Product Review: Virginia Olsen Organic Lip Gloss

I’m highly dependent on lipbalms and lipgloss. My lips are chronically dry, and if not taken cared of properly, they are far from being kissable.

Last month, I was so happy to know that organic lip products have finally set foot in the Philippines. Thanks to Virginia Olsen Minerals, a trusted natural cosmetics brand in US, organic lipsticks and lipglosses are now easily accessible to every Filipina woman.

Ingredients: Water, Chamomile Hydrosol*, Jojoba Seed Oil*, Cycomethicone, Aloe Gel*, Silica, Mica, Lecithin,  Jojoba Wax Esters, Rice Powder*, Pamitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Resveratrol, Avocado Oil*, Japanese Honeysuckle*, Vitamin E & C, Caprylyl Glycol, Grapefruit Seed Extract*.
NOTE: *Certified Organic

The consistency is thick but not *icky* sticky on the lips. Each tube smells only a whiff of vanilla, which adds to the organic feel of the product. Virginia Olsen Organic Lip Gloss has the pigmentation of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss and the moisturising effect of a balm all rolled into one. As an added bonus, shades 003 and 004 even slightly tints your lips!

001 – orangey nude with tiny specks of gold glitter
002 – corally pink gloss
003 – metallic hot pink dusted with light silver specks
004 – red hot gloss with gold glitter
005 – creamy mauve gloss
006 – *my favorite!* clear gloss with silver and gold dust

Since the arrival of these babies, I can’t help but use one shade every day. I’m really digging shades 006 and 004. These glossies are made from certified organic ingredients. And since it’s all natural, the shelf life for these glossies is only 12 months. Luckily, these come in cute 5ml tubes, just enough for your yearly disposal. Each tube is only Php250.00.
