As you probably know by now, I've developed quite the love affair with Arbonne, simply because every single product that I've put to the test has been amazing. So today I'm going to talk a little more about the Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipsticks… 

The Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipstick is a moisturising long-wearing lipstick that contains among others botanicals such as edelweiss plant to soothe and moisturise dehydrated lips, and mix of watermelon fruit, lentil and apple extracts to give the lips a volumising effect.

I've put four different shades of red to the test; 

  • Lotus
  • Flora
  • Aster
  • Currant

It is a little difficult to describe these shades, because a few of them are somewhat similar, only slightly darker/lighter, but I’ll give it a shot…

The shade Lotus is the lightest shade in the lineup, and it is a slightly pinkish shaded mauve, while the shade Flora is also a mauve shade, only it is slightly darker and has a slightly berry tone. Then there's the Aster, which is in the same kind of shade, but is slightly darker again a slightly purple-ish berry tone. Finally, the Currant shade stands out a little is this line up, as it is a brighter red shade. 

L-R: Lotus, Flora, Aster, Currant

Common for all shades is that they are extremely pigmented, and just one swipe gives you full colour payoff, with a nice satin-glossy finish and they really does feel lovely and soft on the lips.

Because they are so pigmented, it also means that wear is slightly longer than most other moisturising formulas, and I manage to get about 4-5 hours wear, without eating or drinking - as the lipsticks do transfer onto glasses and mugs and hence when you drink.

The shades do fade nice and evenly, and even when they are just about gone, they still leave behind a touch of stain on the lips, and all along leaves the lips feeling soft and nourished.

I can be a little picky with the lipstick shades I like to wear, but I am absolutely loving all of these shades, and finding it hard to pick a favourite. And there are a massive 16 shades in the range, so there is a shade for every taste and occasion too.

My only negative is that these lipsticks are only available online, so you cannot just go to a shop and swatch them on your hand before buying, which I can imagine might be a deterrent for many - but trust me, these lipsticks are so beautiful to wear that you just won't be disappointed!
