bareMinerals Amped Pink Loud & Clear Lip Sheer
Just a Sheer Tint of Color
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.
The formula has a really nice glide-on texture that’s not sticky, too wet/slick, and is very comfortable to wear. It adds hydration to lips not just during wear but beyond it, too, and after wearing it for half a day or longer, I can get away with not reaching for another lip balm for at least as long. As described, the color is sheer and just a tint of color, so it acts as a lip stain/lip balm hybrid. Amped Pink wore for three hours on me. There is a noticeable sweet, orange scent and flavor, though the flavor is less noticeable.
