Arbonne Cosmetics Review

Hello loves :) One of my ex-work colleagues started selling Arbonne makeup so I decided to buy a few products to see if I liked them. Arbonne is similar to Avon in the sense that you need to buy the products through a representative; however I believe you can buy Arbonne products online without one. Depending on how much you buy, you can qualify to become a "preferred client" and get discounts. According to their website, Arbonne was founded in Switzerland in the mid 70's and is based on botanical principles (see here). I purchased a mascara and a lip gloss:

Arbonne "It's A Long Story Mascara" in Black, $40 CDN
The plastic brush is pretty ordinary with short bristles. 
I'm wearing two coats on the top lashes and one coat on the bottom lashes. 
This mascara did a great job separating my lashes and lengthening them :) 
Next up is the Arbonne Lip Polish in "Clear", $31 CDN 
The packaging is simple and chic. This lip gloss was VERY smooth and not at all sticky!!

Overall, I really enjoyed these products.  However, they are very expensive. In my opinion, why would I spend $40 on a mascara when I can find one that is just as good at a drugstore for under $10? I know some people do enjoy luxury cosmetics, but I prefer saving my money for clothes ;)

Have you ever tried Arbonne products?  Thanks for reading!! xo
