I'm a coffee-addict, so I bought this right away when I saw it. It smelled like a vanilla latte, so the smell was delicious. It tasted like nothing - no waxy taste, no flavor, I can't complain. You have to use it a few times before it gets really nice and smooth to apply. It's pretty pricy - though I would buy again. Unfortunately I used up my tube and haven't found another since :/

This was an OK product. I didn't notice anything revolutionary about the formulation. Once it ran out I did not buy another.

I do not use this a lot but i LOVE IT. It is very conditioning, and when i pair it with Vanilla Sugar it makes a GREAT nude. I remember the first color I paired it with was True Gold because I thought it would be more sheer. Maybe i picked up too much but my lips were GOLD. I was like OOPSIS!! But it's really awesome!

When I first purchased these ( I got two), I really loved them and never mind that I had to apply them thru out the day. I still have one in my purse and the other one I think in my bathroom cabinet. I wasn't too found of the coffee smell but Leslie said that it's suppose to give your lips a rush first thing in the morning because of the coffee. I don't know that if it did that to my lips. I also try dipping it in the many BE powders I have but didn't like any of the colors on my lips. It has shea butter so I know it's good for your lips. After a while I strayed and looked for other alternative since these really didn't do anything for me. There so-so and will use them as a back up but it sounds like they will go bad after prolong hibernation. I gave it 2 lippies because of the shea butter and will keep them as back up.

I love lip balms. This does not disappoint. I bought it from QVC for a steal and I am in love with it. I use it all day on makeup free weekends, I dip it in glimmers for a lip gloss and under my lipstick as a primer during the week. I just ordered another to keep in my purse. It has a cocoa buttery smell to it. Buy this!

I liked this coffee scented lipbalm. It's super moisturizing and yummy. I never bothered to repurchase it though because there are other cheaper, better alternatives.

Overall, this is a decent product. It's more expensive than your average drugstore lipbalm, but it does contain a few antioxidants, and doesn't contain any irritating ingredients like mint or citrus oils.
The scent is pleasant...pretty much vanilla. The packaging is about as plain as it gets...no points for originality there.
As far as function goes, it works as well as any wax-based balm...no better or worse than the comptetition, but I like the size of the tube, the convenience of not having to get my fingers dirty like you would with the squeeze-style balms, and the smell is nice, so I will probably repurchase.

I have tried a lot of lip balms and this by far is my favorite. The coffee smell is great. This stuff stays on well and really softens my lips. one tube lasts forever and I have bought 3-4 tubes. Definitely worth every penny.

The thing I like most about this is the packaging. It's thicker than most small tubes of lip balm, which makes it easy to locate in my bag and design of the tube is easy to use. I'm not crazy about the coffee flavor - I could do without it. The moisturizing is decent, though I do have to reapply to keep my lips from being dry. I like that it has shea butter rather than mineral oil or waxes. But honestly, Burts Bees works just as well at 1/4 of the price.

I wanted to like this but found it to be very, dry and hard to apply.It's been sitting in a bag under my sink for a year. It also made my lips dry. I prefer Chapstick Naturals to this any day.

I love the smell of this product and the cooling sensation on your lips but the moisurizing results are not so great.

I bought this because I love all lip balms etc...Coffee smell is great and thats about it. It does not glide, very waxy and somewhat gritty. It doesn't taste very good either. Like plastic, which is unfortunate because so many other products taste and smell so good. Would not buy again. Like another reviewer said, I would rather take my $8 and get 2 tubes of Burt's Bees.

Loved (almost) everything about it, from the light coffee scent to the way that it softened my lips with no greasiness. My lips never dried out after using this. My only big problem was the slight grittiness. (What was that?) And the label peeled off rather quickly, collecting dirt which then rubbed off on my hands. Enjoyed it though, used it all and am working myself up to buying a gritty $8 lip balm once again :)

I'm an avid lip balm buyer. Anything lips, I buy. This, however, was a mistake. It's not at all moisturizing. it doesn't go on smooth, You know how when you first get a tube of chapstick it's still in the shape of the tube until you use it and it glides on smoother? Well, to me, this kinda never molded down. It's super waxy, and I feel like when I use something like this it leaves white marks behind. I guess it kind of smells like coffee, and not the good kind I might add, the cheap grocery store brand lol, but it tastes awful. Packaging is okay, but In my opinion, yeah it's a nice shape if you're going to be dipping it in powders for color but to me that just doesn't seem sanitary to then dip a brush in it and get that waxy shit on your face. lol I never tried it but I don't plan on it either.

This is a nice product. I really like the small and te taste of this. I would say it could be a bit more moisturizing though. The design is ideal to use with the minerals because the balm is in stick form and this makes it easy to dip into your mineral pots and then apply as a lip balm with color.

Bought this recently and I love this!! It is a thick balm, but it has shea butter and other good stuff in it. I do dip it in a couple of my glimmer and glimpses, and the colors are pretty. Does take a bit of practice to get it to look good and not clumpy, but overall, a great product and I will repurchase!

I love Bare Escentuals products, but this l/b leaves alot to be desired. Love the coffee scent, and it does moisturize decently, but this balm has no "slip" to it & seems a tad gritty and dry on the lips. My wintertime-dry lips just need way more moisture than this offers - Carmex for $1 works better for me, though the scent isnt so lovely!

I don't usually like waxy balms, but the smell of this one made me enjoy using it for a time. I took a hint from the Bare Minerals how-to DVD and dipped it in my Glee All-Over Face color for a lovely pink look to my lips. I wouldn't use it as a balm alone (I much prefer Kiehl's or my Rosebud Salve) but it got too messy to carry around my bare Minerals powders. I won't buy it again.

Hmm..I like this product. However, i dont LOVE it. I'd much rather spend my 8 bucks on 2 tubes of Burts Bees rather than this product. First off, the packaging is pretty good. However, since the tube is longer, you'd imagine you'd be getting more product right? But noo...i actually felt like i was getting a less amount of balm in this product than i would get in a normal chapstick tube such as Burts Bees.
The smell is delicious, and i really dont mind the taste of it...its not supposed to have a coffee taste but it kinda taste like....a cocoa butter. The color of the balm is an off white. I found myself reapplying this often though. In my opinion, there was no waxy consistancy. Its an OK product....but i prefer a cheaper chapstick over this.. like burts bees or carmex spearmint!
