For this week’s Friday In Review I am going to swatch and review all the Arbonne lipsticks that I own plus my two favourite Arbonne lip glosses.
Jam – A favourite with my mother of the brides and mature clients as this brings nice colour to your face…and makes your teeth look really white!
Candy – This is one of my favourites from Arbonne. It’s a bright pink with a slight purple hue to it.
Coral Reef – Another favourite. I used to wear this colour almost every day! It looks nice on everyone and compliments most eye makeups.
Satin – I have barely used this colour and today I questioned myself as to why! It’s actually really nice. I would say it’s a light pinkish-purple with brown tones. I think I’m going to start using this for my bridal clients.
Vintage Rose – It’s not a colour for everyone but it does look really good if you have purple hair! I used to wear it a bit when I had lilac hair…now that my hair is back to purple/pink/blue I am going to start wearing this shade again.
Strawberry – I really like this shade. I love how white my teeth look when I wear it.
Scarlett – is very similar to Jam. I can’t really tell much difference between the two, I think that Scarlett has a tiny bit more of a brown undertone than Jam and I find that it applies more evenly straight from the tube than Jam does.
Bordeaux – This shade seriously confuses/weirds me out ha ha. It’s the weirdest colour ever. It’s purple-y but has this weird golden olive in it and for some reason the gold showed up on the centre of my lips and the purple on the outside…it’s like ombre lips in a tube! This is one of my least favourite shades.
Rose Petal – J’adore! This is such a pretty colour! When I want to go nude on my lips I like to use Rose Petal instead of going with a concealer nude as it doesn’t wash out the face. I’ve used this on my brides a few times.
Shell – Another colour that I don’t like. I just don’t like yellow nudes in general. I think that they make the wearer look dead! I pretty much never use this shade but I keep it in my kit for those clients that want the concealer nude lip look.

I really like Arbonne lipsticks. They stay on quite well -especially if you use a lip liner -, super creamy and easy to apply. I like how pigmented they are. All the shades have a sheen to them, there are no mattes in this brand. My favourites are: Candy, Rose Petal, Satin and Coral Reef.
As for the lip glosses – I highly recommend them. They are super pigmented but not sticky like some glosses are and they smell yummy!
They are a tad pricey (in my opinion but I am a cheap skate 😛 ) but if you are a VIP client you get 20% off everything so that makes the products more affordable.
Being so creamy/shiny, the darker colours do bleed a bit if you don’t wear lip liner. The lighter shades don’t need lip liner and they don’t bleed.
That’s it from me today! I would love to hear what you guys think of these lipsticks – have you tried any? What’s your favourite colour? 🙂
Have a great weekend!!
