My Experience with Absolute New York You Are the Balm in Green Apple and Grape:

Packaging:  These lip balms come in an absolutely cute and attractive packaging. They are packed side by side in a pastel striped cardboard box and look like yummy macaroons. The Green Apple flavor comes in an apple green tin and the Grape one in a lavender tin. The lid fits tight and there is no danger of the lid coming off if you toss this tin in your bag. I personally don’t like tin/tub packaging because you need to dip your finger in to get the product. But nonetheless, these are currently the cutest lip balms that I own and I love taking them out of my bag to reapply (read show-off).

Formula/Performance:  Both the lips balms are very soft and literally melt on the lips. They do not feel sticky or waxy on the lips.  It hydrates the lips well, but the staying power is not much and you do need to re-apply every 2-3 hrs. They hydrate well and make the lips smooth, soft and glossy instantly after the application. The lasting power is only about 2-3 hours.

The Green Apple lip balm is red in color and surprisingly has a fragrance which leans more towards strawberry. It leaves a very slight reddish tint on the lips which will be more visible on paler lips.

The Grape lip balm is a lovely lavender and has slight shimmer in it. The shimmer is not visible on the lips and only helps in adding to the sheen.

  1. Glad these work well on your lips. Even I fell for the packaging and picked bubblegum and strawberry flavours. Were not at all moisturising, felt like they just sat there on my lips.
