The team here at Colorescience has developed an exclusive formulation that will become the only mineral lip gloss you ever need. It's perfect to give you a cute and natural lip shine that is not as overpowering as using lipstick, and is appropriate to wear in all kinds of situations that probably aren't appropriate for wearing a full coloured lipstick.
Our mineral lip gloss gives you the instant transformation that you want in a makeup product, but it also gives you protection from the sun which is a great long-term benefit when thinking about the future. So, let's talk about why you need SPF in your lip shine products.
Mineral Lip gloss with SPF is basically like sunscreen for your lips. It protects you from harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun so that your lips stay luscious and youthful for longer compared to similar products. The lip gloss available here at Colorescience is rated SPF 35, which means you get the same protection on your lips as your skin gets from using a broad spectrum SPF 35 sunscreen. Obviously, most people neglect to put sunscreen on their lips, for a variety of reasons, but now you can still be protected from the sun and sport a healthy lip shine at the same time.
This protection from the sun comes from using zinc oxide as an active ingredient in our lip gloss set of shades. Zinc oxide is a natural mineral, and it is so gentle that even those with sensitive skin can use it, so you don't need to worry about it. This mineral also provides our lip gloss with better water resistance than many competing products, which is another great benefit for those who don't want to touch up their lips every half an hour.
We're all about creating a more natural look here at Colorescience, so we didn't go crazy making all kinds of greens and purples that would have a very limited use. Instead, we are focusing on natural shades that will not distract or stand out too much, making them perfect for daily use no matter whether it's a day at the beach or working in the office.
As you will see on the lip shine page itself before you order, currently there are five colours to choose from. These shades are pink, rose, champagne, coral, and clear. We may start to add more shades at a later time, but for now we think these subtle colours are perfect for creating the kind of natural look our customers want.
Now that you know a bit more about our mission and what our mineral lip gloss is all about, the only real way to see the benefits for yourself is to try it. If you don't like it, and you would rather not protect your smile from sun damage, then you can go back to your old routine any time you like. We think you'll love it as much as we do.
