The Body Shop Born Lippy Sticks

I've been shopping at The Body Shop since I was in middle school and as far back as I can remember, the Born Lippy line came in a pot. I'm not a huge fan of potted lip balms as some of you may know and I was browsing in my local store and happened upon their new Born Lippy Sticks. They are currently on sale in for 2 for $10 and I had a Living Social deal expiring so I took the plunge. I bought the Plum and Strawberry flavors. These remind me of the Maybelline Baby Lips but these are a bit more moisturizing for me and they smell divine.
Strawberry (left) is basically clear though the packaging and balm color is more of a light pink not the orange shown but Plum actually has a bit of pigment. The Pomegranate color is similarly pigmented to the Plum one but I preferred the smell of the Strawberry flavor.
These are pretty nice and I'm quite happy that they've finally come out with some fun stick lip balms. The skincare lines have their own stick balms but not in as many fun flavors as the Born Lippy line (though I do find those more moisturizing)!

Have you checked these out yet?
