When it comes to my lip colors, there are like two or three shades that are my go-to and I don’t really venture beyond that. So when I was asked to participate in Shea Moisture’s campaign, “Summer is too Short to Wear Boring Lipstick“, I decided that it would be the perfect time to step outside of my comfort zone and experiment with some of their cool new shades for summer!
It’s so great to see that Shea Moisture has really extended their offerings of cosmetics…especially exciting for me since I’m always on the hunt for cosmetics with more natural ingredients!
Here’s what Shea Moisture sent over for me to play with:
(From left to right)
- SheaMoisture Lip Crayon in ‘Calixta’
- SheaMoisture Superfruit Sheer Tinted Lip Gloss in ‘Primrose‘? (label fell off so I wasn’t completely sure, but from checking on their website this seems to be it)
- SheaMoisture Superfruit Sheer Tinted Lip Gloss – ‘Starfruit’
- SheaMoisture Luscious Lipstick in ‘Maple’
- SheaMoisture Luscious Lipstick in ‘Pink Tulip’
- Prime & Define Long Wear Lip Pencil in ‘Dark’ (bottom)
One thing I noticed across all of the lip products is that they all went on smoothly and had a creamy consistency that was incredibly moisturizing! Nothing was sticky or tacky at all and the colors were really nice and rich! I have definitely found some new go-to faves!
‘Calixta’ was the perfect nude lip color for me!
Primrose (or what I think is Primrose) is a nice sheer pink gloss!
‘Starfruit’ was a really sheer gloss that had a hint of sparkle. I love that I can wear it by itself or layer it with another lip color.
‘Maple’ ended up being another great nude that is a little bit more pink than ‘Calixta’
‘Pink Tulip’ was a lovely bright pink color!
So I must confess, I have NEVER tried a dark lip before…and now I’m in love!! I paired their ‘Dark’ lip pencil with the ‘Starfruit’ gloss for a little shimmer and I almost didn’t want to take it off lol.
Overall, I honestly loved ALL of the lip products that were sent to me! I didn’t expect them all to work out for me, but surprisingly they did and I look forward to wearing them throughout the rest of the summer and beyond!
Have you tried any Shea Moisture lip products? Which colors are your faves?
