*My Experience with the Lip Butters:*
  • Price: A set of 3 cake kisses costs $24 CAD, which means each container costs $8. 
  • Weight of the product: 6 grams or 0.2 oz per container
  • Shelf -life: 24 months 
  • Effectiveness:  The product goes on smooth giving  my lips a beautiful and healthy sheer. The butters are light in that do not leave a heaviness or greasiness on the lips. Finally, the product hydrates and protects my lips really well from the harsh winds and cold in Calgary.  
  • Con: They do not have SPF protection. =( 
  • Scent: They smell sweet and delicious!
  • Bottom line: Best lip butters I have ever used. I am definitely going to repurchase these lip butters and I recommend for those who face hard winters.  
  • Grade: 7.5/10

Sooooo expensive! How can your splurge on these kinds of things?

Nice review! I've been tempted to try Cake products but I can't justify the price. And reading your review it sounds to me that it's nothing to write home about. :)

You gotta try their mulberry sorbet. http://www.cakebeauty.com/prodinfo.asp?pid=93 Best flavor ever!

@M.: These were given to me as a gift actually. I don't think at this point of my life I can justify paying $8 per tin. When I return my student loans then I will consider such a splurge.

@ Jenny: It's pretty good. I like the lip butters; I have higher expectations of the product. It hyped it up in my head and was slightly disappointed when I tried it out.

@ Gigi: I wish I got the mulberry sorbet instead of the Carmel cream. I like fruity things way better than sweet candy flavors.

You're photos are so pretty. I stumbled upon your blog and love it. I was wondering if the lip butters clog pores around the mouth area? I can't afford to have anymore pimples... TIA
