Image for Sangria - Read My Lips Lipstick in Smut review

I just bought this and I really like it so far. I was doing some shopping in the clearance area of The Vermont Country Store and they had a great deal of beauty items discounted. I saw some testers out with this delightful, newspaper inspired packaging.

The testers that were out were "Smut" (A sparkly plum), "Classified" (A gorgeous nude shade) and "Wanted" (A bright pinkish red). I really wanted Classified because I am so drawn to neutrals, but there were none in the box where all the lipsticks were. The only one available was the tester, so I tried it just because of curiosity. When it was on my lips it looked so boring. It didn't do anything for me. When I was looking for tubes of Classified, I found tons and tons of tubes in the shades, Smut and Wanted. I also found some others like Letters to the Editor. In the tube, it was a bronze shade. On theBalm's site, it is described as a bronze berry color. I didn't see much berry to it, and since there were no testers, I didn't try it. It didn't look terribly unique, so it was easy to pass it up. Another one I saw was Scoop which was a slightly peachy brightish pink. I didn't think it would look good on me. Also, there was no tester, so I threw it back in the box.

Even though Wanted looked wild in the tube, I tried it on a lark. It looks sheer and shimmery on my lips, a bit glossy. It be described as a plummy, mauve color. Completely wearable! It glides on well and lasts a good amount of time while drinking water. It doesn't last great through a meal, but that's fine. I don't mind reapplying this! It is scented. I smell vanilla with mint. It smells good. All the ingredients are shown in picture #2. I like that there's olive oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E in here.

All the shades are sold on theBalm's website, here. For more information on the store I bought it from check here.
