TheBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss

TheBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss is not a story about gloss, but about a gloss lipstick with its inherent qualities. But let’s talk about everything in order….

Description of theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss

theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss is a whole line of lip glosses consisting of 11 colors. Among them you can find both rich and bright shades, as well as calm neutral colors.

The composition contains ginseng, which saturates cells with minerals and trace elements. And the aloe extract creates a comfortable feeling due to its moisturizing properties.

All these qualities make theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss a 2-in-1 product – lip balm and gloss.

Lip Gloss Packaging

Thebalm cosmetics cannot be confused with any other brand thanks to their branding. Their stand is visible from afar, which speaks of the correct marketing course.


The gloss is in an ordinary plastic tube, which does not allow the consistency to “get out”. Yes, there are such glitters that flow out by themselves at the most inopportune moment, for example, when the glitter is in a cosmetic bag.

The shade of my shine is called “HUBBA HUBBA!”.


The applicator brush allows the gloss to be applied evenly.

The convenient shape of the applicator perfectly colors the contour of the lips, which can be done without a pencil.


When applying the gloss to the hand, I saw how rich and juicy the color turned out to be.

General impression

What prompted me to declare that this is lipstick-gloss? Pigment! The gloss is so highly pigmented that it completely covers the lip pigment and looks like a lipstick with a glossy finish.

Of the shortcomings, it is worth noting that when applied in two layers, the gloss flows a little beyond the lip contour. And also a perfume. Despite the pleasant and unobtrusive cherry aroma, it can annoy someone.

Of the features – resilience. After a snack, the shine gradually disappears, but the pigment remains.

Price: RUB 1.100

Output: it is difficult to talk about the uniqueness of such a product as lip gloss. I am not surprised either by the texture, or by the shades, or by the smell. All this can be found in every second brand. But theBalm I do not want to refer to the “next” gloss because of the qualities that simplify my lip makeup without creating difficulties.
