With Valentine’s Day coming up next week, I have been on the hunt for a red lipstick to channel my inner seductress. And I am pleased to let you know that I have found The One. Ladies, please allow me to introduce you to Arbonne Lipstick in Strawberry.
Arbonne is a brand that I was introduced to last year when a PR contacted me and after trialling a few products, I was smitten. (See review here) Their products aren’t available in shops though and they are like Avon where you need to find an Arbonne rep. For more information, here’s their website.
Everything about Arbonne Lipstick in Strawberry can be described in one word – SEXY! The sleek gun-metal packaging is luxe. And then the siren red is SEXY!!! Which means when I wear it, I feel sexy too! “I’m sexy and I know it! Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle!”
It also helps that this blue-based red makes my teeth look super-duper-white!
The small slanted bullet makes it easy to shape my cupid’s bow. And oh myyyyyy, the formula is amazing! It glides on with ease with great pigmentation and has a satin finish. It’s moisturising and nourishes my lips. Heck, there’s no need for a lip primer.
Unscented lipsticks are the bee’s knees. Arbonne lipstick has no smell and no yukky taste.
The lasting power is impressive and done well against a bowl of soup noodles. However, as with all red lippies, I would recommend lining and filling lips with a red lip pencil prior to application.
I can definitely say that Arbonne Lipstick in Strawberry is my HG (Holy Grail) red lipstick. Yes, there you go! I have said it!!!! It is PERFECT!
Lipstick Swatch : Arbonne Lipstick In Strawberry
Last month in Hong Kong, I had the opportunity to buy their infamous (but discontinued) Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon. I was ready to pay and go. But the Chanel SA insisted that they’d try it on my lips first…and oh boy, I looked awful. AWFUL!!! As I don’t have that in my collection, I can’t really compare the two shades…but from memory, they are rather similar; being blue-based reds. I think…? Any ideas, ladies?
