When switching to more natural beauty products, I think the lips are the best place to start, because you ingest a bit of whatever is on your lips. One of the first natural lip products I tried was a 100% Pure lip glaze, and 100% Pure continues to have some of my favorite lip products- they’re all fruit pigmented, how cool is that!?
I love the texture of these; they are creamy with build-able colour, and I haven’t had any issues with my lips feeling dry. I’ve used the colours Cabernet (a classic red), Coquette (nude-ish medium pink) – a great everyday colour – and Elderberry (sheer pink/red) which is more sheer than the others, more like a tinted balm.
Honestly from these photos it doesn’t look like much of a difference in colour, but Coquette is quite a nude pink compared to Elderberry, which is more of a sheer blue-ish red.
Pomegranate Oil Anti Aging Lipstick
I have this in Calendula which is peachier than I was hoping for (my photo looks very orange). The issue I have with ordering lip products online is that a lot of the shades look similar, and it’s very difficult to know what the colour is like from a photo. I try to find different videos and photos of swatches but it can still be difficult. As a lipstick, it’s nice and wears well, although in comparison to the lip glazes, the colour is more matte and I find it a bit drier.
Lip & Cheek Stain in Cherry (only one colour)
This is very different from their other lip products; it’s a build-able stain and can provide a very vibrant pink with a few coats. I really like the colour of it and the control you get with the application, but it’s not moisturizing (although I don’t find it drying either), and putting a balm over it takes some of the product off and makes it so that it doesn’t ‘stick’ anymore. It also has a very bitter taste. I don’t actually mind it, but you definitely realize it when you lick your lips, so I would avoid it if you don’t like lip products with a weird taste. It claims to be a cheek tint as well, although I rarely use it on my cheeks, because it dries quickly and is difficult to blend in.
Lip & Cheek Tint
This I use more as a cheek tint, but it’s also nice on the lips. It’s like a tinted balm and you can build up the colour. I used to have it in Shimmery Strawberry, but when replacing it decided to go with one without shimmer and got Pink Grapefruit Glow instead.
Have you tried any 100% Pure lip products?
