theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss Swatches and Review

theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss

theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss is a brand new product out for summer 2014 and I am really excited about them!

The main reason I am excited about these is because I was really wanting theBalm to put out a more pigmented gloss than they previously had. These definitely are more pigmented. They are fortified with ginseng which is an anti-oxidant, and they give you a really nice shine without any sticky mess.

To my sniffer they smell like red apples, which isn’t a bad thing. There really is no taste though. They have a nice easy-to-use slanted tip foam applicator.

This brow powder comes in three neutral shades which include Blonde, Light Brown and Dark Brown. Of course we can’t forget the adorable packaging she comes in either which is decorated with a woman about to kick some serious unruly brow butt! Hmm, that sounded weird. Anyway, inside the heavy-duty cardboard compact you will find the powder and a small mirror.
