There are 8 different shades. They are meant to be a sheer balm, not intensely pigmented.
1- First Impressions:
- I heard these balms were just that, balms...with a hint of color. Honestly, that's one of the reasons I tried this product before Revlon's Lip Butters.
- I thought there was a good color selection. The color I chose, Caramel Comfort, is one of the 2 nude shades available. I was hoping for a sheer wash of color, mainly something to wear with a nude lipliner.
- I was happy when I tried on the color after purchasing (there's no way to see the color before hand in the store). It was exactly what I was looking for.
- This product is SO moisturizing!

- For me, this product definitely lives up to its claim. It moisturizes and gives a hint of sheer color.
- I was very happy I decided to purchase.
- Grade: A
- I thought they had a good variety of colors. I'm sure they're waiting to see how the product does before bringing out more colors, but I think for an initial launch there was a good selection.
- There isn't much pigmentation to these, but they don't claim to be pigmented. They are described as a tinted SPF lip balm. Since they aren't supposed to be too pigmented I'm not holding it against L'Oreal. If someone wants a more pigmented product, they should probably avoid this one. Since I bought it mainly because it was sheer, I love it.
- Grade: B +
4- Overall Thoughts:
- Love this product! I'm glad I didn't listen to reviews which urged to pass this product because of it's lack of pigmentation. It does exactly what it says--it's a tinted balm with SPF which moisturizes lips. Had I been in the market for a more pigmented product I might've been disappointed, but since I purchased it because I wanted a sheer color I'm very happy.
- This product is SPF which is great.
- I later went on to purchase Caring Coral and absolutely love that, too.
