Arbonne Lip Collection | Aster, Calla & Berry

October brought some chilly weather with it here in Southern Ontario, and that makes it officially feel like fall. For me, fall means sweater weather, pumpkin spice, and dark lips! I love a bold statement lip, so when I was asked if I wanted to try some bold colours from Arbonne's Lip Collection* I jumped at the chance! The collection features Arbonne's Smoothed Over Lipstick (available in 16 shades), Glossed Over Lip Gloss (available in 10 shades) and Cosmetics Lip Liner (available in 6 shades). 

The Arbonne Lip Beauty Collection products contain Botanicals with antioxidants and naturally derived moisturizing elements. The Antioxidants support skin, helping minimise free radical activity, and the moisturizing elements help to maintain  moisture levels to prevent dry, chapped lips which helps minimize the appearance of aging.

The products from the collection that I have been putting to the test are the Smoothed Over Lipstick in Aster* the Glossed Over Lip Gloss in Calla* and the Cosmetics Lip Liner in Berry*! The lipstick is a lovely deep berry colour that compliments my fair complexion. The formula is extremely moisturizing, is comfortable on my lips and has a smooth, satin glossy finish. I also found that the colour lasts fairly well (3+ hours) and stains my lips, so even when the colour starts to wear away, my lips are left with a nice berry hue to them! 

The lipgloss, in Calla is a beautiful shade but I'm not in love with the formula. I find the formula very thick, and uncomfortable on the lips. I found that it slides around alot and can look a little gloopy? - even when I try to apply a thin layer. I am also not a large fan of the scent - to me it smells like rotten bananas? Sorry Arbonne! The lip liner in Berry is a perfect match to Aster, but again I am not a fan of the formula. It is quite dry and it tugs at my lips as I apply it. Once on, it does keep the colour in place all day and prevented any bleeding, I just wish the formula was a little bit more creamy.

Out of the collection, my favourite product is smoothed over lipstick in Aster - the colour is beautiful, and the formula is great! The lipstick retails for $34, while the lipgloss and lipliner retail for $31 and $28 respectively. The products in the collection are all created with plant-based formulas, are vegan certified, hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested. What is your favourite lip colour to wear in the fall? I think that Aster is going to be one of my most worn shades this season!
