After using this product I had shimmer all over my lips and the area below when using this product. It also smells like a chalky, berry-flavored Tums chewable tablet. It feels like I have sand on my lips. One of my friend who used this product had an allergic reaction to the product. It gave her blisters and the worst chapped lips of her life.

works well but when you get to the end of the tube seems like there is an excess amount of glitter

When I first saw ads for the ChapStick True Shimmers a few months ago, I could not wait to try them, so I finally bought them. If you haven't heard of them yet, much as the name would suggest, the True Shimmer balms offer the same moisturizing benefits of a lip balm but with the added bonus of subtle shimmer. So far there are two available flavors,Tropical and Botanical Berry, but two additional flavors, Peppermint Rush and Blended Fruit Sherbet, will be released later this Summer.

After using the True Shimmers for a few weeks now, I can say that they definitely lived up to my expectations and beyond. The moisturizing and lip protection that the balm provides is unquestionable and definitely what one would expect from a ChapStick product. However, the new, sexy shimmer is amazing! It is subtle, but not too subtle. I was a little apprehensive that the shimmer would be so light that it would hardly matter at all, but I was incorrect. It is definitely noticeable, visible and very flattering without being overtly obvious. In short, this is the perfect makeup product to give you that fast, easy, on-the-go, no-fuss-but-still-a-little-glam look.

This product would be absolutely perfect for a low maintenance gal to spiff up the routine without a major time and money investment. Or, it works for those high maintenance gals who want to keep their lips soft but not let them go completely unadorned. It is all around a great product for everyone and I can't recommend it highly enough. One use that I have enjoyed is applying it over a lip stain to provide a little dimension since stains tend to dry matte. Especially for when you want to use a lip stain but don't want to be overly-glossed, this is an excellent middle ground.

That being said, I feel obligated to point out a few minor issues. My main problem is the lack of SPF. For any product intended or expected to be used outside (which seems likely for the ChapStick True Shimmers), it seems reasonable to anticipate it would have at least some SPF.
Overall though, great product.

Adds a nice shine and keeps lips soft. It smells and tast good, but feels a little weird at first.
