A look into beauty, that doesn't harm our furry friends
Next up in this week’s theme of 100% Pure products is one of their Fruit Pigment Lip Glazes, in the color Lychee. I’m a bit ashamed to admit this, but I purchased this WAY back when (March, I believe?), and I’ve let it gather dust in the back of my collection. With the focus of this week’s posts, I was reminded of of this lovely lil’ lippy when I gathered all my 100% Pure products. I quickly demo’d it again, and remembered why I picked it up those months ago. Yes y’all, this is a good one! Just like the Black Tea Mascara, the lipstick is encased in a beautiful mirrored-metallic case, designed with subtle white florals, vines, and random silhouettes of fruit (super cute!).
Unfortunately this specific color isn’t available anymore, but when I did some digging bloggers referred to the website’s color description as a “naked pink”, which I would say is absolutely off the mark! Looking at the swatch above, I’d dare to say it’s more of a reddish-pink, with warm undertones. Aside from the “off” description, I’m very happy with this glaze- it applies smoothly, and feels creamy and hydrating on the lips. The first swipe can appear slightly sheer (like the picture below), but you can build it up slightly (similar to the color on my wrist). It’s a perfect amount of lipstick color for that natural “everyday effortless” look. My glaze seemed to have decent staying power, where even after eating and drinking it left a very even stain on my lips. The shiny appearance doesn’t seem to last too long, but it never accentuated any dryness on my lips.
Other points worth mentioning is that there is a slight fruity scent to the glaze, which comes from it’s natural ingredients. The company doesn’t use any synthetic dyes or fragrances, which also makes this ideal for anything who has sensitivity to such ingredients. What makes the glazes so hydrating is the cocoa and avocado butters mixed in- seriously, this feels just as good as what I remembered the Revlon Lip Butter’s feeling like, if not better. Looking at the ingredients list in general is VERY impressive for those who are natural-green beauty lovers:
The 100% Pure website also describes this as having a matte finish, but I don’t believe that it’s anything similar to the fast-drying matte lipsticks that have become popular within the last year (ex: Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick and Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream). Once the lip glaze dries down from it’s initial application, it just looses it’s initial dewy/shiny gloss, but it never feels completely dry or “stuck” on your lips. Currently there are 14 different shades available- I think the next one I have my eye on is a brighter color, Fruit Punch. Are you interested in any of the colors available? Or have you tried a lip glaze before? I’d love to hear it in the comments! ❤
