Lip gloss is kind of tricky. Sometimes what you see is what you get. Sometimes, that's not the case. But I tried a gloss by Julie Hewett, called Bardot. When I looked at it, I was concerned because it was kind of odd-looking. It was bronze-y. But it's lovely on the lips. Very natural and complimentary. So the morale of the story is ... TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.
