This week, I’m bringing you swatches of the Suntegrity mineral sunscreen lipgloss. I don’t often think of protecting my lips from the sun, but as the skin there is more delicate and thin, they actually need it. Suntegrity has developed a mineral lip gloss, which is designed to protect your lips, while also nourishing them with a hint of colour.
This gloss is described as a lightweight, creamy formula that delivers physical, broad spectrum SPF 25 protection, hydration, colour and sheen. They are not certified organic, but do contain organic castor seed and shea butter. The Suntegrity Mineral Sunscreen lip gloss retails $26.00 USD or $34.00 AUD for 4.8g/0.17oz
The formula is vegan friendly, and also reef friendly, as the sun protection comes from 12.7% mineral zinc oxide. I like that this is a really smooth, silky formula. I kind of wish it was slightly thicker, as the gloss feels a little light.

My favourite shades are definitely Tahiti Breeze and Skinny Dip. The lighter ones don’t suit me as well, just because my lips are already quite dark. I also don’t like the shimmer shades, but I do think those ones last better. I had a really tough time removing the shimmer between swatches. I think this definitely helps the colour be long lasting, because the gloss itself is on the lighter side and doesn’t last that long. The formula is really smooth, nourishing and nice feeling on the lips. Some of the colours are a touch patchy and the pigment can gather in dry areas. Sangria Kiss is probably the sheerest shades, while Wet Sand has the most coverage in one swipe.
I find that these are definitely a comfortable, balmy lipgloss. I do think that if they were a little thicker, with the same longevity as their Impeccable Skin, it would be better for physical activities and proper sun protection. Just wearing it around home, with eating and drinking, it doesn’t seem to last as long as I’d like. Overall I think they have a good spread of colours, though some won’t suit all darker skin tones. I also think that Tropical Punch, Pink Paradise, Sangria Kiss & Beach Bonfire were all very similar on my lips. None of them are colours I would pick for myself, but they are all on the sheer side, so they’re good for a touch of colour.
