Love the moisturizing formula and color (plum), hate the smell. Fragrance in a lipstick, to me, is unnecessary and distracting. This particular fragrance is downright awful -- like Pine-Sol. Seriously. Please, Elizabeth Arden, reissue this in a fragrance-free version.

I have both, 8 hour lip balm and 8 hour protectant cream, and i m very satisfied. This lip protectant balm ( i have color blush) is very smooth, lips looks very hydrated, spf15 is great too, this color is ideal for someone who has fair skin, dark hair, or for summer for everyone. On first view, this stick looks too ardent, but when you putt them on lips looks very nice, fresh, almost natural. Smell is very alike to Dr. Hauschka all lip balms, and it is not a tragedy at all. This smell goes away after few minutes. So i think i would buy again this nice balm, and over ebay i paid them about 5$ so im more than satisfied!

Like thids alot - the smell i personally like, i didn't at first, but it grows on you! Great lip product, moistruises well, not overly shiny, goes on well under lipstick/gloss, good to use at night, lasts a while, and is packaged well. I am on my second one. Don't compare it to the 8 hour cream, as its not the same really, i actually prefer it, although i do have the 8 hour cream as well.
As a tip for the 8 hour cream, it was great for when i had a flu bug thing, and my nose was running and sore, i put in on my nose area at night, and it eased the soreness loads.

This has same no-good qualities as the cream itself; unbelievable prize, awfull smell and no healing/caring power what so ever. Don't waste your money.

What a bunch of hype over nothing! This is in no way comparable to the Original Eight Hour Cream - my lips are dried out within minutes of applying this, and the scent is god-awful. Not worth the money, by any stretch of the imagination. A Bonne Belle Lip Smacker beats this product my a mile.

There I was, standing amidst a myriad of different cosmetic products, and only 20 Latvian Lahts to spend before taking off from Riga... Quickly, I grabbed the Eight Hour Skin & Lip Protectant gift set from Elisabeth Arden. I had heard the hype, but never considered the rumors to be true.
Let me start by saying, that there is only so little that separates this product from getting only one lippie. After only five applications, the damned stick actually broke off. Secondly, after using this daily for three weeks it is almost gone. The moisturizing action is so, so... Similarly to applying pure petrolatum, lips look moist and shiny. There is no salicylic acid in this, like in the skin protectant, so there is no peeling action. However, they have added generous amount of citral, citronellol, geraniol and limonene to give a "tingling" sensation, I suspect. I do not feel that this product performed extraordinarily. My lips are slightly dry and chapped in the Winter, and this product made no difference. I know of lip glosses that are way cheaper, tastes good, lasts long and provide moisture and color, as well!

I bought this product for spf then as moisturizer. It stays on my lips for about 2 hours then I can't trace it anymore. It does not make my lips shiny, soft or moisturized at all. After brushing my teeth at night I find my lips drier.
My sister got me another stick of this in plum color for my birthday. I am not going to rate the color anymore just the quality of the colored ones. I really hate hate it. The color slides off to the corner of my lips (and to the cracks) and the stick broke off after being left in the car.
With this quality, I find this product horrible and terribly expensive.

This feels very nice and moisturizing on the lips, but doesn't do that much more than drugstore versions and the price is ridiculous. But I still really like wearing it. I would give it four if they didn't always break off.

Not recommended at all.. contains lanolin which doesn`t do anything for your lips. Also, the smell is HORIBLE. Yuck.

I am surprised by all the negative reviews about this lip balm. I really like the smell, kind of earthy and grassy. It is in a convenient lipstick form for easy applying on the run. It goes on smoothly and makes my lips feel soft and moist. I mainly purchased it for the SPF, which I try to always have on my lips, but ended up loving it for many other reasons. I got the clear, so I have no issues with color. I think it is a great lip cream. Also, I kept my tube in my car all summer and never had a problem with breakage.

This was an impulse buy to end 'em all. DH and I were returning from our honeymoon and had some Euros to spend before we hit the states, so I plunked down my remaining E20 on an Eight-Hour giftset. It came with the cream and lip balm stick. I'm not thrilled with either. I do like the smell of the stick balm; a sophisticated, clean, calming herbal scent. However, it isn't any better than LipSlicks, Lip Smackers, or any other cheap stick glosses/balms made with petrolatum and wax. Has SPF 15 and lends a nice sheen, but doesn't last worth a damn. I get MUCH better results-- and an equally pleasant scent-- from my Dr. Hauschka Lip Care Stick and Mode La Vie Karite Lips. I find shea butter and natural plant oils to be longer-lasting and more emollient than synthetic ingredients.

Have to keep reapplying even though it is supposed to be 8 hour lasting? Generally feels o.k. on lips but feels like it keeps "sliding" off or something! Like the Plum color but will purchase something different next time.

I used to like this - the plum is a great color and I like the sunscreen but I have recently become allergic to it (the lanolin I think) and so give it a low rating. I agree with the reviews about the scent being strong, the sunscreen not being broad spectrum, the price being too high and the wimpy moisturization.

I've purchased both Chestnut and Plum in the Eight Hour Sheer Tint Sticks, and have been reasonably happy with both colors. Each gives me a YLBB look with a nice gloss, either warm or cool toned to match my mood/outfit/etc. I don't find the formula greasy or tacky in any way. The gloss is subtle rather than high-shine, and the formula feels as if it does a sufficient job of hydration so far. As I didn't purchase these until Spring, I can't say how they will perform in winter. I like the SPF, and the fragrance that I first found off-putting is now pretty much invisible to me. In my experience, these react on my lips very similarly to Clinique's Almost Lipstick but with a much more limited range of shades. I don't think I'd pay full price for these, but getting them for 1/2-price on eBay suits me fine.

I bought this in plum. This balm did not moisturize my lips at all during the winter, and made them crack, to boot. I was tempted to toss it or give it away. Anyway, its summer now, i tried it again and it seems to work much better. the colour is nice, but the shine fades quickly. I like the smell, and the packaging is OK at best. I'd buy it again if it was less than $7, but for $13, forget it. so, i dunno, 3/5 lippies.

I got this in blush. What a dumb, old-lady color! Didn't mind the consistency, didn't even mind the smell - but that is an old-lady pink if I ever did see one. Might try plum if I'm in the mood for a new balm. Or maybe not. Just trust me & don't get the blush. It's f-ugly!

Definitely the best lip balm I've tried. It moisturizes my dry lips. Long-lasting too, even better than the Keil's I also use. What I don't like is its smell/taste and price. Will definitely buy again if I get good deal.

The cap comes off (a basic thing to get right!), the stick breaks off, it melts in summer, and smells like rat poison. It works fine, though, as it is mostly petroleum jelly and frangrance.

Eh, it did okay as far as moisturizing, and the smell is fine with me, but when it gets warm it gets real soft, i broke it at the base of the stick, dont know what to do with it now...

This lip balm is one of the best ones I have tried. It is suppose to be a stick form of the original 8 hour cream. However, I found the original 8 hour cream in tube form to be more potent. The tube form also looks more glossy & pretty on the lips than the stick form.
