Glossier UltraLip Review

One of the best things about the UltraLip lip balm is how easy it is to wear. The color is versatile enough to go with any look, whether you’re wearing a full face of makeup or going for a more natural look. It adds just the right amount of color and shine to your lips, without looking too overdone or bold.  Glossier boasts their Ultralip Balm as having hydrating shine and color and it delivers and we can see why.

Color / Pigmentation

4 out of 5  –  Portrait is a cherry blossom pink.  It is the perfect natural hint of pink. It is a balm so it is not going to be super pigmented but I knew that going into it.  It definitely adds some visible color for very natural pink lipped look.  The UltraLip lip balm in Portrait is a beautiful, cherry blossom pink shade that is universally flattering. The color is subtle but buildable, so you can customize the intensity depending on your preference.

Feel and Hydration

3 out of 5  –  It makes my lips feel soft and hydrated when I use it.  I noticed that my lips were dry when I was not actively using it.  Now, let’s talk about the formula. The formula is lightweight and non-sticky, making it comfortable to wear all day. It’s also infused with hydrating ingredients like meadowfoam and jojoba oil, so it nourishes and moisturizes your lips while giving them a glossy finish.


5 out of 5  –  It is pretty much scentless which I love.  I don’t like overly fragrant lip products as they can give me a headache.


4 out of 5  –  Cute minimalistic light pink packaging, no complaints.  I also love the engraved G on the top of this lippie!


$$  –  This lip balm was under $20, it is not the cheapest around but also not the most expensive either.


4 out of 5 – we think that the Glossier UltraLip lip balm in Portrait is an excellent product for anyone who wants a glossy, high-shine lip look with just the right amount of color. The formula is comfortable to wear, hydrating, and the shade is universally flattering. Easy to use for even the pickiest of makeup users, give it a try!
