Antipodes loves nature, and so do I!
That is one of the reasons why I support and use Antipodes skincare, that and because it works wonders on my dry, sensitive skin.
Now Antipodes has brought out a lipstick range and I was so excited to try it!
These lipsticks have been designed with the information in mind that everything we apply on our skin, we ingest.
Over the course of her lifetime, a woman may consume as much as three kilograms or seven pounds of lipstick into her body. She absorbs it through the skin of her lips, or swallows it when she eats or drinks. So Antipodes formulated these lipsticks with ingredients that are not only safe to consume – but actually healthy!
These healthy ingredients feature some of nature’s superfoods:
- Avocado oil: Packed with essential fats, vitamins and minerals, Antipodes’ ‘Green gold for skin’ helps to increase collagen production and keep your lips beautifully dewy and fresh.
- Calendula oil: Healing oil from the marigold flower has anti-inflammatory properties.
- Evening primrose oil: This edible oil is so rich in healthy fats it’s used as a natural dietary supplement.
- Argan oil: The Moroccan nut oil balances oil production and hydrates lips for a soft, moist finish.
They also added antibacterial beeswax, deeply moisturising shea butter and jojoba oil, and even extra Vitamin E for lip nourishment. All of the lipstick ingredients are from natural origin, with only low levels of FDA-approved colour pigments added for vibrancy.
So with that in mind I thought I just had to bring these lippy’s to Maverick.
First thing I noticed was the packaging!
The boxes are made from 100% biodegradable cardboard from sustainable forests and each are different with colours co-ordinating to whichever shade, which I think is a cute touch.
The tubes are a nice weight and feel super high quality with the soft matte finish.
So far so good and I am even more excited to try it out on my lips! I’m going to try the epic-ly bright Dragon Fruit Pink.
I started by prepping my lips using my fave lip treatment e v e r the Kiwi Seed Lip Conditioner
The next thing I noticed is the unconventional shape of the lipstick.
I wasn’t too sure how this would apply to my lips as I usually rely on the regular contour of lipsticks to help me achieve a sharp outline.
But, as you can see, it worked out perfectly! (Well I reckon it did lol!)
I love the pigmented, smooth formula that feels so hydrating and ultra luxe.
You can get these healthy lipsticks from my store Maverick Cosmetica
There’s such a diverse range of flattering shades I’m so excited to try each one.
I’ll be posting each makeup look on Instagram so head over to @maverickcosmetica for some makeup looks featuring these gorgeous lippys!
Let me know which shade you’re most excited to try in the comments!
Keep being you xx
