This lip balm is becoming one of my favorite staples in my makeup bag. It comes in a beautiful rose gold packaging, the shade is very light and natural I think its perfect for all skintones and it does not dry my lips although I do recommend a lip balm underneath if you’re lips are cracked. The downside to the product is how little is in there but I love the product and thought I’d put it out there. I hadn’t bought anything from NARS in a year or two but this one was something I was happy I bought! I like it so much I just recommended it to a good friend I was like “you need this in your life.” Then again I realized she just told me she was a “matte lip” kinda gal.
I think shade wise it is lighter but I do about 2 swipes/layers.
