The formula is described as "the perfection sheer wash of colour in the comfiest, lightweight, super moisturizing formula." Here's the big takeaway... they are not that sheer; they're not a wash of color. They have medium to semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a few shades being more true medium in coverage; I just wouldn't say they're sheer nor just a wash. That medium to semi-opaque level of coverage still allows for some translucency, which gives the color a lighter look that's more like a stain.
The texture was creamy, thin, lightweight, and balm-like; I'd actually say it felt like a gel-like balm because it had the cushion-like slip of a lip balm but had the smoothing prowess of more gel-based formulas. The most impressive aspect of the formula was how little the colors sank into my lip lines and how forgiving they were with imperfections in lip texture. The wear time varied from two and a half to four hours on me, and the formula was lightly hydrating over time. They have a sweet, fruity scent (passionfruit per their website) but no discernible taste.

This is such a beautiful raspberry color and I liked how it could appear sheerer (blotted) or slightly more opaque (swiped on), but the performance was disappointing. I can't pinpoint what it is... but both of the Just A Tints that I ordered had a weird smell and initial taste on application. The taste/smell does not stick around, but it was noticeable. I felt that this wore off pretty quick and while it did leave a nice stain it bled into my outer lip lines. Only noticeable when I smiled, but there was enough bleeding around my cupids bow and directly under on my bottom lip to make me feel I need a lip liner with this which defeats the whole purpose of a tinted balm. I still think this is a pretty color, but will end up using it as a topper over drier lipsticks to give them a more berry appearance and stay more hydrated.
