I recently purchased this lip balm in cherry. I was hoping it would give me a beautiful red tint to my lips, and it did! Not too sheer, but not over the top either. It's just right. Not like a lipstick or balm in my opinion. A perfect equilibrium. The only downsides are the fact that it tastes absolutely awful. Have you ever accidentally gotten sunscreen in your mouth? Well, that is what it tastes like. I'm going to assume because it has SPF 15 and has the same relative ingredients that a sunblock would. The cap is also a pain. It sometimes nicks the top of the stick and I have to wipe it off to keep it from getting on the tube or my hands/clothes. Other than that, I do like the color and the fact that it keeps my lips from getting burnt to a crisp in the hot summer sun.

I have the Watermelon Juicy Balm, and while there are a few things I like about it, it just isn't a hit for me. As far as moisturizing goes, I think it does a good job. I put it on one night when I had chapped lips, and when I woke up the next morning they were smooth again. I really love the sheer green color because it reminds me of Enid Coleslaw from Ghost World. :P I also adore the packaging because it's so chunky and quirky. Sadly though, the balm smells and tastes AWFUL to me. When I put it on, I get a really bad, "chemical-y" taste on my tongue. It smells gross and artificial, too. It's a shame because if it wasn't for the smell and taste, I think it would be a great product!

It smells horrible after some days using it something like chemicals, you can feel the smell in your throat, literally it makes me sick, I get stomachache every time I use it. I like the colours they look so natural but my lips are dryer than before. I am no picky with makeup specially with the cheap one but I cant handle this. Definitely I won't use them again. I bought the four colours!!! I don't want to use them anymore, my stomach wouldn't resist

I have this lip balm in Strawberry and Cherry. Overall they are great lip balms that look really nice and are perfect for everyday use. And they only cost $2.99 at 5 Below!
Strawberry- Smells really good. Looks like a nice light pink on lips. This one, like the cherry, tastes bad. The taste is probably because it is SPF 15, which I don't think is necessary. But it does look very pretty.
Cherry- Smells like cherry popsicles. It is sort of artificial, though. It looks very bright red, which is very nice. This balm is very smooth on my lips, and never dries up my skin.
The packaging definitely could have been improved. It was cute, but highly unpractical. Whenever you would put the clear casing on the balm in a rush, it would chip off the balm, wasting it. You have to be EXTREMELY careful.

Pros: Pretty color, smooth, feels good putting on, semi-moisturizing.
Cons: Thin and very wet- leaving my lips not totally mositurized, and has a really gross after taste in your mouth no matter the color/flavor you buy.

I have the watermelon one. I love it. Very moisturizing. My lips stay moist for about 2 hours without drink or food which is a whole lot better than the over hyped EOS lip balms.

I got this in cherry. Lovely sheer color. Classic cough syrup cherry flavor. Very soft, slightly waxy feel. But it doesnt last long and it transfers like nothing else. Guess thats why its cheap.

I picked up these in Cherry and Raspberry. I liked the scent ,size and amount of product. Didn't find them very moisturizing.Loved the Cherry color but after an hour or so I kept getting a bitter taste on my mouth. Happened with the Raspberry one too. I wanted to ignore this as I really loved how the Cherry looked on me but I just couldn't. Don't think would purchase any other flavors nor use the ones I bought.

I have this in Sour Apple. Honestly, as a balm it's useless. It's thin, and basically evaporates right off my lips, leaving them dry and cracked. The scent is a faint fake green apple - it doesn't taste sour in any way, so "sour apple" is a misnomer. It is quite green, so you could look green around the lips if you apply heavily. The only good thing about it, honestly, is the packaging - a huge tube that twists at the bottom with a silver holographic and green polka dot label with a silhouette of a cowgirl on it. I've kept this in my computer desk drawer because it's too cute to toss even though it's basically useless as a balm. I won't buy it again.

I'm reviewing the juicy balms with the holographic female silhouette packaging. The packaging isn't as cute as the old balms with the fruit print but the formula is different. The older version was a bit more waxy and generally had a tint. The holographic ones are much lighter, emollient, and invisible. For a drugstore balm, these are a pleasant surprise. Granted the ingredient list is a bit crazy for me but it's nice to be able to pick up a cheapo balm from the drugstore I know I'd actually enjoy using. I also really like the subtle fruity scent to these, they're non-offensive and nostalgic of a lot of candies I enjoyed as a kid. Most aren't natural scents but I don't detect any plastic afterscent or taste. I enjoy these A LOT more than LipSmackers, Carmex, Softlips, Blistex, etc.
For $2.99 they're cheaper than the jumbo lipsmackers and work better. I managed to snag 8 on clearance at Rite Aid for 75 cents each (Orange, Strawberry, Cherry, Lemon-Lime, Sour Apple, Raspberry, Strawberry-Kiwi, Watermelon). The Orange is my fav because it reminds me of orange starbust candy (I assume this was once the Tangerine one). The one I dislike the most is Strawberry-Kiwi because it's quite perfumey.

I got this product in Strawberry, and the scent was nice, although it had a hint of that plasticky WnW lip product scent in it (not terribly though). This was great at moisturizing my oft-chapped lips and helping to lift dry, peeling skin off of them. Will definitely repurchase!

Oh, there are so many good things to be said about this lip balm. I have it in the Tangerine/Mandarine flavor and I love it! It moisturizes amazingly well, and tastes/smells incredible. This may sound weird but this balm tastes good enough to eat. It also gives a nice shine without the sticky feeling of gloss and gives off a very sheer color. I was so surprised to find such a wonderful product in the Wet'n'Wild section of my local drugstore. In my opinion, it beats out any of the more expensive lip moisturizers.

I'm a sucker for anything with raspberry in the name, so I (obviously) got the raspberry flavor. It smells amazing, moisturizes well, and is consistent in performance. I usually use some sort of chapstick as a lip balm, but I'm getting sick of the on-and-off performance they give. Yeah. Going through five different types of chapstick every morning will do that.
This lip balm always, always, always felt moisturizing on my lips and I never have to go over my lips twenty million times. Despite the bright, pretty color, this doesn't have much of a tint. Personally, I don't mind. Tinted lip balms are great, untinted ones are fine too, for me.
For drugstore lip balms, this is a bit on the pricier side, but I think I like it enough to deal with that.
My problems with this:
The packaging. The cap slides off waaaay too easily, so I'm scared to bring it around in my purse. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the cartoon fruits printed on the tube.
I really don't like how it's jumbo-sized. It's not much of a problem at first, but then I start getting this dent in the middle of the product, because that's the only part of the tube that touches my lips. My lips aren't thin, but they aren't Angelina Jolie or whatever. Once that dent formed, it started getting harder to apply the balm and it just got really messy. I dislike applying lip balms in a tube with a lip brush or fingers.
However, I really do like this lip balm, so I think I'm going to smash/melt/whatever it into a palette or something. And maybe get a couple more if that works.

I really like the lip balm. I just bought the one in cherry and notices that it gives my lips a nice little tint which is good for weekends or days when you dont want a lot of makeup but dont want to leave the house with nothing on. I was surprised I would like this product because I have tried so many colors from WnW that were either too light or looked very funny on my skin. I would definately buy this product (ant other flavors) again..

These lip-balms are crazy-amazing. I'm revising this review because I own 3 now, rather than the initial single one, my Cherry flavored Jumbo lip-balm. My Rite-Aid sells them for around $3 each, a bit steep for a balm with no healing or medicinal properties, but it moisturizes and smells divine, nevertheless. I have the Cherry, Tangerine/Orange, and the Strawberry. The only obvious 'tint' I get comes from the cherry which is a darker red than any of the shades of pink and it makes my lips a darker natural color which is beautiful. The Strawberry is a pretty pink...and the Orange is, duh, orange. They smell just like their given names, not much of a taste, but you could probably guess the flavor if one were just put on your lips.
I love the tube. It's oversized, makes me feel like a kid using it in public, but I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I'll probably have to pick up the rest of the flavors...neon colored chap-stick that slicks up your lips and keeps them that way? What's not to like.

Yum! I picked this up in Tangerine on a whim...the neon colors caught my eye. No regrets! It smells and tastes like an orange creamsicle. Probably a good kissing balm ;). Pretty smooth application and ALOT of product for the price ($3 for .27 oz, almost as much as two tubes of chapstick). It's so fun to use. My inner child is beaming.

I have tangerine, watermelon, and strawberry, and tangerine is my favorite so far. Great shiny balm. no real color. smells good. moisturizes good. I hate the packaging though. If I find a little tin I will squish it in there. I'll keep buying when its on sale.

I have the WnW Juicy Balms in Tangerine, Sour Apple, Lemon/Lime, and Boyz 'n' Berries. I purchased them after reading all the raves on the MUA message boards and I couldn't resist trying some of them, especially during the $0.99 WnW sale. My favorite by far is the Tangerine which has the most natural and intense scent of them all, followed by the Boyz 'n' Berries; the rest of them smell kind of fake, like artificial flavoring for candies. Overall, my opinion of them is that they're cute -- the packaging of these super big balms is pretty and adorable and they smell/taste alright. However, as a lip balm, it just doesn't cut it for me. I have seriously dry lips year round. These balms add a bit of thin, clear, slick shine to my lips but they do nothing to condition or moisturize them. The balm also wears off pretty quickly for me (no, I don't lick my lips ;) ) and I find that I have to constantly reapply.
