I used to swear by lipgloss until I bought this in 001 Honey Douce which is a subtle pink. It glides smoothly on my lips but enhances chapped areas so you need to exfoliate your lips. This balm lasts for hours. Honey douce is a pink that will look great on all skin tones & once the balm fades it leaves your lips with a berry red stain which is amazing if you hate reapplying. It has a minty smell but is tasteless.
