If there's only one thing you should know about me and beauty products, is that I am completely addicted to the ones that have squee aka cute packaging.
When I was living in Australia, I used to shop on Yesstyle and enjoyed browsing through the Asian cosmetic brands available. That was when I fell upon Tony Moly's lip balm collection and couldn't take my eyes off of it and within a couple of days, I bought not only one, but two! One cherry and the other, blueberry.
As with any new cosmetics, I tried it out immediately. The first thing I noticed was the smell. It didn't really smell like cherries, but leaning more towards the 'peach' fragrance. Not to mention, the colour of the balm itself was peach pink. To be honest, I was just a little put off by the smell of the balm itself. The Blueberry flavored balm, was a much darker pink and left a more prominent colour on the lips. Smell-wise, it wasn't really what I was expecting at all, albeit better than the Cherry.
In regards to effectiveness, it works like any other balm. I tend to leave mine on the nightstand for easy reach, and apply it prior to sleep. If I put a generous amount, it normally ends up still being on the following morning, so no dry lips!
Would I buy this again if it ran out? Probably not (maybe the peach-flavored so I can finish off my cute container set!). However, if you're looking for an eye-catching lip balm, this is definitely one that'll start a conversation amongst your girlfriends!
