Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm in Brody's Girl Review and Swatches

Did you know that all-natural nail polish brand Zoya makes lip gloss, too? Available in a whopping 30 different shades at the affordable price of $6, Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm was too tempting for me to resist.

Given my penchant for coral lip colors, I tried Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm in Brody's Girl, which is a bright reddish pink coral. While it's referred to as a "glossy lip balm," I consider this product a lip gloss. It does leave your lips feeling soft and smooth like a lip balm though!

The texture of Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm in Brody's Girl is non-sticky and has tons of vinyl-like shine. This lip gloss has a pretty strong candy scent that I can't quite place -- Laffy Taffy, perhaps?

Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm in Brody's Girl looks super bright when swatched heavily, but a single coat on your lips gives a more subtle pop of color. The shade is so versatile and flattering that I've found myself reaching for this gloss all the time since I received it.

While I love the look of Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm in Brody's Girl, there are a few things that bother me about this product. First of all, I find the rounded applicator very difficult to use. It makes it nearly impossible to apply the gloss evenly. If you must package lip gloss in a squeeze tube, at least give it a slanted tip!

Second, the wear time is not that great. I only go about 2-3 hours before the color and shine fade significantly enough that I need to reapply.

Still, those issues haven't stopped me from wearing Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm in Brody's Girl almost every day. I have plenty of coral lip products but this shade fills its own gorgeous, distinctive niche. And for $6, I can say that I am very happy overall with my purchase.

With 30 shades to choose from, which Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm do you find most tempting?
