The formula delivers incredible payoff and rich, high-impact colour. The shades layer on well with each other. I like how the apply well with fingers or with a brush, they blend easily to give the desired effect. The shades work pretty well to create a multitude of looks from everyday natural wear to bold and daring.

Afterglow Lip Balm is a moisturizing lip balm with a blend of antioxidants to condition and protects lips. It is not new for me but the shades are. I have loved this formula for a long time now – very moisturizing and keep the lips soft and supple. There are six new shades launched in this cult-favourite lip product.
