This is a long overdue post on a few products I loved this fall season and continue to reach for as we head into winter. I have two lipsticks from Arbonne's Smoothed Over Lipstick line in Iris and Dahlia.
The formula is smooth and moisturizing, pigmentation is fairly good, you can get full opacity in two or three swipes and the wear is great. The formula feels very comfortable on the lips and it had a nice rich feel and look to it which is a nice change form the abundance of matte lipsticks we've seen coming out this year. Both shades are nice and vampy, Dahlia is a dark red with warm undertones to me and Iris a dark mauve red. The one downside to these lipsticks is the fact that the creaminess of the product seems to affect the sturdiness of the lipstick itself. I have both lipsticks moving around in the bullet and I have to apply them with care as I am afraid any pressure will cause them to snap off the base. I am actually considering depotting these in a lip palette as I would be heart broken to lose such fantastic colors.
The third product that was sent to me was a lipliner in Berry. The lip liner is ... fine. I don't find it pigmented enough and it is a tad too waxy for my liking, it's quite hard drawing on a precise line with it when you have to apply that much pressure to get color.
Do you guys use Arbonne? Everything I tried from them so far really impressed me; their It's A Long Story Mascara is one of the best I have ever used.
