I absolutely love this balm. I discovered it in college and have been using it for almost 10 years. I think others have covered it's positives pretty well, so I'll discuss some things I disagree with. I think the color is perfect. I look really good in orangey glosses and the tint in this gives me just the amount of color I'm looking for (granted, I am very pale, my lips are almost paler than my skin, so this may have something to do with it). It's not extremely bright orange, but the color is obvious without being overly so. I've also tried the Raspberry, though I prefer the Mango with my coloring. I'm also surprised people are complaining about the lack of taste/scent. Part of the reason that I buy higher-end makeup is to avoid the nasty flavors you find with cheaper products. Flavored glosses nauseate me and give me a headache, not to mention men tend to hate them. I would be extremely disappointed if they changed their formula. I wouldn't buy a scented version. Oh, and a tip for when the tube is almost empty-- put it in your pants pocket applicator side down (lid on of course). Any gloss sticking to the sides melts down and pools in the applicator reservoir. I always get quite a few extra uses out of what appear to be empty tubes this way.
