Packaging: 9.5/10

This lip product comes in a rubberized-plastic jumbo-pencil tube. The pencil has a slip-off cap and twists at the base so that you don’t have to sharpen the product.

Quality: 9.8/10

Bitten Berry is a strongly-pigmented purple-red shade. It looks more purple swatched on the skin and more red once actually applied to the lips. The color is strong without being opaque. The natural texture of your lips underneath shows through and the balm leaves a slightly glossy sheen behind.

This balm is somewhat transfer-proof, and lasts an impressive amount of time. It leaves a stain behind, giving your lips color for over three (3) to four (4) hours.

The balm has a menthol scent, but I didn’t feel any tingling on the lips. The formula is completely smooth on the lips, similar to a traditional chapstick. It keeps the lips moisturized and soft.

Ease of Use: 10/10

This balm is effortless to use. The pencil form gives you fast, precise application.

Price: 9/10

For $16.00 you get 0.10 ounces (3 grams) of product.

    Love this color on you, it looks great on you, as soon as I watched your Nov favs video, I had to know what you were wearing on your lips! I was ‘passing by’ target & had to get a few things…this & Oyster Glow EL somehow jumped into my cart! Can’t wait to wear it. Thanks beautiful, hope things are getting better for you.
