Review & Swatches: Arbonne Cosmetics Part 2

Hello! I’m back again, this time with a review :)This post I am reviewing lipsticks, lip liners, eyeliners and some more shades of blush and eyeshadows from the Arbonne range.

Again, I borrowed Bella’s makeup kit so I could do all these reviews so thanks very much Bella!! I really appreciate it 🙂

Lipsticks:


What Arbonne says about the lipsticks: “Long-wearing, feather-resistant lipstick glides on easily for full coverage, and intensely conditions and hydrates lips.”

What I say: I agree with the description, these lipsticks are super creamy and very hydrating which I love (I hate it when you apply a lipstick and it sucks the moisture out of your lips and you end up with dry lips at the end of the day!) It would be nice if there some shades that aren’t so shiny as not everyone likes shiny lipstick.

My favourite colours are: Candy, Rose Petal, Satin and Strawberry!

The Essentials:
Verdict: 4/5
$36 Retail

Lipliners:


What Arbonne has to say: “Smudge-proof creamy lip liner defines lips with durable pigments, helping to extend the wear of lip polish and lipstick.”

What I have to say: These pencils are nice and creamy and pigmented. What I don’t like is that they are one of those wind up pencils that are supposed to “sharpen” themselves. I much prefer to use a pencil that I can sharpen myself so I can get a nice precise line when lining my lips.

My favourite colours are: Cherry, Pink Mauve and Cafe.

The Essentials:
Verdict: 3.5/5 (Just because of the design)
$32 Retail

Eyeliners:


What Arbonne has to say: “Long-wearing, creamy eye liner glides on effortlessly for flawless precision and definition. Includes detachable sharpener. Safe for contact lens users.”

What I have to say: Loving how soft and creamy the liners are, and they really are designed to stay put. I had to really work at removing the swatches from my arm…I do like a liner that doesn’t fade away within hours! Again, the draw back is that I don’t like the wind up design..

My favourite colours are: Olive and Ebony. I don’t like Charcoal, it looks more like a light blue than charcoal…Toffee would be a good colour for lining your brows if you like to use a brow pencil. Obviously it would be great for lighter colour brows not dark 😛 Cocoa could be used for darker brows 🙂

The Essentials:
Verdict: 3.5/5
$32 Retail

Blush:

What Arbonne has to say: “Incredibly lightweight, mineral-infused pigment creates a natural-looking blush to highlight the complexion.”

What I have to say: I like the Arbonne blushes, I like how lightweight they are…Ballet is SO pale on my arm you can barely see it! You would have to be very fair for this colour to show up on your cheeks. Berry would look nice with a more tan complexion…if you are too pale I think you could risk looking sunburnt as it’s quite a bright pink/peach colour.

The Essentials:
Verdict: 4/5
$40 Retail Price.

Eyeshadows:


What Arbonne has to say:  “Richly pigmented, mineral infused eye shadow is blendable and long-wearing.”

What I have to say:  I don’t think I would go so far as to say “richly pigmented”…I did have to do a few layers before the colours really showed up. However, the texture is lovely, soft and creamy which I love. Moss is a pretty green, definitely adding this to my “to buy” list hehe. Linen is a great colour to blend out darker colours…as you can see it’s very close to my skin tone.

My favourite colours: Moss and Linen.

The Essentials:
Verdict: 3.5
$26 Retail Client Price.

Where to buy?
Through me!  😀

    To get started as an Arbonne representative it would cost you $109 to get their Consultant Starter Kit, get 35% off the retail rate of all of their goods, be enrolled in the
    Mercedes Benz cash bonus program and have an unlimited income potential.
    A highly-rated product, Arbonne was design to meet the needs of
    all skin types affected by acne. I later realized there were
    options beyond lipstick, powder and oil-free lotions.
