I have had terribly dry, peeling and cracked lips my whole life. I started using either this stick or the Matcha one on my lips at night and in the morning last summer and I’ve already made it through winter without having dry lips! This is the only thing that actually moisturizes my lips and doesn’t make them worse or feel like I need to keep re-applying. Both the Macabeet and Matcha work the same for my lips, but I prefer this one for the tint. It’s very subtle and I’ve noticed that some sticks have more tint than others. I’m very fair and one of my sticks doesn’t impart much color and the other (newer one) does. This is great on my cheeks as a natural blush, too! LOVE THIS!
