To be brutally honest, I don't think I would've picked these up if I saw them in the stores. The packaging looks very childish and the tube itself is frosty unlike the Maybelline Baby Lips, so it totally threw me off because I don't like lip balms that are of a frosty finish.

They each have a different fruity smell. It can get quite annoying if you prefer fragrance free lip balms. In terms of colour, I feel that my picture below is a good enough representation. There is a very light tint with frost finish to it but not very noticeable on lips.

I think that in terms of moisturizing, it's definitely not on par with other lip balms on the market. I would say that the even bonne bell ones would do a better job. I needed to reapply almost every hour. It glided alright on my dry chapped lips, but I was hoping for better. I don't recommend these for anyone.
