Time for another lipgloss swatch, to stay true to this blog’s name 🙂
Here’s Mango Buttercream from Silk Naturals which makes for a lovely summer colour. It’s a very wearable orange and a general crowd pleaser. Though I have to be honest and say I was looking for something… even bolder orange.

I don’t really consider my lips that pigmented, although they are not pale/white by any means. The top swatch has just 1 – 2 light coats and the bottom 3 – 5. It’s not quite a pigmented buttercream/lipgloss. While the texture is heavenly, the colour shows up a tad too bronze for my liking, given my underlying lip colour. Though I suppose if your lips are paler, Mango would be a much more vibrant orange on you. I’ve also passed this to my friend since it’s not quite a colour I personally fancy, sadly.
Quality: 9 (Silk Naturals’ lippies are HARD TO BEAT on price AND quality)
Packaging: 7.5 (standard black slimline. I actually prefer translucent tubes to gauge how much is left. also, with these slimline tubes, you can’t extend the lippie too much as they won’t retract back, so points off for that)
