MAC Cheery Cherry Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm
MAC Cheery Cherry Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm

MAC Cheery Cherry Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm ($19.50 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy mid-tone blue pink.” In the tube, it looks like a light-medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and an iridescent pink pearl. It doesn’t impart much color–it adds a slight pinker tinge to my lips and a glossy shine. There is only a hint of shimmer, so it looks like a glossy balm or clear gloss (so dupes abound).

MAC Sweet Tooth Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm ($19.50 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy lilac.” In the tube, it’s a cool-toned pink-lavender with subtle gold pearl. It has a slightly milky pink appearance on lips, so it emphasizes the natural pink coloring found in my lips but doesn’t impart much color. Instead, it’s mostly a glossy sheen and product that evens out my lips while keeping lips somewhat hydrating.

MAC’s Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm formula is just so-so for a lip balm–it’s nowhere near as hydrating as many other well-known lip balms (and not as good as MAC’s own Tinted Lip Conditioner). I could hardly tell the difference between the two of them applied, so I don’t think having both is necessary–unless you’re a huge fan of the formula! If it were as moisturizing as it was made out to be, I’d like it a lot more, but it’s just so hard to get excited over a product that’s this sheer and only a lightly hydrating when worn (but gave me no lasting moisture). The wear time on these two shades was around two hours, but I have no problem admitting that it was very hard to tell, since there was a lot of color to track–I mostly went on sheen and shimmer and a magnifying mirror.

B-
It isn't as hydrating as other lip balms I've tried, and it wears away really quickly, so it needs to be frequently reapplied.

    I picked up Sweet Tooth today… Not necessarily because I thought it was great, but because I bought a few Satin lipsticks that I absolutely LOVE the color of… But hate the finish! I probably could have found a more affordable alternative, but it did the job :)
