Vegocentric Lipstick from Lippy Girl

vegocentric1-500x500If you are on the hunt for a range of vegan lipsticks which are also organic (and wildcrafted) then I’m guessing not many names spring to mind. What about..? No. There is always … No…. Not many came to mine either when I sat down and thought about it. Carmine and beeswax free lipsticks are somewhat thin on the ground…

Lippy Girl Vegocentric Lipsticks (£12.50) are just that however and the twelve lipsticks in this vegan friendly collection form the backbone of the Lippy Girl cosmetics range founded by Vancouver based Chemistry teacher and ex-model Darcey Diehl.

The lipsticks are formulated using certified organic Castor Seed Oil, Jojoba seed oil, Carnauba Wax (replacing the beeswax), and Shea Butter; all of which create a creamy and super nourishing product. The inclusion of Shea Butter does mean that you have a product which is a little softer than you may like, however careful application from a not-too-wound-up bullet should avoid any potential mishap.

Fairly sheer on initial application I have found that the lipsticks seem to need a little layering to ensure a reasonable coverage, with the brighter shades need a bit more building up. On the lip (and once built up) they last around three to four hours before needing a top up.

Natural mineral pigments are used to create the shades (no carmine here!) and the lipsticks all have fun and somewhat out there names such as Ski Bunny, Son Of A Brick and Abaca-bam. I currently have four of the twelve shades (pictured above) and the stand out for me of these is Schoompy, a slightly lilac toned nude.

The lipsticks are housed in recycled aluminium tubes which are satisfyingly sturdy and have that reassuring click on opening and closure. I love a good click when I’m done with a lippy!

Have you tried Lippy Girl lipstick yet?
