Softlips 100% PURE Natural Review + GIVEAWAY! {CLOSED}

Shandell's Review


Remember Softlips? I loved their sleek little chapsticks when I was in middle school. Now I'm a bit of a cosmetics junkie, always in search of a great makeup. Recently I contacted the people of Softlips about trying their new PURE 100% Natural products {you know, in my ever expanding endeavors to be more "green"} and they sent me a whole package of their products to try out.


I received lip butter, lip polish, 3 shades of lip gloss + lip tint. These products couple 100% natural ingredients with light pleasant flavors and are free from preservatives, phthalates, sulfates, parabens, mineral oil and gluten.





The lip butter is smooth, colorless and has a great mild vanilla berry scent.












The lip polish exfoliates nicely and smells great. I love coconut and hope that they'll make a lip butter or lip gloss with the same great scent.


















I've tried other chapstick with a hint of color, but being someone who doesn't like a lot of color I've not found one that is subtle enough. I don't like to have to reapply often to avoid a splotchy, faded, or funky lip-liner look. Softlips lip tints are just what I'd been wanting. They go on smooth like chapstick and have enough color to be different, but not so much that if it fades over time you feel like you need to reapply. The other great thing is that is lasts for a long time!














The lip gloss is a bit shinier than the chapstick and the color is slightly richer. It's still a subtle look, which is something I appreciate. I also like that it's not sticky like most glosses. I hate the feeling of something sticky on my lips!


I thought that the light shell pink would be my favorite but the coral charm actually suits my olive skin tone a bit better. I thought it would be too dark judging from the photos, but it goes on much lighter.


The best thing about all these products is that they are SPF 15! All good lip products should have sunscreen in my opinion.
