Neutral / Sheer – Here’s to the less is more mentality; to the woman who is more concerned with the person she is on the inside, than what she wears on the outside.  A woman wearing a sheer colored gloss is thought to be soft spoken, intelligent, and nurturing.  Study’s find this is men’s least favorite shade, while on the other hand, woman associate this shade with contentment and stability.
