First of all the packaging. It is so so cute! A small transparent jar with a mirror shiny adorable red cap. A heart shaped hollow out holds the lip balm/conditioner, as you can see in the pic. (pretty no? I fell for this product mainly for the cute packaging).
●Now for the colour, Charmer is a gorgeous corally pink colour with a tiny amount of reddish orange in it. Definitely a unique colour in the tinted lip balm category. Which is why I picked up this over the pinks. (Also, I didn't have a colour like this in my kit. And until this came along, I basically thought I look ridiculous in coral ....*ahem* yes I was so stuck to brown nudes...I guess its just about finding out the right shade)
●The conditioner is not very pigmented, but it isn't very sheer also. Something in between. And glossy. Which makes it very wearable for college\office\your girls get-together etc. Try applying it with a lip brush. It's easier and gives better colour pay off. (And keeps your fingers clean and non sticky, and maintains hygeine). It will work good as a gloss over a lipstick also.
●The lasting power is an hour or two maximum, which is good considering its only a tinted balm. It survies some light snacking/drinking, but do not expect it to last through full meals. I love re-applying it, so its good by me.
● On the conditioning aspect, its not very good. I expected more out of it. It's keeps your lips soft for as long its on and a little while after also, but you can't expect it to heal chapped/dry lips. You need something heavier for those. (I personally like nivea, maybelline baby lips for that). But yes, lip love conditioner smoothens out your lips when applied.
● The smell is a bit strong and sweet. (My roomie could smell it 3 ft away for a few minutes when I applied it first. So, to all the sensitive noses, please do sniff it before buying).
● The only down side is the packaging (which I do love since it looks very cute...great to look at). It's a tub. So you have to use your fingers every time (or a Q tip/brush). It would have been so much better with a stick packaging!
It can't be used under a lipstick since it buttery and will make the lip colour bleed and slide.
If you are ok with the tub packaging, I would definiely recommend you to pick this up. It's a unique colour and a fun tinted lip balm. Has spf too. (Again...loving the heart shaped tub a lot... Cute!)
