Beauty Obsession: MarieNatie Lip Gloss

I’m sure this will shock absolutely no one, but I’m kind of a lip gloss junkie. I carry around about eight different glosses with me every day (no wonder my purse is always so heavy!), and I like them all for different reasons. One is my typical every day gloss. One is so saturated with color that it requires a mirror for application (unless I want to scare people with the results). One is the perfect shade of pink…you get the idea.

I usually prefer gloss over lipstick because I have very full lips, and lipstick tends to make me look clownish instead of sultry. (There are exceptions, of course.) But one thing I absolutely cannot stand is a sticky gloss—the kind that makes you feel like your lips have suddenly become lint rollers (anything and everything sticks to them). Which is why I was glad to discover* the new lip gloss from MarieNatie!

What I tried: MarieNatie lip gloss, $18. It’s the newest item in the MarieNatie product line, and was just released last month.

First impressions: The ingredients list makes me happy. Check it out:

Jojoba oil, jojoba gel, pomegranate oil, sunflower seed oil, grapefruit seed oil, candelilla wax, carnauba wax, vitamin e, vitamin e acetate, mica and essential oil.

What caught me by surprise: The gloss has a rather strong smell, which Marie tells me comes from the gloss’s rose essential oil. However, once I put on the gloss, I couldn’t smell it at all—and I was completely won over by the texture. It goes on smooth, feels super soft on your lips, and has solid staying power, which makes it a rare find, in my experience. Most glosses are either super moisturizing but lacking staying power, or sticky (blech) and hard to remove. Even after the gloss had worn off, my lips felt soft and moisturized. Win!

Bonus: It comes in 12 shades! I tried American Beauty, which is a lovely shade of bright pink.

Beauty Obsession: Ruby Lips

Models with bright red lips are all over the runway right now, but you don’t have to wait until those new spring fashions arrive to add a little pop of red to your pout–red lips are perfect for fall, too.

To find your most flattering shades, look for lipsticks or glosses that match your skintone. If you have fair, pink-y skin, look for a cherry red shade. If your skin has olive tones, opt for a brighter, fire engine red (slightly more orange than the cherry red). Dark skinned girls look great with pretty much any shade of red (lucky you!), but deeper shades, or shades with a dash of purple, really stand out.

Here are a few of my favorite shades:

Nvey Eco Advanced Lip Color ($28) in Rust Red Shine and Red Orange Slight Shimmer.

Beauty Obsession: Revolution Organics

I mentioned my growing obsession with Revolution Organics Lip Gloss in August, when they held a place of honor in the sidebar, but I wanted to share a little bit more about exactly why I love this stuff (and Revolution Organics in general). One look at their products and you’ll never be able to think of organic makeup as ho-hum. From the chic, sleek packaging to the rich, bright colors, this isn’t your grandmother’s makeup—but I’m pretty sure she’ll love it as much as you will.

What I tried: Revolution Organics Beauty Balm (in blushed and bronzed), Revolution Organics All-Over Skin CrèmeRevolution Organics Lip Gloss.
