Lately I just can't shut up about how much I love sheer lip products, and I've got a new favorite to share today. A few weeks ago I was sent the new shades of the Fresh Sugar Cream Lip Treatments,* and I've already added the three original shades to my wishlist. I haven't heard many people talking about these, so I think we've got a bit of an underrated gem on our hands here.
The Fresh Sugar Cream Lip Treatments are meant to combine skincare and makeup, giving the look of a soft, creamy gloss with the nourishment of a lip balm. Everyone talks about their original tinted lip balms, but I think these are even better. They feel so plush and luxurious on the lips, and while the tinted balms can feel a bit slippy at times, these stay firmly in place. Reapplying certain lip balms throughout the day can end up irritating my lips, but these keep them smooth and nourished no matter how many times I apply more. It sticks around for quite a long time for a moisturizing lip product - it actually feels a little like the Glossier Lip Gloss.
All six shades have a subtle shimmer running through them that gently enhance the lips without ever feeling gritty or goopy. I have the three newest shades, and I've been rotating through them interchangeably over the past few weeks. They're quite sheer, so there's not too much of a difference between shades on the lips. I think this makes them such a good everyday product though, and they make great lip toppers since a lipstick or lip liner color will show through.
The colors I have are Pearl, a subtle pearly pink, Gilt, a warm shimmering gold, and Baby, a sheer baby pink. I think my favorite of the three is Pearl because of the opalescent sheen it gives the lips, but they're all just beautiful. I've been on the hunt for a product that will give me the look of the Desi x Katy Lip Gloss with Dose of Colors that just came out (still trying to limit my spending), and I feel like Gilt gives a very toned-down version of that look. And Baby is perfect for adding a soft flush of color to the lips. It's the least sheer of the three I have.
Like I said, using these three shades has got me itching to get the other three. They all seem like perfect shades for everyday. Have you tried any of the Sugar Cream Lip Treatments?
