When I first saw these on some beauty blogs, I wasn’t that excited to get it, but what really got me is that cute egg-like containers and very pretty pastel colors and most especially, how it is so easy to apply. You could buy it on your local drugstores or you can buy it at $3.29 on the EOS Website. If you are in the Philippines you could buy it online on Carefree Shopper owned by Ms. Armie Chua. She is very accommodating and you could guarantee your products to be authentic.

I own seven flavors of EOS Lip Balms… Yes, you could call it obsessing but I like it so much that I didn’t think of the price at all.

First one is the EOS in Honeysuckle-Honeydew. It has a mint green packaging and has a fruity, almost floral scent to it. Its taste is quite subtle and glides on smoothly. I rate this one 4.5 / 5.
When I first saw this on the net I thought that this will be my absolute favorite lip balm because I’m into melons, but then comes…

EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint that comes in a powder blue container and smells heavenly. The smell is comparable to Wrigley’s Double Mint Gum. After you apply this it has a refreshing and tingly sensation. It has a subtle sweetness to it and the added minty flavor. It also glides on well and also I find this one the most moisturizing and has the longest staying power. I rate this one 5 / 5

I was not even the least attracted to EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit, but it came in a pack together with the first two so there’s nothing I could do and I’m sorry to say that I was right, I don’t like this particular flavor, its doesn’t moisturize, it doesn’t glide on well and it doesn’t leave me with smooth lips but instead a greasy lip jelly feel without the shine. But I got to say the color is adorable and it smells good. I rate this one 3 / 5

EOS Lipbalm in Strawberry Sorbet is in a limited edition twin pack. It has a very cute pastel pink container but its smells like cough medicine with a slight dairy smell like “cough medicine milkshake”. But it glides on so well and its not sticky at all. Its really good but my only concern is the smell. I rate this one 3.5 / 5

EOS Lipbalm in Passionfruit is in a limited edition twin pack with Strawberry Sorbet. All I can say is that I like this one better. When I smell this I remember Wonka Nerds (yep, the candy). It smells more fruity than cough syrupy. It glides on well, not as good as the mint one but it’s respectable. I rate this one 4.1 / 5

First of all EOS Lipbalm in Lemon with SPF 15 smells heavenly. It’s not that air freshener scent that you often get with lemon flavored products but this is a surprise. Its a lot like candy… Starburst, Starfruit (In the Philippines) and Moutain Dew. When you glide it on, it’s a little sticky, but what the heck, it has spf human!! I rate this one

EOS Lipbalm in Medicated Tangerine lived up to my expectations… It smells like cough medicine with a dash of air freshener… It is used to treat cold sores and chapped lips, so I could understand why it smells like that. But the thing is, the smell gets better after gliding it on your lips.
