I had wanted this lip balm in Marshmallow for quite a while and had heard how wonderful it was from many, but when I finally got my hands onto it I found it very underwhelming. I bought it from a local boutique in town which is never the cheapest, this product was very expensive, perhaps the mark up price, but I paid almost $30 for it, still craving it though, I went ahead and bought it.
The texture was very paste like and even a tad grainy like a poorly made home-made lip balm, and the scent and taste was not at all how I had read it described.
The actual lip balm itself was not this wonderfully mousturising, smooth product. I found it very poor quality. My lips are hardly ever chapped or in desperate need of hydration so I was not expecting a heavy duty lip saver in pretty packaging, just an every day lip balm. And though a lovely tin, it is tricky to open.
Now because my experience with this is pretty much the complete opposite of all the other reviews, I had thought that I might have just had an unfortunate bad batch.
I did purchase this over five years ago, only ever using it now and then incase of a change of mind, so plenty of time to come to a conclusion about it, but I personally would not buy this again.

I love this lip balm but the tin is really hard to open.

I don't care for lip balms that come in tin form, but I got this In a monthly subscription box and I am in love. I've heard of this brand from a beauty website before and I've seen it at ulta, but nothing ever really stood out to me. I am reviewing for the lip macaron in French vanilla. The smell of this definitely smells like vanilla and reminds me of a scrumptious cookie. My favorite part is that even though this is in a tin, this is very creamy when I apply with my ring ringer or index finger. It moisturizes my lips and makes them super soft, but I do have to reapply after a couple hours. This is around ten bucks so it isn't that bad. I might repurchase just because I love the scent and moisturizing properties, but I have a lot of lip balms I need to finish up first.

I brought the 'Lychee Flower' flavour. It comes in a sturdy tin, white in colour and goes on clear. (No white cast on lips). The scent is really nice and unique. It's a bit floral-like yet sweet from the berry, which is unusual for me since alot of my lip-balms are of the fruity or mint kind. As for moisture, they are just like a regular balm in my opinion and are fairly moisturizing. Probably not the best solution if you have super chapped lips, but good for maintaining smooth lips. I like that it has a nice glossy finish and thin consistency, but does not feel greasy. (Can use over lipsticks if you wanted I guess). The new packaging is cute and pretty sturdy, plus you get alot of product per tin. They have interesting flavours from this line such as French Vanilla, Peach Nectar, Blood Orange, Rosebud, Sorbet, Apples, Passionflower and Cassis Noir. Would buy again as they make cute gifts. :)

This is a delightful lip balm--very moisturizing and not sticky, glides on smoothly and looks nice alone or with other lipsticks or lip balms.
I have it in lychee flower, which tastes nice, but I'd like to try some of the other flavors.

I am sucker for these wonderful little tins containing lip balms with scents that is absolutely dreamy. I have used up two tins, Peach Nectar and Violetta, and I am in love with most of the other scents too. But not only do they look good and smell nice, the actual lip balm also works great. It's not sticky or greasy and I use these both winter and summer as it's light enough to use in the summer, but still moisturizing enough for most of the winter.

The only reason why I purchased these (plural - I have them in Lychee, Violetta, Cassis Noir, Apples, Blood Orange, Rosebud, Peach Nectar, Green Tea and Honeysuckle) is because of their lovely packaging. I am a sucker for those little pretty tins. That said, those pretty little tins are a nightmare to open, especially when your fingers are already *sticky*.
Indeed, they are way more expensive than your regular sticks but they do last you all through winter and more. I love the scent, they are really a packful and they do last a long while. Reapplication is usually very minimal and they gives your lips a lovely shine too.
I like Apples and Lychee Flower the most because I feel that they have the strongest but very pleasant scent. For men, go with Violetta, it's less *perfumy* than all the others.
Another plus point is these products are not tested on animals and paraben free, if you are into eco friendly products. But they do contain petrolatum which can be a turn off for some.

This is definitely expensive BUT oh my gosh, the packaging and the scent is just heavenly. It's so lovely and moisturizing and it has this very smooth texture. You should try it. And the packaging is so pretty that it's a treat to use.

The type I can apply on a windy day and not worry about my hair sticking to my lips and smearing over my face- we all know how irritating that is.
Melts into lips, DIVINE scent ( I have Lychee flower-baby pink and gold tin) lovely consistency- not to hard, not to soft. Makes my lips baby soft, even when at their most chapped and sorry. Looks gorgeously natural when on with natural blended lipliner.
The tin is just so luxurious, I feel special every time I get it out to use it:) Throughout time though it becomes difficult to open, my Mum complained about the same thing.
Doesn't feel like it sits on the lips, feels like it's really absorbing into them without disappearing on you afterwards.
Edit: Has petroleum in it, so do not use anymore, just love it sitting on my shelf and use in lip emergencies.

I swear by this product. Out of all the lip balms/chapsticks/ and salves I have used, this by far is the best. I got in marshmallow and bought it in Marshalls for three bucks. I just lost it yesterday and I freaked! So I went back to Marshalls today to look for it, but it was gone! So to make my point, this product rocks!!!!
