This review is from a while back but I recently purchased another shade to add to the collection. So I thought I would tweek this review a bit to fit the new purchase and how I feel about them at the moment. The Original review can be found here.
I have 3 different shades: Sugar frosting, Gumdrop and Peach parfait (Sugar frosting is completely used up now).
Price: About $10-11 on ebay.
Packaging: I love the packaging! it's so classy and makes the product look more expensive than it is. The lids on the lip butters all have different colours matching the colour of the product inside, wich makes it easier to find the colour you are looking if you have more than one in your makeup bag. The packaging seems sturdy and you can definately throw them in your purse and go.
Scent: A subtle sweet sugary vanilla frosting scent. Not that strong. Very pleasant and almost undetectable.
|L: Sugar frosting, R: Gumdrop|
These are not all that conditioning so I would not call them tinted balms, and they are a little too sheer to be lipsticks. The closest description I can give would be, glossy sheer lipstick.
Sugar frosting: Is a very sheer pink, almost nude looking with iridescent pearl shimmer. Super pretty. I can normally not wear baby pinks or nude pinks but this is sheer enough to still suit me.
Staying power: For a sheer toned, glossy lip product these seem to stay on quite well. They seem to last longer than lip balm and lipgloss. Certainly can't complain.
I'm still really fond of my lip butters, I just wish I didn't use them up so fast. I don't reach for them every single day and they are not a holy grail product. But I think they will become somewhat of a permanent item in my collection, adding a new colour every now and then.
I would still suggest that you check these babies out. Great bang for your buck. I could see myself trying more shades out in the future, but my lip collection is getting way too big so I need to use some things up first.
