I received this as part of a kit in "Love" and let me preface, that I am pretty cynical about lip balms. I have about a million open at any one time and none seem to do the 'ahmazing' things they promise. Well, this one actually does, although it has a few drawbacks I'll get into. Pros-really plumping and conditioning (I put it on after not putting on any lip balm for 2 weeks and my lips looked great in 15 minutes), organic, nice subtle flavor, little bit of sparkle but not obnoxious Cons-packaging seems cute at first, but is really annoying. can't pull it out and reapply, and seem to always get the top smushing down into the lip gloss if not careful, expensive ($18 for a little pot?!)
I picked up Raspberry Pie today and I love it. I couldn't get over how smooth it was-very comparable to Milani's HD lipcolor. One thing I hate about lipsticks is when they look great, but look like crap once you eat/drink or do anything. This particular shade (I can't speak for the others) leaves a super gorgeous natural-looking stain after you eat. I love it!

Absolutely gorgeous color that is my new HG MLBB shade. It feels a bit waxy on the lips, but looks so polished and pretty on. I have very pigmented lips but it gives me a nice look with one swipe. It's also buildable, which you could use for a night out. As for the packaging, I personally am OBSESSED. When I first saw it and felt it, it just feels rich and like something that should be savored.
