Review: Purely You Minerals Lip Gloss in Dawn

I received a tube of this in my March Eco Emi box.




It’s a twist up tube of a balm-like colored lip gloss.




Dawn is  described as: “A natural brick pink lip color with a not too dark, not too light shade. Perfect for a natural look.”

It’s a rosy brown that is the perfect mix of rose and brown.

This is one swipe:



This is three swipes:



I like the smooth texture and moisturizing benefits of this. I think it’s more like a lip balm with soft shine, rather than a true lip gloss.

On my lips, it hardly provides coverage in terms of color. It gives the barest hint of color. I would not recommend this for anyone who wants a color product. It’s a good, natural lip product for natural makeup days or times when you don’t want to look like you’re wearing much makeup.


Pros: Natural ingredients, easy to use packaging, feels nice on the lips, moisturizing.
Cons: Not much color payoff on pigmented lips.

Grade: B+

    It looks really pretty on your skin! It might not make the paladin blush with its pigment, but I agree it’d be a great everyday ‘MLBB’ type staple.

    Doesn’t hurt to try! I, for one, can’t get enough of tinted lip balms. ^_^ This shade looks like a lovely MLBB shade on your arm swatch!
