I’m still on my quest for healthier lip products and recently purchased Josie Maran’s Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick in Berry Bliss.

The idea behind this lipstick is that it’s a gloss, a lipstick, and a lip balm in one. I find that multi purpose products don’t always work well and this is the case with this lipstick. The lipstick goes on quite smooth due to the clear outer core, but because the inner core of the lipstick contains the color, the berry pigment didn’t reach the edge of my lips like a regular lipstick. So I applied the lipstick and had to rub my lips together. I then had to apply again to the spots that didn’t have color. I didn’t mind this too much as I like the moisturizing properties of this lipstick and the berry color is quite pretty.

The swatch above turned out fairly light as the product is mixing a gloss with the pigment so the color will be more muted than a solid lipstick.
This lipstick has good ingredients such as argon oil, botanical ingredients, and is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. It’s a fairly expensive product, ($22.00 at Sephora), but if you’re like me and looking for a cruelty free product with no synthetic dyes then this lipstick may be worth purchasing.
