Jane Iredale: PureMoist LipColour Review



I ordered this lipstick online and chose this shade called Nicole based solely on visuals of the lipstick on various websites: Jane Iredale's and a few online retailers. I couldn't find any colour descriptions! The Jane Iredale PureMoist LipColour is available in 26 shades, so you can imagine how long I had to spend online to make this one decision on the colour.

When I received it, I thought it looked like my PUPA Diva's Rouge lipstick in Euphoria Red. I really didn't need a repeat.


Thankfully, I was mistaken. The two shades may look similar at first glance - coral tomoato-ey red - but the one from PUPA's is perkier and opaque and Jane Iredale PureMoist LipColour in Nicole is a semi-sheer coral red. It's definitely not overpowering. It's what I would call a sweet shade, the kind that imparts just enough colour to give you a healthy look. Viewed upclose, this lipstick has fine golden specks of shimmer which I didn't think were conspicuous when applied on the lips.


According to Jane Iredale

Ingredients
Castor Seed Oil, Isopropyl Jojobate, Zinc Oxide (CI 77947), Jojoba Esters, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax, Beeswax, Grape Seed Extract, Peppermint Leaf Extract, Vanillin, Borage Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Bisabolol.
May Contain: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77489, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Carmine (CI 75470), Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850)(Aka 202)

Packaging
The lipstick comes in the usual Jane Iredale gold packaging. It certainly looks classy.


Scent
Pleasant and vanillic. I detect no minty scent in this one.

SPF
It has natural sunscreen - zinc oxide. It's a lipstick with SPF 18. Good, no?

Moisturising
It applies like a good lipbalm and yes, it is as moisturising as a lipbalm. If you've read enough of my posts, you'd know that I have ridiculously dry lips and I usually need to use a lipbalm before applying lipstick. There have been a few exceptions, I've discovered, such as NARS Dolce Vita. With Nicole, it's direct application on bare lips and I'm good to go. It lasts about as long as any good lipbalm.


Price
USD20.00 for 3.4g / 0.12oz. With the help of a friend in the UK, I bought mine from Musthave. Price: £14.00.

Final Words
It's a moisturising lipstick with SPF. I love it! Give the PureMoist LipColour a shot if you have the chance. It would be a lot easier to choose a shade if you have a beauty salon near you which sells Jane Iredale products. Choosing a shade online is a pain.

Lovely shade. 26 shades....I can imagine it's hard to pick one.

The best part is of course the name of shade....priceless

Take care, Nicole x

Thanks! :)

@KTee
Thanks so much, KTee! This is a very flattering shade and I think would look good against many skin tones. :)

@Nicole
Hey, the lovely name didn't escape my notice. :D I did think you'd be pleased to see this post on your namesake. Heh heh! It's soooo cool to have a lipstick named after you! :)

Very informative - Thanks.
The other shade that looks very similar to Nicole is their Carrie shade(at-least on the webpages).

If you have tried that one too, I'd love to have your input.

Thx.

Hi! Thank you for your kind words. I haven't got Carrie now, I'm afraid. I'll keep this shade in mind the next time I go shopping for Jane Iredale products. If I get hold of it, I'll do a post on it. :)
