I recently purchase this lip tint because I needed something that provided a bit of color, SPF, and has lip conditioning properties. The sheer tint lip protectant smooths, soften and protect lips. The tinted balm is packed with vitamin E and antioxidants to protect and nourish skin. The plum tint is a sheer purple color. If you are looking for a balm with a sheer color and SPF, then you should definitely look into getting this or at least trying it.
