Fresh Tinted Lip Treatments are these nifty little balms that I like to collect but not enough to pay full price for regular shades. Thanks to Sephora kits, I got to try most of the shades available.
Last fall there was a kit with four of these lip balm and one (useless on me) sugar scrub and I grabbed it as a toys.
The three shades I review today are Cherry. Fig and Ruby. Two of which I considered buying (phew, I am glad I didn't).
Swatch of Cherry, Ruby and Fig. The formula seems consistent across the board:Thick, glossy and nourishing. It's a formula that I can use to prevent evaporation and plump away lip lines.
These are incredibly wobbly inside the tube so several of my minis already broke during application.
Cherry is a bright, very pigmented but not opaque red (not sure warm or cool) that looks really bright and garish on my mouth during winter and summer. I guess my skintone never settles into a shade on which the shade is wearable. I haven't given up yet. Autumn equinox is coming up.
Ruby is a clear raspberry shade with deeper berry shimmer that forms a veil like sheen. The shade doesn't do much on me and frankly I don't like these subtle shimmer without much impact...
Speaking of impact. Here comes one with mega watt impact. Sugar Fig is a clear murky brown berry with a crap load of chunky same-sized silver glitter. And oh yes, the glitters travel around like a trustfund kid.
I don't get this color, I assume it's a nod to the 90s and made for members of Destiny's Child.
Overall: I hate two of the colors and could do without the boring sheeny Sugar Ruby. But at least I really like the set, which gave me effective lip balms, quick toys and it stopped me from blowing full price on any one of them.
