Bare Minerals Loud & Clear Lip Sheer Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals Loud Clear Lip Sheer Spring 2013

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.

Bare Minerals Loud and Clear Lip Sheer

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.

Bare Minerals Loud Clear Lip Sheer Compared Lip Bud

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.

    I wondered about these. I was thinking they may be like Clinique’s Almost Lipstick? Yes? No? I’m glad to hear you like them!

    Have you tried any of the new Lancome Baume in Loves? I got Urban Ballet, the neon pink one, and it’s AWESOME. Wish it wasn’t LE.

        I didn’t really swatch the blushes so I can’t say (I immediately was drawn to the Baumes lol, translucent neon lip products are my kryptonite) but I think you will looooove the Baumes though I can only vouch for Urban Ballet, I dunno how much the other colors (especially the light pink) will show up, but Urban Ballet surprised me.

    I loved the original Lip Bud. I think I still have one myself, somewhere; now I’ll have to look for it. (Although it may have been tossed with the last lipstick purge???)

    The only thing that has me a little worried IS the tangerine flavor/fragrance. Sometimes anything with citrus or mango makes my lips chap. I don’t remember the original lip bud having a fragrance or taste. Is that the only difference that you have found?

    Other than my initial recoil to a srong fragrance/taste – these look absolutely lovely.

      someone that remembers lip bud bless be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-D I didn’t want to toss my last one…;-D it’s so gorgeous but I prob shouldn’t use it since it is aging lol! they are actually nothing like lip bud aside from the looks…they have a slicker feel that the original lip bud something mentioned they are like clinique barely lipstick and that’s quite spot on ;-D they def have a strong taste/scent though :(

    I swatched them on my wrist and saw zero color at all but maybe i’ll give the tangerine a try — they are super, super sheer that’s for sure.

      you have to apply a few layers lisa and color will show through but yes, they are sheer ;-D it’s more natural color

    These look like the Apivita lip care with pomegranate which I love. I will have to give them a try.

    I was an avid Lip Bud and Lippie user, which shade of the Loud & Clear do you find is the closest? I’m mourning the loss of my last Lip Bud and I would love to know your take on what’s closest!
