Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE - virtually perfect
I own a ton of sheer lipsticks and balms, but I think I've finally found my holy grail lip balm! I have dry skin and like to have really moisturized lips. I'm allergic or sensitive to a lot of plant-based ingredients but not to lanolin, so this is awesome, and definitely the best I've found for the price! The plain 101 ointment is great too, but this cap opens and closes more easily/comfortably for use throughout the day, and the Perfect Nude is seriously my lip color (medium pink, and rarely pale) but better. This goes on glossy-satiny and not sticky and then sinks in for a gorgeous satiny finish that lasts a long time for a balm. No scent, no smell, just a beautiful and pleasant texture. Because of the lack of taste or fragrance, I actually prefer this to some of the comparably hydrating but more expensive balms I own (bite agave, nuxe reve de miel). I love to use this with the mlbb bite lip pencil in shade 010 for a more polished and longer-lasting nude look.
The one caveat is that this formula/packaging combo requires a bit of thought to use without mishap. The formula is very thick when it's cool, and too much will spurt out of the large hole if you squeeze the tube too hard without letting it warm up in your hands first (30 seconds to a minute should do it). I also recommend holding the tube against your lips as you squeeze to help prevent this problem. When the spurt happened to me, I used the excess over my bb cream as a surprisingly long-lasting blush, glossy highlighter, and eye gloss multiple for a really pretty and fresh nude-pink monochrome look. Those with oily skin or darker skin tones may not have luck using it this way, but I'm dry and really fair, so I love it and will definitely use this as a multiple again! I fully intend to repurchase, and will be getting the Rhubarb soon for when I feel like going darker/brighter and pinker.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good color, poor texture
The color is a universally flattering nude. Upon application, the color goes on okay but it does feel thick. Over a few a hours the color fades, loses shine and you get a gross rim of build up around the center of your mouth where your top and bottom lip meet. It's gross! I have keep on checking that the building is not there yet making me look like I didn't wash my face or clean my mouth in the morning. I thought this was because my lips are so dry but...isn't this supposed to be moisturizing??
Reviewed by 67 customers Actually moisturizes my lips
Chani from Arrakis, CO
I live and was born in Colorado so I've always had chronically dry lips. My unresearched impression is most lip balms work mainly as waxy barriers to stop moisture from escaping (with maybe a few ingredients for putting moisture back in) so I've always gotten limited good out of them. This is the first product I've tried that actually seems to moisturize my lips rather than fighting a losing battle. As a beauty product, however, it's like a bad lip gloss. This may have something to do with the fact that when I purchased it last winter it was frozen solid by the time I brought it in, causing some separation, but the pigment bits come out in blobs (though they can be smoothed out). I love to leave it on for a few hours before wiping it off and applying lipstick, though. It also allows me to skip a lip scrub as in the process of moisturizing it makes the chapped bits separate off my lips without fuss.
Love the balm!
golabjamun from Dallas,TX
This product is quite nice and definitely one of the most hydrating balm out there. It has clean ingredients as well which is a good pro. The shade Rhubarb is wonderful and I want to find a lip product that is that exact shade because it's simply PRETTY. I docked a star because I hate the applicator and the lid and the oozing sticky mess that this kind of packaging causes.
Kels from Tn
This stuff smells & looks amazing. I love it, my lips are always chapped & it helps them a lot while adding a tint! I plan on buying it again & in different shades too.
Alex from CT
Best tinted lip balm on the market, all the other brands I've tried look like lipstick and look ridiculous on me when I have no makeup on (which is when I'll wear lip balm). I religiously buy the perfect nude shade, stays on my lips an impressive amount of time and my lips feel so moisturized and healthy. I hope they never stop making this
Perfect for work
Rita from Cambridge
The balm is so hydrating, I just love everything about it. It gives my lips a nice color (I got the nude shade) and I have very fair skin. I wear it to work, it just looks so natural yet eye catching. Love it!!
Love the color and feel!
Emmykrishe from Michigan
I saw the original of this lip balm mentioned on a YouTube video and came to check it out. When I found the tinted version, I decided it would be fun to try. I'm not a lipstick-wearing type person so this is perfect for me. The nude color is awesome, adds just a little pop but nothing too fancy. And it's not really too shiny as a lip gloss, just right. I'm still hoping that it helps my lips to be a little less dry overall, but I probably just need to use it a little more, so far I've only really put it on once a day or so.
Love this < 3
Cora from California
I got this in a sample from my last purchase and I love this stuff! I received the Perfect Nude color. I have a light complexion with neutral coloring. Blonde hair and blue eyes and this is a gorgeous color against my complexion. The texture isn't sticky so hair doesn't get stuck. Going to buy the full size and try another color! Would recommend!
Best product ever
Kirby from Tacoma
This is the absolute best lip product for anyone who struggles with dry cracked lips. Super hydrating, while covering any lip imperfections, it's the only thing that doesn't make my mouth look crusty. The color I chose is so perfectly natural. I want to buy all this brands products now!
Tint Barely Visible on Pigmented Lips
BrownGirl from Atlanta
I order the Rhubarb hoping to ditch the lipstick or lip stain on more casual days. The color is barely visible on pigmented lips. I'll end up wearing on top of a lip stain. The moisture is amazing and long lasting.
Kbizzzzzz from Ca
I have severely chapped lips. No matter what I do (or how much water I drink) I still have chapped lips and sometimes they bleed. I was using petroleum jelly. Then I bought this! Wow! I love that I get a tinted lip balm that actually hyrdrates my lips! Finally!! Oh but of course I lost it so now I'm buying 2 this time! I highly recommend!
This is great
NJ Shopper from Marlton,NJ
This ads a bit of color with moisture that lasts. I would recommend this product.
Pretty good product!
D from Sc
Consistency is really nice and it wears well. I wanted a nice natural balm. It goes on lighter than what it appears in the packaging. My lips are a bit dark naturally, but the shade looks darker in packaging. It's still a nice product. I'll prob just need to get a diff shade or clear. Still feels nice. Would purchase this brand again.
Lips sooooo smooth!
Princess M from Waynesboro, PA
I first bought the original Lanolips and fell in love immediately. Then I found this little gem with the same hydrating powers with a splash of color. A tiny bit lasts for a long time. I'll never run out of this again!
RobunRG from Houston, TX
Love Lanolips! Very emollient, thick & doesn't feather. Colors are subtle for "natural but better" look.
Just What I Needed
AnnaMK from Bend, OR
Perfect, super-moisturizing lip gloss in a great shade of pink. A winner.
Not a Balm, but a Lip Gloss
Melissa from Ohio
I love this companys hand cream and ethos. However, I was very very surprised by this balm. It doesnt sink into the lips at all, and is a very shiny gloss that sits on top of the lips. I was expecting a tinted lip balm and got a weirdly opaque, ultra shiny gloss. Time to go back to lip stains and pure lanolin over top. Disappointed in this, not even a good lip gloss either.
Over the moon with this Lip gloss
Kayley from Fullerton
This gloss feels wonderful on the lips. It is slightly sheer and has no glitter or reflect. May seem fairly thick coming out of tube but smoothes out like butter and does not feel sticky. This product seemed to smooth over my dry lips within 2 days.
This is the best moisturizer for my lips, and it's tinted/
Cindy from St. Louis, MO
The clear is very rich and clears up my dry lips in a matter of minutes, and lasts for days. The tinted is a nice color and looks great.
New Holy Grail lip balm!
JerseyGirl from Roanoke, Va
I've been searching everywhere for a tinted lip balm that doesn't look patchy and also supplies much-needed moisture. Most need to be constantly reapplied, or actually seem to dry out my lips. This balm is AMAZING! My lips feel so soft all day, and the nude color gives the perfect sheer tint. Love love love!
Gallysgirl from Norwalk, CT
This is a very pretty color. Natural mauve. It also works well like all the Lano products.
Lip product junkie!!!
Jen from North Carolina
Was really surprised for a "lip treatment" type product expected run of the mill! Very moisturizing but really long wearing bought 2 rose gold and pink doesnt stain lips feels great!
Shakin from Raleigh
This lip balm is the bomb.com. The perfect nude is great for everyday wear when you want to look put together - not too dark and really just enhances my natural lip color. So moisturizing, and slippery - NOT sticky! There's no fragrance or taste which is a huge plus for me. I could go on and on. Buy this - you won't regret it!
Vicki from Usa
Rhubarb is the best color out of all of the options. There was a learning curve for me to apply this flawlessy to my lips. I have to deposit the product onto my pinky finger, and apply it to my lips evenly distributing the product with my finger. I also can not over apply the amount, or it will not look even. After I figured out the best method of application I can surely say this is the best lip product I've ever owned. It's not sticky, and it feels like skin care for the lips while looking beautiful. One thing to note is that it thins out in consistency when overly exposed to hot weather.
serenabean77 from Rossville, GA
this balm is everything! gorgeous my lips but better color goes on like buttah. not sticky and doesnt taste horrible. subtle shine and lips are moisturized even after it's gone.
Questionable Universal Nude
Kuky from Maryland
I purchased this item thinking I could replace my nude lip balm I used daily. I am medium tan skin tone. This certain6was a tad more white based nude for me than pinky caramel nude I usually go for. It was just ok. Not amazed with the color; formula was excellent!
