Sally Hansen Colorfast Tint + Moisture Balm in In the Pink Swatches

Another chubby stick tinted lip balm!  This one is from Sally Hansen and was just launched in drugstores for the spring.  It comes in ten colors that include nudes, pinks, plums, and a red.  I bought the lightest pink color, In the Pink.

Sally Hansen says:  A nourishing lip balm with a hint of tint and boost of moisturizing shine. The lightweight formula smoothes and hydrates lips, for 30% more moisturized lips, instantly! The results? Visibly healthier lips that feel rejuvenated and renewed.

Like other crayons of this kind, it is twist-up/self-sharpening and the color of the packaging matches the color of the balm.  It gives the lips some shine and has a lightweight, somewhat balmy texture as it is applied.  It has a faint, slightly marshmallowy scent that disappears once applied, and it has no taste.

In the Pink is a warm, slightly peachy, neutral pink that has a little sparkle.  This color is fairly sheer and imparts a natural color to the lips.

This balm is only somewhat moisturizing and it wears off after only a couple of hours.  It seems like reapplication is necessary to keep the hydrated feel on the lips, and my lips do feel somewhat dry after it wears off.  I think there are some better lip crayons out there, but if you don't mind frequently swiping this on your lips, it has a nice price ($4.99) and pretty color selection.
