Fresh Sugar Passion Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15

The Fresh tinted lip treatments are lip treatments that leave a beautiful tint of color in its wake.  Or you have the choice of clear if you prefer your lip treatments to be colorless.  There are currently four different tints in the line plus the clear treatment.  I tried all of them at Sephora before settling on Passion.  They all have the same lemony-citrus taste and glide on buttery smooth.  The texture is so silky and light, you hardly feel like there is anything on your lips.  The product is housed in metal packaging that screws open and closed, so there's no way this is busting open in your bag.  Simply twist up and apply.

Passion may look like a scary bright crimson in the tube, but it actually goes on to give you a just bitten flush of red on the lips.  It's tinted enough that you may not want to apply without a mirror.  Passion brings a nice healthy bit of color to your face without being too obvious.  I found this color to be the most flattering on me.  The Rose treatment was pretty too, but was close to clear on my lips.

Below are a couple swatches.  The swatch on the left is heavier with two swipes.  The right swatch is just one pass of the product.


Are the Fresh lip treatments worth the $22.50 for just a balm?  Many lip products claim to be moisturizing or nourishing on the lips, especially lately with the whole tinted lip balm trend.  But in my experience, the Fresh lip treatments are the only true balm product that actually improves the condition of your lips while adding some color.  The SPF is also a bonus.  When my lips feel parched or abused by other less nourishing lip products, a day of wearing this products restores my lips to normal.  I'm sure if I used the clear overnight my lips would be as soft and plushy as the pillow I rested my head on.  So for me, I would absolutely purchase this again, and I would recommend this to anyone.


  1. I love fresh products! I haven't tried the tinted balms (yet) but love the original one.

    Fresh lemon sugar is my go to summer scent, so lovely!

  2. I think I'm going to ask you to put these on for me on Saturday. I like how the colors aren't too bold or strong and they ACTUALLY nourish your lips? BI-winning!
