Silk Naturals Haul / Lip Product Swatches

Product : Silk Naturals Lipgloss / Lipstick
Where to Buy : http://www.silknaturals.com/
Price : US$4.75 - $US5.95 (Varies with formulas)
Quantity/Size: These are tiny, the tubes are slightly thinner than the average chapstick tubes.
Fragrance : lightly scented , smells like vanilla to me. Nothing too noticable once the product is on the lips
My rating : 4.5 / 5
Repurchase? : Yes, Definitely
1 reason to get it/them: Because they are Silk Naturals' "Slimshines" with lipcare properties at only around US$5 each!

Texture: I think these are good dupes of MAC slimshines. If you like those, definitely try these.
All the formulas are smooth and easy to apply. None of these are completely matte. Some are more shimmery than others. There are also colors with no shimmer at all but with a very natural looking glossy finish.

Pigmentation / Color Payoff: Almost all the colors I chose are warm colors, more suitable for golden/warm/olive skin tones. I also prefer to leave my lips natural and avoid strong colors. SN still has a variety of plums and mauves that I would not be trying because those colors definitely will not suit me.

The normal formula ( white stickers) are the mostly very sheer.These This means that the same color will look different on different people.
You can tell from the swatch that there's not a lot of difference between some colors. Personally I cant tell an obvious difference between mimosa, foreplay and darling on my lips. Then again, my lips are rather pigmented. If your lips are more on the pale side, the result will definitely be different.

The Vegan, organic and black label lipglosses are a lot more opaque than the normal formula,still not totally opaque, but good enough.

Shades I like : For a shimmery natural , I love Foreplay, Mimosa, Precious, Negligee, Caramel and Maiden.

Precious is the most shimmery of all the lipstick I got, while caramel and maiden doesn't have any noticeable shimmer.

Rhapsody and Tender are lovely when I want a little bit of color as if I just bit my lips. A sheer coat of Rare berry also gives a similar effect in a cooler tone.

Polished Pink and Darling almost look the same on my lips because they are quite sheer. But they are too dark / reddish for my liking so I usually only wear one coat of these. As a result, there's almost no noticeable difference.


I also got a foundation refill and some samples to formulate my own Silk Natural's foundation.
I did order from them about a year or more ago, but I was too big of a Everyday Minerals fan to really put my heart down and make a switch.
Finally I've decided I'm gonna do it now!

It's stated that each refill pack should contain 1 table spoon per package, enough to fill a 30g jar. But it filled about 2/3 of my 20g jar. I dont have an issue with that personally, but I did buy a 30g jar elsewhere because I wanted to put my SN foundation in. That's ok I guess, i'll just use my 20g jar. I guess if you have medium or deep medium skin tone 1pack fo Ivory with the colored base will probably fill a 25g jar. Silk Naturals is know for the high quality ingredients they use in their foundation though. The price is still much cheaper as compared to most counter brand foundations.

Here are the pics with the full size refill pack next to a 30g jar of my chacott powder that I have. The smaller package is their sample pack.
