Packaging: 9.75/10

These balms come in plastic jumbo-pencils. The caps slip on and off and the bases twist to push up more product so that you do not need to sharpen anything. The caps are colored to match the lip shade.

Quality: 9/10

Apricot Twist is a soft coral with a slightly glossy finish. The shade has pigmentation but is not opaque and the color you get isn’t as bright as what you see in the tube. I found that, up close, this shade can be slightly uneven, though it’s not noticeable to most people.

The formula is emollient without being overly creamy. The balm glides across the skin. The color lasts for two (2) to three (3) hours and leaves a very light stain on the lips after fading off.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

The pencil form and twist-up base makes application very easy.

Price: 9.5/10

For $7.00-$9.00, you get 0.13 ounces (3.8 grams) of product. With Revlon’s Kissable Balm Stains, you get less product for the same price point.
