The Maxi Shine formula is supposed to give lips a “shimmering, radiant, and plumping finish” while hydrating with “varying degrees of coverage and pigment intensity.” Nahema Smack is one of two new shades (the other is Candy Hop, which I don’t have) for fall. It has semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage with a glossy shine. The texture is lightweight, comfortable to wear, mostly non-tacky, and lasted for four hours on me while keeping my lips feeling moisturized during and after wear. If you like your gloss more opaque, this might not be one for you, but if you prefer semi-sheer coverage, then it might be worth checking out.

OMG! When I read “Browny Clap” I laughed sooo hard because all I could think of was someone (myself!) going to the counter and making a slip by substituting “Crap” for Clap!

I love this gloss! I think it is way on the over-priced side. But, I can’t say it’s the first cosmetic item I have bought that was.
On a totally different topic, Christine when should I prepare my wallet for Holiday releases? I know you posted some Instagram teasers yesterday and I am sitting here thinking that Tom Ford still has come out with all f the Fall stuff yet. I need to start saving!

Super pretty gloss shade! Weird name though! Nahema on it’s own would’ve sufficed. I actually like the slight translucency with a shade like this sometimes as it gives it a juicy vibe.

Love the color and finish.This has enough coral in the Orange that I could wear it! Looks really good on you.

look so beautiful! I want real lip gloss like this! now a day lip glosses from many brands become more and more like liquid lip with their thick texture and super pigmented colors
