I recently got my hands on E.L.F.’s Mineral Lip Gloss in Au Naturale ($3). What I really love about this lip gloss is it is said to be 100% mineral based with no parabens, preservatives, or chemical dyes. Instead, they have moisturizing coconut oil and antioxidant protection from castor seed oil. It also contains vitamins A (in the form of anti-wrinkling retinol) and E plus UV blocking titanium dioxide. Additionally, it has hydrogenated polyisobutene, which is an excellent emollient that also prevents water loss.

The color is a pretty sheer tint. This one specifically (Au Naturale) has a little shimmer in it too which is spring/summer perfect. I have to reapply ever few hours since it doesn’t have the best staying power, but for $3 it’s a bargain you won’t have to feel guilty about.

E.l.f. mineral glosses are available at eyeslipsface.com.
