Carla’s not the only one loving a product from retro-cute line theBalm. I’ve been using BalmShelter Tinted Gloss SPF 17 for a few weeks and it’s quickly become my go-to gloss. When no other color seems right with my outfit or the rest of my makeup, BalmShelter in Girl Scout (a shimmery, sheer light caramel color) ties it all together.
The gloss applies very lightly; you can swipe just a hint of it or goop it on. Either way, you end up with the same delicate, natural look. Because the formula is so sheer, it layers over lipstick like a dream. I’m not a huge fan of the taste – it’s distinctly green apple Jolly Rancher – but that’s not enough to detract from my overall enjoyment of this gloss. And the fact that it coats my lips in color and SPF is tops in my book.
