I have been so in to the Glossier UK launch on the whole but this product is just a big swing and a miss for me. I understand it in theory, a sheer ‘blotted’ lip colour that gives that casual ‘just bitten’ look. I like the idea but in practice it’s just not quite right.
On initial application it kind of reminds me of MAC Plumful which back in the day I was so all about but it has less coverage and is considerably more drying. In another colour it might work but I think it’s the formula that just doesn’t do it for me, it needs a serious kick of hydration but applying it over the top of a balm would make it near impossible to get an even colour.
It’s definitely the disappointment of the bunch, brand-wise and at £14 a pop it’s not cheap either. I would like to find something similar with a little more moisture for the Winter months cause I do like that berry stain effect but this isn’t something I’d recommend unless your lips are in tip top condition!
