The slant tip applicator makes for easy application and no messy wand. The texture is more of a gloss than a balm, but feels nice and moisturizing on.
This reminds me of Clinique's superbalm only it smells delightful like berries. Clinique's had an awful chemical scent to it I couldn't stand.
ultra violet looks very cool purple:
It's quite sheer and looks nice and glossy on. The color is just a bit deeper and cooler than my natural lips.I wasn't impressed with the lasting power, maybe an hour or so for me. It is a gloss. Not a bad product, but not amazing either.
Have you tried color quench balms? did you like them?
