To me, when it comes to makeup, lipstick is the absolute quickest way to feel “dolled up” and feminine. I love shades of pink the most, with an occasional mauve, berry, nude, and red thrown in. These happen to be the all-natural, non-toxic lipsticks I have in my collection that I think are perfect for Spring. I have swatched all these products on bare lips to try to give the best color representation possible. I also photographed them all in natural light.
W3LL People Nudist Colorbalm in No. 8 Poppy – Think of a tinted lipbalm when you think of this color. It is very moisturizing with a slight hint of fucshia. Perfect for applying without a mirror. It doesn’t seem to leave a stain once it wears off.
Ilia Lip Gloss in Love Buzz – This is a very glossy, non-sticky violet tinged cool pink lip gloss. The packaging is gorgeous and I love the fun, very wearable color. Like all lip gloss that I personally have used, it wears well unless you eat or drink a fair amount.
RMS Beauty Lip Shine in Sublime – This little pot is like melted cotton candy. Such a gorgeous glossy shade of deep pink! Wears about the same as a lip gloss.
Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner in Shell Shock – This might be my favorite formula of all the lip products I own. The color is definitely gorgeous – a very wearable coral pink. But the application and texture are amazing. Just perfectly smooth and beautiful every time. I love the wear of this, but this particular shade doesn’t leave a stain behind as it fades.
Pacifica Devocean Lipstick in XOX – This is a super pretty cream lipstick in a neutral everyday pink shade. One thing that is a con about this lipstick is that compared to other lipsticks, it tends to cake a bit on my lips. I typically always apply lip balm under my lipstick, so it may be me or it may be the formula.
Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Retsina – In the past, I have never had luck with nude lipstick. They were always too brown or washed out my complexion (fair with yellow undertones). Retsina is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a flattering pale pink nude for my skintone. I usually purchase my lip products online, but this was one shade I wanted to be able to swatch before I purchased. Since Sephora is one of the only beauty stores close to me, I went with Bite Beauty. I really love this lipstick with smokier eyes…I’ve always thought women with smoky eyeshadow and nude lips were the epitome of sexy! This formula is super creamy.
Ilia Lipstick in Neon Angel – Perhaps the most fun of my lip products, Neon Angel is more versatile that it might appear. Applied over lipbalm, it gives a beautiful pink tint. Apply it over bare lips, and you can layer it in intensity until it is similar to the swatch above. I actually find this color very wearable, as it isn’t neon pink – just bright, bold magenta pink. This is a slightly drier formula, but I like that, as I feel it gives a very even application. Wear time is good.
Zuzu Luxe Lipstick in Starlet – A basic, cool toned “candy apple” red. For me, this is a classic red lip that looks good year round. And for the price, the formula is fantastic. It applies so smoothly and evenly. The formula is more creamy that Ilia lipstick, but not as creamy as the Bite Beauty lipstick or Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner. The wear time is quite good.
