Mineral lip colors are all the rage lately. I had the chance to try J Lynne Cosmetics’ mineral Gloss FX. My colors to test were Rachel (a shimmery mauve) and Julianne (a medium wearable pink with shimmer).
These mineral lipglosses are very thick in the tube. However the formula does seem to melt once on your lips. The shine hangs in there for hours. I would consider them a cross between lip gloss and lipstick. The glosses are say they vegan friendly (see my notes below) and not tested on animals.
The glosses do contain Lanolin and glycerin, so be careful for breakouts around your mouth. On that note, I’m not sure about the Vegan friendly statement since lanolin is derived from sheep’s wool and they also contain Beeswax (which most vegans also avoid). Just some food for thought.
Find them at JLynneCosmetics.com – 14 shades to choose from! A full size tube is $12, or get the sample sizes for $2. I’d recommend the sample sets where you get a whole slew of colors to play with.
