This Lippy Girl Vegocentric Vegan Lipstick in Coral Me Maybe* is the first product that I've ever tried from Lippy Girl Makeup's range - and it has not disappointed! I didn't really know what to expect from the product as the natural lipsticks I've tried so far have been incredibly hit (Living Nature and Ilia) or miss (Honeybee Naturals). However, as soon as I first applied Coral Me Maybe I knew I was going to love it, as it immediately had all the tell-tale makings of a really great lipstick.
The Lippy Girl Vegocentric Vegan Lipstick packaging is compact but sturdy, with a weightiness that imbues it with a sense of luxury. Furthermore, the lipstick itself is very secure in the tube, twisting up and down easily. The formula of the lipstick is also really nice as it isn't too creamy which means that depending on your preference you can apply it quite sheerly or layer it up for an opaque colour. Lippy Girl's Vegocentric Vegan Lipsticks also contains lots of natural oils and butters (castor seed oil, jojoba oil, feels very smooth on the lips which makes it easy to apply evenly and very comfortable to wear. They strike a really nice balance between offering a moisturising application of colour, but one that isn't too thick and doesn't just slip off your lips. As a result, I found that I didn't need to use a lip liner to get a precise looking finish, and equally I didn't need to exfoliate my lips either. Overall, it's just really easy to apply, comfortable to wear and I loved the semi-opaque colour achieved in a couple of layers. Below, you can see what Lippy Girl's Coral Me Maybe looks like in natural daylight (both images show the colour and finish achieved with two-three layers of lipstick).
Lippy Girl's Vegocentric Vegan Lipstick in Coral Me Maybe* is my idea of a perfect spring/summer lipstick shade. It's a very pretty pinky-coral shade that really brightens up the complexion without actually being all that bright itself. Coral Me Maybe has a very subtle frost finish that not only makes my lips look bigger than they really are but also catches the sunlight in a really beautiful way. The overall effect is very flattering but it isn't a "natural" looking lip colour as you can definitely notice it on your lips. I personally really like the shade and although it doesn't last all that long on my lips it does fade evenly which makes me feel comfortable wearing it on a day-to-day basis. Overall, I think the colour is fresh, modern and perfect for the summertime - and considering that the lipstick is also 100% vegan, and that the metal packaging can be recycled, I'm really, really impressed.
