I have a big tube of the red balm. Liked it. It was semi-opaque red, but once you smear it on it became sheer and non sticky. I decided to try the smaller pink tube. First of all, the color is NOT semi-opaque gel like fuchsia pink. It is a opaque Barbie pink with paste texture. I was shocked and kinda disappointed at first, then I spreader on my lips and it did look quite pretty even on my olive skin tone. Non-sticky and pretty hydrating. Went by my day and 6 hours later after lunch and snack, I still have a beautiful pinkish tint left. I’m sold. Definitely like this better than the red.
