This lipstick was really cheap, but that also means that it functioned more like a pigmented lip balm than a lipstick. It does not apply full color, it does not apply with much pigmentation, and a couple layers are required to get the effect of the color on the lips. To wear this, you definitely need to exfoliate, as it will cling to dry spots. The formula is a little strange, as for a lipstick that is not full color, it is rather dry. It also smells like fruity candy - its not overpowering, but the smell does linger a little after applying. I do not recommend this lipstick for anyone with yellow-toned skin. Despite pictures, it is quite cool toned. Where it fails as a lipstick though, this does apply beautifully as a cream blush. Because the formula is drier, it will not make your face greasy, and the lack of pigmentation on the lips means that it won't make you look like a clown if you put it on your cheeks. For someone who wears very minimal makeup, who wants a very slight wash of color on the lips after putting lip balm on, and who is cool toned, you are in the minority where this might work as a "lip balm" for you.
