CROP Natural lipstick 'Spice' Review
Wednesday, 7 October 2015
Some months ago I was gifted a wonderful parcel from CROP cosmetics and it is high time I review one of my favourite products from the bunch, the natural lipstick! The lipstick comes in 2 colours: Spice and Plum and retails for $18 AUD. I received Spice, a beautiful warm brownish nude, perfect for my skin tone.
CROP cosmetics are available in Australia at Coles and the last time I checked in my local store, some items were on sale! The natural lipstick is 100% naturally derived, cruelty free and dermatologically tested for your sensitive lips, not to mention this long list of "no's":
I was also pleasantly surprised to see that all items are made in Italy, which is synonymous with quality.
For a brand sold at Coles, the packaging is impressive. The tube is lightweight and matte black with a clear accent on the bottom. As you can see, the lipstick has been well used in these past months!
As soon as I uncapped the lid, I knew this colour was right for me. It's a brownish, brick nude that suits my medium warm skin perfectly! The formula is also a winner as it contains oil and wax, giving it a thick, balmy texture which I favour. It's also highly pigmented giving me perfect pouty lips in one swipe. You guys know I cannot wear lip products that are even slightly drying because I have naturally dry flaky lips so I'm pleased to say that this is definitely a hydrating formula. It wears for around 3 hours on me and fades gracefully and does not make my lips get gummy and peel (gross I know). The shade allows me to easily reapply it without a mirror.
This shade is the perfect darker natural nude and completes any neutral or smokey eye look, making me look professional and put together for every day use. It also makes my lips look bigger and fuller as well as de-emphasises all my creases. I even wore it in my battle Pocahontas photoshoot, as it is very fitting for a native warrior princess!
This natural lipstick is my absolute favourite nude right now due to the thick, hydrating formula and flattering shade. The naturally derived ingredients list and cruelty-free policy is an added bonus! I would recommend 'Spice' for medium to dark skin tones, and I want to pick up 'Plum' the next time I'm at Coles.
You can get these lippies online at Crop for $18. Unfortunately there's a flat rate shipping of $9.95 within Australia, so I suggest getting them in store.
*This item was gifted and I chose to review it of my own accord, all opinions are 100% honest.
