Unfortunately, yes. But to be honest, I didn't expect much from this product. It was more of an impulse buy at CVS, and I just convinced myself that I needed to try it. Well I did, and i'm sorry to report that it's nothing exciting - really.
I got the clear (in Peppermint), because I figured I could always use it for the winter when my lips get chapped. They do come in different shades - pink, purple and so forth. My issue with the shades, is that the lip balm stick is very thick, therefore making the application of color rather difficult. It was only $4 so I guess there was really no harm done, but if you're looking for the latest and greatest lip balm I don't think this one is it. Further, Baby Lips has an "8 hour hydration" claim which I can assure you it does not last that long.
Sorry for the Negative Nancy review guys, i'll try to review something I really like next to make up for it! =)
