glô·minerals Lipstick in Rose Petal might be the most flattering nude shade in my collection to date. The "rose" in the shade, as well as the picture on the gloprofessional site, might lead you to believe that it's more pink than in reality. Rose Petal is actually a nude that seems to have the ability to lean both peach and mauve on my skin. As a result, it has some depth that other nude lipstick I've tried seem to lack. No corpse look with this lippie!

The formula boasts wearability with ingredients like Vitamins like A, C, and E along with Green Tea Extract to smooth and hydrate lips. The consistency is on the thick side, but still remains blendable. The only thing that wasn't a "wow" factor to me was the wear time. I didn't underwhelm me with a solid 2 hours before it wore off, but it couldn't withstand a morning coffee. Sometimes I rely on the stain a lipstick leaves behind to keep my lip color lasting through the day, but there was no such thing with this lipstick. I'm not sure if that's due to the light color of the shade, or the nature of the formula. Luckily, the shade is so light that reapplication isn't a huge deal - just swipe on and go! Even though the lasting power wasn't there for me, I did feel like glô·minerals Lipstick left my lips more moisturized than many lipsticks do in the winter.

At $17 for 3.4g, these cost the same per gram as MAC lipsticks. While the formula isn't quite as creamy  as MAC's (although I've only tried two MAC shades), the overall quality is about the same. With 19 shades, the collection is large. But, after seeing how different Rose Petal looked online, I would recommend finding swatches online before purchasing.
