Wearable 90's inspired purple lip. It's vegan friendly too!

If you get bored of donning your usual MAC neutral lippies, it's time to be a bit more adventurous this winter. Incorporate some dark numbers into your collection. Bold, beautiful and eccentrically appealing, Lippy Girl's Vegocentric lipstick in Goddess is just what the alter ego ordered. Very vampy, was the first thought that came to mind when I saw the dark plum-purple lipstick bullet. The more coats I added, the deeper the plum became. It went from a berry-wine stain to a full-on gothic plum in seconds. It oozed glam, like the gorgeously daring Katy Perry and RiRi at red carpets. It perfectly complimented my olive skin tone, sun-kissed hair and less-is-more makeup look. And my teeth looked whiter than normal (*smiles nonchalantly*). 

As for the formula of it, I loved how creamy and soft it was on application. The balmy formula settles quickly and leaves a wearable, shimmery-matte stain without the lip-biting dryness. It's a little reminiscent of those frosty, dark lips from the 90's but without the intense opacity. It's in fact easily wearable and does not look gothic. I wore it for about 8 hours and the coverage changed from a deep sultry purple to a lighter plum stain by the end of the day. It wears quite well, without any bleeding or craggy patches. Overall, I was quite impressed by this Canadian product's nourishing quality and feel. This sultry Canadian lipstick is also free from gluten and uses only plant-based ingredients. Even the vitamin E is sourced from sunflower for its moisturising properties. Oh Canada, you have outdone yourself once again!
