Do you love watermelon, but despise the sugar content and those darn seeds? Covergirl's lipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Ruby Twist delivers a sweet dose of fruit without having to count calories or deal with sticky fingers.

Not quite robust as its namesake, Ruby Twist still passes for a low-maintenence, everyday colour. If you're a fan of Clinique's Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry, Ruby Twist is a budget-friendly dupe without the hint of mint.

The goods…

  • Available in 16 colours
  • Glossy lips without feeling tacky/sticky
  • Shea and mango butters help keep your lips feeling soft
  • It's cheap and cheerful

The mehs…

  • The cap came off the tube and coloured the contents of my purse, be careful :P
  • The scent reminds me of Crayola Crayons and I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing
  • Not available in Australia yet -- get on it Covergirl!
  • Lasts up to four hours
