This rich, glossy balm hydrates lips while delivering color payoff with a lipstick-like intensity. Its unique formulation blends waxes and oils to protect and hydrate lips while ensuring long-lasting, non-sticky wear.
When I first opened this, I assumed it’d be similar to MAC’s Lip Conditioner that’s in the little tub- it has a similar feel to a somewhat softened chapstick, but not completely soft. This took me by surprise because it’s definitely super soft, it has a thick jelly sort of feel. The cap is a little stubborn too, it doesn’t want to go on as easily as I feel it should. When applied, this has a similar feel to Vaseline, and has a super glossy look on the lips. The color isn’t overly orangey as it looks in the pot, either!
As for smell and taste, the smell of the balm is a nice, sweet apple scent that isn’t overpowering. There isn’t much taste, but if you to happen to lick your lips its a very, very subtle apple taste.
This is available for $9 from Sephora.
