Just saying that I would buy this again is telling you that -duh- this product is AMAZING! The color is very wearable for someone younger like me. It has a nice tingling/minty feeling on your lips, which I just happen to LOVE! The staying power on this product is fenominal! It lasts me up to half the day. I'm always looking for a better balm/gloss whenever I go to Sephora! This is a must-have for me. I always have it in my school bag. I actually received this a Christmas gift, and was trying it out to review. Anyways, I didn't but this myself... I'd have to do research on how expensive this is to re-buy it. Packaging is also a thumbs-up for me. I'm usually a pretty hard makeup grader, but this is an easy one for me. You're crazy if you don't own one of these!!!

A great lipgloss/balm.
This is incredibly moisturising, has an SPF and a lovely minty smell/tingle.
I also love the slight tint in the gloss.
I am a big fan and would definitely buy this again.

I think the best compliment I can give this lip-balm is that I would actually buy it again (which is really saying something given that I have flings with many lip glosses but a lasting relationship with very few!)
The thing I like best is that despite it's colour, it's actually a balm. Most balms I have work great as balms but are boring and clear. This however, looks scarily red in the tube but applies as a very natural, subtle red colour. It also smells delightfully pepperminty (I can't stand balms/glosses that have that artificial, sickl-sweet fruity smell).
It's a bit gloopy to start with but I think this only enhances it's moisturising properties. Once it warms up to skin temperature, however, it's a very moisturising, and slightly runnier, texture.
I definately recommend this one for those who want a moisturising balm with a hint of colour

I found this product about a year ago when I was suffering from yet another bought of serious dry lips (I am plagued with this every winter and is made worse by the fact that I have sensitive skin and have problems finding products that don't lead to swollen and even drier lips). I love this product and have two, one kept at home and the other in my purse. I have no idea what some of you are talking about with the lack of color, I have had numerous people who have commented on the color. The color is faint yet works super awesome for me since I can't wear most glosses or any lipsticks. This product does get very very runny when kept in a warm place but that is my only complaint.

This is another find from Winners. I paid 5$ for it, so I was happy with the price. I really like the tingley feeling this gloss gives. It feels wonderful. I love the sheer pinky hue that it gives off. I have used up almost the entire tube in 5 months, and I would be willing to pay full price for another one. Great gloss !

I have had this for about 5 years when it first came out in a tub. It is not red at all on my lips but a natural pinky blush. very pretty and moisturizing. I will buy again, this time it is in an applicator ,,,even better. I love it.

I love this lip balm! I'm quite pale and it gives my lips a tinge of pink (not red) lip color that is just enough to give my lips a pop. I also like the minty/tingly feeling on my lips when I put it on. It has some SPF in it- which is a must for any day time lippie that I use. I would like to think of this lip balm as lip gloss for people who hate lip gloss (someone like me). I hate lip gloss and this is a lovely, smooth and semi-thick (more lip balm like) texture that doesn't stick or get gloopy. It has SPF, color and a luscious amount of moisture. What else could a girl ask for? Also, it definitely gives a sort of "just bitten" look to the lips on paler skin tones ;)

I was expecting more from philosophy. Maybe I was just taken in by Philosophy's clever/cute marketing. At any rate, this lip balm has the appearance, texture, and effect of plain vaseline. The red colour doesn't show up at all. The scent is nothing memorable. It's not worth the price.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I love this!!!! Its not sticky or drying -- it feels like a nourishing oil. I love the subtle stain and this has lasted me so long its worth the $10 price tag.

At first I wasn't impressed by this lip balm, but after using it for a while I've changed my mind. It is moisturizing and provides a little color. It is great for when I'm in a hurry. I also like the way it is packaged. I will probably buy this again.

Update: this review is for the old formula without SPF. I read that they changed the scent, and it is now minty. When I purchase the new formula, I'll update in a separate review.
"Kiss Me" is an oldie but goodie for me, a product I have used off and on for a very long time in keeping with my love for colored lip balms. It's a very nice berry red balm (slightly cool toned) with a slippery gel like consistency (not greasy) and if I recall correctly, has no recognizable scent, but smells pleasant, if that makes sense. I love the light slippery texture, which feels very good going on my lips. Not heavy, yet comfortable and moisturizing. I first bought it back when it came in a jar, used that up, then bought one in the updated tube and went through that one as well a long time ago.
I would have continued purchasing had I not been lured by other colored balms such as Smith's Minted Rose, (a perennial favorite); Origins' Smileage plus Lip Tint in "Off Beet" (another fave); L'oreal's Jelly Balm in "Luscious", and Kiehl's Lip Balm in 58B. You can only have so many at a time!
Needless to say, buying and using something up twice is a test of my appreciation and loyalty. All of the aforementioned balms are unique in their own way. Different colors, textures, etc. Philosophy "KIss Me" leans more toward a light, clear, berry color that leaves a very faint stain and non-greasy moisture. Unlike some of the other favorites, it is far less opaque and/or glossy, and therefore more natural looking, in my opinion.
I passed this up yesterday at the store and was tempted by it once again. I think it moisturizes well, smells good, and will find its way back into my heart--and stash--soon enough. :-D

I love this! It moisturizes very nicely and is great for anyone who wants to wear a light color on their lips. Not sticky at all. I have used this and the regular kiss me for just about 10 years now!

I've been using and buying this gloss for so many years, I've lost count. I carry one in my car, one in my purse and I have one in my nightstand. I apply it every night just before I turn out the lights. My lips are so smooth the next morning. If I ever found out they were discontinuing this, I'd buy up every tube I could I get my hands on. Seriously! Love the consistency and the scent (tangerine? orange?). Truly one of life's simple pleasures:-)

This doesn’t smell great but that doesn’t stop me from using it. This is a very sheer red that applies evenly and leaves a subtle stain on my lips even after the balm has worn off. Moisturises nicely and is reasonably long lasting.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Red, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
This is a very lightly pigmented berry color. Like you've been eating berries and then put on a clear gloss. Feels light on the lips.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Black Eyes: Green
I really enjoy this gloss. It goes on smoothly and without stickiness, and does a good job hydrating my lips (something I can't say about the majority of my lip glosses). I have a very pale complexion, and the red is only tinted just enough to add a deeper but not-overwhelming color. It's become a standard that I wear almost every day!

This balm gives a nice shine with very sheer color. I wasn't crazy about the scent/taste. The packaging is cute and I always like slant tip applicators. Unfortunately, the formula is way too thick. I have a really hard time squeezing it through the hole in the tip. I usually knead the tube in my fingers for a minute or two but this only helps little. I got so frustrated with this that I never use it anymore.

The smell and taste of these is great, and they add a ton of shine. My only complaint is that if you live in a cold climate, these do freeze up pretty easily in your purse and they're really hard to put on then.

I was recommended this Lip Balm by a SA at Sephora. I like the fact that it comes in a tube which is very convenient for when I am on the go. No messy pot to have to keep sticking your fingers in, just press the applicator tip of the gloss on your lips. I am impressed with this lip balm. My lips felt very soft after applying this lip balm and they looked nice and glossy. The lip balm is not greasy or heavy, it is very light. The lip balm is red but it actually goes on sheer. The lip balm also has a nice fruity scent. The lip balm contains vitamin E, kiwi and sweet almond oil. I will generally use this for touch ups when I am out and about and also when I am not in the mood to wear a lip gloss or lipstick.

I'm addicted to lipbalm, and am constantly buying new ones to try, but sadly this turned out to be a very average performer. I like colour as well as moisture on my lips, and in the tube, Kiss Me Red looked like it would give a lovely wine-tint to my pale lips. I knew the moment I squeezed some product out of the tiny nozzel that this was going to give no colour, and I was right. It's thick and stiff in texture, non-sticky (I'll give it points for that though), and has an artifical smell to it, sort of medicated. No hint of a colour at all, just moist lips, so i could never wear this alone without lipcolour underneath, unless I wanted to look ill ! To be honest, as much as I hate using Vaseline on my lips, Vaseline would give me the same "moist" lip, at the fraction of the price, and would feel less "heavy" too - Kiss Me might me moisturising, but even a thin layer of this feels horribly thick on my lips.
For colour and a nicer feel, I can recommend Burt's Bees Pomegranate Lipbalm stick or my current yummy fave Lip Smackers Coca Cola Cherry which tastes and smells so good you'll be addicted (..or remembered...!)
