POWERFUL ACTION WITHOUT
Our formulations are made without parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances. Our products are never tested on animals.
The Verdict: If this goes on sale again, I would buy it again. I like the citrus scent, the smooth non-sticky texture, and the color is subtle and shimmery. It doesn't stay on very long and it's pretty light (hard to see), but I like it better than the majority of my glosses. If it was long-lasting and not quite so sheer, I would have given it 5 stars!

Pros:
Color 
Sparkles
Moisturizing
Citrus scent
Easy to apply
NOT tested on animals or sold in China!

Cons:
Expensive
Not long-lasting
Sheer

I'm actually very interested in cosmetics that are "green", natural and organic, but the only organic make-up typically sold in organic grocers are the almost hippy lip balms and a few non pigmented lip sticks or eyeshadows. Not high quality.
Online it looks like there are more than a few luxury options, but the majority of the glosses are very sheer and very expensive ($18-$26) I'm not paying $20 for a tiny bit of color you can't see with a few sparkles.
