After being contacted by fellow makeup artists and sisters Helen & Kitty who founded the company who make these great products I awaited my delivery of their 5 plush lipsticks. Each lipstick was contained in their own individual bag, nestled in paper hearts and a label-perfect for any Bride. I loved the packaging, simple classic white and with the name of the lipstick on the bottom of the tube, not the lid. Great for makeup artists like me as there’s no chance of losing track of which lipstick is which!
The names are well-chosen: ‘ Just Married’ a classic pure nude, ‘Love Story’if you think you can’t wear red, think again! Very subtle and and soft, ‘Kiss the Bride’, a bright pink and particularly looks great for fair skinned Brides, ‘I Do’ a pinkish nude colour , suitable for anyone and ‘Blushing Bride’ a deliciously warm pink tone and one of my personal favourites. There really is a classic colour for everyone, from nudes through to red and all are long-lasting. Not in a way that means they go dry if not topped up-oh no! Lips stay moist and the formula is non-bleeding. The piece de resistance is that they aren’t tested on animals.
What do I like about them?
Easy to apply, fabulous consistency and staying power, flattering colours, very quick delivery and exceptional customer service.
My Brides love the packaging, how it feels and tastes on their lips and more room in my makeup case as I don’t need to carry around tons of lipsticks now. The other plus is that I don’t have to worry about the products being discontinued as sometimes happens with other brands.
If you are looking for a company that is both ethical, affordable (the lipsticks are only £12 each). I’m a convert; love them!
