Fruit Basket

ColourPop Fruit Basket Just a Tint Duo (Mini) ($10.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a new, limited edition mini-sized duo of new shades in the brand’s tinted lipstick/lip-balm formula. I’m a big fan of this formula from a big picture view, as it’s very comfortable, forgiving of lip texture, and hydrating, but like I’ve experienced in the past, both shades were a lot more pigmented than sheer (as marketed!). As long as the amped up pigmentation is a good thing, they’re nice!

Juicy Apple

Juicy Apple is a medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish with moderate shine. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and balm-like–emollient while being thin (but not clingy!) and not overly slippery (more like a lipstick). It had medium, buildable color payoff–though it was intended to have sheer coverage–that adhered evenly to my lips and wasn’t prone to emphasizing my natural texture. The color lasted nicely for four hours and felt moisturizing over time.

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.

Cherry Cherry

Cherry Cherry is a brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, lightweight consistency that was like a lipstick-lip balm hybrid in feel as it glided comfortably across my lips. It wore well for four hours and felt lightly hydrating over time. The “downside” was that it was supposed to have sheer color.
