Like most people, when I try a product for the first time, I typically don’t know a whole lot about it. Usually I pick it up because I heard something good about it from a trusted friend, or magazine, blog, etc. Or, in this case, I was generously given NUXE BAUME PRODIGIEUX LEVRES (Nutri-Protecting Lip Care) with SPF 15 in 02 Legendaire Pink, by BFF Beauty Founder, Jenni to try (Thank you, Jenni!). She owns this gloss in another shade, 01 Natural Crystal, and loves it! So naturally she wanted to share her beauty product discovery.
Below are a few pictures of Jenni’s Nuxe gloss shade in 01 Natural Crystal…
01 NATURAL CRYSTAL – “Leaves lips with an iridescent peach/pink-tinted highlight.”
As you just saw, Natural Crystal is a lovely & fresh-looking neutral peachy-beige shade with a beautiful soft shimmer. Alternatively, Legendaire Pink is a brighter and more vibrant shade, and so I was eager to test it out to see if this glittery-rose gloss would be versatile and easily transition from day to night.
02 LEGENDAIRE PINK – “Leaves Lips with a glittery subtle rose color.”
I consistently used it the first week or so in different ways. I would use it over my bare lips, or over a darker lipstick shade, or under a darker lipstick shade, or over a lip primer. I immediately fell in love with how versatile this lip-gloss is. For being what I consider a “gloss” It has quite a depth of color, and looks fantastic on bare lips, and it also looks amazing over or under lipsticks, and over primers. In each scenario it blends with the color or primer to create a beautiful plumped and moisturized look.
Of course when it comes to anything lips, the first order of concern is how it looks—which this product passed with flying colors, but the next test is how does it feel? As you may remember from a few of my previous reviews, my lips need a LOT of moisture, and I truly cannot wear any sort of lip product that does not also offer a lot of moisture. Therefore, I am always critical of how a lip product feels on my lips. NUXE BAUME PRODIGIEUX LEVRES delivered on this demand. It is extremely moisturizing, and the moisturizing effect also lasts for quite a while after applying, which I love.
The next test (and most important) a lip-gloss must pass in my book is; Is it also healthy for you? NUXE BAUME PRODIGIEUX LEVRES did not disappoint in this department either. I really did not know much about this product, or product line, other than, that it was French. I discovered that it was a French pharmacist who was fascinated by phytotherapy and aromatherapy who originally created Nuxe in 1957. Nuxe is derived from the French words nature and luxe (luxury). Which is really a perfect description of this product—natural and luxurious all at once.
The Nuxe brand prides itself in including natural ingredients, with no mineral oils or animal ingredients, and an exclusive and patented preservative system—thus it is also a preservative-free product.
NUXE BAUME PRODIGIEUX LEVRES is made with mango butter, sunflower and vitamin E, Shea Butter, and Sweet Almond Oil. Botanical Fill-in Spheres work to smooth and plump lips. Also, a few ‘bonus’ features are SPF 15 sunscreens and a yummy, fruity taste and smell! NUXE BAUME PRODIGIEUX LEVRES also comes in three other shades: Natural Crystal, Shimmering Chocolate and Rouge Charismatic.
I can happily report that I love NUXE BAUME PRODIGIEUX LEVRES. This product has passed all of my lip “tests,” and I also feel lucky to have learned about another integral company striving to create products that are both luxurious and healthy.
