After tuning into the ‘A Moment On The Lips‘ Live Stream last week, I just couldn’t wait any longer to try one of their lipsticks. I haven’t really ventured into the world of Lush makeup before however I am keen to pick up a lot more after wearing this for the past week.
The one thing that I learnt from the live stream was to have fun with makeup and experiment with new colours. With this in mind, I picked up Power from Lush Lincoln whilst I was down there and after trying a couple of different shades on, I am glad that I went for this one. I don’t usually go for reds because I feel as though they wash me out however this shade makes me feel so confident.
Power is a gorgeous coral-red shade that shimmers in the light. The lipstick itself is long lasting however I did find that I had to re-apply if I was doing anything in the evening. All the lipsticks are made from jojoba oil, candelilla wax and rose wax then the pigment is added to give the lipsticks their colour. I have found Power to be extremely moisturising on the lips, quite similar to a lip balm but obviously with the added colour. This is down to the jojoba oil and rose wax that soothes and naturally moisturise the skin. Candelilla Wax is an alternative to beeswax, which is found in other brands, to add texture or help make barrier products such as a lipstick.
Overall, I would happily repurchase another shade from Lush. In fact, I am planning on picking up Confident and Perspective in the near future. The price of the lipstick is similar to that a high end brand which I am more than happy to pay because the product is suitable for vegans and don’t test on animals. The lipstick was really easy to apply because it comes with an easy to use applicator that doesn’t make a mess everywhere.
Have you ever tried one of Lush’s lipsticks before? What’s your thoughts? Let me know which colour you like the shade of too.
