Snap! Pretty Smart Lipgloss - The Balm $15.00 *
Hey everyone!!! Normally I am the furthest thing from a lipgloss fan, it's sticky, gloopy, it gathers into this weird line on my lips because I talk too much, and there are a select very few brands (i.e. NARS) that make formulas I can tolerate and wear because they look so beautiful. The Balm has now become one of those brands.
I was sent the Pretty Smart gloss (or the Read My Lips gloss if you aren't in Europe) in the shade Snap! - it's a beautiful warm brown nude which I have been getting very into lately as I have been figuring out that these brownier nudes suit my skin tone much better than all the cult favorites.
As you can see in the swatch above, the lipstick is pretty opaque and has a nice consistency to it (you can't probably tell that part from the picture unless you're some sort of lip gloss specialist but I'm telling you that part.)
Here is the gloss on my lips, keep in mind I do have pretty pigmented lips so the fact that a nude gloss shows up at all is VERY surprising in a wonderful way.
What The Balm says about these glosses-
"These lip glosses feature a wide range of shades that make a statement without saying a word. "Smart-mouthed" takes on a new meaning with this unique formula fortified with Ginseng, a powerful antioxidant known for its mentally stimulating properties."
