This is my first ever review of a lipstick on the blog and I hope it won’t be the last one because I am sure that very soon more natural and organic lipsticks find their way on the shelves. When Megs mentioned that Young Lipsticks were now available at her store, I was happy! I could at last buy a natural lipstick. At least now I can choose to apply a lipstick regularly.
I picked up two shades, 616 (Wine Red) and 206 (Burgundy). I wanted to buy more, but stuck to these shades that go with most colours because I wanted to first try them out. And I need to tell you that I was not disappointed with the lipsticks even one bit. It has a faint fragrance that lingers for a while post application and the colour is long lasting.
I quite loved the packaging, its a sleek black case that you can dunk into your purse when you are on the go.
I picked up a matte and one with had just a bit of shimmer in it. And I love both the shades. I can never buy a lipstick online, I need to go and test the shade before I pick it up, so despite this having its presence online for quite a while, I never got around buying it. Since I have a wheatish skin tone, not many colours actually suit me.
Price, shelf life and where can you buy it?
You can buy these online on Naturelle. And if you stay in Pune, stop by Megs quaint little store located in Karve Road and look up the lipsticks and lots of other stuff she has in her store. This 4.30 gms of lipstick is priced at INR 270 and has a shelf life of 3 years.
You can also buy these lipsticks from Goodlife ( they are currently running an offer here, so you can buy this for INR 217 only, a good 54 INR lesser! ) and on Natural Mantra. It used to be available on Urban touch too before it shut shop.
Will I recommend it?
Of course yes! Why would I not? It’s filled with the goodness of clarified butter, kokum butter, honey and beeswax and it keeps your lips moisturized and nourished. I used to apply a thin layer of lip balm earlier before I applied any lipstick, with these lipsticks you don’t need to do so because the clarified butter and kokum butter are more than enough to keep your lips soft and hydrated even when you have applied the lipstick.
One thing about this lipstick is that it is on the creamy side, so the application is faster, but because it is so creamy, I am not sure if it will melt fast.
What’s in it?
One note here, I wrote to the company almost a month ago asking them for the complete ingredient list and they never responded despite a reminder mail, which was sad! While I love the ingredient list on the cover, I am not sure about how they get the actual colours, so I feel that the ingredient list is a bit incomplete.
