I do not really wear any lipsticks during the morning (since normally I am at university) but I do love wearing coloured balms.
A while back I got the Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar (review here) which I looveeeeee.
Then I saw the Etude House Sweet Receipt Candy Sticks and I fell in love with the packaging, because it looks like a Candy Cane stick ^.^
The Candy Sticks come in 3 different shades: Strawberry Candy, Orange Candy and Lemon Candy.
I got mine from this seller here (RubyRuby76 - I always buy Korean Makeup from them) and it cost me $5.98 including shipping.
I chose the Lemon Candy one and you get 2grms.
The balm itself looks yellow but it changes to a nice pink when applied. The more you apply the stronger the colour turns out. It also smells delicious - much like lemons in fact!
Unlike the Tony Moly one, this one is a balm tint - so it stains your lips while also giving them a mild glossy look.
It also helps soften my lips, and the glossiness/balminess stays on for about 1-2 hrs (I keep nibbling on my lips grrr >.< )
My only problem with this is that when I tried twisting up the lipbalm to see how much product I got, it got stuck! I had the same problem with the Tony Moly one too. I then had to push it with my lips while twisting it down - so I'm never going to twist more than I need.
