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.

      Lovely review and video!
      I think these lips balms are nice but for me , I prefer a little more pigmented.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Yeah that’s how I feel :)

      I’ve been wanting the regular La Creme in marshmallow bunny for a long while. I wasn’t too drawn to these and appreciate your perspective. I see that Sephora has a set of two La Creme’s, a shadow insurance and mini liner for less than the price of two of the lipsticks. Was thinking of purchasing as a way to finally try the lipsticks.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        The regular lipsticks are great! I also like the lip insurance primer.

      Great review! These seem like nice lip balms, but I probably wouldn´t purchase any of them because I would like my lip balm stay on my lips little bit longer for that price.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I can understand that!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Great review. I wish that they had a SPF in them too. Bummer that they dont, because if they did I would be all over them- since its worth the price. The colors are pretty but I agree I probably wouldnt purchase them because of no SPF, and the cost. Beautiful post!!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        The SPF is such an important thing for me here in FL.

      They have a few La Creme shades on sale today on Hautelook!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Ooh, they’re so pretty! I think I own them all.

    • http://www.beautyandfashiontech.com/ Carleen

      I like more sheer items. These sound perfect!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        So happy they are a fit for you :)

      I saw these on the Too Faced site, but I’m glad I didn’t pick them up. I just don’t see the the need for these.. especially at that price point. I can enjoy my $3 EOS or Softlips Cube for a clear balm, and save my $$ for the La Creme lipsticks – which I LOVE.. and bought a few from HauteLook today!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Yay! So happy you scored Too Faced on Hautelook!

    • http://www.clumpsofmascara.com Brittany

      Thank you so much for keeping it real! These are lovely but yeah, when it comes to balms, I feel you can’t go wrong with a cheap one.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        You’re welcome! My HG is the Supergoop!

    • http://www.honeygirlsworld.com/ Honeygirlk

      I am the same, I really wanted these but at that price point, I like my EOS and baby lips ;)

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I can totally understand!

    • http://www.manifestdestany.com/ Destany

      Love your honesty. I saw these and wondered… now I know not to bother.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        For me to fall in love they would need SPF

    • http://loveforlacquer.com/ loveforlacquer

      I’m so bummed these aren’t that great – I was really looking forward to them! Great honest review!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        You’re welcome Jen! I figure they’re not great for me but they may be great for someone else :)

    • Justina

      Thanks for such an honest review!

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        You’re welcome Justina!

      I like un-tinted or sheer balms for around the house activities, but there are surely cheaper solutions for that. My favorite is Fresh Sugar balm, which I have not found a reasonably priced equivalent for, and I lost my last tube so I’m hesitant to buy it again.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        I love the Fresh Sugar lip balms, wish they were CF! My HG is Supergoop SPF 30, under $9.

    • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

      OOOO! Those look really interesting!

    • Cosmetic Sanctuary

      Ohh I like this type of lip product for Summer!

    • http://www.blushingnoir.com/ Brooke @ Blushing Noir

      This type of product is totally right up my alley!

    • FabZilla_Kath

      Oh they have lip balms now? that’s awesome!!!

    • Ashley P

      Hmmm… These sound like a pass for me.

    • http://www.painted-ladies.com/ Sheila Arkee

      Thanks for the review – I might pick up one, but at the price tag and lack of pigmentation I might save the money for something else.

    • Aleya Bamdad

      Yeah, I can’t imagine paying that much for a balm- even if it is from Too Faced.

    • cindyprimebeauty

      I like lip balms but I could just as easily pick up a few Maybelline Baby Lips!

    • http://www.cosmetically-challenged.com Melody Robinson Wright

      I’m not a fan of huge sheer lip balms and the price tag kinda throws me even more. Thanks for the review.

    • Betzy Carmona

      If they bring a good sale to hsn with them I will pick them up

    • http://theplasticdiaries.com Kimmi @ The Plastic Diaries

      It’s such a bum these aren’t vegan. I was really hoping they would be.

    • http://www.stephanielouiseatb.blogspot.com Stephanie Louise Telford

      Bummer about the overall formula- I was really hoping to want these!
