Review: Arbonne #1

Thursday, March 20, 2014
I was contacted last year about reviewing some products from Arbonne and Arbonne isn't a brand that I had heard of before but after a browse on their site I said yes, even though these products/samples were sent for review it doesn't change my opinion of the brand/products, for more information on my disclaimer, click here

Firstly, I have the *Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation in the shade 'Porcelain' (£31) which I wouldn't really describe as 'Porcelain' but it does match my pale skin well, I think it is the lightest shade. I have a sample of it (about 1/3 of a bottle) and I have been using it on and off for almost two weeks and I have to say, it is a really nice foundation. I have dry and sensitive skin so finding a good foundation can be really difficult but this one has full/medium coverage and when applied on top of moisturiser and primer it doesn't emphasise dryness. It blends really well, it doesn't irritate my skin and it covers most of what I want to cover - you only need the tiniest amount otherwise it can look a bit caky. ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

I also have the *full size blusher in the shade 'Ballet' (£20) and if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I do not wear blusher. It is one of the very few makeup items that I never really use (along with tan and fake lashes). Although I have used this to review and it is such a pretty natural pink shade - the name 'ballet' is definitely accurate. The blush applies and blends well, it is not super pigmented so you don't have to worry about looking like a clown! ★★★★☆, 4/5.

The last product I have to review in this post is the *Lip Polish in 'Brown Sugar' (£18) - now before opening the sachet I expected it to be a brown sugar lip scrub (clearly I didn't read the leaflets for this sample) so I was disappointed to see it was a lip gloss in a browny shade. I tried it and it is actually really nice, on my lips it looks like a rosy pink, brown shade (because of my natural lip colour) and it makes my lips looks fuller and glossy. It does feel a little bit sticky and heavy on the lips but it lasted fairly well and it was very smooth on the lips. ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

Overall, I am impressed with the products I have tried and I am definitely interested in more Arbonne cosmetics such as their eyeshadows, CC cream and fragrances too. I will have another post reviewing the other samples I received over the next week or so - to see more Arbonne products, click here. Have you tried Arbonne products before? 


  1. The formula of the blush looks lovely! Really love the look of the lipgloss as well, I love lip products.
