Product Review: @LippyGirlMakeUp

2 Comments

Yahoo! Another Canadian lipstick company! But I’m wondering why most of the organic and natural skincare companies I like are in BC! Maybe I should move there? Anyway, Lippy Girl is a Whistler, BC based company that makes lipsticks, lipgloss and blush! It was founded by Darcey Diehl when she became frustrated with the limited availability of products that are organic, animal friendly and earth friendly. See the Lippy Girl About page for more details. I first bought their lipsticks in May and have been loving them since.

Note: All images except the swatches below are from the Lippy Girl Website.

LG-VexyVixen

Vexy Vixen

Ingredients: Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax), Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Joboba) Seed Oil, Organic Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Vegetable perhydrosqualene, Natural tocopherol (Vitamin E), Vitis vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil. May Contain: Titanium oxides, Iron oxides

Vexy Vixen is part of the Organic Line of lipsticks. You can’t beat these ingredients. Very clean. I love the play on words that makes this lipstick name: very vixen and sexy vixen. What woman doesn’t want to be thought of as sexy and a vixen? Colour-wise, Vexy Vixen is a vibrant hot pink that is perfect for the spring/summer months. Since it’s quite bright I like to layer it with a slightly darker colour if I want to be more subtle. This lipstick glides on smoothly, is hydrating, and the colour is quite intense. It’s not sheer unless you put very little on and then put a gloss on top. I like that these lipsticks don’t have a flavour per se. That’s great because it doesn’t interfere with the flavours of whatever I’m eating or drinking.

LG-CoralMeMaybe

Coral Me Maybe

Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit*, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax*, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) Peel Oil*, Tocopherol, may contain (+/-) Mica (CI 77019), Tin Dioxide (CI 778161), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Calcium Aluminium Borosilicate, Silica *Certified Organic Ingredient

Coral Me Maybe is a nice soft peachy colour and part of the Vegocentric Organic Lipstick Line. Despite the name being coral it doesn’t look like a true coral colour on my lips. To me coral is a bright reddish orange. But anyway, I digress. This colour is a bit too pastel for my skin tone. So I like to layer a colour on top of it. I’m knocking the rating down a notch since the colour doesn’t suit me.  Also the lipsticks are quite soft.  A couple of days after receiving my lipstick it actually broke from the base of the lipstick case. I let Lippy Girl know and they sent me Son of a Brick. Thanks Lippy Girl!

LG-Sonofabrick

Son of A Brick

Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit*, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax*, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) Peel Oil*, Tocopherol, may contain (+/-) Mica (CI 77019), Tin Dioxide (CI 778161), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Calcium Aluminium Borosilicate, Silica *Certified Organic Ingredient

True to its name, this lipstick is a nice brick red colour. Son of A Brick is also part of the Vegocentric Organic Lipstick Line.  The colour also goes on opaque and smooth. Worn alone this lipstick is punch of solid colour. But you can also layer the lipsticks to get different looks. If you want a more subtle colour it would be best to use this as the base and then perhaps put a lip gloss on top for some shimmer. I’m still exploring Lippy Girl’s colour range so I think I would try a different colour next time. Variety is the spice of life after all!
