I wanted to love this product so badly. The tin is adorable and I love the fragrance and flavor of violets and violet candies. Unfortantely, this is not what I wanted it to be. The tin is very cute in person, nouveau and adorable. However, I found it very difficult to open because it lacks a pronounced “lip”. The lip balm is more of a gloss and has the texture of Vaseline. This didn’t bother me. This makes it long lasting and perfect for “marninating” lips before applying a bold shade of lipstick. It feels nice on the lips. The violet fragrance really isn’t there. It doesn’t smell like fresh violets or like candied violets. I really don’t know what it is supposed to smell like, sweet? I don’t know what it is, but I dislike it. After sniffing other tins, I found that I like them better (such as red currant and vanilla) but the tin is still annoying. This retails for $6 and is availbale on beautyhabit.com. (If you are interested.)
