Alba Botanica™ Mineral Terra Tints SPF 15 Garnet -- 0.15 oz
DRY, NOT A CHAPSTICK
I bought 3 in this color of terra tint and it is very very dry and I could not even apply it without pieces of it breaking off. I rolled it out and sliced off the top, and it was ok for a while but still too dry. A month later I opened it again to try and it was dry....had to slice off again. Finally I have given up on it.
When I did get it applied a few times, my lips felt dry. This isn't even a lipstick feel. It feels almost like having clay on my lips.
Not recommended. However, I used this brand before (years ago) and it was good, so perhaps it's just this color that is bad. All 3 of the tubes I bought are this way.

I had purchased this brand/tint before and liked how it went on my lips, as well as the color of it. I recently reordered this item and upon opening the seal, I noticed a rancid odor and it did not apply properly. Whether the product came from a bad/expired batch is not known, but it is doubtful that I will reorder.

unable to apply, too thick
As someone wrote below, it tugged at my lips. It is impossible to apply on my lips. I tried to warm it by putting in my pocket or put lip balm first, but finally I gave up. I threw it away.

Just Okay... Buy Bloom Instead!
This balm was not exactly the color I'd wanted, and unfortunately the tube I rec'd was just kind of "off" smelling. Vitacost was wonderful about refunding me. The color is more orangey-brown than I'd hoped. I do LOVE the same product in the color "Bloom" -- I use it daily. That might be a better one to start with!

tugs at your lips
The color of this Lip tint was great, but it was the opposite of soft and smooth. I gave up because it tugged at my lips. I tried using lip balm first, that helped a little, but for me, it's definitely a no.
