The Balm Read My Lips | Review & Swatches

Read My Lips 1

Who doesn’t love a good gloss? I received these in a recent haul from The Balm and absolutely fell in love.  I have to admit that I haven’t worn lip gloss much in the past six years since I’ve been with my husband because he’s not really a fan.  I mean who doesn’t love a sticky, glittery, colorful kiss that they have to immediately wipe off?

Read My Lips has me back on the gloss train though.  They’re beautiful and super hydrating, but not too sticky.  And just look at those colors…they’re practically art! The range of shades is sure to fit any look, mood, or outfit, and the comic-inspired names are just an added bonus.

I love each and every one, but GRRR! has been a personal fave of mine.  There have been few days in the past the month that I’ve gone without this gorgeous plummy nude.

Each of these glosses swatch beautifully, but as you can see, there is quite a range in the opacity of the formula.  The lighter colors tend to be more sheer while the brighter and darker colors are nearly a liquid lipstick.

I’m going to do a review and swatches of all of the products I received in an upcoming video, and I thought it would be fun to do lip swatches of these beauties!  What do you think? Let me know in the comments below! xo
