COST: $9 (bought on sale for $3)
THE SKINNY: Pacifica's Color Quench feels great on your lips. It's hydrating and buttery, like a good balm should be.
This balm is vanilla hibiscus, meaning it has a nice hint of vanilla flavor but an odd pearly pale pink color. The color doesn't do much for me.
But the size of the balm stick is the bigger issue for me. It's larger than your typical tube of balm and that makes it easy to over-apply. It's not good to get out of the lines of your lips with a pearly pink balm, either.
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. This is an OK balm, but I wouldn't pay $9 for it.
CHECK IT OUT: This balm comes in five flavor/color combinations.
