Hi Lovelies,Its been awhile since I've been trying to get my hands on these lip balm, they've been available locally close to two or three months, mainly at a couple of our local facebook sellers, but finally this past week I was able to try these few. So I got them at Wonderful World at TTD $30. and they are available in eight (8) shades, but these were the shades available at the time: 01 nude chic, 05 honey love, 06 cranberry crush, rock n rouge
As you can see from the above photo they are wrapped with tamper proof plastic, with the colour and name printed both on the wrapper and actual packaging. Each balm has a candy sweet smell, but is not flavoured.

07 rock n rouge was a warm red, very pigmented from the first swipe/ application it also had some very fine glitter which was noticeable when it came time for removal.
06 cranberry crush a nice colour which showed up on my lips, just wish the "tone" was deeper.
05 honey love was a pink-like nude.
01 nude chic had a slightly shimmery silver look on my lips and you definitely noticed the fine glitter when it came time for removal.
Generally for me, the brighter/deeper the lip balm colour, the stronger the pigmentation and the longer it lasted on my lips, the moisturising effect was okay, it did not leave my lips feeling dry and cracked but when compared to their own Sweet n' Smooth lip balm, I felt the difference. The Sweet n' Smooth lip balm, sank into my lips leaving it feeling soft and "hydrated".

crush, honey love, nude chic.
Overall it was a much more affordable lip stain than the Revlon Just Bitten, which has shot up in price locally, depending on where it is purchased, it has more colours than the BeautyTreats version and seems to look pretty vibrant on my lips. Hope this helps for women with darker pigmented lips.
Have a Great Weekend Everyone!
Bye for now.
