We know that the toughest part of purchasing new beauty products is not being able to tell how they really feel and look in real life. And when it comes to lip gloss, we want to know the facts: What will the texture be? Will it smell fruity? To that end, we wanted to give you a sensory preview of noya’s Lip Gloss in Summertime Peach, which some of you will receive in your May boxes. With its on-trend pastel shade and all-natural formula, a few swipes will have you humming “Summer Breeze”.
Sight: Peachy Sheen
Not yet ready to embrace this season’s orange lipstick trend? Consider this peachy gloss your training wheels. Sheer enough to layer over your go-to lip color for a hint of shimmer, the coral-nude shade is also opaque enough to wear on its own.
Touch: Smooth (Not Sticky)
Our number one concern when it comes to lip gloss? Texture. (Blame it on too many gloppy formulas from middle school.) Thankfully, noya has infused its gloss with hydrating, plant-sourced ingredients like Vitamin E, Cocoa Butter, and Coconut Oil, which make it glide on smooth with its spongy-soft applicator wand.
Taste: Barely There
While we’d never encourage you to taste your lip products, if you happen to by accident with this one you’ll be totally fine. noya ensures that its glosses, lipsticks, and lip balms are all 100 percent natural, free of preservatives like parabens and sulfates—it’s even kosher.
Since noya uses all natural ingredients, this gloss is free of any Lip Smackers-esque artificially fruity scents.
Sound: Classic Pop
As any fan of Lil’ Mama knows, any lip gloss worth its weight in shimmer will open with a telltale “pop!”
The Sixth Sense: Pure Bliss
If there were a sixth sense, we’d vote for the warm and fuzzies, which is exactly what you’ll get when you learn that noya is partnered with The National Health Care for the Homeless Council. When you post a photo of your lip product on their Facebook page, they’ll donate a balm to the homeless. Get more info here.
