Figs & Rouge Cherry Blossom Lip Balm

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3 stars

COST: $8-$9

THE SKINNY: This all natural lip balm from Figs & Rouge has a nice tint and lasts for several hours.

I got one of these in the most recent Glossybox and was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked the product. (Sadly sometimes claims of 100% natural mean odd-tasting when it comes to lip balm.)

This balm has a soft cherry flavor but is not overwhelming in smell or color, although it is very pink in the tube. This was my first taste of the brand and I would be interested to see another product or two.

The only real downside is the package and application. The tube is not made for direct application so you have to use your fingers, making it pretty messy.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. Who ever has enough lip balm?

CHECK IT OUT: Figs & Rouge comes in three varieties -- cherry, coco rose and mocha orange. You can find them at select retailers.
