For months, I’ve gazed longingly at Juice Beauty’s website, waiting for my chance to try this much-adored California based all-natural brand. Finally, the time has come! I received the Reflecting Lip Gloss Collection a couple of weeks ago, and have been wearing these glosses every day since! The collection ($36 at juicebeauty.com) consists of all four Juice Beauty glosses – Champagne, Pink, Guava and Fig.
Ingredients: Ricinus communis (organic castor seed oil)*, cera alba (organic beeswax)*, sesamum indicum (organic sesame seed oil)*, vitis vinifera (organic grape seed oil)*, vaccinium corymbosum (organic blueberry seed oil)*, punica granatum (organic pomegranate seed oil)*, rubus idaeus (organic raspberry seed oil)*, actinidia chinensis (organic kiwi seed oil)*, vaccinium macrocarpon (organic cranberry seed oil)*, fragaria ananassa (organic strawberry seed oil)*, euterpe oleracea (organic acai berry)*, lycium chinense (organic goji berry)*, triisostearyl citrate, tocopherol (Vitamin E), agave americana (agave leaf extract), thymus vulgaris (thyme extract), melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree extract), rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary extract) and citrus sinensis (sweet orange oil). Pink color may contain titanium dioxide, mica, iron oxides.
Impressions of the shades:
Champagne is a very light, barely-there colour. Almost clear, with a hint of nude beige, it looks stunning on its own or over a lipstick.
Pink is the perfect rosy shade, not too warm, not too cool, just a lovely, medium pink colour.
Guava is a beautiful light warm red.
On me, Fig is a peachy/bronze with hints of mauve.
Impressions of the gloss: I. LOVE. THESE. GLOSSES. They are so conditioning, so high-shine. They do have a bit of glitter, which I’m not usually a fan of, but in this case it’s just so eye-catching and beautiful. I use Champagne as a cheekbone highlight as well, when I’m going somewhere special, and it adds a gorgeous, shimmery effect to my cheekbones. I think my favourite is Guava, but it changes on a daily basis, which is a good thing. I love all the colours and have a hard time deciding which one I adore the most! They all smell and taste like Fruit Loops (minus the calories!), and the pigmentation is actually quite impressive, especially with Guava and Fig. No, they’re not going to last all day, because they’re glosses, but they have average lip gloss staying power and they leave a soft colour behind as they fade. These glosses make my lips feel like silk, and there is absolutely no stickiness to them, which I fully appreciate. I highly recommend this entire collection.
