Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in Cherry - Swatches

Fresh Tinted Lip Treatment is one of my favourite lip balms as they hydrate the lips without feeling sticky and add a flattering tint of color at the same time. I purchased the newest shade Cherry off Ebay recently.

Cherry is a well-pigmented cheerful red with the signature light lemony blackcurrant scent of the Tinted Lip Treatments. It lays down a bright pop of color on the lips from the very first pass, so I usually just wear this alone. It is rather expensive for a lip balm at US$22.50 but the quality and sleek metal packaging are well worth the price tag.

This glides onto the lips with a comforting balmy texture that is not oily or sticky. It does transfer at the slightest touch though so you may need to reapply after a meal or drink. It last well through about 3-4 hours and does not stain the lips. However, these do have a tendency to go soft or even break off in the tube if the weather gets too hot so do be careful to store them in a cool area.

My collection of the Fresh lip treatments is missing only Petal which looked too pale for my liking.

Compared with the other shades, Cherry is the closest to Coral, which appears to have been discontinued as it is no longer listed on and does not feature in the new slew of Fresh holiday lip sets. Cherry is just a smidge more red than Coral, but if you already have Coral, you can probably skip Cherry for now.

If you are interested in Cherry, Sephora Singapore will be stocking the holiday lip sets which are good for trying out the different shades in mini sizes.

This is my favorite tinted lip balm as well! I love the original Rose shade and go through the tubes way too fast! The full size is actually slightly cheaper in Singapore (US$22.50 vs S$29), especially after the Sephora 10% discount and UOB 3% rebate. Not sure if there are better deals online but am just glad the prices are not too marked up locally compared to other US brands such as Benefit. Am looking forward to the Xmas collections! :)
