    Great Spf lipstick, but need more colors :-)
    • I love this lipstick.. it's so hard to find great broad spectrum spf lip products (trust me, I've looked!), and PC nailed it as usual! But I have to chime in, and agree with some of the other comments, and say that I hope PC considers making this in other colors for more "cool toned/ fair skinned" ladies. Or make more SPF lip products like lip balm/ tinted lip balm or lip gloss, etc.. :-) But this is a great quality lipstick, and I love that it protects my lips from those damaging UV rays! :-) x

    smooth
    • Smooth and creamy. Color is nice and even. I find it wears a off fairly quickly for me but otherwise it is a very good lipstick and I will be repurchasing.

    Rosy Glow...nice nice!~
    • Very nice lipstick and does not feel heavy at all. I couldn't give it 5 stars because I honestly believe the price is too much for this. It's small. Get this product when it's on sale then I would say it is worth every penny. The color is lovely!

    Love it, but lighter pinks please!
    • This compares very favorably to my favorite Dior and Givenchy sheer lipsticks in terms of color, quality, and texture. (And for half the price.) BUT, as a quite fair-skinned person with cooler skin tone, the Sherbet is too peachy and the Rosy Glow is just a little too bright/dark. I see lots of my fellow Paula's Choice addicts agree with me -- a cool-toned, lighter pink would be very welcome! I'll start buying it in multiples if you offer it, I promise. :)

    Invisible is my Holy Grail Lip Balm
    • I have been using this lip balm in the Invisible for many years. I love it. That it has both UVA & UVB protection is awesome. I am never without it. I am fortunate to have really nice natural lip colour, & this enhances my lips perfectly. I do love to use lipstick also, but if I am not wearing lipstick then I am wearing this. I may be addicted to it. I always keep a tube of it handy. If I am without, I am panicky. Really I can't be without it & live in fear it may be discontinued.

    More non-shimmer shades, please!
    • I have insanely sensitive, chronically chapped lips, and this is the best lipstick that I have ever owned. Most lipsticks seem to somehow make my lips feel drier and more irritated, but this one actually soothes and moisturizes, and leaves my lips softer and more comfortable than before. My only complaint is that there is only one shade that does not contain mica (very irritating to my sensitive lips). Nude Illusion is lovely, but it does get a bit boring wearing the same color every day!

    Love See-Through Mauve
    • I bought a sample of this lipstick in See-Through Mauve when it was on-sale and loved it more than I thought I would which typically happens when I buy any of Paula's Choice products. Just a note to buyer's, however: the picture of the color swatch did not match the true color of the product. Also, I would not say is not see-through or sheer rather a lighter wash of color. Anyone wanting a perfect fall lip color will love this!

    Need more colors
    • As I've commented before, I would like to see a reddish-brown color. There was one, once upon a time. Bring that back or one like it, and I would be happier. I do love the wear of these lipsticks!

    Some colors work and some don't...
    • I am blonde with medium skin tones. Nude Illusion was too orange for me, and Rosy Glow much too bright. See-Through Mauve was perfect.

    What happened?
    • I have loved this lipstick line for the past few years; in particular the Rosy Glow and In the Nude colors. Recently, however, when I reordered the Rosy Glow, the product that shipped was a distinctly lighter color than my previous tube (I compared). Now, the product comes off as too "bubblegum" on my complexion and I don't like to wear it. I think that if colors or formulations are going to be changed, the name of the color should change, too. I hesitate to reorder the other color.

    Hi there! With any color product, there can be an acceptable level of variation from batch to batch. We suspect that's what you're noticing, and are happy to exchange this shade for another or provide a refund.

    Please update the colors!
    • These lipsticks are almost perfect. The texture is creamy & moisturizing. The shine is just right. They are easy to carry & apply. Most important, they have proper SPF. They aren't 5 stars due to the color selection. A few of them are okay, but most are too yellow or shimmery for my taste and complexion. I am fair with pink undertones. These would work better for women like me in non-shimmer shades like medium & deep pink, cherry red, berry, wine, & a softer mauve. Please consider new colors.

    Best Balm out there!
    • I love this stuff in the 'invisible' shade! I've tried all the balms out there and this is the best. Hydrates my lips without making them sticky or tingly, includes SPF (less common than you think) and is great under lipsticks or glosses. I have about 6 tubes of this stuff all over my house and office and use it day and night. I've tried several of the colors, but haven't found one that works. I'll stick with this as a balm/under layer for other color.

    Wonderful product, but no visible expiration date
    • I love this product! The lipstick is very pretty, it lasts a good amount of time, and has great ingredients! But what I love most about it is that it has reliable broad spectrum protection all in one lovely lipstick! :-) The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the product doesn't have the expiration date for spf printed anywhere on it. This is important to me to see on any product that I am using for sun protection purposes, so I hope PC will change this minor issue.

    LOVE this lipstick
    • I have it in every color and it works well depending on the season or the outfit. I LOVE that it has SPF and is so smooth and creamy. It even lasts longer than other lipsticks I've tried. Cannot say enough great things about this. I must note that I am a fair skin lady so these colors might not really work for everyone...

    Perfect Color-Nude Illusion
    • Granted the staying power of this product isn't as long as some lipsticks, but it doesn't dry out my lips and cause them to fever like so many of the mattes do. I detect very little shimmer in the Nude Illusion color that other reviewers find outdated. Nude Illusion works wonderfully with my golden skin tone. Most lip colors turn orange or pink on me, this color stays true. Hoping Paula's Choice will ALWAYS carry this color and product.

    More Colors And Less Shine Please
    • The only reason I didn't give this a 5 is I have very dry lips, and it would be nice if the product was a little more moisturizing. I want to echo the comments asking for more colors, especially pinks darker than Sherbet and lighter than Rosy Glow, a cool red, and a mauve lighter than See Through Mauve. And colors without shimmer, please. It makes the wrinkles in my 52 year old lips more obvious!

    Sheer's finally back in stock--and in a new tube!
    • Sheer is back in stock! As it's the only SPF lip balm I've found that doesn't have a bitter aftertaste, I'm delighted. The case is new, too--the Sheer arrived in a slim round tube that feels as if it's metal. However, the Nude Illusion I ordered a couple of weeks ago came in the old squared plastic tube. In my experience the plastic caps frequently crack long before the lipstick needs to be re-ordered so I'm hoping the colors will move to metal as they are restocked.

    BEST LIP BALM
    • For years I used PC Lip & Body Treatment Balm and it was hands-down the BEST out there for long-lasting moisture, especially overnight. Unfortunately I developed an allergy to beeswax and had to stop using it. I tried other vegan lip balms but they were either too greasy or too waxy and never provided the same level of needed moisture. However, the invisible Sheer Cream Lipstick has filled this need nicely, and with SPF as an added bonus. Until the balm is beeswax-free, this is my go-to.

    Perfect Nude
    • My search is over for the perfect lipstick shade for me, having found In the Nude. I may need to reapply a little more often, but that's okay because my lips don't rebel by chapping or becoming fevered as with many matte lipsticks. Thank you Paula's Choice for a wonderful product. Please keep this shade in your lineup FOREVER.

    Lighter PINKS please :)
    • I love the fact that this shade, SHERBET, is lighter than the others, and has frost in it. But I wish it had less yellow and more pink. Rosy Glow is too dark for me. The other shades, too yellow. And the Invisible one is still not available yet. Shucks! How about a lighter pink, Paula? Lots of us cool toned gals in Canada! How about two or three shades of lighter pinks? :)

    The applicator is trash.
    • The applicator is the cheapest, worst applicator I have ever handled in my entire lipstick career. It squeaks when I turn it like and old door. That being said, the lipstick is top notch and absolutely wonderful. It's creamy, lasts a good amount of time, and is layerable to deepen the color. It leaves my lips hydrated and the extra sun protection is a huge plus. I'm just afraid the tube is going to break before I can finish it.

    Gritty
    • Ordered the See-Through Mauve. The lipstick had a wonderful color, but the texture was gritty and hard to apply. Definitely not creamy. I had to use another lipstick afterwards to help fix the texture. I returned it. I just wanted to add that I LOVE Paula's Choice skincare products. They've made an incredible difference to my skin and I'll order their skincare products forever. Their customer support is helpful and friendly and guided me to a perfect skincare regimen. I still love you!

    Invisible shade is perfect daytime lip balm
    • I love this lipstick in the "invisible" colour. I don't wear make-up, but I need a lip balm with sunscreen in the daytime, and this one is really nice with its smooth texture and slightly lip-glossy appearance, not waxy like a lot of other lip balms. Sadly, the Invisible has been out of stock the past few times I've ordered... I hope it comes back soon. I will be very sad if this product is discontinued!

    Color not true
    • The color on the website and the color in the catalog do not match. Only the catalog shows the shimmer/frosting in the actual product. Unfortunately, I only found this out after I had purchased the lipstick and requested the catalog. The only good thing about this product is the sunscreen. I am very disappointed that Paula's Choice has chosen to focus so heavily on its skin care line to the detriment of the makeup line. .

    Hi Cynthia! Thank you for sharing your experience, and we're sorry the Sheer Cream Lipstick SPF 15 didn't work out for you! It's tricky with colors online, as (depending on the type) monitors can display them differently.  We would recommend that you contact our Customer Care Team for assistance with a refund or exchange!

Key Ingredients: avobenzone, octinoxate, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E

Product Ingredients:

Active Ingredients: Octinoxate 7.5%; Avobenzone 2%. (sunscreen agents) Other Ingredients: VP/Hexadecene Copolymer (binding/film-forming agent), Tricaprylin, Trioctyldodecyl Citrate (emollient slip agents), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax (emollient and bodifier), Polyisobutene (film-former), Polyglyceryl-2 Diisostearate, Ceresin (emollients), Polyethylene (binding agent), Tridecyl Stearate, Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Triisocetyl Citrate (thickeners), Hydrogenated Polydecene, Octyldodecanol, Paraffin (emollients), Retinyl Palmitate (vitamin A, antioxidant), Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol (vitamin E, antioxidants), Ascorbyl Palmitate (vitamin C, antioxidant), Disodium EDTA (stabilizer), Propylparaben, Butylparaben (preservatives)

May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides (mineral-derived pigments), Carmine (naturally-derived pigment), Manganese Violet, Red 6 Lake, Red 7 Lake, Red 21, Red 27 Lake, Red 28 Lake, Red 30, Red 33, Orange 5 Lake, Yellow 5 Lake, Yellow 6 Lake, Blue 1 Lake (coloring agents)

DIRECTIONS: Apply to lined lips at least 20 minutes before going outside. Reapply as often as needed to maintain color. If you will be outdoors for more than two hours, reapply lipstick at regular intervals to maintain sun protection.

Apply straight from the tube or use a lip brush for a more exact, precise application.

It is helpful to apply lipliner prior to lipstick to define and shape the mouth as well as to provide an "anchor" for the lip color to enhance its wear.

Why did Paula use avobenzone instead of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide in Sheer Cream Lipstick?

Paula chose avobenzone because both titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are rather opaque mineral sunscreens and it is difficult to create aesthetically pleasing sheer colors with them. In order to achieve an SPF 15 rating, the percentages of titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide required would have created a fuller coverage lipstick whose colors would be dulled by the matte finish these ingredients have.

Will it affect the sunscreen if I apply lip gloss over Sheer Cream Lipstick SPF 15?

Yes, it will, but how much the sunscreen will be affected is unknown. Applying lip gloss over Sheer Cream Lipstick will not cancel out the sunscreen, but it will dilute it, just as applying moisturizer over a facial sunscreen dilutes that. If you do not plan on spending much time outdoors and want a glossier finish while wearing this product, it is OK to apply a light layer of lip gloss. However, if you want sufficient sun protection for a long day (more than two hours) outdoors, it is best to skip the gloss and apply extra Sheer Cream Lipstick to obtain a shinier finish.

If I layer Sheer Cream Lipstick will the color become more intense?

Slightly. You won't be able to build opaque coverage due to the sheer pigments used to create each shade of Sheer Cream Lipstick. However, applying several layers will intensify the color more than just slicking on a couple of coats.
