MUA "love Hearts" Lip balm in "Sweet kiss"

 Recently i bought some Makeup academy products from "just4girlz.pk" (online shopping website). I was so excited to get my hands on these products because i have been meaning to try out Makeup Academy goodies since last year , when i first heard of the brand.

One of the things that i decided to get was ,this MUA Love hearts Lip balm in "Sweet kiss".
MUA claims:
"MUA have collaborated with Love Hearts to bring the sweetest lip balm collection in gorgeous collectable pots. With a moisturizing formula and a hint of color these balms are a must have."
These little gems are available in five different colors.

I got the third one from the right called "Sweet kiss". Its sort of a light pinky color , which looks totally awesome worn over a pink lipstick.
The first thing i noticed about these lip balms is that they are pretty similar to "Sleek pout polishes". As i already own one of those, i decided to do a comparison between the two products.
 Packaging:
The packaging is almost the same for both these products.The containers are plastic and come with screw on lids.The sleek one looks a bit more polished and sophisticated in my opinion.
Ingredients and Quantity:
The quantity for both these products is the same, 10g/0.34oz. The ingredients you can see and compare in the pics below . Also both these products are both Made in Taiwan" ;)
 Color, consistency and texture:
Both products look very pigmented color wise, when viewed in the pan but upon application both go pretty sheer, with a very mild tint of color.Texture wise as well, not much difference between the two.You will need a lip brush to apply the product , as using your finger is beyond unhygienic.

.Price and availability:
When i bought the sleek pout polish ,the brand was not available in Pakistan and i had to get it through a third person on facebook.Now Sleek products are available on "Just4girlz.pk" to shop online, from anywhere in Pakistan.
Sleek Pout polish:
I paid--> Pkr 950
Price on Just4girlz.pk--> Pkr 695
MUA Lip balm in "sweet kiss"--> Pkr 200 (Also available on Just4girlz.pk)
Swatches:
As i stated previously , both these products go on almost sheer when applied on their own but if applied over a lipstick , they give a very pretty shine and look great.

PROS:
Good tinted lipbalm
If your lips are not as pigmented as mine, then this will give you a nice pink tint.
Moisturizing
Affordable
Easily available.
Great smell (smells like cake batter)
Travel friendly
Three times the product , as compared to a gloss in the same price range.
CONS:
You will have to use a lip brush/ or your finger (no way around that)
If you want products with no scent, then this is not for you.
Not very pigmented.
Only available online.
