Ummmm are we being serious here? This waxy lip balm is so overpriced I can't believe it sells as much as it does. Is this one of those gigs where people buy it because it's expensive and that's the appeal?
It makes my lips peel and dry out, if I somehow make the mistake of licking my lips and taste this it makes my tongue go numb and the taste is awful, though this usually doesn't happen because I find that this balm simply 'sits' on top of your lips, like a waxy residue and then comes off the first second you bite into anything or take a sip of coffee. Also - it's easy to use up a tube of this stuff so fast. It does smell good and if you apply it to your lips and make sure to not eat, drink or talk too much it does give your lips a nice sheen. So there - I'll give it two lippies but that's all it'll get from me.

I'm a lip product junkie so I have tried my fair share of lip balms. I bought my original duo before they were a Sephora Bday gift. It was cheaper than buying a full balm, but still pricey. It's one thing for the product to be slightly overpriced, but this lip balm is truly no better than any of the $5 or less ones I have tried such as EOS, Burt's Bees, etc. It's a fine balm, but it does not stay on very much. I like the smell. The packaging is lovely. However, the metal packaging means it is more conducive to heat. My biggest gripe with these balms was they melted very easily and as a result, bent out of shape. One of the balms split in the tube and I had to forcibly stick it back on. In the end, I threw it out. I gave my Sephora gift duo to a friend who admits to not being knowledgeable about beauty products and she even found it worse than Chapstick in terms staying on the lips. All in all, I regret buying this product and there are far better lip balms for far less.

Packaging is nice - love the screw on/off top, which makes it hard to lose. It smells great as well. But that's pretty much it. My lips do get a quick shine but then it rubs off on anything my lips touch. I prefer something that actually soothes my lips, is long lasting - which this is not.
I got received this as part of the duo gift from Sephora but I would not actually go out and spend money on it.

I also got the mini two set as a gift from Sephora. I wasn't really sure what the hype was all about, and to be honest I'm still not quite sure what the hype is.. The packaging is lovely! I think the mini's are the perfect size and I love the screw on top. The texture of this is nice - at first. My lips felt really smooth and soft, but then it kinda felt like the product just sat on my lips and didn't really do much. The scent smells lemon-y, but is borderline janitorial floor cleaner. Overall, these aren't bad - just not the best product for my lips! It is quite pricey for the big size, too.

Like many of you, I received 2 minis for my birthday; one in clear and the other in rosé. Due to the hype surrounding this product, I couldn't be more thrilled to receive this as my birthday insider. Unfortunately, it did not live up to its hype.
I'd like to start by saying, I'm from Canada. For the province in which I live, it's not uncommon to receive snowfall in May. The air is very cool, lots of wind and due to this weather, it is important that my lip balm works well. This lip balm did not moisturize well, it was really quite mediocre. There are many other lip balms that are equally as average for a quarter of the price. I felt that the balm just sat on top of my lips and didn't sink in or actually moisturize.
The positives would be the scent, the colour of rosé, the spf, and I loved the screw on top. However, at the price of $26CAD, I would not purchase it. It's main purpose is to moisturize and I found it did not provide adequate moisture.
My favourite remains The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick :)

I got the full size of the clear after using up my birthday sample from Sephora. I originally loved it because of the spf 15, and not many lip products offered that at the time. A lot of brands are now jumping on the spf bandwagon though.
It works very well for me and lasts throughout the day if I don't eat or drink. The packaging feels smooth and "special-feeling" (don't laugh) because of the unique screw top.
Not sure if I would repurchase since it's quite expensive and there are drugstore equivalents out there. However, on it's own - it's a wonderful product!

Like previous reviewers, I received this as a birthday gift from Sephora. They sent me a mini duo in the original formula and the tinted one in rose. The texture of this lip treatment is wonderful. It feels like silky butter on your lips. The tinted one isn't my color so I gave it away, but the original formula is perfect for chapped lips or to wear over/under lipsticks or lipstains. I love the lemon scent which is similar to L'Occitane's verbena fragrance. The reason I removed a star is because it doesn't last very long and you need to reapply in a couple hours. I also have Dior's Creme de Rose lip balm which seems to last longer than this product, however I enjoy the texture and scent more with this one.

I got the mini rose one and the mini clear one in the brown tube as a birthday present from Sephora. I'm a huge lip product junkie and I really liked both of these products (as did all my friends). First of all, these are really moisturizing. The consistency is kind of like Vaseline as a solid, and it has the longest lasting power of all the lip products I've ever used. I like that they're in mini tubes- it's super cute. The normal one is huge- I actually don't like the look of it- and way too expensive at twenty-something dollars.
The clear one (Sugar) smells lemony. I like using it before bed (even though it has SPF 15) because it's so moisturizing. The other one, Rose, is a really nice, natural shade of pink that looks good on most skin tones. It matches my natural lip color pretty well, so it gives me a subtle boost of color without looking overdone. I don't particularly like the scent of roses, but it's light so I can deal with it.
The only thing about these is that since they're so soft, you have to be careful when twisting them up. My friend dropped hers and it broke completely; I left mine in the sun for a really long time and almost broke it as well.

I seriously do not understand the hype surrounding this product. I think it's because Sephora keeps pushing it on customers. It is moisturizing but only for about a couple of hours, and then not only do you need to reapply, but your lips are a flaky mess! I tried the Dior Addict lip balm and that was amazing. So for someone in the market for a HE lip balm don't waste your money on this. There are comparable and much more efficient balms at the drugstore.

I got this as a free sample from Sephora and it is awesome! my lips tend to be very dry and peel sometimes even in the summer. I go to a dermatologist and got a prescription balm which didn't work. None of the blistex, chapstick etc work. This one does, I will repurchase when I finish it. lasts a long time.
