bareMinerals Cream Glaze Lip Topcoat

We admit, we're stumped. We don't quite know how to categorise this product, from the bareMinerals Modern Pop Collection.

In the tube, it's a rather unalluring shade of white. Swipe it onto the lips with the applicator, though, and it creates a soft, sensual, creamy glaze - not a gloss, not a lipstick, but a satiny finish - on top of your own skin, or over a chosen lipstick. We think we'll call it a 'transformer', actually.

Which makes it a bit of a gem, in our book: a way to play with your existing lipstick collection, for some entirely new looks. It's seriously comfy, too - and lightly-fragranced (we're getting vanilla).

Our lips may be glazed over, but our eyes certainly aren't.
