Today I will be reviewing my new staple lip liner by Jane Iredale in the colour, Spice. Ever since my favourite lip liner by Victoria’s Secret in the colour “blushing nude” was discontinued, I have been on the hunt for an all natural alternative. Although Jane Iredale’s “Spice” lip liner isn’t an exact dupe, it is a pretty close match in that it is a wearable nude pink/brown shade. I have very fair skin and this lip liner is a perfect nude colour, although I couldn’t go any darker than this shade otherwise it would look unnatural on me. Being a natural mineral pigmented lip liner, I knew it wouldn’t last super long on my lips but I do tend to lick my lips a lot. However, it does last quite a while and is very highly pigmented. The only thing is that I wish this lip liner were retractable as sometimes when sharpening the pencil, it can break a little but not too badly. Jane Iredale is definitely one of my top mineral skincare makeup brands that I will always continue to use, and I would recommend you give this beautiful lip liner a try!
Description on website:
“The definition of smooth”
the look refined
the feel creamy
“Our Lip Pencils are soft enough to fill in your lips easily but durable enough to provide a long-lasting base to the color you layer over them.”
- Mineral pigment-based lip pencil with a soft formula that won’t tug at delicate skin.
- Made with conditioning oils and waxes.
- Soft formula lends itself to blending and being used as a lip base.
- Use a jane iredale sharpener to maintain a rounded point – other sharpeners will split the wood.

I would describe spice as a pink/brown warm nude colour, which leans more on the brown side. I would say spice is a universal nude lip liner shade that can work for a variety of different skin tones. There are also 12 other shades to choose from:
Pigmentation: You only need to use a light hand with this lip liner as it is very pigmented.
Packaging: As I said I do prefer retractable lip liners, however the packaging is very luxe and sturdy so it doesn’t bother me as much.
Texture/feel: This product is definitely creamy and glides on the lips smoothly, but it is also hard enough so that it lasts for some time on the lips. I feel that the consistency is good, however if you decide to fill in your entire lip, be sure to use a good lip balm beforehand.
Longevity: I have had this lip liner for quite a while and it has lasted me a very long time and I am not even halfway done! Because it is so pigmented and creamy, you don’t have to use a lot or push down too hard. The colour also lasts a good amount of time on the lips for a natural mineral lip liner.
Price: around AU $20.
Size: 0.04 oz
Recommend? Yes. For a natural mineral pigmented lip liner that is vegan and gluten free (for most shades, except this one), this is a high quality product that is definitely worth a try.
