I have this in Berry, which is a medium pink.This tinted lip balm adds a lot more color than other "tinted" lip balms I've used. I usually expect a lip balm to be very sheer, but this adds more than just a hint of color, which is nice when I want my lips to have some sort of pigment to them but don't feel like doing the careful application of a lipstick.It feels nice on my lips and moisturizing. However the staying power is not great, but I think that's to be expected with the color of any tinted lip balm.There is a very light scent but definitely nothing overpowering/lingering. Barely noticeable.I would buy this again because it's convenient for those lazy makeup days.

Obsessed! I bought a bunch of these on a whim when they were clearanced out for around $1 a piece at Ulta. Didn't have high expectations, since the testers didn't look like they were very hydrating. However, I've fallen in love with the Rosey shade! It's a gorgeous shade of sheer, glowy, pinkish red on me. It makes my sallow NC20 skin look more vibrant. I do wish it would last longer on me, but I can't complain.

I have this in a couple of colors now (Golden Pink, and Berry) and the colors for a balm are actually quite opaque and quite flattering (NC20 skintone). Perfect for days you are rushing out the door for groceries or errands or just want something light on the lips. Easy to apply, do not even need a mirror, and easy to carry, can even just pop one in your wristlet, wallet or pocket. Does not feel 'greasy' on the lips and does not move all around like some balms can. Will likely pick up a couple more shades. These actually even last a fair amount of time for a balm, like 2 to 3 hours on me (which on me, is a great amount of time). These, for me, make my lips look and feel soft & moisturized. They just, imho, behave like a good lip balm should. Glad these worked out for me, because the colors are pretty, very natural and flattering, the shades can easily be built-up.....I def want more!!

i love the low maintenance of tinted balms, but could never quite find the right color that didn't clash with my pale olive skin (too pink) or look too brown (hello, 90's). i bought this lip balm in "brownie" (rose w/slight brown undertone, a good mlbb for me) and "rosey" (rose with deep pink tones). they are both pretty subtle with one coat. nicely pigmented, so 2-3 swipes give noticeable color. the scent is barely detectable, which is great if you're not a fan of that mint/menthol tingle lip balms typically have.

This lip balm is okay. It didn't do much for me and wasn't moisturizing. There were some good things about it, however I didn't like it much. Pros: great color pay off, nice packaging (I like that I was in a tube, and smooth texture. Cons: dried my lips out (started peeling after use, don't know why :( ), very thick (feels like a lipstick), slight weird taste (very slight). It also had a smell (very light), but I'm not sure whether I like the smell or not. Overall I didn't like it because I felt like it was a lipstick in a lip balm tube and it dried my lips out. The color rosy is gorgeous though. Some may like it however it just didn't work for me.

Just as good as Burts Bees Lip Balm! It is alot cheaper tho! It gives you just enough of a tint, not too much color.

I have this in Champagne and it's pretty good, but nothing amazing. Champagne is a shimmery but not glittery or frosty nude that looks pretty and has nice shine. The pigmentation is pretty decent for a light-colored tinted balm. The formula isn't super moisturizing, nor does it last very long, but it does the job as a balm in a pinch. Any moisture it does infuse doesn't last, either. I personally think the Neutrogena tinted balms are far superior in replenishing and maintaining lips' moisture.

I got this in Cotton Candy, and have had it for a couple months. It is sheer. You can taste the wax in the balm. If you put too much on it tastes disgusting. Won't buy again in any flavor/color.

I really like this lip balm. It's not super moisturizing, but it does make my lips feel a little more soft when I put this on. It feel more of a lipstick than a lip balm, though. I own the color Rosey, and I've noticed that after a while it leaves a bit of a stain on your lips. I actually like this, because when the color wears off my lips won't look cracked and pale, they'll have a little bit of color to them. It's pretty sheer, but at the same time you can tell it's on my lips after just one swipe. A couple more and the color is really bright and pigmented. I do have one complaint: The screw on the bottom that you twist to get more product is very loose on my tube, so if I put this in my purse, it will twist around a lot and I open the cap to a very smashed-looking lip balm. Otherwise, it's a great everyday tinted lip balm.

I'm pretty pale and my lips generally take on pigment very well. But every now and then, my lips tend to pale out and tend to make me look like a listless zombie. So I generally need some kind of lip color on a daily basis to give them a bit more life and flush. Enter this product! I have little complaints about it and what it says it can do. It imparts color, imparts moisture, and stays on my lips quite well. In fact, as the moisture absorbs into my lips, it leaves a pleasant stain (about 1-2 hours after initial application) that is quite pretty. The only problem I really have with this is that it is pigmented. Like sheer-lipstick or lip butter type of pigmented. Unlike general tinted lip balms, a noticeable amount of color comes off when you wipe your lips or drink out of a coffee cup. I still keep this around for when I want something a bit more vibrant, but I'm afraid I've conceded that I can no longer use it as a "lip balm" and keep it more as a "sheer lip color" in my makeup back.
