Olio E Osso® Balm

Olio E Osso® Balm is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best blush ever I'm so confused by all the reviews here saying it doesn't show up - I've found this to be the most highly-pigmented, longest-lasting blush I've ever owned (I have No.3, obviously)! Great smell, great sheer color. While I might not've splurged on such a pricey product, I'm so grateful a friend gave one to me as a gift because I'm a total convert to this product now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All time favorite Fell in love with this brand and no. 1 for cuticles, lips and face. Tried no. 3 and did not disappoint!! Everything I ever dreamed of for a lip/cheek color and moisturizer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lip balm I bought this after reading about it online as a lip and cheek tint. It is fabulous as a lip tint. I love the rosy color it gives my lips without looking like you are wearing a full lipstick. It’s easy to put on and the unique shape of the tube is fun. The smell/ flavor is also great. I have only tried once as a cheek tint and find it doesn’t work as well. The color doesn’t show up great on my skin tone and it seems greasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Pick-Me-Up! What a shot of espresso does for a sleepy head, this product does for on-the-go beauty. I’m in the Williamsburg store pretty often after being out with the dog Saturday mornings and purchased this on a whim in the No. 3 shade. It made my lips buttery soft in seconds and got the sheer wash I wanted, like a faded out lipstick. I would love/recommend an option with more pigment because this product is foolproof and the formula is spot on. Bonus: It gave my cheeks a cute windy-bike ride finish! I’m proud of a brand as influential as Madewell for promoting cruelty-free brands. While not vegan due to natural beeswax, there is no palm oil which is a big old NO for protecting the planet. Sure it’s a bit pricey compared to Chaptick but think of all the good products like these do in addition to being so pretty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I don't get the hype Much like the other reviewer, I was disappointed by this product. I don't see what the big deal is. I have fair skin, and it is not noticeable at all on my lips and barely on my cheeks. I have a chapstick tint that is cheaper and much better. The only reason I gave it two stars is the smell is nice and the packaging is cute. Save your money!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seriously there is no tint! I don't know if there was something up with the batch that my no. 3 was in, but there's hardly any pigment at all in this, which is what I was looking forward to. Wish I read the reviews before buying because they are true. *Aside from the lack of color, this is a very nice balm on the lips. It's just not worth 30 bucks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overrated! I fell for the hype and as previously stated, this is pretty packaging at a hefty price. I am fair skinned and it barely shows on my lips or cheeks. Waste of money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing special I waited a while for this product, as it had been backordered. I had read positive things about it, but I don’t get the hype. It barely shows up on my fair to medium skin tone. It doesn’t seem to have staying power either. Nope. Wouldn’t recommend it.
