These are very, very sheer Lip Balms. Their aim is to moisturize and protect the lips while giving a whisper of color and shimmer. The colors look intense in the pot - but - they are quite sheer when worn.
The swatch photos can give you an idea of the transparency - some of the images show the balm in a melted state, as it would be on your lips.
Some are more sheer than others - they are listed here in order of depth of color along with a rating as to just how transparent they are - SUPER SHEER being barely detectable all the way to MEDIUM SHEER being equivalent to a very sheer brand of lipstick where there is color - but it is still not an opaque type of coverage.
If you are looking for solid, lipstick like color and coverage this is not the item for that.
Deep Hyacinth - A sheer gloss of violet pink. This is the deeper version of the Hyacinth we used to have, this one actually has color.
Sheer Plum - A subtle hint of plum purple sheen - VERY SHEER.
Fuschia Frost - A soft wash of violet pink with a subtle shimmer - VERY SHEER
Black Currant - A medium sheer shade that will tint your lips a sheer red purple shade with a tiny hint of shimmer. MEDIUM SHEER
These are all natural lip tints made with our moisturizing lip balm* plus tint and mineral color.
The colors may look dramatic, but the look on your lips is totally sheer. The Natural shade is barely there, while some of the deeper shades like Mahogany and Eggplant have a bit more color to them, but still just a nice wash of tint - not lipstick. The natural ingredients help moisturize and protect your lips, while still feeling soft but never waxy.
The last photo shows some of the colors swatched on white paper to show the true sheerness of the color. These look very natural and would be great for little girls too.
