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 thought this was a little too sticky and didn't last very long. Also, the shade I got didn't look great on my skin.

Immature
Sampled

This gloss seems like something a teenager would wear. The color, the ability of the gloss to blend into my lips and the amount of time it actually stayed on were below expectations.

Icky texture
Sampled

This applied thicker than I would expect from a lip gloss type product and I wasn't crazy about the texture on my lips. I had to wipe it off right away.

Wrong color
Sampled

This gloss feels sticky and was not a flattering color for my pale skin tone. I was sent a pale pink color that made me look washed out and ill.

Ginseng?!?! Weird.
Sampled

This lip gloss is a good pink color but it stays too glossy and will come off on anything and everything. I got the BAM! which was infused with ginseng which I don't understand. It helped my lips look and feel nice but didn't last particularly long. You would have to keep reapplying it.

Where is the BAM?
Sampled

No BAM what so ever. I didn't like the consistency, color or smell. Maybe if I had received a darker color but this is definitely not a gloss that I would spend my money on.

Eh.
Sampled

I usually love every sample I've gotten from theBalm, but this was not one of them. The color and consistency of this was horrendous. Not my thing, at all.

Sticky
Sampled

I always love getting lip gloss in my Birchbox, but this product was VERY sticky and had a weird fragrance. Plus, the color was so pink that it reminded me of a color that a little girl would use playing dress-up.

Goppy Stickly lip procucts
Sampled

I hate goppy sticky lip products. Especially when it's in my hair. I don't like the texture or feel. They all seem toddy my lips rather than moisturize. Wish birchbox would quit sending these products to me. Would give zero stars but view won't let me.
