Rare Beauty Nearly Apricot is a moderately warm-toned, light coral with a jelly finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Rare Beauty Nearly Apricot Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, light-medium coral with moderate, warm undertones and a jelly-like finish--too translucent and high-shine to be cream but shimmer-free. The texture was smooth, plush, and non-sticky, so it spread evenly over my lips without emphasizing my lip lines or catching on lip texture and felt comfortable to wear.
It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage, as marketed, and lasted for two hours--so shorter-wearing--but was hydrating over time.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
Like a lip mask in a gloss, this ultra-cushiony, comfortable formula hugs lips with nourishing hydration while visibly plumping them with buildable color and shine. Made with a botanical blend of lotus, gardenia, and white waterlily, it also helps soothe, calm, and nourish lips.
