Rare Beauty Nearly Neutral is a moderately warm-toned, medium brown with a jelly finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Rare Beauty Nearly Neutral Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium caramel brown with moderate, warmer undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had moderate shine and sheer to semi-sheer color coverage, as marketed, so the translucency coupled with the lack of shimmer made it appear more jelly-like than cream-like in its finish.
The gloss had a smooth, non-sticky consistency that was lightweight but plush, which helped it soften lip lines. It wore well for two and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.

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.
