AMW Reviews: Mineraux Mulberry Organic Lip Color

I haven't use a lot of lip gloss products lately!  I am actually leaning towards moisturizing lipsticks instead as I like my lips a bit toned down.  My lips are quite picky with the lip products I use because of extreme dryness and weird fullness!  I actually prefer lip tints better on regular days.  That's why when Mineraux came out with an organic lip color that states to combine healing benefits plus nice lip color, I am game to give this a test!

Pros
  • very nice shade, not too overwhelming
  • does not dry the lips
  • looks very natural
  • ingredients are written all over the product, can easily check out ingredient list
  • non-sticky
  • does not leave a yucky film after removing lip color
  • since it works like a moisturizing lipstick, it lasts longer than regular gloss 
  • tested by drinking water and coffee, the lip color transfers a bit on cup but the color stays on lips!  Quite impressive!
Cons
  • the sticker packaging, I prefer the brand name printed, but it doesn't matter
  • if you are looking for a super glossy finish, this isn't the one
Overall
This is the first lip gloss packaged product that I've tried that doesn't have a "lip gloss" finish.  It looks like a moisturizing lipstick in a lipgloss bottle!  This product is very smooth and easy to apply.  I actually like this product because I have quite full lips and a very glossy lip gloss will enhance the fullness of my lips, so I actually like the subtle glow it gives instead of the "Hi!  My face consists of one huge lips" look!

The healing benefits of the lip color is too early to tell but I like the fact that my lips does not dry out every after usage.

Tips
  • if lips are extremely dry, exfoliate lips once or twice a week and leave with petroleum jelly or your favorite lip treatment
  • apply lip liner prior to this lip color application to make the lip color last longer
  • after every usage, I prefer wiping the wand with paper towel or cloth to prevent bacteria from growing
  • do not share lip gloss using the same wand to others, use a lip brush or applicator
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

  1. Would you have other tips on keeping wands of this type clean? Even after much care, wands tend to become saturated with product after sometime. I was considering washing just the tip but am not sure how to keep water from flowing into the tube and contaminating the content inside.

  10. Jo.frougal, yes, you can try using a lip brush or cotton buds instead of the wand type included in this lip color. I think wiping it with tissue after every use is enough especially if you only use this for yourself :)


    Jenn, really? I have tried more glossier products! And i like this :)

    Anastacia, same here !I hate sticky lip products! No matter how nice it looks, I get turned off by it!
