It is now officially winter time here in Australia!
One of my main challenges in the cooler months is keeping my lips hydrated and smooth. The skin upon the lips are one of the thinnest and most sensitive parts of our bodies. Protecting your lips is an important job!
After recently hearing wonderful things about the Arbonne lipstick range from fellow beauty bloggers, I knew that I wanted to try these lipsticks! After being contacted by Arbonne I was lucky enough to be able to trial 3 lipsticks from their hydrating lip range.
"So, for the next 5 weeks I put my lips to the test! "
Arbonne's range of intensely hydrating and moisturising lipsticks, allow the wearer to achieve "long-lasting beautiful lip colour, with added health benefits", states Arbonne. Packed with Vitamins A, C and E as well as Pomegranate Extract, the formula intensely hydrates and conditions lips with a rich colour and beautiful scent that glides on smoothly for build-able coverage.
The Arbonne lipstick range is long-lasting and smudge-resistant, each of the 14 available shades provides lavish coverage that WILL last.
Arbonne Lipstick in Candy
'Sensual but sweet cool toned pink with a slight pearlescent finish'
Arbonne Lipstick in Runway Rouge
'Runway rocket in ravishing coral red'
When I applied Runway Rouge I noticed it wasn't your classic red, it is bright without being too over the top. It also has very slight coral undertones and subtle sparkle that is primarily visible when you remove the lipstick (tiny sparkle particles are left on the lip). Runways Rouge is easy to apply and doesn't feather on the lips.
Arbonne Lipstick in Jam
'the perfect neutral plum for everyone'
Initially I thought Jam would be my least favourite out of the three I tried. Boy was I wrong! I found Jam to be the PERFECT neutral lip that leans towards a plum tone. It is a fantastic go-to lip colour, as it goes with whatever makeup look you are wearing!
Available in 14 shades: Earth, Scarlet, Coral Reef, Strawberry, Shell, Bordeaux, Copper, Rose Petal, Satin, Mauve, Vintage Rose, Candy, Runway Rouge & Jam.
All the lipsticks applied smoothly and with precision, in fact, they were a dream to apply! The small and slanted applicator tip made it easy to shape my cupid's bow. Impressive pigmentation of all colours and NO scent or taste to the product. YES, I did taste it! Such a dedicated beauty blogger I am :)
