Juice Beauty Liquid Lip Stain/Gloss Review

juice beauty liquid lip

Everyone is going crazy for lip stains, but if you’re looking for a green, nontoxic option look no further than Juice Beauty’s Photo Liquid Lip glosses. They’re organic, long-lasting and made with plant pigments and skin benefitting ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter. Their  holiday gift trio I tested includes bold colors – Gwyneth, Blythe and Apple – aptly named after Ms. Paltrow and the women in her family. They can be worn glossy, but I found them to be really stunning worn matte. Read on for the full review to see what I mean.

Product: Juice Beauty Photo Liquid Lip Holiday Trio

What is it: Gift set with three Photo Liquid Lip stains. Each have lip stain wearability with a thick, glossy finish. Can be worn shiny or blotted matte.

Best for: Long-lasting color blotted matte

Review: Upon first application, the liquid lips are messy, thick and goopy. The applicator deposits a lot of product, which makes it difficult to define the lips. I found that worn shiny and straight out of the bottle was not preferable.

BUT once I blotted the color, applied a second layer and then blotted again, I was thrilled with the results. What was left was the most natural glow of youth. Both the Gwyneth and Apple, when applied in this manner, create lips that will remind you of what your 16 year old lips looked like after a make-out session with your boyfriend behind the bleachers. You will look flushed, dewy, feminine and your lips soft and subtle. GORGEOUS is all I can say!  

Colors: Blythe – muted grey plum; Gwyneth – bright fuchsia; Apple – cherry red

Scent: Subtle wax and vegetable oil scent; not off putting, but not pleasant

Texture: Slippery, thick, goopy – once blotted, smooth and dry
