Vegan Lipstick – Perfect Organics Lip and Cheek Shimmers
The Green Girls Answer to Nars The Multiple!
Why do I love these Lip and Cheek Shimmers so much? Is it because they contain organic and vegan ingredients or because each shade is named after stylish destination cities that appeal to the global nomad within? Whatever the reason, all vegan girls can get those colour deprived nude lips ready for a make over because the colour range from Perfect Organics is divine.
Choose from pretty pinks (Tokyo and Cairo), peaches (Faz), ‘sparkling swirls of lilac’ (Sydney) or earthy browns (DC and Santiago). Being a former Sydney sider now living in London, I was understandably torn between the lilac of Sydney and the ‘golden burgundy’ of London. London won out in the end as my pale winter skin needed a strong colour to perk my face up.
The ingredient list is fantastically minimal and contains lip loving organic argan, coconut and macadamia nut oils and softening organic shea butter. I particularly love the addition of organic peppermint essential oil which creates a delicious chocolate peppermint crisp / mingle scent!
I wasn’t sure the colour would be strong enough on the lips and soft enough on the cheeks when I read the word ‘shimmer’, but the coverage from the London shade is spot on. Lips are a terracotta shimmery brown and cheeks have a dewy ‘I look like I just did my daily ashtanga class but really didn’t’ kind of flushed look. Perfect!
