Nuxe is responsible for one of the best lip balms on the market, Reve de Miel. It made me curious about their colored lip balms, Baume Prodigieux Lèvres, that look like a gloss but promise benefits of a lip treatment, including hydration, plumping, and comfort. I chose this Nuxe balm in Charismatic Red, a bright poppy color.
Other than a random problem with the packaging of my first tube (i have since bought a second one for my makeup bag) that causes the gloss to overflow a little, the gloss itself feels wonderful and very moisturizing. It delivers on everything Nuxe promises, including pumping the lips full of nourishment so they appear smoother and healthier. The vibrant color of Charismatic Red is an added bonus. I didn't expect the pigment to be so strong and vivid, but it is and I'm not complaining. While teh gloss is sheer, it has enough punch to add color and brighten the look. The sweet scent and taste are very faint and disappear before I even notice their presence, so that's a nice plus.
Bottom Line: highly recommended.
