28/03/15: Lippy Girl - Rosie Posie

I don't own many lipsticks.  I have a tonne of mini samples for swatching but only two or three full size grown-ass-lady lipsticks and to be honest I don't reach for them very often in comparison to the twenty-odd lip balms I have stored in every nook and cranny from bedroom to the office, plus a whole pot of spares in my make-up drawer...  

However, Lippy Girl is a lipstick brand that I have been lusting over all the way back to 2013, so I didn't hesitate when I was offered the chance to try out a shade from their Vegocentric line of 12 shades ranging from soft pink to brilliantly purple.

Lippy Girl is a Canadian line of make up created by Darcey Diehl; originally starting with just lip products, but now extended into mineral blushes, bronzers and eyeshadows.  

Rosie Posie* (5g ~ RRP £12.50) is a pretty pink-red that is listed as a limited edition.   Colour-wise it seems to have a hint of brown/bronze in the undertones which makes it a little more interesting than a straight up rose coloured lipstick.  I think the picture above shows quite well the hints that come through.  

However, I can't quite decide whether the bronze comes through on the lips.  I took two sets of photographs for this product and although it's not very obvious it looks to me like there's more there than just pink and red.  Maybe I'm going bonkers - what do you see?  

Clockwise from left - outdoors direct sun, indoors daylight by window, indoors daylight.

L-R:  outdoors, indoors shade, indoors daylight by window.

Good for me?
I'm very pleased with my venture into Lippy Girl and I'm definitely considering trying out a couple more of the shades - Ski Bunny looks like a great spring peach colour and I'm a sucker for anything coral, so Coral Me Maybe is high on the lust-list!  I'm also very happy with the pricing on these - only £12.50.  Plus the packaging is excellent - a 100% recyclable aluminum tube that looks sleek and features the Lippy Girl logo.  It feels substantial and like it wouldn't get destroyed at the bottom of my pit of a handbag.  

Good for you?
The formula is creamy and easy to apply, and gives an even finish.  It does get trapped in dry patches but that's down to my bad lip care rather than the product!  It wears quite well, and doesn't fade in an obvious manner:  I think it helps that the colour isn't too far away from my natural lip colour, so I don't know how it would be with some of the stronger shades in the collection.  

If you're new to green beauty then I don't think you can go far wrong with trying out one of these., but the ingredients, the packaging and colour range mean it's also a fantastic line for anyone already into the green thing to try out.

Get yours at Botanical Brands, My Pure or directly from Lippy Girl!

    It looks lovely on you. I would say it's more of a brick red rather than a pink x

  2. pp. you are like me, many lip balm and just 2-3 lipstick :) I tried this brand in the past but i don't remember how i love, thanks for the reminder, i will try again.. just need to found it :) xx

  3. Ooh lovely colour! I agree with Karen, it's like a brick red!

  4. That's really interesting, I would never have thought to describe it as a brick red! I really like it, and seeing the photos makes me realise it's not as shocking a colour as I first thought! x

  5. :D Lip balms are so cheap by comparison, and so easy to find... I love them and lose them in equal measure though! Ooh, which shade did you try? x

  6. Thanks Karen! I honestly wouldn't have thought of it as a brick red but now I look at it again it does come through with that burnt red-orange look - good call! x

  7. I have a couple blushes I like from Lippy Girl (though they've since changed the formula, so I don't know how the current ones compare) but I've not tried the lipsticks. Rosie Posie looks like a great everyday color!

  8. I've been eyeing up their new eyeshadows (no pun intended!) but haven't read any reviews yet. I'm definitely stocking up on a few more lip colours first though! x

    Super colour that really suits you lovely. I really like Lippy Girl and would love to try their lip shimmer x

  10. I didn't know they had a lip shimmer - totally honed in on the sticks without looking... oops! Will be sure to check them out; thanks Annie! x
