Hi, I know, it’s been a while! I’ve been focusing on the brand I launched a couple of months ago alongside my mum – Jackfruit the label – and I’ve stopped taking makeup bookings. However, because I’m still a lover of truly cruelty free (yes, I’m still making the app!) beauty products, I’ve decided I’ll still do the occasional review over here when something blows my mind.
You guessed it, these blew my mind!
I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of these lippies, and I was SO happy when I found out that they were being released in recyclable aluminium tubes! I’ve been using these for a few weeks now, and I’m ready to share my thoughts with you.
The range consists of five earthy shades: Byron Bliss, Desert Rose, Splendour, Endless Summer and Byron Sunrise. The entire range is made with skin loving ingredients, and they’re vegan and palm oil free. At $25 they’re also an affordably luxurious option. Did I mention they come in a recyclable aluminium tube?!
I don’t wear as much makeup as I used to, and unless it’s a special occasion I like my makeup to take 10 mins max these days. My favourite thing about these lippies is that if they are applied lightly they’re basically a tinted lip balm and look great even when wearing no other makeup. Swipe a little more on for a more traditional lipstick finish.
The main ingredient in the range is castor oil, jojoba oil and cocoa butter, which means they’re never drying and they’re a pleasure to wear. They’re reasonably long lasting too, though this isn’t my main reason for liking or disliking a lipstick. It’s much more important to me how it feels to wear them, and how easy to apply they are, and this range ticks all the boxes.
The only downside is that the range is small, and won’t suit every skin tone, but that would be a mammoth task. Considering this I think the shades they have gone with will be shades a lot of Aussies will like. I certainly do!
Splendour and Desert Rose are my favourite shades, though once upon a time it would have been Byron Bliss. I’m just not wearing pink lips as much as I used to. Endless Summer is a lovely nude for me, and Byron Sunrise is a unique take on a nude shade. I’ll show you how they all look below.
Honestly, even after wearing this lipstick enough to review it, it’s still the first one I reach for each day – and considering how large my lipstick collection is that’s impressive in itself!
I hope this has helped you decide whether the Eco Minerals lippies are for you.
Thank you for choosing truly cruelty free products!
