Application: The formula is moisturising and light rather than grainy or buttery like some lip care products on the market. You are left with a pleasant layer of balm on the lips which feels like it is sinking in somewhat and conditioning.

Pink Punch Peach Kiss
Scent: I can detect a light, fruity scent that is in no way over the top. There is no taste which is a definite plus. Bitter or chemical-tasting lip products are the worst!
Wear: Maybelline claim that the products last up to 8 hours; I would dispute that they last that long, however it depends if you are eating and drinking. The durability is quite good though and I imagine that for minor dry lip problems, it will hydrate reasonably well for four hours or so.
Do not expect this product to heal chapped lips, however. When I had dry and sore lips a month or so ago, this was not heavy-duty enough to make any difference.
Would I re-purchase? Yes, I probably would. Not because they are the best lip balms out there, but they are a really handy product to keep in your bag and apply during the day without a mirror. The packaging is also very cute!
