This is an excellent lipstain for the the price point. It stays on for longer than I expected it to, the color was true to the packaging and the tube/marker lasted much longer than I thought it would (I used it quite frequently). My only complaint would be that they don't make it in enough colors!
This was one of my favorite lip plumpers ever! I am so sad that they discontinued it. It is a little on the pricey side ($20 a tube last I bought it) but it is a "little dab'll do ya" type product. You do not have to use much at all the feel the plumping effects, but if you want to layer it on thick for that super glossy look, you can. I wish they would bring it back! I do not like the new"custom color" one that took it's place.
The plumping factor on this product is not bad...not as good as the plumper they discontinued. The custom color is a joke. There is no "custom" to it...it goes on clear and then turns HOT pink. I have even tested this not on my lips at all...just on a tissue, still turns hot pink. On my sister it turns the exact same color it turns on me and we are NOT the same skin tone. I wish the would bring back the old clear EXTREME plumper in the silver brush tube...that stuff was AWESOME!
Classic Cherry ChapStick is my go-to lip balm. I have at least one in each purse, one in my laptop bag, one on my nightstand and one in my makeup bag. (Had to stop leaving one in my car because it WILL MELT if it gets too warm.) The flavor/scent is good, it stays on well. You can put it over a lipstain and it will moisturize while giving a slight sheen. Perfect lip balm!
I have used Burt's Bees in the past and not been terribly impressed...but everyone goes on and on about how wonderful it is, so I decided to give it another shot. Still not impressed. The initial cherry flavor isn't bad, but the beeswax has a less than pleasant aftertaste. The worst part is after using it for a couple of days my lips are even drier than before and started to peel. :( Maybe I am just sensitive to one of the ingredients, but i will not be buying Burt's Bees again.
Best Carmex product yet! I have very sensitive lips and this balm doesn't bother me at all. The stick is so much more convenient than the tub and less sticky than the tube. I love the Cherry flavor and as always with Carmex, it is extremely effective. Absolutely would recommend this product to others.
I love Carmex for it's healing properties, but have always felt like the smell was a bit medicinal. Also, the little tub makes it messy to apply and seems less than sanitary. This tube version has the same great effectiveness but without the mess. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is the flavor, it is still very medicinal...I much prefer their Cherry flavor to the original.
I love Carmex...best medicated lip balm ever! Only problem was that it tasted/smelled super medicinal. I'm SO glad they finally started making flavors! The tube is also so much easier than the little tub. This falls into the category of "Not your grandmother's Carmex".
Got this one on clearance after Christmas...it is not bad, I like the flavor and the slim packaging. However; the SPF does leave a slight aftertaste that you get with most SPF lipbalms and like most Softlips products I have tried it doesn't stay on very long. It's not a bad product to have as a backup, but I would not buy again.
