I’ve been a lip gloss girl for years and though I’ve been trying to transition myself to lipstick for the last little while, I couldn’t say no to a sample of MarieNatie lip glosses from a PR company. I was sent two shades – a full size tube of Pink Lady – a pretty pink shade and a sample tube of Sexy Red (enough said). The line is Canadian-founded by two women – Marie and Natie and made with “all-natural” ingredients such as jojoba oil, jojoba gel, pomegranate oil, sunflower seed oil, Vitamin E and essential oil. In all, there are 12 shades.

I found the gloss to be similar to many products it competes with. It is lightweight, with just a hint of colour. In fact, you could say that there is barely anything there. Unless you’re wearing a darker shade, it’s difficult to know you’re wearing anything at all. And unlike a lot of like products, it isn’t sticky, heavily scented nor does it give off a very shiny, glossy look. It’s a great product if you don’t want the overly made-up look and works very well worn with just primer and/or BB Cream or even a bare face. One thing that is a drawback, however, was the metallic scent. It was very strong in the small sample container, and a little subtle in the regular sized version. But it could have just been that particular sample. Again, colour-wise, if you don’t like a deep tones or just want to feel like you’re wearing something, this is a product for you. However, this isn’t something you’d wear alone if you are looking for a more polished, made-up look.
