Rated 4.38 out of 5 stars
They all had the perfect amount of tint for a balm except for Fast Lane. Fast lane matches my lips pretty closely, so that's part of why it didn't have much color, but even a swatch on my hand was pretty sheer. Im still considering keeping it because it was still more color than a clear balm and it looked nice!!
All of them are great for every day wear, and the different range of shades allow to coordinate better with whatever I'm wearing!
The formula feels great on my like lips and the color is very buildable. If I do one light swipe, it's a nice light tint with enough moisture. If I want more color, I can do another swipe and it looks great. It doesn't look like i have too much product on either, which is why I'd consider this to be very buildable for your desired color payoff!
Would definitely recommend if you want something that adds a little color but not too much.
Other tinted balms I've tried almost have TOO much tint, or the color looks weird if you put more than one layer. I can coat my lips in this like i would with sheer chapstick and it doesn't look weird! And I can also do a light coat and it feels moisturizer still.
Removing 1 star bc Fast Lane could be a little more pigmented, but overall, still good.
I have the Dior lip glow and even though I doubt that it was worth the buy, I do enjoy the texture, and the moisture it provides my lips with a decent amount of shine and shimmer. I absolutely love the orgasm color (I like the blush and "multiple" stick). Even though I didn't expect much color payoff since this was labeled a lip balm, it is so barely noticeable that there's no way I'd even pay $5 for this. I truly don't understand why they named it orgasm because it has no business being clumped into that gorgeous-perfect-balance-of-peachy-pink-truly-universally-flattering color family. I didn't feel like it had any other attributes either—not so moisturizing or anything else to justify the purchase or it "living" amongst the rest of my products. Such a shame. Was so excited to try it but such a dismaying miss. Oh well. If you want the orgasm color on your lips, use the multiple stick on its own or layer with gloss for shine, or sheer out by using the multiple over a regular lip balm.
And if you simply want a great lip balm—so many choices out there. Laneige sleeping mask for your lips, as well as others. I even wear the one in "berry" at times during the day for color plus moisture.

I got the gold one in the birthday pack and it has been my favorite to this day. Just got Dolce Vita and if youre wondering if its worth it - 100% go for it.

Great color and coverage lip balm for everyday. This was a freebie years ago and I haven't found a better lip balm yet.
Shan from Kingston, NY
During my recent visit to Ulta, I made an impulsive purchase that I have absolutely no regrets about. The only downside is the price, but despite that, I will most likely repurchase it due to my immense satisfaction. I opted for the shade Dolce Vita, which has quickly become my favorite lip product. Working at a bar often makes it tiresome to constantly touch up my makeup, but with this product, I can effortlessly reapply it without the need for a mirror, and the color stays vibrant for a significant amount of time. Additionally, it feels incredibly lightweight on my lips and provides ample hydration. The color is subtly beautiful, just the right amount to enhance my overall look.

Laguna is so flattering on us tan girlies. It's glossy, creamy and gives the best tint ever. Its truly worth it.
Kates from Pittsburgh, PA
Should have been perfect but was not. Lousy color. Makes mouth look dirty. Doesnt taste good. Dosn't moisturize. So expensive.
Jules from Tucson, Arizona
Very sheer pretty shade to wear alone or layer with a deeper lip color. Do wish they had the same color in a lipstick rather than a balm
April from Nashville, Tennessee
I absolutely love this pinkish/peachy light shimmer. It gives you the natural color of your lips with a little shimmer. It's perfect for me because I don't want them as glossy as glossy liquids.

HG from St Pete FL
This is my favorite lipstick ever. Its moisturizing so i dont need to use any other lip balm. The color is buildable. The orgasm color is my favortie and i wear it every day.
LISA from Sarasota, FL
Color is nice but it's not as moisturizing as I would like. I will use it up but not repurchase at this price.

This product is do much more than a badic lip balm. I love rhst NARS calks it a balm b/c all those qualities are there.., but this "balm" over-delivers riche color & creaminess of application! (This was my 1st time trying a Nars Lip Product. I havent been underground or on a dessert island.., I simoly hadnt had the opportunity). Best part: always creamy, never tacky or sticky. Almost impossible to find in a "gloss." This NARA "balm," is allll the things. It's quite moisturizing as well.
Naturally, I went w/ "orgasm," to see what rhe cult-hype was all about. I DO ❤️ see it! There's an IT FACTOR here. It might be this product's glide-on, creamy formula. Color + Balm = Genius.
Crystal from Connecticut
Love this color looks fantastic on and very moisturizing! A great summer color tan or not!
Maggie from Pennsylvania
This looks pretty rnough- the bronze color is shimmery but not cheap looking. However, it always leaves my lips dry and chapped, and i need to apply an actual lip balm beforehand. Also, the packagint looks pretty but is actually very lightweight and cheap feeling. I dont trust that this will stay closed in my bag!
Tina from Mpls
I purchase three colors believing these would be a balm and thus moisturizing. These were the complete opposite. Drying. They did leave a nice color. However, my lips felt significantly dry shortly after applying. I tossed all three as I didn't feel these were worth to even donate. That's how drying they were to me.
Brooke from Nashville, TN
I love this lip balm. Its sheer but compliments the natural color of my lips. It doesnt last but i cant name a lip balm that does so that was expected.
TACinOR from Oregon
Please never stop making this lip balm. Its so comfortable on the lips and gives a beautiful wash of color.
Addy from Fishers, Indiana
Although it is expensive for a lip balm, if you want to invest in a good lip balm with a pretty shade, then give it a try! I got Dolce Vita, which gives a sheer pink with some glitter. However, you may have to reapply.
Kylie from Louisiana
Absolutely the best!!!!
Lara from Seattle
Perfect for that natural look. There is very little pigment but just a touch that gives a little warmth for that summer glow.
d from los fresnos tx

Leighm from Indiana
This has been my go-to lip wear it's very pretty and the moisture lasts hours with just enough color
Rochelle from St. Pete, FL
I absolutely love this lip balm, it's a little pricey but I love the sheer subtle color. It enhances my lips without it looking like I have on a bunch of lipstick. I typically don't wear much makeup, but my lips are a pretty dull shade of pink. This adds a little color to my relatively natural look and I personally think it's perfect. If you're looking for a lipstick, this is not it though.
Kari from Oregon
I have the laguna shade and on my very pale complexion it is absolutely stunning. It is a more sheer product, but I love that. It is like a glossy-balm and the texture is just amazing for my lips. I find it very hydrating, though nothing lasts forever. I cannot wait to try the orgasm shade to match my blush! (I do absolutely love Nars though, almost every product works well for my very dry, sensitive, fair skin)
