THE GOOD: The lip balms are EXTREMELY pigmented so you get great colour payoff. The formulation of SOME of the lip balms (Countess Bathory, Incantation, Masquerade Ball) is very nice and application is smooth. There are a LOT of colours to choose from on the website so there are colours for those who like more traditional lip products as well as some shades that are out there. The packaging is simple and neat.
THE BAD: Some of the balms were not flat on top when I opened them but had kind of "caved in" in the middle which made them hard to apply from the tube. I am also very confused about why these products were labelled as lip balms. They are too pigmented to casually apply as one would apply a balm and they are also rather drying in my opinion.
THE UGLY: I had some application issues with a few of these. Miss Jupiter was not as opaque as I was hoping and I found that it applied a bit patchy. A couple of the balms (Electron and Holographic Cauldron) tend to "pill" a bit on application.
THE VERDICT: I really like the colours that I got as many of them are "off-black" which gives me some options that are similar to black but not for my goth looks. The ones that I have worn out stayed put and didn't need frequent re-application. While there are application issues with some of these, I do like them overall. I kind of think that these should just be called lipsticks because I don't think their formulation resembles a balm in any way. If you are looking to use these as a coloured lip balm, I wouldn't necessarily recommend them. If you are looking for a highly pigmented lip colour, I would definitely give them a try.
