I reseived a package of Chap Stick True Shimmer. I recieved the Peppermint Rush flavor. It comes in the usual ChapStick packaging and tube with .15 oz of product. According to the box the product came in it reads "Healthy Looking lips are noticable with a subtle shine". First thing when opening the cap to this product was the scent. It has a very distinct Peppermint scent. It's not extreamly strong but you can smell it. It's actually a fairly nice scent. The color of the product is a medium blue color. It goes on your lips clear though so no worries of walking around with blueish tinted lips for hours. When I first opened the product I took note of the scent and the coloring I failed to notice one fairly important aspect of this product....The Shimmer.That's right - it's like putting glitter on your lips. It must not be so noticable the first time you pull the cap off the product because I did NOT notice it when I first opened it up but after appling the product to my lips the first time and then looked in the mirror I was literally said "WOW!" out loud. It is seriously like painting glitter onto your lips. It's not a bad thing unless you really don't like that look. It's really glossy it just has little glitter in it. It does make your lips "shimmer" but I was not totally prepared for this effect.

Other then the glitter factor the product is very good. It softenes my lips and makes them feel soothed and cool when they are chapped or get that dry cracked feeling. The product lasts for about three hours or less depending on what activity you are doing (drinking, eating, ect...) so be prepared to reapply in at least 4 hours if not sooner depending on how dry and cracked your lips are.
