bareMinerals Tangerine Trance Loud & Clear Lip Sheer

bareMinerals Tangerine Trance Loud & Clear Lip Sheer ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “sheer citrus orange.” It’s a sheer, warm orange when swatched. Applied, it tints my lips a noticeable warm tangerine–not too red, not too orange. It’s the least like my natural lip color, but from a normal distance, it really looks natural and not at all like I’m wearing a lip color. Benefit Cha Cha is similar in color, but it has a very different formula.

bareMinerals Amped Pink Loud & Clear Lip Sheer

bareMinerals Amped Pink Loud & Clear Lip Sheer ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “sheer fuchsia pink.” When swatched, it was a sheer medium pink–it read neutral, almost yellow-toned, even though it certainly looked fuchsia in the tube. On lips, it made my lips look brighter, pinker, and generally kept the corpse-lip look at bay. It has a soft shine to finish it off. NARS Beverly Hills is slightly darker.

bareMinerals Berry Remix Loud & Clear Lip Sheer

bareMinerals Berry Remix Loud & Clear Lip Sheer ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “sheer ripe berry.” When swatched, it looks like a sheer, glossy berry pink. Applied, it tints my lip color to a slightly darker pink, but it still looks sheer and natural. It looked similar to NARS Beverly Hills or NARS Cadaques (or really, a mix).
