I am a huge fan of FRESH tinted lip balms but this one doesn't perform like them! I expected it to be even better due to the "advanced" formula but i find the untinted version to perform better.
When i wear this lipbalm before going to bed, i wake up with weird lips, they feel like cardboard and it lasts all day!
Really disappointed by this product!

This is the second time i purchase this sunscreen and for me it is a miracle to repurchase something!
I use SS 365 days a year so i try a lot of them and this one is really good for a physical SS.
It is light, no greasy finish but a satin matte one, no white cast and doesn't make me super oily during the day.
No blemishes or allergic reactions and price is ok.

Obviously you think this is a dupe for FRESH sugar lip balms but for me it is not, except for the packaging.

FRESH balms last much longer whereas Kiehl's version has short staying power.

Texture is similar but FRESH balms are a bit more greasy and thicker, i can swipe the kiehl's one several times without piling too much product on my lips.

FRESH balms …

This is discontinued, i found it on sale at my local sephora a while ago.
It has good coverage, looks natural when applied with a large powder brush but does not keep me matte at all! I still get very shiny with this powder.

On my pigmented lips this is a kind of a plummy MLBB shade. I don't see any brown in it but definitely a plummy rose nude that suits my nc35 complexion really well for a natural but well defined lip. I like to pair this with whirl lip liner.
The formula is creamy and non drying but i don't find it very long lasting.

This foundation is amazing! I have the most oily skin on earth and it stays put all day! Of course i still get shiny during the day but it also depends of which powder i use on top of this or which moisturizer.
Coverage is really good but the key is to use a little bit and work each area individually. It works great with a beautyblender! but don't put to much at first otherwise it will …

It's the second time i purchase this powder, i also have it in the loose version but haven't opened it yet (yes too much make up...). I like to use this after the velvet matte skin tint, it is sheer and transparent but fixes perfectly the foundation without leaving a powdery finish. It gives a luminous glow so don't expect it to keep skin ultra matte because it won't, i still …Read more
