However, I have now found quite a bit of stock at various retailers so I thought I’d go for it! Here are all the shades along with swatches and lip swatches.

As I said, there are eight shades of glossy goodness to choose from and they are all really lovey.

I loved swatching all these shades on my lips because the formula is so nice. It is smooth, creamy and instantly lifts your makeup look. I love these glosses.

My Review of Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm
I am a big fan of these hybrid lip balm colour glosses and I know I am not alone because they are selling like hot cakes. Everyone I have spoken to about them has something good to say!
My favourite shade is Mist because it’s super flattering and so easy to wear. Next I love Slip which is a soft mauvey shade, and my other favourite neutral is Trace which is a slightly more beigey-brown tone.
Lucid is a very pretty, easy to wear coral which I can see being a great one for the summer months. But they are all wonderful, I am a real fan.
They all have a minty feeling on the lips, which part of the plumping element. It is pretty gentle and won’t offend unless you hate minty lip products.
I think these look so pretty on the lips but perhaps the only downside is that you have to re-apply fairly regularly to keep up that gorgeous high shine. This is great in terms of keeping your lips conditioned, but maybe not so good as you might go through the product really quickly.
If you are looking for a balmy lipstick with shine that’s a little less glossy (and also refillable), you should check out another fave of mine from Sisley – Sisley Phyto-Rouge Shine Review & Swatches.
