Winners of over 35 cosmetics awards, the company started in 2006 and their range have become world renowned for out-standing performance. They have one of the highest safety ratings in the world and contain absolutly no chemicals.
Made according to strict European Union directives. The products do not contain petrochemicals, parabens, artificial fragrances or PEGS.
Researchers have detected nine toxic heavy metals including lead, aluminium, cadmium, manganese and chromium contained in lipsticks from many well known mainstream brands. This is why I stopped wearing cosmetics which are not natural a long time ago.
Recently Inika have released their vegan lipsticks with a new formula and I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on one.
The colour I’ve been wearing is Cherry Blossom. It lives up to it’s name and looks and even tastes amazing.
The lipstick is actually infused with essential oils, as soon as I placed some on my lips it tasted like a creamy fruity treat.
I wear lipstick every day, even when I’m not going to work. I love how a bit of colour lifts me up and when using organic lipsticks my lips are kept soft and healthy.
I found that this lipstick lasted a long time, it was very moisturising. The texture is creamy and the colour stayed on my lips after drinking and eating, with a touch up at lunch time.
I didn’t end up with that lipstick trail around the edges of my lips and it didn’t go all flaky.
For an organic lipstick, the staying power is impressive. A lot of those non-natural ‘long wearing’ lipsticks last a long time because they contain dangerous chemicals and they are also very drying.
The colour is natural and pretty, it suited my complexion, as having pale skin I have to be careful I don’t look too washed out, so I tend to go for warmer colours like this. It has a matte texture with a tiny bit of shimmer. It glides on easily, which I think is an improvement with the new formula, it seems to feel more silky.
It contains certified organic avocado and jojoba seed oils, shea butter and argan oils.
I like the stylish black packaging, which is made from sustainable materials.
There are 8 colours to choose from ranging from natural browns to pink and red, something to suit all skin tones.
The lipsticks also come with matching lip liners. I always use a lip liner with lipstick as I think it defines the lips and looks very classy.
