According to me both 'Tiger Lily' and 'Rose' have an identical smell and sweet flavor. They smell almost very fruity and not in a very overpowering way. They don't have the minty flavor unlike the original Burt's Bees Lip Balm. 'Tiger Lily' is a sheer peach that goes on almost transparent on my pigmented lips. 'Rose' looks very bright in the tube but goes on as a sheer, rosy pink on my lips. If you are looking for tinted lipbalms that pack a lot of color, these may not be for you. They leave a beautiful hint of color and a nice dose of moisture. The texture is not waxy or overly glossy which makes them a great base for most lipsticks. I usually refrain from using tinted lip balms as a base for lipsticks but, since these are very sheer, they serve as a great base without altering the shade of the lipstick.
