Giveaway: The Perfect Fresh Lip

Jan 4, 2012

I’ve talked about how much I adore Fresh’s Sugar Plum Lip Treatment (right) before on the blog.  It provides the perfect hint of sheer berry color and is as flattering as Clinique’s beloved Black Honey Almost Lipstick.  It also smells divine and moisturizes surprisingly well.

I loved the product so much, that when I saw that Fresh was selling a shade of sheer rose and shade of sheer red, I knew that I had to own them.  And I am pleased to report that they are just as divine as their darker sibling.

So I thought, in the name of a happy New Year, why not spread the love around?

This giveaway is for a Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment ($23) in your chosen shade.  To enter, list the name of your favorite lipstick, gloss or lip tint–shade and brand–in the comments.  One entry per person, please remember to add your email when you sign in so I can contact you.  Drawing will take place Sunday night, and the winner will be announced Monday.

    I like slot of lip glosses but have yet to find one that I love… So my most honest answer would have to be good old cherry flavored chopstick. But as I'm getting older an my lips are losing color, I'm realizing that I need to step up my game. Maybe this brand will be my new go to?

    I can be a bit of a cheapskate. . .I just got NYC's “16 Hour Smooch Proof Lip Stain,” in Endless Spice, and I have to say – it really does work, and I love the color!

  5. Nora says:

    Bite Luminous Creme Lipstick in Musk

  6. Giorgio Armani Sheer Lipstick #9 is my go-to right now. It's a sheer berry that's good for fall and winter. In spring and summer I switch to something more pink.

  36. E says:

  37. Dakota says:

  47. Kailey says:

    Ruby Woo – MAC

  48. Suz says:

    Chanel scintillantes lipgloss shade 146, perfect shade of a peachy pink. Looks great on all skin tones 🙂

    It used to be Buxom in Brandy, but now I am totally hooked on Sugar Plum. Thanks to Belle!

  56. Terri says:

    Cliniique – Black Honey in the silver tube (for 20 years). Works on everyone equally well.So glad the other shades are returning, I've missed them.

  57. Rachel says:

    I've been wanting to try the Fresh products, but its a bit out of budget for a young graduate with plenty of law school student loans. A budget friendly alternative I've used lately is Cover Girl Gloss Balm. I like the cabernet shade for a punch of color, and I also love the slim shape.

  58. Karen says:

    MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick

  59. Sarah says:

    Bare Escentuals Rock Candy ~ such a perfect pink!

  71. Truc says:

    At the moment, Korres mango butter lipstick in natural purple (which oddly, is not purple at all — it's the perfect “two shades darker than natural color” shade for me).

    I currently use Fresh's Sugar Plum and Regular lip balms — I can't wait to try Rose!

    Oh, this sounds great! My favorite lip tint is Burt's Bees in Rhubarb.

  83. Fresh Sugar giveaway says:

    Lancolm- Juicy Tubes in Bolole

  84. Crystal says:

    I love Burt's Bee's Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb. Still looks natural but adds a great touch!

  85. T says:

    I might have to give Black Honey a try (I did a quick sample at the clinique counter and wasn't too impressed) but Clinque's Plum Nude is a great one. And most any Sephora gloss is the perfect go-to.

    I have so many favorites–but the top one right now is Jane Iredale's cream lipstick in Kate.

  174. J says:

    Clinique High Impact in Rosette! I used to like Black Honey when it came as a lip gloss, but the Almost Lipstick formula makes my lips dry up and peel horribly. I wish they'd make it as a gloss again.

  220. Melissa says:

    When I was a teenager I died for Urban Decay Lip Gunk in Paranoid… died. I'm sure I looked a tacky mess all the time with my brown lips and bright eyeshadow. These days I am liking Revon Colorburst Lip Butter in Fig Jam for work.

  229. ~M says:

    I don't have one, but I've seen what a difference lip color makes on other people, so I'm interested in trying a few. However, lipsticks are dry and sticky, glosses are sticky and look like laquer, and chapstick types give uneven color once they soak into the lips, so I'm at a loss.
    I hope that counts because I would like to try.
