When I first applied it, I didn't see very much color, unless I added more layers-a lot more. I am pale so the pale pink just kind of faded in. As the day wore on, I kept feeling the need to apply, and reapply more than I usually do than with my other lip products. By the evening, I realized my lips were continually becoming more dry, and starting to hurt a bit. When I removed the product I almost started crying. My lips felt so raw and cracked. I don't know if it was any of the ingredients or what, but I had a bad reaction. I have tried many lip products over the years and have NEVER had a problem like this before. I am surprised of the outcome, considering I love Maybelline's Baby Lips and their Vivids lipsticks, and have had no issues with either. I did return this product for a refund, and do not plan to try their Whispers again. Even weeks after using the product that one day, I still had dryness to combat, which was never an issue before. It was like peeling dander on my lips all the time!!!
I would highly recommend doing further research for more reviews before wasting money on this product. After my friend Honey (honeygirlsworld) and I discussed it at length we agreed that it is too much money for an over-hyped lip balm (that's pretty much all it is, being that it lacks pigmentation at all). If anything you are really just paying extra for adorable packaging. Which it is a crying shame it doesn't deliver, as they did get that part right. I will stick to my baby lips, Eos, and Smackers lip products if I want a lip balm, thank you much!
