theBalm is a brand that I have seen around for quite a while, but had never actually tried until the last few months. Man, was I ever missing out! I have a few different products from them now, and I love them all. In fact, I’ve been reaching for some of their products quite a lot lately. They are great quality and sell at a great price point, so you really can’t go wrong.
Today, I’ve got lip swatches of four shades of the theBalm Read My Lips lip gloss. This gloss goes on pretty thin, but you can build up the color with a second layer of gloss. The four shades I have are probably some of the most sheer in the collection of 11 different shades- there are some gorgeous bold colors in the collection as well. This is probably what I would consider a “perfect” lip gloss formula- they’re not thick on the lips, not sticky, wear well for a few hours, and they give the perfect amount of shine and a hint of color for low-maintenance everyday wear.
The four shades I have are Zaap!, Bam!, Pop! and Grrr! I think Bam! and Grrr! tie as my favorites from these four, as they are both nicely pigmented MLBB shades, with Grrr! being a little darker and perfect for fall. With that being said, I do really love them all because they’re just so easy and comfortable to wear. They retail for around $15 each at Nordstrom or on Amazon. I’m definitely planning on purchasing a couple of the more bold colors soon!
Which of these four lip glosses is your favorite?
