Most Helpful Positive Review Very moisturizing!!! Love!
I LOVE THIS STUFF. The product is slightly heavy but thats what makes this so moisturizing, you can definitely feel the castor oil! I suffer from constant dry lips and this product penetrates enough deep into the skin of my lips and makes them so soft and pouty with a hint of color, I usually do a full face of makeup and wear this as the finishing touch, the shade is sort of like a "my lip color, but better". I highly recommend, it's slightly tacky in feeling but the warmth of your lips melts it down perfectly! Only thing, if you don't care for heavy lip products, this may not be for you!
Most Helpful Critical Review Nope
I just received my "ride or die" lip balm in "cheeky cherry" & I was so excited about this product but it's a big NOPE for me!
First & foremost - it DOES NOT smell like cherry! It smells & tastes like perfumey soap - strong perfumey soap. Like, I can't get the taste out of my mouth strong perfumey soap! It's very off putting for me & I will not use this.
Second, it is much more like a tinted gloss than a balm. It is very sticky, very heavy & very shiny. For the few seconds I had it on, it did not seem soothing or balm-like.
The one positive I can give it is that it is a pretty, sheer shade - but for all the other disappointing reasons, I'm getting rid of this. Glad I didn't spend too much money on this.
Reviewed by 417 customers Best lip balm I've tried in a while !

I believe I Am a connoisseur when it comes to lip balms . I have tried everything under the sun from Shea moisture to Mario badescu. This is by the far the best lip balm I have ever tried . At first I was wondering why it was so hard to get out the tube but quickly realized it's a thicker formula which I am not mad at . Keeps my lips beyond hydrated forever ! I don't have to reapply for hours it's amazing . I love the light sent of peach and free subtle tint it gives my lips . Deff going to buy again and try the scent tough cookie .
Jadyn from Michigan
This is my favorite lip balm! It's super thick and hydrating, and the color of boss vary is so pretty, but after i used it one time it is super hard to get out of the tube. I have to twist and turn it in order to get it out. Other than that it is super amazing. :)
Kathy59 from Houston
Bought this on a whim to try. The thick formula came as a surprise, but I find that I keep the tube by the sink and put it on morning and night for long-lasting moisture and a touch of glossy color. I got this in Boss Berry and am happy with it—great value!
Crystal from NY
Love the thicker formula and is very creamy and moisturizing. I know a lot of people don't like the applicator but you can just use your finger or dab a the product straight from the tube and onto your lip.
Looks/feels good, HORRIBLE TASTE/SMELL
Kelley9 from Phoenix,AZ
I just received this via an online purchase. Tried it on immediately because I was really excited about it. It is thick but once it warms up on your lips, it feels like a normal lip balm. I love the color! I got the cherry shade. Major downside- it tastes and smells like I rubbed laundry detergent on my lips. No joke. I've never been one sensitive to smells but it's so strong and awful that I don't know if I can wear this. I'm hoping I just got a bad batch. I really wanted this to work
Yes I would buy it again
Eve from Indianna
I use it everyday
Sheila from WI
I love this. Its the perfect subtle tint and it lasts a long time. It's like my own lip color, but better. It is a heavy lip balm, but I really need something heavy and moisturizing, especially in the winter so that's a definite pro for me. I don't find it overly shiny, and would stay it is about as sticky as any other lip balm. The scent is minimal, and I don't think it has a flavor at all. Its definitely difficult to get out of the tube, but its worth it. I own every color, Boss Berry being my favorite. So glad I found it.
color is good but the smell.!!!
ladyhawk37754 from Knoxville, TN
The color is good, it's a bit thick and I really prefer to not have to use my fingers. But, I can't get past the smell. For me it's absolutely horrible!
Great lip balm, smells amazing
DrierThanMyHousePlants from UK
This is SUCH a nice lip balm. I got tough cookie and was worried that it would smell artificial or sickly but it doesn't, it just has this deep, yummy scent to it. Like walking into someone's house to find they're baking a pie. The colour is also really nice and makes my lips stand out a little more on my face, while still looking natural. Attached is the lip balm on my wrist.
The only thing is that I wish it came in a bottle with an applicator stick, as it leaves a waxy feel on my fingertip once I've applied it. It doesn't feel waxy on my lips though.
Boss Berry Is my Fav!

My go to and I want my lips to feel moisturized. I even wear it at night when I go to bed.
Great lip balm
T Richess from San Jose
Loved it I just wish it had a more cooling feeling I like that it was a thick consistency
Best lip balm ever
Heather E from Virginia
I've been looking for a lip balm that actually moisturizes my lips all day and have yet to find any treatments that work either. I finally decided to try it after hearing some good reviews and it really is ride or die! My lips have never been so moisturized and smooth and I can't get over how affordable it is. I have the mint one bc it's clear but I want to try the tinted ones next. You need this lip balm!

Feels incredibly nourishing and smooth. Love it! Will definitely purchase again!
Good lip balm
jnm165 from undisclosed
My favorite overall is tough cookie. I would repurchase that one but not any of the rest. It is a thick lip balm, which I think is nice especially if you wear it under a mask. I would prefer a different applicator, like a slanted one so I could put it on easier.
Very nice glossy balm.
Ree33 from RI
I think this is a nice glossy balm. I got it in tough cookie and the tint is a very MLBB color for me. I just wish it lasted a little bit longer. It kind of disappears after about a half hour or so. So it doesn't really work overnight or anything like that. I also don't understand a lot of the complaints about it. Yes it is thick. But even with it being single digit temperatures around here it still only takes about 10 seconds of massaging the tube to have it come out with little effort. And as for it not having an applicator and having to use your finger... yeah. Because it's thick. If it had one of the slant tip applicators the new complaint would be the tube becoming busted because product that thick is what damages those. So it's a lose lose for elf no matter what they do I guess. It is a nice balm, very shiny, a nice tint, smells good, wish it had a bit of flavoring and lasted longer but that's a but it. It's a basic product that works.
Definitely a Ride or Die!

I bought this maybe two-four weeks ago and have been obsessed with it since I first tried it. I got the shade "tough cookie." It smells just like cookies and the color is light enough where it looks similar to my natural lip color. It feels hydrating and has some shine to it that is similar to a gloss. I will be picking up more in the near future!
LOVE THIS but....
MakeupGeek from Michigan
So I LOVE the way this lip balm feels on my lips. It smells great, love the color, love how it's a thicker consistency that hydrates my lips BUT the applicator is absolutely awful and after using it once it gets extremely hard to get out of the tube. I hope E.L.F. Finds a new way to package the lip balm because that's the only downside.
MakeupLover33 from Missouri
I just bought two today for my dry winter lips.
The color does not match the pictures. They are more light. The gloss is thick you have to warm the tubes up first before using. It does the job under my mask. My lips are hydrated. I just wish color pigmentation would show up more. In the end I do recommend if you want thick gloss but don't be expecting color payoff.
SOOO hard to get out...
amrive from undisclosed
SOOO hard to get out of the tube!! Almost impossible at times! I was so looking forward to this product, but I was very disappointed!
Hydrating with a tint
CynN8 from Virginia
I love how nourishing and long lasting this is on the lips while offering a slight tint. The formula is quite thick so it is hard to squeeze out but once it warms up, it spreads beautifully.
Sugar Mama from Denver Co
I was disappointed in this lip balm, it us so hard I am unable to get it out of the tube.
Jas01 from Oklahoma City
This is a really good lip balm. It is very moisturizing and has a thick consistency. It is also sticky but it is really good and helps my lips a lot.
Alex from Connecticut
I really like it it's just kinda hard to squeeze out :(
Jade from Roanoke, Va
I use this product all the time since I purchased it
Love the smell and color BUT
TracyL215 from Pennsylvania
I really wanted to love this product. The smell and the colors are great. BUT it is so hard to get out of the tube! All the warming, does not make is easier to get out of the tube. It is not the consistency that it is shown in the pictures.
