I love the colours but the peppermint oil in the formula burns my lips after a while. I can never wear these for more than 1 day at a time because my lips need time to recover. They will often peel and a slight rash will form around my lips if I wear it too often.

Update: these have sadly been discontinued :( I now have to search for a new HG lipstick *sigh*

I've used this in the shade Sultry the most, and I love the color against my cool toned skin. It looks like a raspberry mauve on me, and it applies evenly and is only the tiniest bit drying. It doesn't totally last through eating and drinking, but it's easy to reapply …

The bottom line: this balm is super-pigmented and lasts fairly well, but will dry your lips out. I bought an adorable coral-nude colour (255 - 'Enchanting,) which would really suit warmer and neutral skin undertones. My trusty balm is going strong over a year later, and I use it for a natural look. If that's your kind of thing, you won't be disappointed!

I'm pretty happy with this balm. It's a good buy for only about $8. It doesn't dry out my lips yet somehow lasts for hours, and it's not as tricky to use as liquid lipstick. Only gripe I have is it contains peppermint oil - that's a skin irritant I'd rather avoid. And the Fiery color, which is supposed to be a brick red, goes purple on me. Not many color choices …Read more

I love this so much - I bought it in Unapologetic which is a bright pink shade. The lip crayon is very pigmented and it doesn't take a lot of time to build up some colour. I love how it doesn't feel as heavy on your lips as lipstick - I can barely feel it there! It also doesn't rub off as easily even when I'm eating!

Have this in #255 enchanting, a muted beige-pink. I like wearing this to work or as a soft daytime lip colour since it adds colour without being distracting. It has a matte finish as the name suggests, but not like a liquid lipstick or anything. It looks like a light translucent coat of colour, kind of reminds me of a chiffon appearance as the texture is like that semi-transparent, soft look …Read more

My every day colour is honey I always have this in my hand bag, there are a few shades that don't suit me but all the ones I wear I can fault, they stay put and stain for a good few hours through eating and drinking and I don't find them that drying on lips like a lot of matte lipstick can be, price wise I find them affordable and they are usually on offer in boots or Superdrug 3 for 2 …Read more

I love this so much. I have this in sultry, it's such a beautiful colour. It is matte but doesn't leave your lips dry and cracking. I find that applying too much of this accentuates the flakiness of my dry lips. However using just one coat and smearing it over with my finger is the perfect method of application for me. I'm left with the last bit of product and it's dropping …Read more

Been using this ever since I started using makeup - I have the shade in Sultry which looks like a mauvey nude on the tube but looks strangely red on me.

The best part about this lip product is the texture - way creamier than a regular lip balm and less chalky than a lipstick. The balm creates an even and creamy look on the lips.

I have no complaints really about this matte …

I use these as a cream blush too! I have sultry and elusive. It has not irritated my sensitive skin. What I do is put some on my ring fingers, rub them together to warm the product, and then pat it into the skin. Don't panic, it'll look bright at first but then blend nicely after a few minutes into a "glow from within" flush. It also lasts all day and it a great alternative to …Read more
