Here are three beautiful organic lipsticks by FitGlow Beauty that I have been rotating through lately. Each color is as beautiful as the next, depending on your outfit, mood or occasion. “Mae” has become my default daytime lipstick, “Love” is currently my favorite red (I mean really, look at that color) and “Craze” is the perfect pop of pink for the summer.
These lipsticks are very vibrant and as you can see, show up just as colorful as the stick appears. I’m impressed at this because the formulation is very lightweight, and not as thick as a lipstick typically is. The consistency is comparable to Ilia Lipstick Crayons. The formulation sits nicely on the lips and doesn’t bleed out.
They are very moisturizing and make the lips look and feel smooth and hydrated. This is why I can wear “Mae” casually throughout the day because it is an understated pink and feels sort of like a lipbalm but a bit thicker.
They are not matte but rather silky, giving the color a beautiful luster, especially with the red.
I should note that the color can appear differently in pictures depending on the lighting and density of application. For example, in the first image below I am wearing Craze on a very bright, sunny day and with some clear lipbalm. In the second, I am wearing it undiluted and it was cloudy outside. Colors tend to show up differently on camera, but I would say that in person, the shades always look how they show in the swatch above.
Another thing I love about these lipsticks is that they do not stain your lips as darker colors typically do. Some people may prefer that characteristic but I don’t always like to commit to one color for the whole day. You can easily remove the color with some oil and a paper towel and have a blank slate for a new lipstick. That being said, the color won’t come off unless you deliberately remove it or eat and drink.
Overall, I think these lipsticks are a great natural and organic option – perfect consistency that is lightweight and hydrating, silky appearance and non-toxic ingredients.
