Product Review: 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Gloss

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: 100% Pure
Name: Fruit Pigmented Lip Gloss
Size: 0.24 oz / 7 ml
Price: $16 CAD

Shade Tried: Pomegranate Wine

What it says on the product site:
The first and only cosmetics colored from antioxidant rich fruit and vegetable pigments. While other color cosmetics are colored with either synthetic dyes or minerals, only 100% Pure color cosmetics are colored with fruit & vegetable pigments (patents pending)! All the antioxidants and vitamins in fruits are in the actual color, so you will be applying all the healthy nutrients of the fruits directly on your skin! 100% Natural lip glosses made with Vitamin E from organic rice bran and beautiful colors from fruit pigments. Vitamin E is a powerful anti-aging antioxidant that drenches your lips with moisture and deeply softens.

What intrigued me most about this lip product was that the company said all the ingredients were completely natural. Check out the ingredients list for this lip gloss - everything can be traced back to something natural:

Ingredients: Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Pigmented Extracts of: Punica Granatum (Pomegranate), Wine (Wine), Prunus Serotina (Cherry) Fruit, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit, Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa Bean) and Prunus Domestica (Plum) Fruit, Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Cera Alba (Beeswax), Fragaria Vesca Fruit Extract (Strawberry Flavor)

To Purr About:
- slanted sponge applicator tip makes applying gloss easy
- lovely strawberry scent
- lovely sheer red colour
- lots of shine

Claws Out:
- a touch sticky
- colour is a little thin for those looking for a full coverage gloss

Final Comments:
As many of my readers know, I'm obsessed with lip products and have over 100 different lipsticks/lip glosses going at any one time. But this time - I'm in love.

Not only is this a stunning shade of sheer red, the gloss leaves a lovely shine on lips. It falls somewhere in the mid-range of stickiness - it's a little sticky but not super-sticky. It has a sweet (but not too sweet)

I also love that the ingredients list is so natural. I know lots of people (including my reviewers Suziesaurus and ShellySuperstar) who prefer more natural ingredients in their beauty products. Everything is fruit-based and yet I can't believe the super-pop of colour these fruits leave in the lip gloss.

For $16 CAD, it's not the most affordable lip gloss on the market, but I would definitely prefer spending my money on this gloss any day.

I really love that it's more natural than a lot of other products! Makeup is the one area where I haven't been able to cut most of the preservatives and stuff out of!
