Rare Beauty Compliment With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm ($16.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium plum with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had medium to semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which made it a lot more pigmented than described, though it was on the buildable side--it just started at a higher coverage level from the get-go.
The texture was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, so it glided readily across my lips but didn't feel like it was going to slide right off. The color applied evenly and didn't emphasize my lip lines, which was nice for a more emollient formula. It wore well for three and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
