Maybelline Shine Sensational Pop-stick in Fruit Punch 130

After I saw this on Nouveau Cheap, I just knew that I had to search for these….especially after the extensive journey I undertook to attempt to purchase a Clarins Crystal Lip Balm way back when.  I came up empty then (thanks Clarins and Shoppers Drug Mart-NOT) so I was uber determined to score one of these.

And that I did!  Say hello to Fruit Punch 130:

I actually <3 this product!  It’s completely translucent, so I don’t expect a ton of color, it’s just a hint that ends up on the lips.  It goes on like a dream!  Plus the packaging is fun and PINK-so it’s a definite *hit* with me!

I have seen on several forums and blogs that people aren’t liking this product but compared to the hefty price tag of a Clarins Crystal Balm, I will pick the pop-stick any time!  I probably won’t buy them all-but I like having them around!

Have you tried the Maybelline Pop-sticks yet?  What do you think of translucent balms?

    I see it everywhere! It looks cool but I think I’ll pass.

      @Jenn I can see why you would pass-I think that it’s not going to be any ‘new classic’ but it’s cute for summer. I would rather have this in my purse and lose it versus my chanel rouge shine. I wouldn’t cry, you know?
