As you know Bare Minerals launched three Loud & Clear Lip Sheers with their new Remix Collection for Spring 2013. Loud & Clear Lip Sheer is a sweet little tinted lip balm that quite reminds me of one my favorite vintage products from Bare Minerals, the Lip Bud.
Unsure how many folks remember the Lip Bud but it was very similiar to the Loud & Clear Lip Sheers and I stock piled them all crazy-like and still have one lonely one left. Needless to say the introduction of these new Lip Sheers was met with much excitement by yours truly.
Let’s take a look!
Although my Lip Bud looks a little larger both products actually house the same 0.07 oz of product. I think they are a kindly $15 and I would happily buy more of them if Bare Escentuals choose to do new shades. I’m unsure if these are limited edition and I’d like to think they aren’t because they are fabulous little balms well worth picking up.

These are a tinted lip balm that have a translucent appearance in the tube. They apply with the barest hint of color but enough color that you can see it on lips. I love natural tinted lip balms that give the appearance of just the right amount of color without overdoing things. These give exactly that sort of finish. It’s not necessarily an MLBB (my lips but better) look but it is natural and fresh so you can tell you have something on your lips but not exactly what that something might be…”is it tinted? Or is that her natural lip color?”
These have a comfortably lightweight balm-y texture on my lips. They provide a decent bit of moisture through the first application and well into the wear of three to four hours. They glide onto lips with a soft, smooth, buttery texture and providing not only a hint of tint but also a very lovely bit of shine. They have a really fresh and exciting tangerine scent and taste. I absolutely loved it. It’s pretty strong and remains flavorful through the wear. The flavor reminds me of one of those old school frozen orange ice pops.

If you love tinted lip balm products I know these will find a way into your stashes and heart.
I loved ’em.
Overall, an excellent way to get a bit of color and shine on lips while keeping them soft, smooth, and hydrating.
