I bought Antwerp while jumping on the coral bandwagon last spring because I loved it on youtuber Sam/Beautycrush. It's not really working for me, though. It's a nice color but it feels too drying.
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15

I'm obsessed with this stuff, I just got it in the new Sephora Give Me Some Lip sampler, which I grabbed in order to get the full size Tarte Lipsurgence. I am SO looking forward to my birthday now, because there is no way in hell I would ever purchase the full size! Who are they kidding??? This is a really sweet smelling, adorably packaged, creamy and luxurious GLORIFIED CHAPSTICK. Nice try, Fresh.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Lemon Drop SPF 15

I bought 4 of these in lemon, honeydew, strawberry, and passionfruit because I heard they were so great, and they looked so irresistibly cute! But I have to admit, I don't expect to purchase them again. Now that the novelty has worn off, I feel like they are too waxy to really moisturize my lips that well, the balm mostly sits on top of my lips, and some of the scents are sort of cloyingly sweet. I don't know that I actually like the packaging either, because they are lint magnets!
I have Berry Bold, it's sheer berry with no shimmer. I got it as a deluxe sample from a Sephora kit. I like the staying power, but I don't love the feeling of it. I don't think it's any better than E.L.F. Super Glossy Lip Shine w/ SPF 15, either, and that product is $1. So, it's a good gloss, but I'd go with the way cheaper dupe, although Lancome definitely has a larger range of colors.
So, I'm hoping to collect all of these. I have 9 at the moment, I added a picture w/ 8 swatches because I haven't photographed Sweet Tart yet. I love them, but I don't think they are moisturizing at all, and I only buy them when they are on sale (and I'm in the US.) However, the color range, packaging, and sheer lipbalm/lipstick hybrid gimmick has me raving about these... if you are looking to try them out, I recommend Berry Smoothie and Tutti Frutti.
Great price, ok looking packaging, a little greasy/slippery but I still like it a lot. I have Peach Kiss, and the only problem is the temptation to lick the balm off my lips. This stuff reminds me of the Lip Smackers I used when I was little.
I don't love this product simply because I always end up putting a lipgloss or lipstick over it eventually, and it's just too waxy to serve as a good base. But alone, it feels nice and tingly and smells awesome. It gives a good matte look to the lips too, if that's something you like. So, good product, just not perfect for me! I also think it's a bit pricey, I received a 2 pack as a gift but I wouldn't have bought it for myself.

This is a really nice subtle berry color. I have 9 of these lip butters & Berry Smoothie is the only one that I'll have to repurchase soon because I'm using it up way faster than other colors. Love it!

Very nice product. Slightly sticky, so I try to get a thin application... worth it for the lasting power, pretty shade, love the dual-wand design- the screw-on caps make it easy to throw in my bag without worrying about making a mess. I was actually looking for something more matte, but I'm really happy with this just the same.
Awesome product for a great price. I have Times Square, but usually refer to it as my Hello Kitty Red, because the bright and happy shade really reminds me of her bow. The polish does tend to chip off the tips of my nails, but honestly most of my polishes do, so that doesn't change my mind about this super pretty color. I definitely recommend this.
I love this color, it's super flattering and clean-looking. In fact, I love the color so much, I'm willing to suffer through the absolutely terrible application. I think the Essie polishes are seriously overpriced considering how clumpy and thick the formula feels. It seems like every time I buy a bottle, the formula goes from thick and smooth to thick and goopey in just a few uses. Oh well. It really is a fabulous color, and the bottles are really pretty lined up on my desk.
No problems so far! Great shades together, definitely needs a primer but then you're good to go, and at an awesome price! I also like the duo packaging, pretty cute and travels well.
Perfect! Every time I smell this scent, I feel transported by it all over again. I first tested at Sephora, loved it, but went home without it. The next morning I was doing laundry and noticed the scent lingering on the cardigan I'd worn the day before. I regretted leaving the perfume behind immediately. Incredibly authentic and lasting scent, perfect gift for the sentimental New England girl.
