The Organic Face Addiction Lip Gloss Review + Giveaway

Addiction Lip Gloss

Addiction Lip Gloss

I have an addiction.. of sorts. I own a lot of lip gloss. In fact, I’ve got an entire drawer of it in my bathroom. There’s a number of tubes in my purse, and I know there are even more on the table by the drawer. They’re from all sorts of brands, from the drug store to boutique brands like The Organic Face to gloss from Victoria’s Secret. When it comes to colors, I’ve got sparkly clear, translucent pink, more vibrant tones like my own lips, bold reds and all sorts of shades in between.

I can now say that I own an organic lip gloss, Addiction lip gloss from the Organic Face in dusty rose. This is my first organic lip product as far as I know, but it’s just one of a few of the organic products offered by this company. The Organic Face offers bronzer, foundation, mascara and eye shadow. You can even purchase makeup brushes and an air brush system from the company!

The lip gloss formula avoids problematic ingredients such as:

  • Parabens
  • Talc
  • Gluten
  • Bismuth
  • Perfume

So what was my experience like? The aptly-named Addiction lip gloss is described like this on the site:

The Organic Face organic lip gloss is a super shiny formula infused with antioxidant-rich botanical extracts, essential oils and pigments. Organic Lip Gloss glides on effortlessly, and leaves lips feeling moist and hydrated for hours without fading. Long lasting Lip gloss is made with all natural ingredients.

The texture was good. It’s smooth and silky without being overly sticky. I also really like the softly sweet smell! I just put some on for the sake of this review, and I can’t stop smelling my lips.

My lips, by the way, are definitely shiny. I think this has a lot to do with the shimmer of gloss as opposed to the texture. The Dusty Rose shade isn’t as sheer as some glosses I have, which is great if you like more obvious glosses. It’s a very light and very metallic sheen. It definitely seems more golden than pink or dusty on my lips. I;m not really a big fan of metallic on my own lips, sadly. I think this particular shade would be better suited toward young women and teens than someone who is mature, too.

Had I purchased this, I would have found actual swatches on the website to be more helpful than simply product images because photographs aren’t always true to life, and screens can vary the way color appears, too. In the tube, the lip gloss appears to be a light, glittery pink, too. I think “dusty” would be a bit darker and less saturated. In my own photos, it looks much pinker than it does to my eyes.

I did notice that this appeared different depending on the light and even my makeup. I bright, natural light, the metallic highlights tend to be more obvious, but it looks darker and more pink indoors.

As you can see from my photo, the box the tube comes in is more than twice as wide as the tube. I wouldn’t mind if it were more form-fitting to save material, but it can be recycled. The tube itself is plastic. This might feel cheaper to some, but I like that I don’t need to worry about it breaking. Been there. Ugh!
