Organic Lipstick-100% Pure Matte Lipstick Review

Who doesn’t love a good organic lipstick? I am excited to share that I found an excellent green beauty lipstick. Now I don’t have to worry about toxic chemicals in it. 100% Pure had a promotion sale more than a month ago. So basically if you had the link and shared it on your Facebook page, then it allowed you to get a free matte lipstick and only pay the shipping ($5.99). I was super excited, since the organic lipsticks are usually $29. 100% Pure lipsticks are as pricey as sushi.

Review on 100% Pure Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick

The packaging describes it as “An ultra-matte, lightweight lipstick that glides on seamlessly for a soft finish while providing vibrant color from all-natural fruit pigments.

The description is 100 % accurate.

I was so surprised, and shocked that the lipstick was matte, but it didn’t feel like it stuck to my lips.

It glides really well on the lips, and of course I made sure to have clean dry lips before applying. I did notice that after about an hour the lipstick wiped away, so I would not describe this as long lasting. The smell is amazing though. I loved the fruit smell, because all the ingredients are natural. Some of the ingredients are cherry, cabernet grape, apricot, organic cocoa, shea butter, pomegrante, lavender, rosemary, and peach.

The color sandstone gres is a brown lipstick with hints of orange. It is a nude lipstick for sure. It is wearable for light or light to medium skin tones. I don’t think this would be a good color for medium or dark skin tones.

I can’t wait to try out more of 100% Pure’s lipstick collection, since I’ve heard nothing but great things.

Cruelty Free and Organic: Au Naturale and Ilia Lipstick Review

Lipsticks are my most favorite beauty product ever! I mean with a touch of color you can easily transform your face, and that’s without magic. So I’ve been trying new organic lipstick for a short time. I decided to buy these two cruelty free and organic lipsticks because I absolutely loved the color. Prior to using these organic lipsticks, I was using the Colourpop lippes. But I wanted to switch to organic lipsticks, because the ingredients are better and healthier for the skin. Please keep reading if you want to know what I think about these cruelty free and organic lipsticks.

Au Naturale in Marrakesh- $22

I first heard of this lipstick on Logical Harmony’s YouTube Channel. I bought it from Safe and Chic website. Marrakesh is a warm matte pink (pictured left). It is cruelty free, vegan, 100% natural, and it is made in the United States. I love the morals of this company, and I definitely plan on buying more from this brand. The formula for this lipstick is matte, and it lasts for about four hours on me. I noticed that it did make the lines on my lips visible, and because of that I had to add lip balm on top. This color is super pretty, and I did get a lot of compliments when I wore it.

Ilia in Funnel of Love- $26

I bought this cruelty free and organic lipstick online from Safe and Chic too. Ilia is much more moisturizing that the Au Naturale. I liked that my lips felt soft with this, but at the same time I felt that the lipstick moved around a lot and I had to retouch it with my fingers. This color is a soft nude with peachy undertones. Most likely I am going to buy the tinted lip conditioners, because on the website it said that these lipsticks pair well with those. I could go on and on, but I really liked this lipstick and I want to buy more.
