Lippy Girl in Son of a Brick

Whilst I'm defiantly more of a hair care and skin care kinda gal, when it comes to make-up it's a certainly a new lipstick that gets me more pumped than anything else (a new nail varnish shade comes a close second). The most recent addition to my expanding collection is by 100% vegan lip stick brand Lippy Girl in the colour Son of a Brick*.  

What immediately caught my eye about this collection (aside from being 100% vegan) is the wide colour selection, and colours that are a bit different to the norm. There's no blue shades of the like, but they have shades of pink and red which aren't the 'default' colour (if you get what I mean?). I settled on Son of a Brick after Googling swatches and decided that my collection needed a new orange. 

So far I only own one orange lipstick and that is Gosh in Flirty Orange (seen in this outfit post). And good jolly it's ORANGE and not something I'd pop on unless I'm heading on a night out. Son of a Brick is a much more wearable orange, and has a rusty tone to it. If you're quite new to orange lipstick and not sure if it will suit you it's a much better starter shade. Or if you just prefer your lipstick colours to be of a more subtler persuasion but don't want to miss out on the orange trend.

Below is a picture of me wearing along with my daily make-up (ignore the tired would-rather-be-in-bed face - this was 8:30pm last night).

Quality wise Lippy Girl is a moisturising lipstick. which does mean it requires a few coats to get a full on colour, and the it doesn't last as long as a matte lipstick would. If I apply it at 8am before work I tend to find it stays on until 10am and then it's time to reapply. Which isn't bad but you need to remember to pop it in your handbag. But if you have dry lips I recommend this as it is super soft. 

Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor), SeedOil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit Copernicia (Carnauba) Wax, EuphorbiaCerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) Peel Oil, Tocopherol. 

I'd recommend this: if you prefer softening softening, you're after a wearable orange. 

I wouldn't recommend this: if you like a long lasting matter lipstick.

  1. I do tend to go for a matte finish when it comes to lipstick, but there's no denying that is a gorgeous colour! I really want to try out an orange toned shade so might look in to this one some more xx
