This is a fantastic lip balm. It gives my lips shine, it has a nice rose scent that is not overwhelming or offensive, and it is super duper moisturizing. When I apply this balm (sometimes with clean finger, other times with a lip brush), my lips feel cushiony soft. The balm is not super slick, which sometimes with slick glosses I feel that they really don't last very long. I would describe the consistency as light/mid thickness, non-sticky, and definitely balmy (I know hence the BALM factor, but seriously). Also, there is no taste to it.
The color payoff is very sheer, but lovely. It give your lips a natural tint, which makes them look almost lush and edible (can definitely seduce a lover).
I believe this surpasses Smith's Rose Balm, or salve or whatever it is called. My lips always felt dry once Smith's balm wore away, but not with this balm. In fact, yesterday my lips were chapped because of a longwearing lippie, and I wore this. Guess what: no more chappies. Most excellent product.
I love it so much that I have this in sheer red, shimmering plum, and shimmering bronze. Oh and they work wonderfully with lipsticks too.

This balm is awesome. It really does soothe your lips quite nicely and moisturize. Mark seems to really rock at making comforting lip products. If I ever really wanted to treat my lips I'd wear this with a little Electro Lights gloss on top for the ultimate "lip spa". It's too bad the sheer red color has been discontinued; it tints the lips a nice "cherry popsicle" shade. This balm is still available in other colors though. If you are concerned, mark's products are never tested on animals. The only thing I don't like about the balm is the tin packaging...however that would not deter me from repurchasing in the future in other colors.

im so sad, can't find this anywhere anymore. if anybody has suggestions of an alternative, please tell me! im so in love with this colour. all my life i only tried peach/coral shades, thinking that red is for marilyn monroes. after i tried this Sheer Red one after recommendations here, i never knew red could look so natural and pretty. i cant believe its not sticky at all, because i am naturally adverse to having any sticky substance on my lips (read: lipglass), and its really moisturizing and lasts. only wished that it came in a wand form so that i could whoop it out of my bag during the day to reapply more frequently without dipping my fingers in. the tin is a pain to open too, but i dont care so much anymore, because this is simply such a Godsent for me. im crying! somebody tell me how i can get product this again!

This is the only lip balm that actually lasted longer than an hour and it leaves a really nice tint on my lips.

This product is generally very nice, although it not exactly the same as Kiss Therapy in the original shade. I do find that the scents vary between the two, the Sheer Red tends to have a more plant-like rose scent versus the original's sweet rose scent.
The shade is very fun, but I wouldn't call it red - closing to strawberry, an orangish red. Application looks like you ate a strawberry popsicle, or a bowl of raspberries. It's great for the holiday season, although it might not agree with all skin tones. It has a gel-like color to it, in the sense that while the color is obvious upon application, it's not opaque.
The packaging is in a very cute silver tub, although I'm developing a dislike for finger-applying balms/glosses. I've found no trouble with the lid being too tight or too loose; however, in my original Kiss Therapy, the scraping of metal when I open the container has created a few tiny gray flakes inside the product.
The tub of the product is huge - I wouldn't repurchase. I'd rather find this shade in a different packaging, if I decide it's something I'd use from day-to-day.

Not enough pigment for my taste; might as well wear chapstick.

HG tinted lip balm, I want them to make it in more colors! The color is kind of a neutral mlbb pink on me if I use just a little, but it can go to full on shiny pinky red if I use a lot. This stuff blows benetint balm out of the water. The color is a little warmer and more neutral than benetint so it flatters a wider range of skintones although it's a little less glossy. The formula is just all around superior as well, it feels more balmy on my lips and moisturizes much better, the lasting power is pretty fabulous because the color and moisture stick around, and I can't detect any flavor. Texturewise it feels like a cross between too faced bunny balm and rosebud salve. Fans of rosebud salve should check this stuff out, it's thicker so it stays on my lips much better, but it's not as thick as bunny balm so my hair doesn't get as stuck in it and it doesn't get uber tacky in cold weather. Those turned off by the scents of benetint and rosebud salve might consider giving this stuff a whiff, the scent is definitely much less perfumey and doesn't linger. My favorite way to wear this for day to night: smudge Stila rose cc on lips and cheeks with this on lips, black mascara, eyeliner, and a little champagne highlighter on the inner eye corner. Re-applying kiss therapy thoughout the day and rose cc after meals builds the color up to a stain, so for going out at night add a very soft smoky eye (stila shore works well) or a wash of highlighter and more mascara and top lips with clear gloss.

This is a staple for me. It really gives me long-lasting moisture while leaving a hint of color. Its scary red in the pot, but comes off "just bitten" on the lips. My only problem with this is that it comes in a pot form (I hate dipping my fingers into a lip product; I don't think its sanitary) but the low price makes up for it.

Love this stuff! HG! Tin is at times hard to open, but otherwise a wonderful product. Adds a hint of colour, moisturizing without being too sticky or thin.

It softens my lips, makes a great lipstick base and gives me that nice hint of color. It looks pretty cool in the tin too!

this is just as wonderful as it clear version. it gives just a hint of red tint. If you really wanted it to show you could just layer it. I've done that a few times and it looks great. This stuff, in addition to looking great, softens and moisturizes my lips. it has the perfect hint of sheen to it without looking too shiny. winderful lip balm. I think this is the best out of all of the other brands I have tried.

This stuff is so nice. You get quite a good amount of product for so cheap. Sheer red is a perfect color, I'm sure it would look good on most people. It has a nice thick, vaseline-like consistency- but it's firmer and not sticky like vaseline- and makes your lips so smooth and soft. I recently got Benefit's Benetint lipbalm, which is very similar to mark's kiss therapy in sheer red. Benefit's is a little softer going on, and has a little less pigment, and is much, MUCH more expensive. This is a great deal, definitely a staple, that I carry with me all the time. Oh yes, and it smells like roses. Yummy.

Will I repurchase this? A very resounding-YES! I LOVE this stuff! I have tins in all of my bags, next to my bed, in my car--everywhere because I hate to be without it! It makes my lips softer and smoother than any other balm I've tried and isn't at all waxy or greasy. I love the sheer red color too, its a perfect boost to my natural lips shade. The tin is adorable too. I recently heard that mark was coming out with a peach flavor too--I can't wait! And for the price, you just can't beat it!

Fantastic lip balm! Just the right consistency-not waxy, but not greasy & doesn't feel like it's going to slide right off. Beautiful fragrance-smells like honey and a faint, subtle rose scent. I'm not crazy about the tin but will excuse it because this seems to be too soft to be put in stick form. It gives me a slight amount of gloss, a hint of color, and best of all, it's super moisturizing for my lips. I'm getting the clear one, too, because I like to rub the excess into my cuticles. I got mine on ebay for only $2.50!

It's like a tinted version of Smith's Rosebud Salve, which I also love. I tried this yesterday as a gloss base, then applied the new Mark Glamazing Lip and Cheek Rouge as lipstick, in Retro Red. The combo provided a nice mellow red tint, that was moist-looking and -feeling, and fairly long-lasting. NB: I did use a clear lip liner before this combo to prevent bleeding, and I think it helped.

There is nothing wrong with the product. It's actually very nice, and a steal of a deal. But the tin container is the worst. Inconvenient and hard to get the lid off sometimes. The sheer red color is pretty and natural looking, feels nice. The tin helped me decide very quickly, I will not repurchase. It IS cute to look at, though. :(
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Stellar Product! Seriously, this is a Holy Grail product for me...it is a nice nice nice product, not sticky, not gooey, just fresh and moisturizing....
The tin is beeeautiful...gosh for $5? It is so cute!
Mark products RULE! Try this one out!

I love this lipgloss. My absolute favorite staple. Definitely HG status. It's a beautiful, sheer color, perfect for everyday, and it actually moisturizes my lips (which I've never found to the case in any colored lipbalm).

OMGoodness, I love this. I love the scent of roses so I always wanted to buy the Rosebud Salve thing but I never seemed to be at Sephora or when I was I would always forget. I bought this from a friend who is a mark rep along with the kissink in siren red. Anyways, I love this kiss therapy thing. It looks pretty firm but oh so perfect and unblemished in the little tin so I used my lip brush from my lip palette from shiseido. I love it, it leaves a very nice sheer red wash of colors on my lips not to mention it's very moisturizing. I had a hard time choosing between this and the original formula but I finally went with this one because I have dark lips anyways so the original formula would probably look like normal vaseline on my lips. Definately would repurchase if I ran out. Love the tin, mine isn't hard to open at all.

I LOVE IT. When I first got it, I thought the red was really red, but I was surprised and really happy that it only gave a slight red tint on my lips. It made my lips fell all soft too. It has this cute tin containter though sometimes it's a real pain to open. There's a lot though so it's bound to last for a long while. Sadly, I just lost mine but right now i'm currently repurchasing one.
