theBalm® cosmetics Read My Lips® Lip Gloss Infused With Ginseng

Silence may be golden, but we can’t help spreading the word about these playful glosses. They combine vivid pigment and full-on shine to help lips look fuller, with a light, nonsticky consistency to boot. Infused with energizing ginseng, these antioxidant-rich glosses have plenty of color payoff: BAM! is a rosy pink, WOW! is a classic scarlet red, POP! is a fun peachy coral, POW! is a bold fuchsia, SNAP! is a mauve taupe, and BOOM! is a shimmering raisin.

Not for me
Sampled

I had high hopes for this but it was very tacky and I wasn't a fan of how it felt. The color was ok, but the stickiness really turned me off.

Not for me

This lip gloss felt and looked like the "dress up" makeup you used as a little girl. Looked very cakey and felt heavy.

Didn't love it

Meh I didn't love it. Color, texture, or wear. It felt grainy and didn't feel like it did anything for me

Not a fan
Sampled

Not a fan of the lip gloss or the color. It's way too matted and not flattering at all. I ended up putting another lip gloss over this and it looked fine but, definitly not something I'll use.

too sticky
Sampled

It's a cute little sample, but the gloss was sticky and did not cover well. The color was too light for me.

I got this as a sample in either fushia or bright red, soooo not my color. It had great staying power, 30 minutes later when I decided I couldn't take it any longer and had to take it off, it did come off... mostly. But there was still some stain left over to have just the right amount of color left over.

Goopy and thick
Sampled

I love the smell and the color, but I Don't find it light or nonstick and it doesn't really make my lips look fuller.. just sticky.

Not my favorite
Sampled

Honestly, this was not my favorite lip gloss product. It goes on sticky and stays sticky. I didn't like the color or texture. I'm always looking for a new lip product and color, but this isn't it!!

Not my color

I am Asian and the color of this does not work well for my olive skin tone. It is also too gooey for my liking.

Not that great
Sampled

I didn't like the color or the texture of this gloss. It went on easy enough but caked pretty quickly. I won't be purchasing it and I'm leery about trying other products by the same company.
