Gloss Balms Galore!

Hey Everyone! This post is all about the different types of drugstore lip products that fall under the “gloss balm” category. Gloss Balms and Lip Butters are basically just a lip balm or chapstick with a hint of color and often a glossy sheen. I really like gloss balms because they are super hydrating and sheer. The ones I will be reviewing in this post are the Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balms, the Loreal Colour Riche Caress and Colour Riche Balms, the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters, and the Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suedes. Here are the descriptions, and pictures and swatches will be below.

*Since these products are all considered “sheer” (compared to a normal lipstick), I will use the words sheer, semi-sheer, and high color to describe them. Sheer means that there is little to no visible color, mostly transparent. Semi-Sheer means that there is noticeable or semi-noticable visible color. High Color means that there is very noticeable color.  

COVERGIRL LIP PERFECTION JUMBO GLOSS BALM : These are pencil style lip balms with a twistable bottom for addition product. They have buildable semi-sheer pigmentation and last for a few hours before reapplication is needed (as most gloss balms do). The lighter colors can slightly settle into lines and accentuate very chapped lips.  The color 225 Rose Twist is an exceptional everyday rosey nude. I would recommend this product.

225 Rose Twist – a pink rosey nude

205 Ballet Twist – a sandy light pink

220 Haute Pink Twist – a hot watermelon pink

LOREAL COLOUR RICHE CARESS : These are traditional twist-up lip colors in luxurious mirrored gold packaging. They are semi-sheer to buildable high color in pigmentation. I feel that they are not very hydrating and the light colors can be a bit chalky though they have a sheen. The color 170 Cotton Pink in particular is very chalky on my dry lips. Though some colors are great, it’s a huge hit and miss. Overall I would not recommend this product.

170 Cotton Pink – a milky baby pink

172 Blushing Sequin – a neutral neon hot pink

LOREAL COLOUR RICHE BALM : These are traditional twist-up lip colors in tinted translucent packaging. They are semi-sheer in pigmentation and are extremely hydrating. Unlike some of the gloss balm style products, these do not accentuate any dryness and actually give an airbrushed effect to the lips. The color quality and shade range is fantastic. I highly recommend this product.

818 Nourishing Nude – a nude toffee tan *favorite*

318 Heavenly Berry – a nude raspberry *favorite*

REVLON COLORBURST LIP BUTTER : These are traditional twist-up lip colors in tinted translucent packaging with a quilted detail. They are semi-sheer and can have a slightly chalky and sticky consistency. I would not recommend this product.

045 Cotton Candy – a slightly purple baby pink with gold shimmer

REVLON COLORSTAY ULTIMATE SUEDE : These are traditional twist-up lip colors and come in clear packaging. They are high-color and in true “color stay” fashion, they last all day. I like to apply a clear chapstick to my lips before applying these because, again like most colorstay products, they can be a bit drying. I would recommend this product.

010 Womanswear – a neutral candy pink
