TerraTint Bloom Lipbalm SPF 8
More on opaque side
If you want color and coverage- this product is for you. Not sure why they called it a "tint", it's much more opaque than that. I have tried Bloom, Blaze and Garnet and this is the most natural on me. Since it has more of a coverage factor, I just dot a little on my lips and add regular lipbalm over it. It also is a bit drying and matte (because of the mineral content?) so adding lipbalm over it helps alleviate this. Bloom is a dusty rose, Blaze is a earthen mineral red, and Garnet is a subdued plum. All lean towards more earthy and muted instead of bright- which I like. Would have given it more stars if it was actually a tint and if I didn't need to put something over it for moisture and shine.

I thought this was a nasty color -hated it- looked very fake. I also tried the colors called Blaze (WOW, I was really pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this color! It is a very light red, kind of a sheer red, not a harsh one. It really makes the lips look natural) and Garnet (this was a purplish color - OK, but a little too dark. If you love purple-tinted lipsticks, you'd probably like that one). The only drawback to this product in my opinion is that it isn't the moistest product and makes my lips feel slightly on the dryish side. If I layer the product on by using more, that really helps a lot. Also, the staying power isn't wonderful, but this doesn't claim to be an actual lipstick. All in all, if you can find the color in this batch that looks best on you, then it's worth it. I love the Blaze color and will definite re-order it when I run out.

Love this product
I just love the TerraTint lip balms. I have several colors. I no longer use lipstick, just these balms. I did not like lipstick anyway but had to have some color, so these are great. The lip balm colors are nice, I have a light one and a dark one. They feel good on the lips. I take it with me everywhere.

LOVE this product!!!
I found this lipbalm on the site by accident but since I like the Alba products I thought I'd give it try, especially since there were so many positive reviews. I used to buy Burt's Bees but now I'm hooked on Alba. I am blonde with really light skin and this shade is perfect. The garnet shade was too dark for me. The TerraTint Bloom adds a little color and looks very natural, feels nice on my lips, and it has sunscreen. Oh yeah, and the price is incredible! It's cheaper than Burt's Bees and nicer. It seems to stay on longer and doesn't have that strong peppermint smell. I didn't mind the peppermint but it was too strong for my nieces. I don't wear lipstick too much anymore because this is all I need. I love it so much I bought a bunch and have them in my car, purse, bathroom, etc. I even bought some to give as gifts. I gave my nieces one also because they're teens and it looks nice and natural. You can't go wrong with this product!

Color is a bit opaque
I thought it would be more sheer. The color would be beautiful if it were, but it looks more like clay on my lips. Feels a bit waxy, like its laying on top of your skin, I guess thats the best way I can describe it. Maybe its just the color pigments that are in this. The other color I tried doesnt feel like this. I probably won't use this at all, as there really wasn't anything I liked about it, except the price.

The tinted color is quite soft. The product goes on smoothly, altho I'm on my 2nd lip balm already. Doesn't seem to be alot in the tube, but it's worth it. Lovely!

LOVE THIS LIP BALM
All the colors of this all natural lip balm are wonderful, they are all natural, like wearing nothing at all and have great color. I have all the colors and I have permanently thrown out all my lipsticks, I will never go back to those again. Try these, you won't be sorry

My lips are always dry and I ALWAYS wear lipstick or higher end lip balms. I bought 3 different colors of Alba Terra Tints and I am extremely satisfied. Price is excellent, as is the product. My lips are soft, moisturized and beautifully colored. The color and moisture last a very long time which surprised me. I am throwing out all of my lipsticks and will not go back as long as I can purchase this product. Variety of colors is good. Thanks Alba!

Perfect Subtle Color...
Ordered this on a whim becasue i have yet to find a nice delicate peach lip balm or gloss and i was pleasantly suprised by this one :). It gives a nice subtle color more of an enhancement than coverage but does it well in one coat. I have very dry lips in general so it could stand to be a bit more moisturizing but i put a clear gloss over it when needed anyway.
The color lasts well, its not a lipstick so dont expect it to wear like one but the advantage to that is that it doesnt feather or leave a ring around your lips as it wears off. I really apprecite how natural this balm is all the way through. If your going to have something on your lips you might as well feel safe for the inevitable ingestion of it.
