I’m a HUGE lover of lipstick. So, I was so pleased when I was gifted an Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipstick after winning a competition organised by the lovely Tori Lavan. I came across the competition on a Facebook blogger page and was added into a Facebook event were Tori was promoting Arbonne’s products and producing fun competitions and games. I was very lucky to win one of these and therefore won one of the lipsticks. She gave me a choice of colours after the event had ended and I chose ‘Hibiscus’ which appeared a light maroon colour – something I usually reach for. In a matter of days, my lipstick arrived in perfect condition.
When I opened the lipstick, I was shocked to find that the colour was not what I expected. I was hoping for the colour I saw on the chart and on the box but the actual lipstick was a bright red shade. Despite this, I tried it on and absolutely loved it. It’s the kind of red you tend to see Rita Ora and Taylor Swift wearing. A very bold, daring red. This is not something I usually go for but it made me feel amazing.
The lipstick itself is very highly pigmented with a lovely satin finish. It really does live up to its name as it is so smooth and easy to apply. It leaves your lips feeling moisturised and doesn’t dry up during the day. However, this glossy finish does mean it needs to be reapplied after a few hours to make it last all day.
The ingredients are super interesting. For example, fruit extracts from watermelons and apples are used to create the product. Maybe more beauty companies should bear this in mind if this is what is causing the lipstick to be so smooth. Arbonne pride themselves on being green so their use of plants and oils are prominent and it feels great to be wearing a product that claims to be all-natural.
Although this is not a sponsored post, I’m for sure thinking of investing in some more Arbonne products. There are so many more shades of lipsticks for me to try. If you’d like to browse the products check out Tori’s Arbonne page here.
Have you ever tried any Arbonne products and would you try any in the future?
