Fresh Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Fresh Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment

I love a good tinted lip balm for a hint of color that goes with even the most casual look.  And thanks to Sephora’s birthday gift this year (a set of two mini Fresh Sugar lipbalms), I know that am a fan of the Fresh lip balm formula.   I’ve had my eye on Fresh Sugar Plum for a while now.

Texture-wise, Fresh lip balms are extremely soft, and seem like they would melt very easily.  However, despite very hot temperatures where I live (90s and up), that hasn’t happened – though of course I’m in air conditioning the majority of the time.

In terms of performance, I find Fresh lip balm moisturizing, healing, and long lasting – but not quite AS healing as Jack Black lip balm.

Fresh Sugar Plum: one swipe, many swipes

In terms of color, Fresh Sugar Plum is more sheer than I expected.  It is not very buildable – as you can see from the swatch, you can build the color a little bit, but multiple swipes aren’t much more pigmented than one swipe.   Because I have fairly pigmented lips, it doesn’t show up very well on me – it would show up much better on someone with less pigmented lips. Because it’s subtle, I have photographed both my lips without any product and with Fresh Sugar Plum.

No product; Fresh Sugar Plum applied

Overall, I feel undecided about Fresh Sugar Plum. It’s a high quality product, but given my natural lip color, I’m not sure it’s worth the price for me.
