The Tinted Balms That Have Stolen My Heart

As a beauty blogger, what I'm about to tell you might be seen as somewhat shocking. You see, the thing is....I am not a big lipstick wearer. There, I've said it. Don't get me wrong, I own more lipsticks and colors than any one person could know what to do with, but more often than not they aren't something I reach for on a day to day basis. The reason for this is not because I don't like having a little bit of color on my lip, far from it. It has much more to do with the fact that my lips are constantly in a state of disarray - completely dried and cracked, no matter how much exfoliation and hydration I apply.

Because of this, instead of lipsticks I have been turning to some tinted balms to fill the void in my heart, and I've developed a particular love for the amazing selection from Fresh in the form of their Sugar Lip Treatment line. Packed with hydrating ingredients and SPF 15, these balms are perfect for on-the-go, making them simple for reapplication throughout the day. The line ranges from some more sheer, natural tints to full colored options, and I've slowly been collecting my way through them all.

Currently I own three colors from the line, the most recent of which is their newly released shade Nude. A sheer peach-y beige with golden shimmer, this has been my favorite shade for Spring - it's the perfect nude lip that truly gives you the look of YLBB (short for "your lips but better"). Similarly there's the shade Petal, another sheer-er color which instead adds just the slightest wash of pink to your lips for that extra bit of color. Finally I have the boldest shade of the bunch, Passion, a vibrant berry red that is my go-to for any nighttime activities.

For a minimal makeup girl like myself, this line is perfection and truly feels like it was made for me. I completely expect my color selection from the brand to keep growing over time as these guys provide the best effortless year round lip color for me.

Have any of you lot tried the Sugar Lip Treatments out yet? Any colors you'd recommend?
