I bought a tube of this stuff about ten years ago, and I loved the color, but hated how gloppy and unevenly it went on. Well, I decided to buy a new one recently, and surprise, it was totally reformulated. The tube looked different (it looks as pictured above), the ingredient list is different, and it is so much better! It goes on smoothly, the color (Blaze) is slightly sheerer, but still a buildable sheer natural looking reddish brown. It's really flattering with my green eyes. You can put a thin coat on and it looks like a subtle stain, or you can put several coats on and it looks like lipstick. This stuff stays on your lips a really long time, too. Love this stuff!

I have really dry lips, so I love tinted lip balm. I like the smell/flavor of this one, as well as the SPF option and the fact that it is all natural is a huge plus. My only problem with this product is the cakey/clumpy application. The darker shades are worse than the lighter ones, but it's still difficult to get even color without a mirror and finger touch ups. Try Burt's Bees, or Bonne Bell tinted chapstick as an alternative.

Though I prefer the burt's bee shimmer fig because of it's shine, this is nice for those who don't like shine. I just add a gloss over it.

Comments about Alba Botanica Mineral TerraTints SPF 15 Lip Balm, Blaze, .15 oz:

For a lip balm, this is GREAT! The color blaze is a really nice soft plum color. Many balms don't even show up on my lips (white/green eyes/olive skin), but Blaze is great! It is a BALM, so not the same long lasting effective like a lipstick. Has a nice minty/tingly effect that is great on chapped lips. Would definitely buy again.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Mineral TerraTints SPF 15 Lip Balm, Blaze, .15 oz:

      I actually preferred the old formual without SPF, it had a richer color, denser trexture and was less shiny. But this is still a pretty, color rich, lip balm and the SPF is a good addition, I just wish it was waxier and more opaque, I used to use it as a cheek stain and a lip balm, not it is a bit too thin for that, but might work for lighter skin.

          Comments about Alba Botanica Mineral TerraTints SPF 15 Lip Balm, Blaze, .15 oz:

          I have been buying and using Terra Tints for years. I have medium olive skin, brown-green eyes and dark hair, and the colors that really flatter my features are Blaze and Sienna. Blaze is a fiery red-pink and Sienna is a pearly copper/bronze color. The formula is REALLY rich -- sort of a lipstick-balm hybrid. I love that it's all-natural, and the texture, while quite heavy given that it's labeled as a balm, is moisturizing and comfortable to wear. The gorgeous pigments -- slightly shimmery/pearly and rather saturated -- last for hours yet the product manages to keep my lips soft throughout the day, in contrast to what lipstick normally does. For those folks who say this balm has a chalky, chunky, or gritty texture, I offer a possible solution that has worked for me: I twist it up just a bit and lightly tap it onto my lips, top and bottom, and then gently press them together. Alternately, finger application also allows more control and results in a nice, sheer, natural/healthy-looking wash of color with moisture. It also seems to help, on days when my lips are overly dry or peeling, to alternate this with a lighter, more moisturizing true lip balm, such as Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm.

          This can take the place of lipstick easily, as it's so color-charged. The SPF 8 is a big plus and it's moisturizing is great... Love it!!!

          Comments about Alba Botanica Mineral TerraTints SPF 15 Lip Balm, Blaze, .15 oz:

          Love this lip balm! More of a lip gloss feel with nice color. The blaze is a reddish-plum that can be used under or over any lipstick, to add shine (and enhance -or- change the color). I'll use this without lipstick for a more natural look too. The spf is low, but at least it's something. It feels tingley cool & moisturizing. I also love the bloom (light pink). Will be getting the Sienna next.

          It is a nice lip balm, with a little shine to it, but not thick and glossy (thank goodness!).
          I planned on using this product instead of lipstick for a quick lip tint through the day. I like it, but I chose the wrong color. I should have bought the rose color, rather than the firey red. The color is slightly electric bright, although, at the same time it's transparent. It's a nice color, just not with my coloring!
