I purchased the color Salmon, a warm, pretty, orangey, pinky, beautiful salmon color. It looks nice and understated, and brings out all the warm tones in my skin! What I love about it is that it almost has a glossy finish, making your lips look lush, and the packaging is beautiful. I have no problems with this lipstick, except it doesn't last very long at all, so I knocked one lippie off.
I just bought this in Nude. When I looked at the lipstick bullet, which is dirty pinky lavender color, I wondered how this would color would look like a "nude color" on my lips.
Somehow or another, it was able to transform my reddish pigmented lips into a luscious soft baby pink with glints of lavender/blue. Outstanding. And man does it last.
I paid $17 for it at Whole Foods.
I ordered a bunch of samples off whiterabbitbeauty.com at $1 per sample (per shade). As I can only find these lipsticks in a specialty store in my city, this is a great way to try a bunch of colours without having to drive far and then buy the full size lipsticks. I prefer the Zuzu Luxe lipsticks to the Gabriel Color ones, as they are bright and matte. I normally add a gloss on top, although the Gabriel Color ones do not need it. The lipsticks are great quality for a vegan fragrance-free products (the Gabrielcosmeticsinc.com site also states that the Gabriel Color lipsticks are Lead and Gluten free - good to know!!). After hearing that the average woman consumes about 7 pounds of lipstick in a lifetime, I'd rather stick to these natural alternatives than the popular companies out there filled with chemicals - reading ingredients has become a must for me. The price is a little higher than drug stores, but equal to (and sometimes lower) than popular high end brands.
picked one of these up at my local whole foods grocery store. the color I got was copper glaze which looks very red-toned in the tube, but on the lips is a very natural color. it's actually the same exact shade as my all-time favorite NYX lipstick shade in Darling.
Love the color and formula, but it is not long wearing. It's also a bit pricey to be sold in a grocery store. I think I paid around $13.00 for it.
I have 3 of Gabriel Cosmetics lipsticks : Taupe, Nude, and Sheer Pink.
Each formula is different.
Taupe: Is a matte warm neutral light beige color. It can get dry as the day goes on.. I wear it with lipgloss, and the consistency of that combined is perfect.
Nude: Is a cooler neutral matte beige, with a shimmery bluish opalescent undertone to it.. It's more moisture filled than Taupe.
Sheer Pink: is a cool bright pink, very moisture filled, with a slight shimmer in no particular hue.. it smells of roses. I love this alot. I will wear it lightly dabbed on as a lip-stain.. and it stays on for hours like that..
All are all natural.
The only thing is the price has gone up, some places sell it for like $30 a tube.
