The Worst No. 6: Chapstick True Shimmer, $3.99TotalBeauty.com average reader rating: 6.5*
Why: After giving this product a try, one woman says that she passed hers on to her 6-year-old who could "better appreciate the 'shimmer' that is more like large glitter." One reader received comments that she had "shimmer all over her lips and the area below" when using this product, while another says it "smells just like a chalky, berry-flavored Tums chewable tablet." "It feels like I have sand on my lips," one reader says, while another calls it "complete garbage that was created with a 5-year-old in mind." Readers with sensitive lips beware -- one woman had an allergic reaction to the product, saying it gave her "blisters and the worst chapped lips of my life."
