NATorigin Lipsticks

It's always nice to discover a new cosmetic brand, especially when it's made in France by a family run business. NATOrigin is a brand that has been introduced in the UK by a couple in Oxfordshire 2 years ago. In very little time they have managed to bag quite a few awards for their products which is great!

Their products have quite a few credentials to them such as being organic, hypoallergenic, paraben free, free of mineral oil & silicone and approved by Allergy UK. Phew, that's a mouthful eh but always great to know that what it contains is 97% naturally sourced ingredients.

Their award winning lipsticks are full of waxes, butters and oils such as beeswax, jojoba seed oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil and even orchid extract for that irresistibly smooth texture that you can see in the swatches below. 

The texture of these is extremely silky and they glide on the lips like a balm and coat the surface area quite nicely, demonstrating brilliant pigment quality. As you can probably tell from the picture below, they are considerably glossy in finish, with a gorgeous sheen to them. A lip gloss on top is surely not required. 

I personally cannot stand wearing Lipsticks on a daily basis as they dry out my lips and peel and crack during mid-day. However these feel more hydrating that a lip balm and besides their overtly creamy texture, don't feather, bleed or fade quickly. Although sealing it with a lip liner would ensure longevity

I have tried out two shades from their Lipstick range namely Lychee and Fig. Lychee is a gorgeous my-lips-but-better shade for me. A soft mid-toned pink with mauve-lilac undertones to it. Fig on the other hand is a pure terracotta shade. A brick red to be precise. 

Because of the easily wearable texture, I love both the shades, Lychee a tad bit more. It's impossible to dislike these or even find a fault with it honestly. 

Excuse the hay fever-ish eyes please. *sniff sniff* 
The only problem I found with the Lipsticks was that they because they are SO hydrating and deliciously soft, they tend to melt slightly in hotter climate. A few days ago when temperature went up to 28 degree celsius and because my dresser is in my conservatory, I noticed the Lipsticks were melting down. Of course a short trip to the fridge can solve the problem or better if you can store them unexposed from the sun. 

Besides that, I truly haven't tried more moisturising, non-drying lipsticks before and I know where to get myself lipsticks from in the future. We need many more shades in the range NATorigin if you're listening :)

I love the fact that these are organic.. Ive been trying to switch over to paraben free cosmetics and finding it hard to find affordable yet organic! Beautiful colours.
