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.

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.

I got this lip balm in Tide and Swell. I like both colors, they are very light which is what I like. I have not noticed any plumping but I didn't expect that because I don't think any lip product can really do that. Love the magnetic cap!
Effortless and Refreshing
Lipsfordays from Idaho
This is a great balm for days you don't want an over defined lip, but want a hint of tint. It smells so good and leaves my lips hydrated!
Lori from Myerstown,PA
I have issues with dry, chapped lips. This works great.
Definitely worth the price
Michelle from Fayetteville, NC
I bought this product on Saturday, wore it Sunday! I received multiple compliments on the shade, Lagoon (purchased Lagoon and Breeze). It felt amazing on my lips. I will definitely purchase this product again, when I run out! This is now my go to lip color!

I tried the bright coral shade and let me tell you, its BEAUTIFUL. It's a balm with plenty of color. It makes my lips soft and I have a color that makes my lips look well hydrated and a pretty color. I'm going to grab a few other shades. I'm in love especially since we have to use these masks.
I did not.like this color at all
Luv2bshopping from Phoenix
I bought the color surge and it didn't look so nice on me. I exchanged it for the blackberry color and love it. It's not dark like it looks. It's very sheer.
Nice but expensive
Emily from Seattle
I received a free sample of this a few weeks ago. It is super moisturizing and long lasting, and not sticky at all. The tint is very sheer. Nice, magnetic packaging. HOWEVER, I think it would be very easy to get the same thing at a much better price from any drugstore brand. It is difficult for me to justify spending 3x as much on a lip balm that I'll probably lose anyway.
very light and moisturizing.
Morgan from California
This product works very well as a moisturizing lip balm and has a very nice feel and scent when applied. the container has a magnetic close so it will not come apart as easy. However the tint isn't as dark as the online pictures portray so if you have medium tan or darker skin it won't show. I would not purchase again at full price because it is just a high end tinted chapstick.
Compared to Fenty Slip Shine
Busymama from Anchorage
I'm obsessed with orange lip colors right now and couldn't wait to get my hands on the Surge color. It's a traditional balm that tastes exactly like Hubba Bubba Strawberry Watermelon from back in my childhood. It's potent at first but diminishes quickly. The balm has buildable color but never really gets super opaque. I will say it fades quickly like chapstick so requires frequent reapplication. I'm in love with the Fenty Slip Shine in Tang Thang. That product is buildable to full opaque, has a more subtle orange sherbert scent, and feels like a creamy lipstick but a shiny finish (much less balm like). You get less product with Fenty but it does last longer than this Becca balm. All in all I'm happy with Becca as a balm and the Surge color. I would repurchase with a sale or coupon. It's fantastic for no makeup makeup days with a bolder bright lip.
JoJo from Los Angeles
I dunno why people are saying it doesn't tingle, but I got it in the shade Tide and it does have a mild tingling cinnamon burning sensation not right away but then it kicks in and lasts for a minute or so. I don't like that, but it least it doesn't last long like the Buxom ones. Doesn't really plump. The color is ok; a barely there slick shiny sheer. This is a decent balm, but it will melt if you have it in your purse in the summer time.
Cupcake from Baton Rouge, LA
This has the smartest packaging for a lip stick/gloss. It's magnetic so it stays shut in your purse or pocket so you don't end up with lipstick everywhere in your makeup bag. The colors are light and silky and it has a pleasant scent. All around great product and I plan to buy more colors.
LSH from Washington, DC
I love that this gives a sheer color while making my lips super moisturized. I personally hate lipstick and I hate the way gloss feels. This is perfect for me. I will buy this forever now!! I also love that the container has a magnetic close. I highly recommend this to everyone!
I really love this
Amy from US
I started wearing tinted lip balms instead of lipgloss or lipstick a few years ago. I have about 3 different Dior ones. I really didn't like spending so much on those, but hadn't found any others that I liked nearly as much.
Until I used this! It's just so much more moisturizing. I use a clear lip balm under the Dior one because it isn't moisturizing enough by itself. When I use this, I don't need to use anything under it because this provides more than enough moisture to my perpetually chapped lips.
I have it in Tide, which is described as nude pink. It's really a warm peachy pink. The swatches in the picture also make it look a lot more pigmented than it is. I'm glad that it's more sheer than I thought it would be. You could probably layer it up to make it less sheer, but I think that it'd take many, many layers.
I'm definitely going to buy 2 or 3 of the other shades soon. Not only are the colors really pretty, it's a lot more moisturizing than the balms/sleeping masks made to use at night.
Strong Unpleasant Taste
Sam from Florida
This balm does feel moisturizing and leaves a nice sheen. That being said, it bleeds off the lips and wears away in no time. It's so soft in texture that it's just plain messy. I have many other balms that don't do this. It also has a very strong fruity or floral taste which is a dealbreaker for me. I can't stand when a lip product has an unpleasant taste that doesn't dissipate. Will wear it around the house but would not repurchase. I did give it an extra star for nice color selection and a slight plumping effect.
Great tinted balm
CaraM80 from NYC
I received the shade Tide as a Platinum Perk about a week ago and I've been using it daily. The balm is hydrating and melts into the lips giving a plumped look without any minty tingling. I hate plumping/stinging lip products and this doesn't have that feel at all. The color Tide is a barely there light, neutral pink that will look good on a variety of skintones. I'm very happy with this balm and may buy another shade. Highly recommend!
Alex from Baton Rouge
I received the color Surge for free from Ulta during their sale, and I love it! It's sheer, but a really pretty coral. Great for summer!
I love it!
Sara R from Oklahoma
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. I absolutely loved this product! One of the only lip colors I've tried that was actually SUPER moisturizing. I liked the colors I got, a neutral pink and a coral, but I would love to try more colors!
I love this!
Chelleb2214 from Detroit, MI
Can I just start with saying this is an amazing product?! The balm is light and goes on smooth. It smells nice and looks fantastic. It is shiny and draws light making your lips look plump and gorgeous. It lasts a while without reapplying. Swell, is a nice, light pink color and looks amazing. It does tingle as it plumps your lips but it's not bad. I definitely recommend this!
Love this, failed lip fillers.
Kirstin from Sioux Falls
I love this on its own. I used the color tide, I even like to use it under or over my every day lip color to make my lips bigger. I got lots of compliments and someone even thought I had fillers.
xirapha from Kentucky
I picked Swell (a rosy light pink) as my free gift with purchase. The moisture is nice and it does not have a sticky texture. It was a sheer pink finish. I don't feel it did much to "plump" my lips but the sheen looked nice. I tasted and smelled watermelon, which I don't care for, so this was a miss for me. If you like watermelon, I would recommend it though.
Good not great
Wendy from Nyc
I wouldn't spend my own money on this by any means. Got this as a diamond exclusive free offer. The color is lovely I have to say. I received the shade Tide. However, upon application and swatching, when swiping the color on, the product from the bullet crumbles off in small chunks and onto wherever your swiped it. It's quite annoying which is why I give 2 stars. After cleaning up all that mess every time you want to use this thing, The only redeeming quality is the subtle color payoff on your lips.
LOOOOOVE this product!
KetoCapla from Maricopa AZ
This product is BEAUTIFULLY packaged with a magnetic closure! Was incredibly comfortable to wear and didn't leave my lips feeling sticky! Super smooth texture! The ingredients made my lips feel super smooth and sexy!
Great lightweight balm
SamIAm from Las Vegas, NV
I was really looking forward to trying this after all the recommendations I got. The color and feel were great, however, these was nothing "plumping" about it.
Love all the Colors!!
Cnfn26 from Evansville, In
I was very excited to try this product because I really like this brand. I am also a lipgloss/lipstick/chapstick lover. I haven't tried that many lip plumping lip balms, so I was so excited when I received two lip balms to try. I tried this with a new foundation and found that throughout the day it bled into my makeup. I tried it with another foundation and it did the same thing. I tried it with foundation but putting powder all around my mouth to prevent it from bleeding into my make up. That worked. It did not bleed if I just wore powder. I do like to put quite a bit on so maybe I put too many layers. I do not like sticky lip balms or glosses. This lip balm was so smooth and glided on well. I am not sure about it plumping my lips. Maybe if I continually used it for several days in a row I would feel a difference. I love all of the colors that you can buy from. I feel like you can wear them all year long. It felt hydrating and went on smoothly, even with just one layer. I did have to reapply a few times but I feel this may have been since I put on several layers. It looks shiny and once it does rub off it leaves a little bit of tented color. I have tried other chapsticks that have been tented and this one is the best yet. I have only given it four stars due to it bleeding into my makeup. I am not sure if it was the makeup I wear or if it is the formulas touching. Overall, I would Definitely recommend it!!!
Andrea from Brooklyn, NY
I am a fan of Becca and was not let down by these! First the component - it's a sleek white tune that has a satisfying metallic snap when you slide the cap back on, very innovative, making for a clean purse with no cap falling off! The colors.. wish I had gotten them all! I received 2, and both are gorgeous. You can get a hint or layer it up for more color payoff. The formula is the real kicker, it just feels super hydrating without greasiness, and not too slippery either. Love it! I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
