Today, I am going to show you the new Gucci Westman Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm. However, first a quick word about makeup artist Gucci Westman concerning makeup. Gucci Westman prefers “French Girl Beauty” over the instagram “made up” makeup. Gucci received her makeup training in France. She learned that French girls, first and foremost, just want to look like themselves. Although , they want to look like better versions of themselves. As a result Gucci Westman, created her own makeup line. In fact, Gucci is a makeup artist that creates “French Girl Beauty” makeup looks. Furthermore, Gucci’s own makeup brand amplifies the French Girl Beauty in all of us. In other words, Gucci’s makeup helps us create better versions of ourselves !
I am a huge fan of Gucci’s Westman Atelier Makeup! One reason is the packaging. For one thing, I love all of her Atelier Sticks. First, the weighty sticks are magnetized. Even the products costs $38 hooked on the Gucci Westman Atelier Makeup is her squeaky clean formulas. Above all Gucci formulas are made using clean ingredients. Some products in the Westman Atelier Collection include: Gucci Westman Atelier Sticks , GW Atelier Highlighter and Bronzer., Atelier Eyeshadow Pods, Lip Suede Compact, and the Eye Love You Mascara.
Finally, the New Gucci Westman Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm is an innovative gel-oil hybrid formula. Also, as the name states, the ingredients in the formula are supposedly squeaky clean. Is this a gimmick to set her liquid lip balm apart from the multitude of other lip glosses on the market today? Read on to find out more.
But first, you can find the Gucci Westman Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm on the Violet Grey Website, Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman , Goop, Net a Porter, and the Gucci Westman Atelier Website. Also, The Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm ( .21 fl. oz. / 6.5 mL) costs $38.
The Gucci Westman Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm Packaging
First, the Lip Balm comes in the signature pink with black trim, Westman Atelier Box. Next, the lip balm comes wrapped inside a black drawstring bag. Then, the lip balm bottle is a sleek black matte, with a glossy black lid. Even more, the lid doubles as a handle for the applicator. But, I’m getting ahead of myself. On the black matte body of the tube, is a slim window.
Therefore, you can peek inside the bottle, and see the color of the shade. On the other side of the tube, Westman Atelier is written in glossy black.
Furthermore, the lid unscrews to become the handle of the custom-shaped paddle applicator. Also, the flocked paddle is slightly wider at the top.
The Formula For The Gucci Westman Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm
First, the formula’s call-out ingredients include jojoba oil, almond oil and argan oil. As a result, the oils provide a soft, supple texture, and a formula that is ultra-hydrating. I can attest to the fact that the lip balm feels pillowy-soft. Even more, it has a luxurious sheen. Remember, this balm is an innovative gel-oil formula. Additionally, the formula includes Shea Butter to soothe and nourish your lips. Tocopherol ( Vitamin E) gives your lips antioxidant protection. Also, the formula includes sheer, naturally derived pigments. In other words, the Lip Balm is no ordinary lip balm. The lip balm is a lip treatment with sheer-pigments.
Don’t forget the squeaky clean ingredients. Do you consider Carmine squeaky clean? First, I read the list of ingredients. According to the list, some of the lip balm shades may include Carmin. The definition of Carmine is: a “natural pigment derived from the dried female insect Coccus cacti (cochineal).” In fact, many vegans and caring consumers choose to avoid cosmetics and food products containing an ingredient called carmine because it is derived from crushed bodies of insects. Yes, you read that right. The red dye or food coloring is obtained from cochineal insects and it takes about 70,000 insects to produce a pound of dye.
The Shades For The Gucci Westman Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm
To begin with, the Squeaky Clean LIquid Lip Balm comes in six shades. Also, the shades range from soft pinks to nudes, and deeper reds, to berries. I purchased three of the shades. First, Garcon, a just bitten lips shade, has a high shine finish. Second, Pipsqueak, a bright brick shade, has a high shine finish. Third, Ma Puce, a raspberry lolly shade, has a high shine finish.
My Final Thoughts On The Gucci Westman Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm…..
First, the packaging tube is sleek, weighty, and perfect for on the go liquid color! Second, I love that the lip balm a soft supple texture, and an ultra-hydrating formula. I other words, it feels really comfortable on your lips. In fact, I like everything about it EXCEPT for the “may contain Carmine” in the ingredients. Are smashed bugs squeaky clean? Maybe they should have left out the squeaky clean?!? Otherwise, the lip balm is everything you’d want in a lip balm without the bugs.
Are you o.k. with the the emphasis of squeaky clean ingredients in the name of this Lip Balm? Gucci Westman is misleading us with the “squeaky clean”. However, what is your definition of squeaky clean? My definition of squeaky clean ingredients doesn’t include smashed female bugs. Does Yours? I just don’t feel that the makeup industry should try to fool us. We are smarter than that! The Lip Balm is a good product. So, sell it for what it is! Don’t sell it for what it is not!
