I’ve made some big strides in Operation Clean Up My Makeup Drawer, and there’s no hiding it any longer- I am officially in love with Beautycounter. The company’s mission has completely drawn me in, and I’m passionate about spreading the word about the importance of using safe cosmetics. Currently, I’m using the brand’s eye shadow, blush, bronzer, lip sheers, lip conditioning balm, shampoo and conditioner, kids’ shampoo and conditioner (SO GOOD!), and multiple skin care items. (You know, uh…just a few things.) The products score a 2 or below on EWG’s Skin Deep website, and they are all fantastic. The color collection is my current obsession, and I received so many emails and questions about it, that I decided to answer them on the blog.
Today I’m talking Lip Sheers. These lipsticks are creamy, lightweight, completely buildable, and the shades are very flattering for everyday. (Although, Beautycounter, I’m making a plea to you…please add some vibrant colors to the mix! I would love to see a classic red and punchy fuchsia.) The overall look is creamy and sheer, but if you are wanting to add some shine, Beautycounter makes a product called Lip Shine that you can apply on top for a more glossy look.
Isn’t the packaging lovely?
So, here are what the colors look like on. I wore each shade on its own and then added the Lip Shine on top.
Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Nude
Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Petal
Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Twig
Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Coral
Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Rose
Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Currant
Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Raisin
Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Plum
What do you think? Pretty colors, right? I seem to gravitate towards Petal, Twig, Rose and Plum. I think you should give ‘em a try.
Here’s the deal – if you are considering buying some of the lip sheers and/or other products, definitely check out the Band of Beauty Member program. It’s only $25/year, and you get some great perks. However, the best part is that $15 of that $25 goes to your choice of one of these 3 non-profits – Environmental Working Group, Healthy Child Healthy World, or the Breast Cancer Fund. Beautycounter is totally about taking action and making change, so the member program is totally a win-win. (Plus, trust me, you will be re-ordering once you start using the skin care and hair products. The kids’ line is the BEST – I can’t stop smelling my kids’ heads.)
Beautycounter is sold here, and has a 30-day money-back guarantee. So if the products don’t work for you, just ship ‘em back. Questions? Shoot! Interested in joining the movement and becoming a consultant? Not gonna lie…reeeaaally good discounts.) Email me or read about it here. Also, let me know if any other product tutorials or reviews would be helpful in the future.
