I know, I know...most over-priced lip balm ever, right? Whatever. I'm in love with this stuff and gladly shell out the CAD$26 for it. Heck, if I could afford it, I'd have every shade so I could stash them in every bag and jacket pocket I have.
I started out with a deluxe mini size of the Rose shade and loved it so much I went with a full-sized tube of Berry next. It's a beautiful darker pink shade - it's a bit darker than a shade of raspberry, but not near as dark as a shade of wine either. It's a rich, warm pink that adds a bit of colour to the lips but is far more natural looking that shiny lip butters or balms. Rather than highlighting the tips, it adds a nice healthy-looking tint that isn't shiny. It also leaves a hint of a stain as it wears off, which isn't bad as it does boost the natural colour of paler lips.
I was initially attracted to the smoothness of the Rose tinted balm, and I find that my tube of Berry is a tiny bit less emollient but still does the trick in keeping my lips beautifly smooth and flake-free. Berry lasts as long too - at least three hours for me, and that's with eating and drinking too. Of course, like any balm it'll wear off with this kind of activity, but it still leaves behind a layer of protection even after most of the colour is gone.
I also don't have to use a whole lot of this balm to get the colour and hydrating benefits from it. Of course, because I love the light lemon sugar crepe scent and it's smooth feel I do tend to slather it on, but I can see that my full-sized tube is going to last me a while, even with applying it during the day and at night. (When I apply it at night, I wake up with half as much on my lips as there was when I went to sleep. But the fact that there's any left at all in the morning is great, not to mention my lips feel so smooth and hydrated.)
The packing is great too. It's a brushed matte metal tube with a nice glow to the paint. It's got a nice heft in the hand, and I love that the lid screws on instead of being like most tubes with lids that slide off.
I will buy this brand over and over again whenever I can afford it. And that's big for me because I rarely commit to buying any product more than once.

Like all the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments, this balm has a heavenly texture, subtle lemon flavor, SPF 15, and comes in an awesome metal tube.
But man, the Berry shade is PIGMENTED. I have lipsticks with less color payoff than this. I either have to pat it on (in which case the hydration benefit is moot) or apply carefully in a mirror so I don't look deranged. I use it way less than the Rose color, hence the 4-star rating.
$22.50 for a 4.3 tube at Sephora.

I got the two-piece gift set of these balms from Sephora forever ago and, while I absolutely loved them, I never purchased a full size. The price always put me off and none of the colors really wowed me. A few trips to Sephora ago, I spotted this and just couldn't get it out of my mind. Berry lip products are my favorites and I knew this would be mine. The texture of these balms is just amazing. Soft, gloriously moisturizing, smells lovely. The packaging is gorgeous on this as well... satin/matte mulberry purple with the same twist off lid as the others. The price of this is still higher than I like but you use very little so it will go a long way. The color it leaves is just perfect as well. I'm really in love with this product.

Gosh this lip balm is a dream! I have extremely dry lips due to the humidity and heat of the country I stay in and have been continuously searching for a good lip balm (Neutrogena, Burt's Bees, MAC, Vaseline etc) and I'm very glad to say I've found the one eventually! This lip balm is very soft so I have to use it gently on my lips or it'll break but it moisturizes my lips better than any other lip balm I've ever used! It isn't sticky at all but I've realized it melts under the heat but that hasn't really been a huge issue to me. I just place them in an open area (table) instead of an enclosed one (bag). The colour is also quite pigmented. On those days when I'm just lazy to use a lip balm and a lipstick or I'm rushing, I use this. I bought this during an offer in Sephora where me and my friend bought 6 of the Fresh lip balms for 41 USD. The pack contained Sugar, Passion, Berry, Rose, Coral and Honey. I thought it was a really cheap deal and a great buy. I'm glad I bought it cuz I'm loving it ever since! However I will think again before repurchasing as each single lip balm is being sold for 23 USD. But other than the price, I think this is a fantastic product.

I can't express how much I love this product. HG status! As a Canadian student who takes the bus during these awful winters my lips tend to get dry and chapped as the months drag on. Also the cold wind dries out any type of lipstick I put on my lips, and gloss gets pretty messy. This is the first product I have used which gives significant moisture, beautiful color and wears beautifully. The packaging is top notch, I love the screw on lid and sturdy metal casing. The color is so flattering on my pale skin it reminds me of fruit punch. The formula isn't overly waxy but creates a barrier over my delicate skin which doesn't feel too heavy. The smell is pleasant and it lasts an eternity. As an added perk it goes wonderfully over drier lipsticks. I will repurchase as long as they carry this.

I went to my local Sephora determined to buy the Rose shade, because I wanted a very natural flush. However, I tried them all out on my hand anyways, and finally asked a SA to come over and help me choose. She directed me to the Rose still, but at this point I was liking the way Berry looked on my skin. So the SA cleaned them off, and let me try them on. The Rose was very nice, but I needed just a little more to play up my lip color. The Berry was perfect on, and I fell in love with it. So creamy and moisturizing. Plus I ended up getting a Rose and Clear shade for my birthday sephora gift! So Happy!
A lot of people say it is too waxy and feels like it leaves a coating on their lips. Well, technically that is what a good balm should do. If it just sinks into your lips then what is it doing to protect them from sun rays, harsh winds, and anything else? There needs to be a coating left behind to seal in that moisture and create a barrier to defend.
Far better than anything I've gotten at the Drug Store. Was turned onto them by CollegeFashion.net where they did an article on the Best Splurges and if they lived up to their hype. This one certainly did:)

Love this! Turns into a cool toned red on my lips, so moisturizing too, better than any lip balm I've ever used before.

For my birthday, I bought the Sugar Berry and Sugar Coral lipbalms. I already knew I loved the formula from the birthday gift from Sephora last year, so it was just a matter of picking out the colors. I had originally planned to get the plum version, but once in store, I was really drawn to the Sugar Berry shade. While true it is more pigmented than say Sugar Rose, it still is sheer and doesn't look like lipstick (which I love). It gives my lips this sheer wash of berry color, which can be built into a deeper color with a few more swipes. It really does brighten my face, and I throw it on with next to no makeup and it still makes me look fresh. I'm really glad I chose to go with Sugar Berry over Sugar Plum since we're going into spring soon. I'm so in love with these balms, I'm thinking about going back for more!

LOVE! I don't generally wear lipstick (maybe a old fashioned red 2-3 times a year on special occasions) but this stuff is a great daily pick-me-up for your face. It adds a pop of colour with a quick swipe. I am pretty fair and it doesn't look too dark or bright.
I get tons of compliments when I wear this - no one every comments on the lip colour, they just tend to say I look really nice or "fresh". It is my secret weapon. It is pretty expensive ($22 CAN) for a glorified lip balm, but lasts a very long time and works like a charm.
I used to be a Fresh Rose lip treatment fan (and still am) but I think this stuff looks so great in the fall and winter.

I got this as part of a gift set for Christmas. And I've been loving it ever since!
As a comparison to the freebies I received from Sephora for the 2012 birthday gift, the Berry Lip Treatment is a lot more pigmented and less waxy. The Rose one (which I thought I loved), is more sheer. With more pigment and less waxiness, it means there's a lesser chance of it being smooshed in the container like the Rose one did when it got down to an itty-bitty stump. It melts a lot less easily, I also noticed. But it is still Winter right now, so its performance in the Summer has yet to be seen.
The colour is beautiful. Also really buildable. I have never been one to do bold, dark lips, but this product offers a great way to ease into that trend. One coat gives a really pretty but mature wash of colour and more coats will give you a lipstick look.
Really like the packaging and love how it has SPF. Yes it is expensive, but it has great qualities that justify it. The only setback I noticed was a patchy application at times. But this only happens when I didn't exfoliate my lips and that will make for an uneven application for EVERY lip product. Without a doubt, my favourite part of the gift set. Will definitely repurchase when I run out!
