My love of lipstick is no secret: pinks, purples, reds, nudes, I love them all! More recently, I’ve also been interested in finding cleaner, more natural products to work into my lifestyle. So, when I was recently offered the opportunity to test out a product from Arbonne, it was somewhat serendipitous!
With botanically based ingredients, eco-friendly packaging, and a shipping process that is certified carbon neutral, Arbonne really is taking the lead in the cosmetic industry with regard to being earth-friendly. They sell everything from supplements, to bath and body products, to makeup, and all are formulated with pure, safe, and beneficial ingredients. There’s even an ingredient guide on their website, so you’ll always have the peace of mind of knowing what you’re putting on or in your body.
The product I chose to test was Arbonne’s Smoothed Over Lipstick in the colour “Poppy”: a gorgeous reddish-orange hue. The first thing I noticed about this lipstick was how smoothly it applied. It’s got a rich, creamy consistency that feels super luxurious (it’s formulated with natural butters), and it left my lips feeling soft and moisturized throughout the day. It’s richly pigmented and has a glossy finish that makes your lips appear fuller and plumper. Because it’s vegan and formulated with natural ingredients, (botanical extracts, fruit oils, and etcetera), you’ll want to apply it gently to avoid damaging the product. Arbonne also recommends storing it in a cool, dry place (because no one wants a melted lipstick in their purse or car!).
The Smoothed Over Lipstick comes in over 15 different colours ranging from neutrals to brights, and retails for $34.00 CDN. Some others I have my eye on? “Dream”, “Peony”, “Dahlia”…and pretty much every other colour (it’s a problem!).
