Hey Babes! I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July! Boom Boom Pow!
This week I picked a gloss that I had never heard of before, but I guess I am pretty behind the times when it comes to Arbonne. My friend had invited me to a home demonstration party – you know you’ve been to one (or a million) – and I was excited to see the line.
The demonstration and their marketing is pretty impressive, and for those of you who know the brand, have undoubtedly seen the saltine experiment. That night I decided to try their About Face Sheer Shine in Sterling, which intrigued me because of its silvery color, and at $16.00 the price was reasonable for a line that can be pretty pricey.
I had to wait for it to be delivered, which can be avoided if you order online. The packaging is attractive, although a bit reminiscent of Estée Lauder, and I couldn’t wait to try it out.
I really liked the shimmery sparkle it added to my lips, and really enhanced (at least I thought) my natural lip color. It is sheer, so don’t be afraid of the color in the container – you won’t look like the Tin Man, I promise!
Although I liked the color, I didn’t love how it felt on my lips. A little thin, a little gritty, and staying power could have been better. It did, however, look good on top of a red stick that I had. The other thing that I didn’t love was that it was only available in five colors on the website.
So, babes, packaging aside, I would have to give Arbonne’s About Face Sheer Shine two out of five smacks: a little glossable.
