Firstly, I love the design and the fact that you can attach it to something for safe keeping. After a while of applying however, the pointy shape goes a bit flat so you wither have to use a brush or dunk your finger in which kind of defeats the purpose of the design overall. Still, it offers good protection from the elements and looks funky. Plus t is easy to apply for the first couple of months. I'll probably stick to my usual stick lip balms.
