The packaging is simple but thin a sleek so will fit perfectly in your handbag. They claim to leave a 'sheer luminescent colour' to the lips.
They come in a tube and look like a normal lip balm. They apply easily and have a minty scent to them which is very pleasant, they do give a little tingle to the lips when applied but this doesn't last long. The colours I have are 'Rhubarb' which is a pink toned red, very much on the berry side and 'Watermelon' which is a pink with a slight purple tone to it. Out of the two Watermelon has more of a shimmer to it.
|L-R Watermelon, Rhubarb|
I really like both shades, as you can see they have a nice colour payoff, they also last very well and are as moisturising as a good lip balm. I actually like wearing Watermelon under a matte lipstick which could be a little drying on it's own and it looks very nice.
I would really recommend these if you're looking for a good tinted lip balm because these are definitely some of the best i've tried, especially the shade Rhubarb which is probably my favourite.
