Krave Moisturising Lip Shimmer–A lippy that has it all!

Pin It Now!

As my next instalment of reviews of amazing organic natural cosmetics products from Philippine home grown brand, Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals, I’m reviewing Krave Moisturising Lip Shimmer, in Berry Martini.

272In sync with recent trends of lip gloss/lip balm hybrids and moisturising lipsticks like Revlon Lip Butter and L'Oreal Color Riche Balms, Krave Moisturising Lip Shimmer promises to be everything you need in a lip product. Containing Shea Butter and Vitamine E and raspberry oil, to improve the condition of your lips and provide natural SPF. Like all of Krave’s cosmetics, Lip Shimmer is hypoallergenic and free of unnatural dyes and preservatives. All the better for things you are putting on your mouth!


Packaging wise, the product size is small and so is the applicator. I find you can’t get enough product out in one go.


For a lip gloss, the colour pay off is impressive, applying vibrantly in one swipe. I love this unique pinkish purple shade. The ‘shimmer’ part of this product is quite subtle, which I prefer. Because of the relatively thick consistency, the colour is very buildable. However, to build up a reasonable level of opacity, you do need to apply quite a bit.120

The consistency of Krave Moisturising Lip Shimmer reminds me somewhat of Bert’s Bees Super Glossy natural Lip Shine, but Krave Moisturising Lip Shimmer has a much more satisfying smooth and rich formula. It feels great on the lips. Silky smooth, non-sticky and very hydrating. It’s great knowing that the condition of my lips will improve the more I wear this. The tart berry scent of this lip gloss is divine.


What I love the most about this product is the high gloss finish. It smooths out the appearance of the lips, making them look healthy and supple!



Philippine home grown brand producing high quality wearable organic makeup made with natural ingredients that’s good for your skin and totally affordable. It’s products are manufactured in the USA. Krave Blush Crush, a loose mineral powder blush, is made with Rice Powder and containing Natural SPF. And, for those of you who love key words, it’s also kosher, vegan, glutan free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog pores), non-acnegenic (doesn’t cause breakouts!), and like all Krave products, completely chemical free *phew*.



  • Satisfying colour pay off
  • High gloss shine
  • Silky smooth and super hydrating
  • Made with natural ingredients
  • Very affordable, at Php 180 (~$4AUD)!
  • Small applicator makes it difficult to get enough product out in one dip
