A little while back, I picked up a few things from Lippy Girl
, which is a Canadian-based cruelty-free company. You can read my brief overview of the company here
. I originally heard about them through Twitter, but it wasn’t until Catherine from Buying Cruelty Free
reviewed a few products here
that I finally decided to place an order. I am so glad that I did, and many thanks to Catherine! J
I ordered the shade “Gobsmacked” which is a pretty pink that’s not too neutral, nor too loud. Right off the bat, I loved the shade so I was already impressed. I will say that picking a shade online is tricky, but there are a lot of photos of the bullets on the site, plus there are some photos on the Lippy Girl blog
that show some shades on lips. I just guessed what I might like and went for it. I’m not really sure there is a shade I would have hated, so that’s another plus! J
Aside from the color, I noticed the tip of the lipstick bullet was rather unusual. It curves inward a bit at the tip, which I initially found kind of awkward until I realized the purpose…well, my guess as to the purpose! I use the tip to kind of lightly line the outside of my lips and then apply the lipstick like any other, and it makes for a well-defined lip without needing a liner! Genius! JI’m not sure how long the tip can continue functioning this way, but it’s kind of a cool little addition that I really like.
The lipstick itself is pretty incredible! It is really comfortable and the perfect balance between too creamy and too waxy/dry. I would say it has a satiny finish. It’s not at all drying, and it stays put! After eating, it does fade a bit, but it is still there and wears evenly. It doesn’t seem to settle into lines and is just all around impressive! As if that’s not enough, it’s made with herbal-infused organic ingredients that all help protect and nourish lips while making them prettier!
I would definitely recommend the Lippy Girl Organic Lipsticks
and hope to collect many more!!! J
I hope they continue adding to their color selections as well! Love, love, love this lipstick!
Lippy Girl Organic Lipsticks retail for CAD15.50 and can be purchased through the newly revamped Lippy Girl website.
Awww, thank you for the link love, Christine! I'm so glad you like the lipstick. Gobsmacked is so pretty on you! I think it'd be a little too bright pink on me (colors like this seem to pull really “barbie pink” on me), but it goes so beautifully with your coloring! 🙂
How awesome! Looks great on you as well 🙂 and that curved tip thing is genius, must be so practical!
Thanks! The curved tip threw me a bit at first, but it actually is really helpful! It is slowly fading away, but it's just more of a standard lipstick shape so no big deal. I'd be curious to know why they have such a unique shape to them…and why more companies haven't done it! 🙂
Of course and thank you! Your post reminded me about the company and prompted me to place an order, so I feel you deserve some credit for the post! 🙂
I really like Gobsmacked. It's brighter than I expected, but it seems to work for me. It's always amazing how great one color can look on someone and then look terrible on someone else…not that I think it'd look terrible on you! 🙂 I have a lot of trouble with paler pinks, so Gobsmacked was a perfect choice for me!
