Silk Naturals Organic Lip Glosses and Lip Swatches
Many of you would probably know that I love MAC lipsticks, but I am also a fan of organic lip glosses. Silk Naturals has these Kisser Slickers that I've been using for over a year now, and I still love them. These act like my tinted lip balms that I wear alone or under my MAC lipsticks or lipglasses. These are staples in my makeup kit because I use these for touch-ups after a meal (it's also great that I don't need a mirror to apply these babies, especially the lighter ones). I love these so much, especially Birthday Suit - as you can see I bought four Birthday Suits in this order! I have just finished my fourth Birthday Suit lip gloss/lip balm. They are also very gentle on the lips because they contain organic ingredients - organic oils and sweet beeswax. I have sensitive lips, and if I apply something on my lips that they don't agree with, I develop nasty sores on the top and bottom edges of the lips - eww. These Kisser Slickers never do that to my lips - in fact these make the lips moisturized and supple the whole day.
I got two freebie eyeshadows with my order: a full size of Bright eyeshadow (my choice) and a throw-in of Elle shadow sample. I can't wait to try these.
Below are some of the products on the lips. They might look similar in the pics, but their nuances are apparent in real life. This is not the only texture and finish of Silk Naturals lippies. They have shimmers, mattes, wand lip glosses that have the finish of liquid lipsticks, and so on. I just prefer the texture and finish of the Kisser Slicker organic lipglosses because they are very creamy and pigmented - just the way I like my tinted lip balms to be.
Nectar is Silk Naturals' version of Clinique's Black Honey lipstick.
Bliss is not a lip gloss but a lipstick, and thus has a more pigmented, matte texture, but it has pretty good staying power.
