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.

Too sticky
Sampled

I'm not the biggest fan of glosses in the first place, so take this as you will...
I thought it was super sticky. I felt like my lips had almost been glued shut. There wasn't a very pigmented color either.

I hated this gloss. My hair got stuck in it it was so sticky. The color was off and it felt really weird on my lips.

Not a Fan
Sampled

I have never been a fan of lip gloss. I HATE the sticky feeling lip glosses leave on my lips and this one was no different. It claims to be nonsticky, but that was not the case for me. The color was nice, but nothing to rave about.

Not my fav

the color isn't for me, plus it's kind of sticky which is not to my liking. I guess just not for me.

I did not like this sample it was not the right color for me and it goes on a little too goopy for me.

Oh god.

Oh god. How do I take it off! Is all I could think. Granted the color itself was an awful bright pink that I don't think anyone could pull off. But it was too thick to be a smooth gloss and too thick to spread properly like a lipstick

I really thought the packaging was fun and expected to love this gloss. I don't think it's my color. Didn't make my lips fuller.

Sorry but no. Just no. This color was awful...at least on my skin tone...and i was not a fan of the stickiness. My fiance' laughed when I put this color on. It looks like a frosted barbie pink and clashed with my skin tone so badly. I will not be purchasing this.

Awful

The color, taste and consistency of this gloss was terrible. It smells gross and tastes worse. I threw it out after one use.

Lip Gloss

This goes on and looks more like frosting then lip gloss. I did not like it at all. I thought I would like it better because I've liked and purchased other products from this brand.
