Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Plum

Happy Tuesday friends! Today I'm back with Fresh's Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Plum* ($26 CAD/0.15 oz). I've always been curious about the berry toned shades of the Sugar Lip Treatment line, and Plum is described as a "sheer sensual plum" colour by Sephora. With a description like that, how could I not be intrigued?

"Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 blends reparative oils and waxes with real sugar, a natural humectant, for delectable and dependable moisture. Sweet and tart black currant oil, rich in plumping essential fatty acids, cushions the lips while antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols and vitamins A, C, and E provide protection from wrinkle-causing free radicals. It provides essential, year-round protection from damaging UV rays." - Sephora

Fresh's Sugar Lip Treatments come packaged beautifully in metal tubes that twist up. The tubes are colour-coded to match the shade of the lip balm, making it easy to find the right shade in a hurry. These balms have a citrus scent that I really like, but you might want to give it a sniff before purchasing to make sure that you like it too.

Plum is a very sheer berry toned colour with a very shiny finish. This is definitely more in the category of tinted lip balm rather than lipstick. Fresh's Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments seem to vary in pigmentation, so there should be something for everyone's taste in this line. I do wish that this shade was a little bit more pigmented, but it's still a nice berry colour that's easy to apply on the go.

This formula contains SPF 15, so it's perfect for year-round wear! This balm feels very thick and creamy, and it hydrates my lips for about 4 hours before I need to reapply. Since this balm is so creamy, it does have a tendency to get soft when it's hot out. This isn't something that I would feel comfortable leaving in the car on a hot day, as it probably will melt.

Overall, these lip balms from Fresh are such a pampering product. They are very expensive at $26 a pop, but you get what you pay for. I think that these would make a great gift, and there are 10 different shades to choose from! I have a few more shades to share with you, so check back for those reviews! :) Have you tried any of Fresh's Sugar Lip Treatments? Which shade is your favourite?
