Rare Beauty Nearly Mauve Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip BalmRare Beauty Nearly Mauve Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, rosy plum with subtle, warm undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had moderate shine with translucency as it had sheerer coverage, as marketed, that allowed the natural lip color to come through.
The texture was lightweight, smooth, and like a balmy gel, so plush and cushiony without being tacky. It lasted well for two and a half hours and felt moisturizing while worn.
