Product Review: Kelly Teegarden Organics Lip Gloss

Today I am pleased to bring you another product from Kelly Teegarden Organics, their Lip Gloss!  I have said before that I love Kelly's products and everything her company stands for but I am a lip gloss snob!  I am very picky when it comes to lip gloss and I have quite a collection.  I have complaints about most lip glosses whether it be the color just isn't right or my number one complaint, the formula is too sticky.  You know what I mean?  You put on your lip gloss and within a few minutes your lips feel like a sticky mess?  I can't tell you how many times that has happened to me!  Did Kelly Teegarden Organics' Lip Gloss live up to my high standards?  Read on to find out!

What They Say:  "Lead, arsenic, hormone disruptors… in lip gloss?  I was shocked when I found out about the dozens of toxicchemicals found in beauty products. That’s why I created KTO lip gloss. Not only are these glosses chemical free, lead free and totally safe, but they are hydrating, nourishingand look beautiful too.  Formulated to protect, all natural,creamy texture, subtly minty and light and mirror on cap."

My Impression:  When I first got these in the mail the very first thing I noticed about them is the mirror on the side.

I love that these have their own mirror on the side!  No need to carry an extra mirror to apply lip gloss.  The mirror is just the right size too!

The next thing I noticed about these adorable glosses is that they have...ready for this...a built in light!

The picture is slightly blurry because the only way I could capture the light was to turn off the flash.  I mean, how cool is this?  I could apply my lip gloss in total darkness!  I mean, I'm sure that's not what Kelly intended when she put the light in there but the point is, if I so choose, I could put my lip gloss on in total darkness...right?  At first I wasn't exactly sure why there was a light on there.  I mean, why would I need a light on my lip gloss?  Then, while on the bus headed home from work one day I took out my lip gloss, used the mirror to apply, and I figured out exactly why that little light is helpful.  The light shines directly onto your lips to help you apply your gloss perfectly, even in low light situations, like the bus.

So, I thought the mirror was awesome, and the light even more awesome, but what did I think of the gloss itself?  I am pleased to tell you that this is by far the best lip gloss I have ever used!  Seriously, I'm not just saying that, I actually mean it.  I don't have any of the complaints that I normally have with lip gloss.  The color pigmentation is perfect, it is just the right amount of "sheerness" (I think I just made up another word!) and most importantly- it is NOT sticky!  This stuff feels so nice on my lips and it smells really good too!  It kind of has a very light minty smell to it.

The colors I received were Jen and Amber.  Perfect for my skin tone and very light and sheer, leaning more towards brown and gold.

I promise, one day I will be brave enough to do lip swatches. :)
I would definitely recommend these glosses if you are looking for an amazing lip gloss made with natural and safe ingredients.  The lip gloss sells for $25.00 and you can pick them up here.  I think the price is right on target for a good quality lip gloss and compares with other brands such as Stila lip gloss which retails for about $22.00.

Would you consider trying these lip glosses?  Leave me a comment and tell me why or why not?  If you have tried them let me know what you think.  Thanks for reading!
