When it comes to lipstick I’m a MAC girl! I’ve loved MAC lipstick since the first episode of Twin Peaks. I thought the girls looked so cool with their brooding makeup; so when my cousin came to CA for a visit from NYC, and she was wearing lipstick just like the girls on Twin Peaks, my sis and I thought it was fate. After begging my father for $50, we jumped in the car and headed to Nordstrom’s for our 1st tube of MAC’s Veruschka lipstick.
The deep dark red/brandy color was amazing! I didn’t have to have any makeup on, just my lipstick. Every time I wore it, I felt pretty and someone asked me if I had my teeth whitened. When MAC stopped making Veruschka my sis and I were devastated, but looking back, it was probably a good thing. I think my sister was allergic to something in the lipstick. We didn’t care as long as we looked good. We ended up making the switch to MAC’s Diva, not as dark, but it did the trick.
If you’ve been following Mommy’s Organics, you know that I’ve lost my make up back, and with it my Diva Lipstick from MAC. Since I decided to make the switch to organic beauty products, or at least try, I figured I would try to find an organic lipstick to replace my beloved Diva. I came across Eve Organics beauty cosmetics and ordered their Brandy Lipstick since it reminded me of Diva and my all time fave Veruschka.
1. Non Drying-feels like a lip balm when you put it on.
2. No animal testing. They give back to the community. Eve Organics gives 10% of its net profits to a different charity to help support people or communities in need.
3. Made in the U.S.A.
5. Reasonably priced $15.95.
Cons: Color is not saturated. It’s more like a lip balm with some color.
Overall-I give it 4 out of 5 pumpkins -if you’re looking for a light brandy colored lipstick, this may be for you:) I’m looking forward to trying more of their products.
MAC’s Diva lipstick is just one product I’m not going to be able to give up! Happy Birthday sis:)
IT’S YOUR TURN: Have you ever had a beauty product that you know that’s not good for you, but you loved it anyway? Don’t be shy, I would like to hear from you.
Thank you for stopping by:)
