Arbonne Cosmetics Will Have Your Lips Smoothed & Glossed Over In The Most Immaculate Neutral Vegan-Friendly Shades


If you’re reading this post, you’re either very familiar with Arbonne the beauty brand, or have absolutely no idea about its makeup offerings at all. After surveying a few of my gal-pals I noticed this very black and white reaction when I mentioned the brand!

If you’re the former, let me fill you in on a few fast facts.

Arbonne Cosmetics was first developed in Switzerland in 1975. It was later brought to life in the U.S of A  in the 1980s and now has a cult following throughout the world thanks to the brands passionate independent consultants. You might have even come across a few of the consultants Instagram pages during some late night scrolling.

I just popped in my postcode and a whole list of contacts came up! Impressive!

Another aspect of Arbonne that I love is that each product is dermalogically tested and hypoallergenic (meaning no surprise rashes or redness!), their products are vegan friendly and formulated without gluten or parabens! Lots of ticks there.

I’ve recently given Arbonne’s new Glossed Over lip glosses and Smoothed Over lipsticks a whirl and I’ve been really happy with them. So much hydration and plenty of pigmented shades to choose from!

I also was pleasantly surprised to read that both ranges feature fruit extracts for hydration as well as peptides for smoother, plumper kiss-me lips. The neutral earthy shades were also so easy to wear day-to-day as they worked back well with most of my outfits and eyeshadow palettes. Winning!

See below for swatches and shop the range online (or contact a consultant, up to you!).

Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipsticks


Top, left to right: Current, Aster & Flora.

Colours: Available in 16 shades – Magnolia, Willow, Currant, Poppy, Terra, Guava, Flora, Dahlia, Rose, Peony, Lotus, Camellia, Iris, Hibiscus, Aster, Dream

Key Ingredients: A delicious blend of watermelon, lentil and apple fruit extracts seals lips with immediate and longterm moisture while peptides work to impart a plumping effect, for softer-looking lips that are full and luscious. The moisturising combination of Hyaluronic Acid, Edelweiss Plant Extract and Polymers conditions lips with a boost of essential hydration, to help soothe and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Top to bottom: Aster, Flora & Current.

Longevity: Because these are moisturising lipsticks don’t expect them to stay put on your lips for 8+ hours. You will get amazing pigment payoff but the actual lipstick itself can be transferred easily onto glasses and it will diminish when eating food or drinking. This doesn’t bother me too much because all of the amazing ingredients really do help to protect my lips and keep them looking younger. I’m more than happy to re-apply a few coats during the day.

Packaging: Snap-shut canister.

Shop Them: Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipsticks in Aster, Flora & Current, $41

Arbonne Glossed Over Lip Glosses


Top to bottom: Mallow, Anise & Cosmos.

Colours: Available in 10 shades – Calla, Hazel, Mimosa, Hyacinth, Mallow, Larkspur, Linden, Cosmos, Primrose and Anise.

Key Ingredients: A nourishing concoction of Edelweiss Plant Extract, Peptides and luxurious Passion Fruit Oil drenches lips in hydration and intensely moisturises for a smooth-looking, plumped-up pucker.


Top to bottom: Cosmos, Mallow & Anise.

Longevity: Again, this is a hydrating lipgloss so you will need to re-apply extra coats throughout the day to top up your colour as these weren’t made to be long wear.

Applicator: Small in-built bristled brush applicator to apply colour onto your pout the way you would with a makeup brush.

Shop Them: Arbonne Glossed Over Lip Glosses in Cosmos, Mallow & Anise, $37.
