Fantastic smell, and not drying to the skin, what more can you ask?! Have I mentioned the smell is great? :-) I wish it lingered on the skin longer, but then I suppose that's what the pink grapefruit body butter is for...The packaging is fine, nice and functional. The gel is a great pick me up for both am and pm - will repurchase over and over again!
I'm obviously in a minority here, but I love the color! My lips are too thin to get away with dark lipstick, so this is a great substitute. The color is really not that dark, IMHO. I'd describe it as a soft brick red, and it doesn't really have shimmer, as such, but that's another thing I like about it. Staying power isn't great (otherwise it would get a 5), and you can't twist it _back_into the tube (how silly is that!), But apart from that, this is fantastic, and I'll definitely repurchase when my tube runs out (soon now...)
Love this! Love the cooling sensation, and it does moisturise my lips (not all lip bams do, actually). The little pot has the cutest packaging, and it lasts a very long time. It's cheap, it works, it looks nice (in a slighly industrial looking kind of way). That works for me...

This is BAD! And I don't mean bad as in good. Balls up when you apply it, and when you somehow manage to spread it around enough to have a workable base, it shows no redness concealing qualities whatsoever. Cheap to buy, but who cares if it doesn't work?
