price.

My favourite lip balm alongside Dior's creme de rose. I love this - application is sheer and easy. Makes lips feel great. I use it as a primer before applying gloss/ lip liner. Smells great, tastes of creme brulee! yummy!

This lip balm has just the perfect amount of shimmer. It's not goopy, smells great, moisturizes, and adds a little something to an otherwise bare lip. I love it and wear it everyday. If you hate the cheap frosty look that most shimmer lipsticks and glosses give, try this instead. I just wish it was closer to $15 instead of $22. It's definitely overpriced.

As others have said, this is a cute, shimmery almost-gloss but what it is not is a true lip balm. After a week of using this instead of my trusty shea butter, my lips are dry and chapped. It smells wonderful and having spf in it is a great bonus but it's definitely not moisturizing enough me.

I probably reach out for this more than any other lip products I have.
This is not your typical $1 chapstick that's for sure. not even close to burt's bees nor Nivea or anything in that nature.
You can feel the Shea Butter on this, very moisturizing and perfect for winter. Not sticky and doesn't have a funky smell/taste. The only thing that really sucks about this ... The Price. it has a hefty price tag. $22 is crazy for a lip balm, but I have tons of chap sticks here and there and got thrown away, except for this Laura Mercier one.

This smells amazing and gives a subtle luminous shine. However, if I am going to pay $25CAD for a lip balm, it needs to be more pigmented so I can justify the price (lip balm and lip stick in one). This is pretty much clear on me. Would have been nice to get a wash of pink. That said, ignoring the exorbiant price, this is one of the best high-end lip balms I've tried so far because it's in stick form and looks sophisticated when you pull it out of your purse and is moisturizing and smells good. For reference, I also like Mac's TLC but this is slightly better.

I was really excited to try this lip balm out. I wear eye makeup, but because I'm sensitive to most foundations I usually skip it and somewhere along the line my lips started missing out. I use The Body Shop shea lip butter from time to time but that's it. My first thought was that this is ridiculously expensive for the tiny amount. It has a sweet smell that some might dislike but I sort of got used to it. It goes on smoothly and is very sheer without being sparkly. I didn't notice any plumping effects and it could be more moisturizing but the color is so pretty and it gives my lips a natural shine that helps me look more together. I would buy this again just for the color, and not for the moisturizing or plumping effects.

I'm afraid I have to echo the other commenters here: great product, entirely too expensive.
The scent and feel of the product is great (if a little thin for a balm). On my lips, there's a slight shimmer and pink shine that perk me up and make me look healthy. And the packaging is that of a nice lipstick. No messy fingers, no hesitation about pulling it out in public.
The price is the same old story with all Laura Mercier products - too darn much, but you pay it if you can. I just looked on the LM website and saw this priced at $20, though I would have sworn I paid more. So either she's lowering her prices, or my mind is going. I certainly hope it's the former!

I really like this lip balm. It is very effective in adding moisture and I like this nice sheen it gives. However, it does run out quite quickly and it's just not practical for a student like me to be spending so much on a lip balm right now.

Laura Mercier could probably sell me toilet seat covers as blotting paper and I would be all up in that. The woman is a genius. Anyway, on to the negatives. this balm IS ridiculously overpriced. I know, I know. And the product runs out quickly with daily use. I know this because I have so many lip balms I never finish and this one finishes on me. However, I allow myself a budget of two per year (I have a wee lip balm addiction problem) and pinch myself for being stupid and move on. On to the positives: I waste 60 francs of my hard earned money for two tubes (and spend four hours round trip in a train to get some when I run out) because this stuff is very nourishing on my lip balm addled lips, adds a bit of shine, and just feels very luxurious. This truly is an effective balm for dry, irritated lips, and also works to maintain and give a little shine when my lips are on good shape. I also have my own niche of making my lip balm addiction socially acceptable and since this kinda looks like lipstick I don't look like the lip balm junkie I am at work, which helps me justify the cost too. Although the website says it adds no extra color, my lips aren't very pigmented and I see a difference when I wear this. Obviously if you have dark Angelina lips to begin with all you get is a little shine. The only tiny think I don't like is that this balm is shaped like a lipstick ,and the angle of the tip is too severe.Until it gets to "your shape" you have to be careful about breakage. So one lippie off packaging for that.
If you feel like paying for this, it is worth the investment, even if still overpriced. I always have one in my stash. I haven't found a better balm in a lower price range (and believe me I have tried them ALL) or else I would stop buying this one because it is a royal pain to get in Europe.

I actually loved this balm--grown-up lip balm, as the SA called it. It IS very sophisticated looking but I'm not about to pay $22 for looks. The balm itself is nice if a bit on the light side--silky texture and pleasant scent that's not fruity or perfumey. However, the niceness ends there. There isn't very much product (remember, this is packaged like a lipstick and a small lipstick at that) so if you use this several times a day like me, you'll go through it very quickly. Sorry Laura Mercier, $22 for a simple lip balm is ridiculous. For that much money, I can buy 7 tubes of my HG natural food store balm. Final verdict: nice but not $22 nice. Save your money.

No way would I ever buy this again. I used this for only 3 days and I have two lovely painful pimples on my lip line. Horrible. I would never ever buy this again in a million years. Awful! AND I have a date this week. Thanks. :(

I really love this lip balm. To me, it's more like a lip gloss in stick form. I love how sheer it is, with the slight shimmery strawberry color- gives nice post-popsickle results. The vanilla scent is very soothing, as is the creamy semi-glossy formula.

This is a bit too light for me, and I have been noticing some flaking on the lips when using this on it's own. Under something else like a lip gloss or lipstick it works better. But there are other products out there that does a better job for me. (I live in a cold climate though so that might have something to do with it). I agree with some of the other reviewers that it almost seems too thin to hold an spf 15. The slight colouring and the very subtle shimmer is nice but barely noticeable on the lips, (and definately not when used under something else. It has a very strong scent of vanilla too that is pleasant when just smelling the stick, but on the lips I find it a bit overwhelming at times. (Gives off somewhat of a taste too, that is not all nice).

I'm not sure about this. The smell is appealing, but the taste is not that great...but tolerable. LM balm comes in a nice stick, and I like the fact that this has SPF in it. The staying power is ok, but I didn't notice my lips plumping (like the description said it would!). I think Rosebud is a better lip balm! It's more moisturizing, and has a MUCH better taste (Strawberry lip balm).

one of the best lip balms. stays put and softens your lips very nicely. non greasy.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other, Fair Hair: Other Eyes: Brown
The price is almost like a scam. This is a moisturizing lip balm that goes on clear with slight shimmer. I would pay $8 for a lip balm like this max, not $20, especially given the fact that you go through this fast. The smell is okay, but it stung my lips for the first 5 minutes.
I believe Sally Hansen has similar products for much cheaper.

First of all, it's expensive (VERY expensive in Europe where it's scarcely available). Second: it's the most moisturizing lipbalm I've tried and I've tried a lot. But the best tester was my boyfriend because he usually has flaky lips all winter and I've made him try all the balms that got decent reviews, most recently: Dr. Hauschka Lip Care Stick (too waxy and not moisturizing enough), TBS Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick (slightly better texture but not moisturizing enough) and Bare Escentuals Lip Savor (great non waxy texture but not moisturizing enough). He told me that nothing's as good as this LM Lip Balm SPF15. He uses it at night, it feels very moisturizing and softening right away and it heals flakes overnight. He doesn't even care about the shimmer and will use it at day time when he needs it, because it's so good.

i used to pair with this with lip silk for many many years. this during the day and lip silk at night. but i found that this habit was entirely too expensive. i have absolutely no complaints about this product. except for the fact that i found myself going through it way too quickly. so now i've substituted this with ddf glossy lip therapy15. a great substitutate that seems to last much longer.

Pretty good product, but the price was hefty in Canada, it was over $40.
