Compare to Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments?
They're approximately the same size and the same price, so I'm wondering which you prefer. I've tried the Fresh Sugar and not the HydraTint, but I found that the Fresh Sugar didn't last long (especially the tint), therefore I went through it really, really quickly. Which has better color, is more long-wearing, more hydrating, etc.? Thanks!!

on HydraTint SPF 15
These are much more long lasting and more evident than the Fresh Sugar tints.

I much prefer Sugar. More hydrating, sheer and natural looking. Sugar gives you color in the darker shades, but it doesn't look like lipstick. L. Mercier is too thick and bright for my taste; maybe it was the color I had. Also, I think Sugar has more natural ingredients.

I have not tried Fresh Sugar but this lasts longer than the average lip balm.

Definitely buy a different product. The HydraTint was not moisturizing and it smelled really plain and gross.

Have not tried the Fresh Sugar but was very disappointed with the Hydra Tint, did not feel like it was moisturizing in the way a lip balm would be and the color was very strange. Honestly, I would recommend one of their sheer lipsticks and the clear (looks slightly pink in tube but is clear on lips) lip balm either over or under it.

I tried both and Hydra tint from Laura Mecier lasts much longer, looks better on and hydrates lips very well.

I actually love them both, but yes, the laura mercier might last a little longer. I found them to be very similar in feel and looks.

also love the sugar lip treatment! the consistency is very smooth (almost 'melts' into your lips) the hydra tint is more lipstick-ish in its consistency; still sheer but not as soft so you don't go through it nearly as quickly...
I haven't tried the Fresh. I just bought this, so I haven't used much yet. You do need to reapply after eating or drinking.
I love both. The fresh balm is more hydrating feeling, and the hydratint is more dry. The hydratint has about 10x the pigmentation that the fresh balm and the tint lasts a lot longer (I think it has to do with the slightly more dry formula).
