My Thoughts
Ultimately,  I was disappointed with the La Creme Lip Balms. I did not find them to be as moisturizing on my lips as my HG lip balm. They have a ton of ingredients that should be moisturizing – castor oil, olive oil, shea butter, jojoba seed oil, grape seed oil, but it doesn’t feel like the the moisture sinks into my lips as much as I would like. I feel like I need to reapply every hour or two. I feel like they form a protective barrier on top of my lips instead. However I do really like that this is a non-sticky formula. It’s great that they’re chock full of antioxidants and Hyaluronic filling spheres that are supposed to smooth out and plump your lips.

For those of you who hate parabens, these contain no parabens.

It is hard to tell the different shades apart, as they really all look the same, aside from Like Buttah (clear) and Plum Craze (plum). It’s nearly impossible for me to tell Honey Bunny, Peachy Keen, Pink Slip and Just Kissed are are on my lips, aside from the slight shine. For the record, my lips aren’t very pigmented.

I do enjoy the light citrus scent. It comes off as lemony to me. I find myself wishing that these contained SPF. I consider applying lip balm with SPF daily a priority.

I think that they’re very expensive lip balms for my taste. While I’ve had no problems purchasing shades in the La Creme lipstick formula that I wanted, I personally would balk at purchasing more than 1 shade of the lip balm – Like Buttah (clear)  because you can’t really tell the shades apart.

I do think the packaging is cute, as it’s very similar to the La Creme lipsticks. It’s a light pink metallic tube and it does feel like a luxury lip product. I love how the logo is embossed on the side, as I feel it looks classy.

If you are the sort of person who likes sheer lip balms with antioxidants and a non-sticky formula, you may fall in love with the La Creme Lip Balms.
