Jane Iredale Lip Definer in Nude

Hello Beauties!

Today I will be reviewing the Jane Iredale Lip Definer in the shade Nude. I am such a fan of Jane Iredale cosmetics and already use their lip definer in Spice (which is the exact shade of my lips). I was looking for a 90s brown Cindy Crawford lip liner look, and the lip pencil in nude is the perfect shade for that! This is the darkest shade I can go for me as I am very fair and Nude is about 2 shades darker than my natural lip colour. I would highly recommend this product as it’s not only packed with quality ingredients to nourish your lips, but it also performs incredibly well. I would recommend the shade Spice as your first purchase as I think it’s a more universal shade.

The give you that sexy 90s pout, add a lighter pink nude in the centre of the lips. I find that I have to use a very light hand with this as it’s very dark and pigmented for my skin tone.

There aren’t any official descriptions of the shades online, however I would describe Spice as a pink nude, whereas Nude is strictly a brown nude. Spice would suit a lot more skin tones than nude would, as it is a more universal shade.

You can definitely see in the swatches above that Spice has more of a pink undertone.

Description on Website:

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.

I would say these lip pencils are more on the stiff side than creamy. They do glide on easily, however there isn’t much slip to them which I prefer as it means it will last a long time.

Details:

  • 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.

Ingredients: Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Silica, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Copernicia Cerifera Cera, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate. [+/- (May Contain) Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742), Mica, Carmine (Ci 75470)].

*All shades are wheat free. The shade Nude is vegan, however Spice contains carmine.

Shades: 12 shades

Packaging: I love the sleek packaging, however I would prefer a twist up lip pencil as I’m lazy when it comes to sharpening.

Scent: There’s no particular scent besides the woody scent of the lip pencil.

Longevity: Because the formula is not super creamy, I find this lasts quite a while on my lips. However, don’t expect it to last all day.

Feel/Look: Definitely more on the stiff, matte side than creamy.

Size: 0.04 oz

Rating: 5/5

Ilia Beauty “Pink Kashmir” Lipstick Review

Hello Beauties!

Today I will be reviewing the gorgeous certified organic lipstick from Ilia Beauty in the colour Pink Kashmir (limited edition). I decided to invest more in natural, certified organic lipsticks because whatever you put on your lips, you eventually end up ingesting. With all the chemicals that are contained within mainstream lipsticks, women ingest around 7 pounds of lipstick a year, which is very alarming! This is the second brand of certified organic lipstick I have yet tried, and I must say I am blown away by the quality. Not only are the ingredients of the highest quality, but it also performs as well, if not better than most mainstream lipsticks. What I love about Ilia beauty as a brand, is that they seamlessly blend organic with modern fashion, catering to the everyday, stylish woman.

Founder of Ilia beauty, Sasha Plavsic’s philosophy: 

“Somebody recently said to me, that because it’s organic it’s good for you, and it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t work as well as the mainstream stuff – I intend to change their mind.”

Description on Website:

“Inspired by the colours of India and Pakistan, Pink Kashmir is ILIA’s standout shade for spring and summer.

ILIA Lipstick combines organic ingredients with contemporary colours that can be layered to create your own personalised shade.”

Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil*, Jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis) Seed Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Beeswax (Cera Alba)*, Triisostearyl Citrate, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*, Manihot Esculenta (Tapioca) Starch*, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina (Rose Hip) Fruit Oil, Sage (Salvia Officinalis) Leaf Extract, Tocopherol.

Colour: This colour is very vibrant, but not too neon on the lips. It’s a very cool toned pink, which unfortunately doesn’t go with my fair skin colour. With one swipe, the colour is very pigmented and perfect for the spring and summer.

Texture/Feel: This is by far the best texture of any organic lipstick I have yet to try (beside Bite Beauty). It is very creamy and conditioning to the lips. It never dries them out, yet sets to a nice semi-matte.

Size: 3.5 g

Price: AUD $34.00. Although this lipstick is quite pricey, it will last you forever! It’s so pigmented and you can’t beat the high quality ingredients contained within it.

Packaging: I love the aluminium packaging! It’s very sleek, modern, and high quality.

Longevity: Not only is there a generous amount of product, there is so much pigmentation, that this lipstick will last you forever. It also lasts quite a long time on my lips as it dries to a semi-matte. I would say it lasts for me around 6-7 hours, considering I lick my lips a lot!

Recommend? Definitely! Although I’m not a fan of the colour on me, the actual formulation is quite nice.

Rating: 3/5

Where to Buy: http://iamnaturalstore.com.au. Unfortunately this shade is limited edition and sold out at the moment! However you can keep looking back on the website or search for it on the Ilia Beauty website.
