Ruby Hammer Lip Serum Balm Shades & Swatches
There are three shades in the collection:
- FX – pearly finish that can be used as a highlighter on the rest of the face too
- Nude – universal nude
- Red – a bright tint of Ruby’s signature shade of red
I love these easy to use hybrid lip crayons. The formula melts effortlessly into the lips and feel softening and smoothing.
I think the Nude shade is my favourite because it’s so easy to wear and has a lovely optical volumising effect on the lips, as does the FX shade.
The FX shade is really interesting because it’s clear with a really flattering pearly shimmer that’s a bit more interesting than a clear gloss. It’s great to use as a topper over a matte colour and I am also excited to try it as a complexion highlighter too.
The red is lovely, a beautiful shade, but I am always a little scared of glossy reds so I haven’t worn that one too much. My favourite way to wear the Red one is a small amount press into the lips as a stain.
The twist up format is super convenient as you can twist it back down too, so you never need worry about smashing the bullet with the cap.
These are lovely lip crayons perfect for throwing in your handbag when you’re only the go to keep lips looking and feeling great.
