Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick Review

The Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick comes in 25 shades including Ruby Kiss and Playful Rose pictured below.

I love this product because it keeps my lips in good condition, especially in the Winter months and I’d much rather wear a moisturizing lipstick than lip balm. I love having color on my lips!

The Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick formula is “Infused with marine collagen and jojoba oil to nourish, plump and soften lips and fine lines”

Being almost 50 my lips tend to be on the dryer side and I can’t wear matte liquids because the really dry out my lips. I love this formula because it has a satin finish and my lips feel more moisturized when I wear it. I feel like it has a good pigmentation and wear for a satin finish.

MOODMatcher Twist Stick Lip Color Review

I received the MOODMatcher Twist Stick Lip Color in Green in my September Glossybox. The lip stick has a retail price of $10 and it comes in green, orange, pink, yellow, light blue and red. Every color produces a different shade when it reacts with your lips.

What’s to love?

This is a nice light weight lipstick and I love the packaging and design. I got the green shade which gives my lips a nice shiny pink shade. I also love that  it moisturizes my lips without feeling heavy or gloopy. It does say that it lasts 12 hours but mine faded a bit with food and water.

The MOODMatcher Lip Stick has Aloe Vera and Vitamin E.

ISH Lip Statement Palette Review

I received the ISH Lip Statement Palette in my Spring 2018 FabFitFun Box and it’s beautiful! ISH was founded in 2016. According to Forbes ISH is a direct-to-consumer makeup line that puts a fun and inspiring spin on ordinary cosmetics and encourages women of all ages to utter the brand’s message: #IMSMOKINGHOT .

What’s to love?

The ISH Lip Statement Palette has “11 intensely pigmented shades and 1 tinted lip topper” and they have “rose extracts, shea butter, jojoba oil, and aloe vera for extra moisture“.

I am very impressed with this palette. Sometimes lip palettes are greasy or the product slips off. This is not the case with the ISH Lip Statement Palette. The shades are super easy to apply and stay in place. The color are very pigmented and you can blend colors.

I found the brush to be nice. It’s stiff and gives great control over the product.

They are Paraben free. Gluten free. Cruelty free.

Retail Price: $42

Eco Lips Mongo Kiss Lip Balm Review

I was at Walmart today and in desperate need of some lip balm so I picked up the Eco Lips Mongo Kiss Lip Balm in Peppermint and just WOW!

What’s to love?

The Mongo Kiss lip balm is cruelty free, gluten free, USDA Organic and they have an amazing story!

It’s made from Mongongo Oil that’s from a small village in Zambia, Africa and it comes in 8 scents including:

I have the Peppermint scent and it smells amazing, like pure peppermint. It goes one smooth and makes my lips feel amazing and soft. I also like that the tube is a bit larger than the standard ones.

I think this is my new favorite lip balm!

Supergoop Shine-On Lipscreen Review

I received a full-sized Supergoop Shine-On Lipscreen in my Glossybox Limited Edition CEW Awards Box and I’m excited to use it this Spring and Summer.

What’s to love?

sgSupergoop reminds me that Summer is near and I’m in love with this SPF 50 top-coat. I simply use the brush to swipe a little shine on my lipstick for sunscreen protection. The brush is easy to use and I love that it give my color some gloss.

Shine-On has grape polyphenols and sunflower seed oil which helps with dehydration too. The product is a clear gloss and has a very faint scent and taste that reminds me a bit of sunscreen but it’s not offensive. It feel more like a moisturizer on my lips that a gloss and and do get long wear (4-6 hours).

It is is cruelty-free and does not contain synthetic fragrance or oxybenzone. It is also free of  Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.

Retail Price: #22

Clarins Lip Comfort Oil Review

My new favorite Lip Oil for Fall is the Clarins Lip Comfort Oil. I got this sample in my August Birchbox. This luxury lip oil comes in 7 high shine finishes including Mint, Honey, Raspberry, Red Berry, Honey Glam (which has gold flecks), Tangerine and Candy (which is pink). I have Mint.

What’s to love?

According to Sephora this Lip Oil…

This pure plant oil formula—with a blend of hazelnut and organic jojoba oils—nourishes, smooths, and enhances lips while forming a protective layer of transparent color to help lock in moisture for deep hydration.

I found the formula to be super easy to apply and wear. It’s not sticky or heavy and it makes my lips shine. The colors are supposed to have a bit of a tint but the mint I have is clear.

The mint formula has a bit of a tingle and gives a plumping effect.  Candy & Tangerine react to the pH of your lips, giving them a customized shade of pink, for a natural, high-shine result and Honey Glam provides a shimmering result.

You can use it alone, under or on top of lipstick.

Full-Sized Price: $26 and it’s Made in France.

Fiona Stiles Signature Soft Matte Lip Color Review

This is my first experience with Fiona Stiles Beauty and I am really liking the Fiona Stiles Signature Soft Matte Lip Color in the shade Blix. I got it on sale at Ulta for $4! Regular price is $16.

What’s to love?

First up I love the case on this lipstick. It’s a deep purple metal with a magnetic top so that it grabs when you put the lid back on.

The lipstick itself is a beautiful matte cream that comes in 7 shades. I got Blix which is a an orange/red with a gold shimmer.

This is a nice high-end brand that feels very light going on but has amazing pigmentation. It does have a nice matte finish but isn’t drying which I love. One swipe and I got great coverage. They staying power is also very good for a matte/cream. I did have to reapply after I ate but that’s ok.

I’d love to try some more Fiona Stiles products now.

Maison Jacynthe Make-Up Review

I received 3 complimentary (free) products from the from the Maison Jacynthe line to review. All opinions are my own.

The Maison Jacynthe was founded in 2014 by Jacynthe René who is an actress and producer and the product line is mostly natural. Maison Jacynthe also joined PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program as one of their cruelty-free companies.

I received..

Maison Jacynthe Lipstick in Bordeaux Mate

This lipstick is 93 to 100% of natural origin (only the red pigment is for the moment synthetic).

First up I have to talk about the packaging. The lipstick tube is so unique and pretty. The cap of the tube is wood and silver and feel like a quality piece.

The lipstick itself is is a brick shade that’s a creamy sheer/matte. According to Maison Jacynthe “The candelilla wax allows a gentle application without drying of the lips. The oil of abyssinia allows the enhancement of the color and the long duration.

I did find it to be very pigmented and it has amazing lasting power. It does have a natural fragrance of goji that tastes natural and earthy.

Maison Jacynthe Varnishes Taormina

Next up I got a wonderful nail polish in a very pretty light lilac shade.

Their nail polishes are:

  • Free of 9 to 10 toxic products, the highest ecological guarantee in this field.
  • Between 75,5 and 80% of natural origin and enriched with organic silicon with fortifying and protective virtues.
  • Certified by PETA “humane on animals”.

Overall I really like the coverage and color of this polish. It looks beautiful with just one coat too.

Maison Jacynthe Eyeshadow

The final item I received was the eyeshadow in Affogato which is a nice purple/grey. The eyeshadow comes on cardboard then you can buy a wood and silver compact to house their powder products to reduce your environmental footprint. It is also 91 to 100% of natural origin.

The eyeshadow itself is so smooth and pigmented and has amazing staying power. This shade looks so pretty to make a smoky eye look.

Overall I think this is a quality natural line choice. They have a lot of products to offer including  mascara, eyeliner, blush, illuminators and more. Their shade palettes are so beautiful and natural too.
