Do you want to touch the mango?
(Apologies to those of you who aren’t SNL or Chris Kattan fans — or just have no clue what I’m referencing here.)
I decided to “touch the mango” when I sprang for a new lip balm from Alima Pure. If you haven’t caught on by now, I’m more into easy-to-apply lip color (glosses, lip stains, balms) than lipstick, and this skinny stick is no exception!
This is about as close to a “nude” lip as I come. I find that true nude lips tend to make me look washed out and zombie-like, so if I want to play with color on my eyes and keep my lips tame, I spring for a light coral/peach color that enhanced my pout while toning down my natural rosiness.
This is my first run with Alima Pure products, and I have to say that this lip balm is simply, pretty and true to its name: nourishing. I don’t have to wear a separate lip balm under it to prep my lip for color since this is, in essence, a tinted lip balm that is very hydrating.
Check out the ingredients:
Sweet Almond Oil, Castor Seed Oil, Organic Shea Butter Fruit, Organic Beeswax, Organic Safflower Seed Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic White Tea Extract, Organic Cocoa Seed Butter, Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil, Organic Jojoba Seed Oil, Organic Peppermint Essential Oil, Organic Pomegranate Extract, Tocopherol. May Contain [+/-]: Minca (Ci 77019), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499)
With all those moisturizing oils, you can see why Alima Pure Organic Nourishing Lip Balm lives up to its name!
I’m interested in trying some of the darker colors in the Nourishing Lip Balm collection to gauge just how rich the colors can be — played it safe with the mango this time.
What do you think of the natural coral/peach color of Alima Pure’s “Mango” (I guess it’s mango-colored?)? Ever tried any natural beauty products from Alima Pure? Tell me your thoughts in the comment section!
