I don't like to wear really noticeable makeup. And I have olive skin so when looking for lip glosses I have tended to try the beiges and stay away from the pinks. So I was a little nervous when I decided to try the barely nude which is really pink in tone.
Well, I love it. The color is fabulous, even with my olive skin. I like that it is not as thick as other glosses I have tried (the ones you can't get off of your teeth and that your hair keeps sticking to your lips!) but I do wish it had a little more staying power.
That said, this has become my go-to gloss for both days where I prefer to look like I am not wearing any makeup, but also for evenings.
smooth, light pink color
this lip gloss is amazing. I got a very tiny sample (which is the worst) but that tiny sample smelled so good, perfect color and wasn't sticky at all, which is a must for lip gloss. I ended up buying the full size because I never tried a better lip gloss. Although expensive, it's worth it. Gwyneth Paltrow was right ;)
So thankful to have found a lipgloss that stay on for a decent amount of time that was not sticky and gross. The Barely Blush color is wonderful over a neutral lipstick. I would love to try other colors but for the price, I don't want to risk not liking them.
It applies very well and even. And stays on all day long! Thank you for such a great product! Love all the different color options!
great lip gloss
This lip gloss is not sticky and gives a great color. It is very natural looking. It has all the criteria that I look for in a lip gloss.
good neutral color
I am forever a chapstick girl, but when I want a little more shine this is the gloss I reach for. It is a very neutral color and has a nice shine without being too sticky.
Tastes like a little cupcake fairy sprinkles delightful little pops of sweet, pretty goodness on my face ALL DAY LONG! Love this! Makes me feel like a true princess!
perfect for daily use
I like this lip shine because its light, non sticky, tastes yummy (and not artificial) and doesn't look too dark at all. hence the 'naked' in the title. :)
Feels like luxury
I love these glosses. I received a sample size in a Birchbox a while ago in "Barely Coral" and it was a lovely sheer nude-coral, and I fell in love with the formula. I loved the formula SO much that I turned in points to purchase the full size gloss in "Barely Rose".
In terms of color, I think I preferred the coral shade. Barely Rose is nice, but it's so sheer that it might as well have no color at all. Although this is nice because I can wear it with literally anything, I wanted something with a bit of pigment to wear on its own as well, and this just doesn't cut it.
The formula is amazing for me. I cannot stand sticky products and glosses on my lips, and this feels like a luxurious lip balm. It's slightly slick, and because it lacks stickiness, it's not going to last a super long time, but it looks good and feels so comfortable that I still recommend this product. The price is high, but it's a very nice gloss.
This color is lovely and gives you fuller lips. It comes in lots of colors and creates the look of fuller lips.
