Customer Feedback:

color is very natural. Feels good on my lips. Smells great...."

"...quickly turns into waxy clumps...."

"...a little shinier than I'd like--the shine makes it look a little unnatural. It also wears away way faster than most lip balms or lipsticks...."

"...goes on smoothly and the color lasts...."

"...glides on in a smooth, thin layer, and is not thick, sticky, or goop-y.... gives your lips a refreshingly cool peppermint tingle...."

"...Light, healing balm with subtle color. Not as heavy as a lipstick and not sticky like a lip gloss...."
