My lips are incredibly easily annoyed - if the weather is too dry, too cold, too hot, too anything really, then my lips become dry n chapped in no time. It means I rarely go to bed without slathering them in Vaseline and always have a lip balm or 2 in my bag just in case
Although I've tried lots of different brands I generally come back to the same ones that I've found particularly reliable; Carmex, Vaseline and Burts Bees to name a few... So when I was doing a little online shopping last month I ordered one of the Burts Bees Lip Shimmers in Watermelon
The shape of this was a bit of a surprise cos it's so much thinner than the regular BBs lip balms that I own (i's almost pencil thin) Also, I panicked a little when I saw the colour - it's so much darker and more purple-y than I'd expected but thankfully it just gives a really lovely translucent glow with a hint of colour when it's on the lips
The only thing that left me slightly disappointed was the smell - I'd expected it to be a deliciously fruity watermelon scent (what with it being called watermelon n all) but it actually smells of peppermint. Not exactly a bad thing but kinda disappointing if it isn't what you're expecting, you know?
As for the balm itself it's smooth, not too greasy and definitely not sticky so I thoroughly enjoy using it! Oh and I love the skinny tube as it's so easy to apply without worrying about colouring outside the lines :)
