Ugh, this company just kills me... They have a thousand and one shades of PINK!!!!!! Even the ones that are described as red are, in fact, pink. I've tried several, including the supposedly red Pomegranate--it was hot pink. And the supposedly nude Seduce--it was cotton candy pink. My husband laughed out loud when I tried it on. And it ticks me off because I love their ingredients, the texture, the packaging, the smell, everything, except they can't make a non-pink color apparently...
But!!! I just found a great alternative... Delizioso Skincare makes an all natural lipstick in a color called Red Carpet... Just ordered, have high hopes, we'll see! In the meantime, I can make do with my Burt's Bees Rose Tinted Lip Balm (yes, I know Rose sounds pink, but it's surprisingly neutral and sheer enough that it works for me.)
Well, hope my rant helped my fellow gals who want all natural, non-toxic lip color in more neutral or reddish tones. :-)
I purchased this in several colors, based on the high "would re-purchase" rate, but I was so disappointed. The colors (ranging from nudes to wine) looked weird and garish on me: not natural or sheer at all. I also found it made my lips burn a little.
I like their glosses much better, but would not recommend this to someone who is looking for a natural, sheer product. I will be returning the glazes and getting more of their gloss.
I have this in Boysenberry. I think it's pretty true to the color above and the description on their site. A true red. It's really pretty,creamy, super moisturizing, and sorta sheer. This IMO is more like a colored lipbalm( reminds me of honeybee gardens lipstick). It does have plenty of color, but not real long lasting, like a matte lipstick.. I prefer more long lasting color that is more like a lipstain..like Zuzu's lipstick. Still it is really nice and the pkg is really pretty! Great green company, and my 1st product from them..will be buying more!
Bought Coquette online.
The colour is strange, on my hand it looks warmer than NYX Diva, but colder on the lips. Not flattering on me, but my mom liked it.
A bit drying on me (all lipsticks are, adding a little lip balm is no problem), but, again, my mom thought it felt like a lip balm.
Will try again in other shades.
Love the ingredients.
I really love this lip glaze. I have never been a lipstick person, but was looking for a slightly more matte look than I could get from a gloss. The texture is creamy and it has pretty good staying power. I usually reapply twice during the work day. I wanted a neutral shade, and started with Lychee which is nice, but Rose Petal ended up being a perfect shade for me. It comes in a really pretty silver metal tube, which a nice switch from the plastic that most companies of similar price points use. LOVE this product.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this vegan natural lipstick! I agree "100%" with the review right before mine. These lipsticks go on very moisturizing, but do tend to get a little dry as the day goes on...however...they do not dry gunky or make your lips look caked. They dry to a very cool stain. I freaking love that! I could reapply or put on a lip gloss or balm and it is gorgeous. I am a lipstick junky and I am very impressed with these. I also feel better about how natural they are. God knows how many chemicals us girls consume. I have 5 colors and love them all.
I love these. Got the Peach Bellini and Strawberry. Both are pinky, but the Strawberry is darker. They are great, moisturizing and nice. The lips do kind of feel dry after the buttery part wears off, then you are left with an awesome stain. I really like that, if my lips start to get dry i just put another balm on or reapply. pretty colors and smell nice. love these !
I wanted to review this lip product, as I love when a company is making great efforts to come out with a natural cosmetic product. I also like this company because when I asked them about whether their products are gluten free they responded quickly with adding this information to each product on their site, and they also explain where their Vitamin E comes from. Very classy and professional.
I have the lip glaze in Lychee and Raspberry. DO NOT put on a lip balm product (I use only Korres lip butters) before you put on this lip glaze, as for me it will make it harder to see the color. I apply this on my lips just after I wash my face in the morning and during the time I regularly apply my makeup - sans lip butter. LYCHEE is a creamy, but not too creamy, opaque rosey color that looks fabulous on my cool, light olive-toned skin. It is my favorite rosey lipstick I own. It is matte. I have not had any problems with this color. It is not drying whatsoever. RASPBERRY is sheer. Sort of has the same consistency and sheerness as the Korres Mango Lipsticks. With a few swipes the color is more pronounced. It is a beautiful pink berry color - raspberry is an excellent name for it. Color lasts nicely, but the LYCHEE does tend to last longer. These colors also do not fade into some other weird color. I hate when lip colors do that. The packaging is great - high-end, well made. (I use to work at Neimans and I.Magnin in SF years ago, so I know what's nice and high end.) A nice pretty silver sleek tube with white print of flowers. Very pretty. I have carried these around in my purse, pockets, car, etc and the printing on them has not faded - they look brand new and I have had these two for several months. The caps stay on and does not fall off BTW. I'm very impressed with this line and intend on buying more of them.
I thought it would be a lighter texture since it is lip "glaze", but it's very pigmented and opaque like a matte lipstick. I do like it even though it wasn't as I expected. It's creamy and colorful and doesn't dry my lips out.
I stopped buying lip products containing polybutene (and some other stuff) after i realized that's plastic... and I don't want to be eating plastic... of any form.
I try to only buy personal care products made from stuff that sounds like it came off a tree or out of the ground.
Lip products for me, must be made from natural ingredients cause i'm eating it in, whether i like it or not.
I love the texture of this lipstick. It's perfect. Feels like a thick rich buttery balm, it's emollient, spreads like a buttery dream, protects my lips from chapping, not glossy-shiny, and the color pigmentation is super saturated.
The color selection sucks though because it's all pinks/reds.
There's no basic colors like beiges and peaches... there are no nude colors.
I have lychee and i think peach... but i have to tone those down with MAC creme d'nude because alone, it's just too much.
I will buy more if they come out with some normal and basic colors.
