I have nearly always been a lipstick over lipgloss kinda gal, and even more so throughout lockdown - nobody wants a sticky, gloopy mess on their face coverings! I was recently very kindly sent some lipsticks from Antipodes, the Antipodes Moisture-Boost Natural Lipsticks* to try out and of course I wanted to share my thoughts with you all.
Especially during the height of Winter and Summer, my lips tend to get very easily dried out, and therefore I am always more inclined to choose a moisturising lipstick formula, which is where this particularly Antipodes lipstick comes in handy. There are twelve beautiful shades to choose from, and here I have a selection of stunning corals, pinks and reds, perfect for all year round!
The Moisture-Boost formula has been created with ingredients that are not only safe and natural, but so healthy you could almost eat them - which is actually what it says on the lipstick tube! In the past, there have been so many rumours about certain lipstick ingredients being harmful, and so it is refreshing to see a formula that is completely safe to use.
Key ingredients include pure plant oils of avocado, evening primrose oil and calendula, which are renowned for their conditioning and soothing properties, helping to prevent the lips drying out. The formula is also certified vegetarian by the UK Vegetarian Society and Antipodes as a whole is committed to repurposing, reusing and recycling, including using recyclable boxes made from 100% biodegradable cardboard derived from sustainable forests as well as glass bottles, aluminium tubes and printing with 100% eco ink from vegetables. This is brand that not only cares about the consumer, but also the world as a whole and this is super admirable.
The shades I have here are South Pacific Coral - a sweet everyday coral pink, Dragon Fruit Pink - a gorgeous vivid pink to add a pop of bright colour to the lips, West Coast Sunset - a smoky orange-red, and Forest Berry Red - a wild and warm-based true red, perfect for all year round. The colours apply true to the lips, even from just one swipe and as soon as they are applied to the lips they are really comfortable, lightweight and nourishing.
The Antipodes Moisture-Boost Natural Lipsticks retail for £20.00 each and you can find them online at Antipodes UK here.
All the Loves,
