I gotta say that Fresh Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment caught my attention right away and I knew I NEEDED to own it, make it mine, and possibly live happily ever after with it.
My happily ever afters are reserved for Fresh Rose Tinted Lip Treatment because Plum has broken my heart….
A gloried lip balm that moisturizes, repairs, and protects the lips while giving lips a deep plum color!
Fresh Sugar Plum Lip Treatment sports the same great formula as the Rose version. It has a gorgeous fresh sugary lemon sweet taste, a moisturizing balmy formula that makes lips feel hydrated and smooth, plus it’s tinted with a deep plum shade to give your pout a kiss of color.
As much as I wanted to adore this I must say if you already own the Rose version, stick with it or buy another one to replace it if you’re running low because Fresh Sugar Plum is VERY uneventful in my opinion.
Unlike the Rose version which gives my lips a subtle flushed pink finish, this ends up applying a bit brown and quite unflattering….
First off, I noticed that instead of the berry plum I expected the shade leans towards being a dark, dull wine shade. If you’re lips are pigmented the finish will come across a bit brown and if your lips are paler you’ll see more of a unflattering dirty wine shade. Bottom line, the shade is very unflattering in my humblest. I guess the name, “Plum”, does imply that it will apply as such but I just assumed it would be more of a berry shade and not this brownish purple shade…le sigh.
In terms of pigmentation it actually doesn’t have as much as the Rose version. It’s enough to look dull on lips, no worries there, but isn’t nearly as pigmented as the Rose version was.
Pet peeve…but I’m not a big fan of the screw top lid on this or my Rose one. Basically you have to unscrew the lid each time you use it…I have little patience for this, please just give me something I can pop on and off, let’s not get too technical here.
- Anyone looking for a hydrating lip treatment with a hint of plum brown color!
- Anyone who likes tasty lip treatments (This is deliciously flavored and scented)!
- Anyone who’s looking for more of a rich berry finish.
- Those sensitive to flavored or scented lip treatments!
The lip treatment itself is as fabulous as the original Fresh Lip Treatment and the Rose one however it’s the shade that I have the real beef with. I find it very unflattering and just simply a strange color…can’t even figure out what shade it is, a little purple, a little brown, WTH?
If you’ve never experience Fresh’s Lip Treatments before I suggest the original or Rose one or if you’re planning to top off and purchase a new one I’d go with what you know because this Plum version is rather dull and not nearly as nice as ones I’ve tried prior.
Crushed because I <3 Fresh.
