Most Helpful Positive Review Luscious, buttery lips
I need to start by saying that I adore this product. I received the Mist and Tide shades to test and absolutely love how soft and moisturized they make my lips feel. I'd really describe them as more of a luxurious chapstick than a lipstick because the color is just a subtle tint, but I would definitely rebuy these or try another color. I also love the packaging. It is beautiful and also feels high-quality. The lipstick tubes are magnetic, so they snap shut when you close them. For all of the reasons above, these would be so perfect to keep in your purse for everyday or on-the-go use.
My favorite of the two shades is Tide. My lips are naturally very pale and it offers a healthy, warm hue while still looking very neutral. The Mist shade looks a little intimidating in the tube, but it really applies like a cool-toned clear, if that makes sense. That is the one I find myself using most often now just because I'm wearing a mask in public, so no one would be able to appreciate the shade of Tide.
When I saw that these products were listed as "plumping" balms, I expected the stinging sensation and bright, puffy lips that some other products offer. This balm does have a slight tingle (not at all uncomfortable), but I have not noticed any real plumping effect.
My only complaint is that both balms had a tiny piece of the tip break off the first time I used them because of how soft they are.
Most Helpful Critical Review Like dont love
I received spray and surge complimentary from influencer for reviewing purposes. I loved the packaging. The tubes were iridescent and so fun. I was not a fan of the strong smell. It was off putting to me. Very fruity. The consistency of the balm was nice and smooth, but I did notice some tingling and slight burning after applying which I did not like. I have not used a plumping lip product prior to this so I know that may be why, but for those who havent either ( like me ) just know the sensation does occur and if you are sensitive this may not be for you. I did notice a bit fuller appearance to my lips but nothing crazy. Hydration was good, but did not last a long period of time like other genuine lip balms. *Side note: I am super picky about lip balms because my lips are constantly dry, so this is a brutally honest review. On the positive side the colors are AMAZING. Pigmentation is great even for a balm. Color payoff similar to a sheer creamy lipstick which I loved. Both colors gave a fun pop of color for summer. If I get used to the tingling sensation from the plumping ingredients I would recommend this product and probably try other colors, but since I am sensitive to the tingling I am not sure I would purchase on my own. But I do love the colors and consistency of the product. I do think its the best of both for a lip balm lipstick combo, just not a fan of the plumping factor even though most would love it! Great for a summer day where you dont want a heavy lipstick or need it to last all day and night.

Mila from Los Angeles , ca
Really impressed with this Product. It's like a light sheer tint and so perfect to give you that no makeup makeup look. Realt moisturizing.
Not great as a plumping product but a good tinted lip balm.
Makeuppedia from Florida
I was very excited to try this plumping lip balm. The packaging is super pretty and sleek. Love the white - holographic - silver font on it.
The lid has a magnetic closure and is so satisfying when it clicks shut.
The lip balm smells ok. Not minty, but it has a typical lip plumping product smell. Nothing bad though.
The product applies really nicely. Has a beautiful shine and gives a subtle color that if I were to wear it under a lipstick, the color of my lipstick won't be altered because of the lip balm. It can also be worn on its own like a tinted everyday balm.
It glides on the lips, doesn't have the tingly feeling that you get with a typical lip plumper. But, on the first two applications, this product caused textures on my upper lip and there was a slight discomfort on my upper lip. This has happened in the past when my lips are dry or irritated. I was very skeptical to use it again. But I gave it another shot and the next few times my lips were fine. I am not sure what happened the first couple of uses. Now for it's claim of plumping the lips, I did not see any. It definitely smoothed out the dry patches but not so much as plump it . I wouldn't call this a plumping lip balm, but it is a good tinted lip balm.
I wouldn't recommend this for plumping the lips, but if you want a sheer wash of color and shine, this is a good one.
I received this product complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion.
Amazing lip balm
M from USA
This lip balm is amazing. It feels very moisturizing without feeling greasy. I also really like their shade range.
Love this lipstick
Kenn from Bham AL
Loved that this smelled great was natural & came in a magnetic lid! Hydrated well butt gives you some color.
I will buy this product again.
Cadyb from Hinesville, GA
I use this to top off my lip and it adds the perfect sheen that I need.
Lovely Tinted Lip Balm
Dekilah from Detroit, MI
Gives a noticeable, but light tint with a bit of gloss. I noticed a very mind tingle within a minute or two of applying it. The watermelon scent is really only in the tube and when first applying so if you're scent sensitive, like me, it's nothing to worry about. This was moisturizing and lasts for at least a couple hours before fading. Definitely a great summer lip! (I was sent this product free to test & review)
Good for Beginners
Cristy from Oceanside, CA
I have two of these lip balms, Surge and Breeze. The packaging is amazing it has a magnetic cap, which helps keep it in place. The lipsticks both have a fruity smell, are very hydrating, and the color is buildable. I personally didn't see much plumping which is why it doesn't get the five stars. It's great for beginners, if you would like to experiment with a plumping lipstick this could be one to start of with. It's not as intimidating as other plumping products. Overall, if you are beggining with lip plumps this is a great one to start with.
Really enjoyed this
Brittany from Virginia
I received this product complimentary for testing purposes, all comments are my own. I typically don't use too many lip balms because they leave my lips feeling sticky. I really enjoyed this one though. I received this in both Lagoon and Spray and I loved these colors. They added just enough color to look good, but weren't overbearing. I definitely noticed that my lips felt moisturized after using this product. I didn't notice too much plumping, but that didn't bother me. I would purchase this product in the future.
It was ok
St10 from Pa
I received a free sample of the hydra-light plumping lip balm. There was a slight scent to it which I didn't mind at all. The colors were pretty sheer but did give my lips a nice gloss. I really didn't notice a huge difference in how plump my lips were before and after.
Easy Everyday Lippie
kwils from Atlanta, GA
This is called a "balm" but it is a beautiful sheer, buildable lipstick. These are my absolute favorite type of lipstick because they are so easy to apply and wear off more graciously than an opaque lipstick. There was a slight plumping effect after applying, but no burning or tingling. Overall, these could definitely become an everyday lip product for me. I love it!
Julie from Texas
This lip balm is hydrating and plumping. It made my lips feel amazing and look larger.

A Great Tinted Balm!
Batgirl from Chicago, IL
I received this product complimentary for testing purposes and was very impressed! This balm is really great addition to a glowy/ no-makeup look! It is very moisturizing and has a very nice shine to it without being sticky or tacky. The color is sheer, which is very typical of most balms. The only reason I took a star off is that I found myself having to reapply much more than some of my other balms from Fresh or Glow Recipe. Also, there is a bit of a strange smell when you first open the product that almost smells a little like tobacco, but that might just be the products I received. I haven't had the chance to smell any others, so I don't really have anything else to compare them to.
Stephanie P from Detroit, MI
I received this item complimentary for testing purposes. I ABSOLUTELY love the magnetic tube. I received Spray and Surge and absolutely LOVE the shades, I was very surprised at the pigment. I was so amazed at how moisturizing these are. I took a star off because I found out it's supposed to be plumping and 100% didn't have that effect.
This is good stuff
Shelbs from San Diego, Ca
I am so happy I get to try this. First of all it feels great on the lips. It doesn't have the same tingle that other lip plumpers have. But it smells really good. I got this in Mist and Swell. I was nervous about Swell because it looks really pink. But it's actually a more neutral pink and I love it. I don't notice much plumping, other than my lips look extra hydrated and healthy.
Great Lip Balms
BeautyJunkie15 from Bay Area, CA
Let me start out by saying that I love the packaging on these Becca lip balms. They are iridescent with a magnetic closure, which make the lip balms look extra fancy. I tried out Dew and Tide and am pleasantly pleased with both. Dew has a plum undertone while Tide has a pink undertone. I like that I can use them for different types of occasions, Tide more of a daily use, while Dew can be used a night. They are lip balms so they will fade away more quickly compared to lipsticks. However, I do like that they are buildable and the fact that they are moisturizing does eliminate me having to use a chapstick underneath (which I usually do with lipsticks). These lip balms have a light cherry scent to them (think Chapstick) but nothing overpowering. I did not see a plumping effect with either lip balms and neither had that plumping tingling sensation that I notice in other plumping products (which I am not a fan of). These have a great price point that won't break the bank. Definitely looking forward to trying other colors in the lip balm line.
MissAmber406 from Billings, MT
I enjoyed the very subtle color and the ultra hydration. Although it mentions plumping, I never got that effect. I would recommend this if you need a boost in hydration, not necessarily plumping
8/10, I am in love.
Shayy from Oklahoma City, OK
I've recieved this complimentary balm and the process was enjoyable. The packaging is white and can easily wipe off if any makeup is applied unto it. It is incredibly travel friendly. The lip blam has a strong magnetic closure, so it doesn't come apart if this is taken on the go. The packaging is sleek and playful, in nature.
The balm itself is pigmented. It has a strange "Petroleum Jelly" smell on first use. However, it goes away with time. The advertising makes the product seem more pigmented then it is. It is a very sheer wash of color (Keep in mind, my skin is medium tan in makeup descriptions. This might vary depending on skin color). This is such a wearable and reliable product, especially since I don't wear much makeup anymore because of recent events. I love this product and I would recommend it to anyone
Decent lip moisturizer
Lippie Linn from Saint Paul, MN
I started using this product everyday and it ha slept my lips moisturized. I can't get over the artificial scent of this product though but the packaging is beautiful. I didn't notice my lips being more plump since using this products.
Lincoln from Fargo, ND
I received Swell and Dew colors free for testing and they are great! This lip balm comes in really cute packaging, and the cap is magnetic so you don't have to worry about it popping off in your purse and making a mess. It goes on super smoothly and provides good hydration and tint to your lips. I don't think this is a super great plumping lip balm as I didn't really notice much of a difference, but it does cause a little tingling on my lips. Overall, I love the smooth texture of this lip balm, the hydration, the tint, and the packaging!
Moisturizing, colour is off
Pixie from Alabama
I received the BECCA Cosmetics Hydra-Light Plumping Lip Balm in Tide (a nude) and Dew (a berry.) I tried Tide first, and I have to say it's become a staple in my bag. The formula is light and glides on smoothly, but I didn't notice much if any plumping, and no tingling sensation. It is very glossy, but it lasts a decent amount of time. Tide is a good nude brown colour on me (pale with neutral/yellow undertones) and is a "your lips but better" type colour. Great for every day, and doesn't look put of place with minimal or no makeup. I was excited about Dew, but despite being a pretty berry colour in the packaging, it was an odd light pink on me and not very flattering at all. The formula was the same, so it felt comfortable to wear, it just wasn't a good colour on me. I especially love the packaging. The cap attached with a magnet! It means it definitely won't come undone and get all over your purse or pocket or wherever you're storing it, which I really appreciate. It's also satisfying to hear the click and know it's secure. Overall it's a good product, but I'd want to try out colours in person before investing. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

Nice light tint for natural looks, lightly plumping that makes the lips look smooth, hydrating
Received for free for review purposes
Vmtts from Norwell, Massachusetts
I've been using this lip balm for about four weeks now and I am in love! It does not give an unpleasant pumpling tingling sensation and it moisturizes your lips amazingly without making them sticky. It also protected my lips from being dry/cracked during the many times I went to the beach in the past weeks. The formula is great - just make sure you keep it out of the sun properly stored so it doesn't melt! The mist and surge shades are my favorites.
