I love lipsticks, but since phasing chemicals out of my beauty regime, I have missed them. Since I binned my traditional lipsticks, I’ve been trying to find the perfect natural lipstick. I tried the NATOrigin Lipstick  and really liked the formula. Unfortunately, the colour didn’t suit me. I decided to try PHB Ethical Beauty 100% Pure Organic Lipstick in Camellia. As I absolutely love PHB Ethical Beauty’s Mascara and their Blusher, I had high hopes I was on to a winner. When it arrived, I loved the colour immediately. PHB Ethical Beauty 100% Pure Organic Lipstick in CamelliaI ordered my PHB Ethical Beauty 100% Pure Organic Lipstick through LoveLula, as part of their Beauty Blogger programme and it costs £12.95.PHB Ethical Beauty 100% Pure Organic Lipstick in Camellia on handIt doesn’t show up well in the picture but it has a shimmery, frosted finish, which is a bit eighties. It’s a blue toned pink, and very bright!

The lipstick bullet is quite hard, compared to other lipsticks. You either have to press quite hard, or blast it for a few seconds with your hairdryer. That softens it up nicely. It gives a good pop of colour once it’s on, so it’s worth the extra effort.

I haven’t been able to show the colour that well. It actually looks lighter and brighter than it looks here, with a frosted finish. It feels nice and moisturising and has a good pigment level.

PHB Ethical Beauty Lip Crayon and Lipstick

Apart from concealer, all the make-up I’m wearing in this picture is from PHB Ethical Beauty: Mineral Foundation, Mineral Blusher, Lip Liner, Lipstick and Mascara.

I found it looked different when I used a lip liner. I used the PHB Ethical Beauty Lip Crayon in Tigerlilly (£8.95), which is a warm nude pink.

It wears well, and is comfortable, and though the shade is a bit over the top for every day wear, they have so many other shades there is sure to be one that suits.

    That shade really suits you. I like the Ere Perez and Lippy Girl lipsticks. x

    I discovered PHB last spring and I love their skincare. Regarding their make-up range, well,I’m not so sure. I bought 3 lipsticks,raspberry,mulberry and apricot. Like you I love the colours plus the fact they’re organic and good for you. Yet the texture makes them difficult to apply. I usually have to scrape the top of the bullet as it becomes very hard. They don’t have a lot of staying power,either, and tend to settle into my lip lines.

      Thanks so much for your comment, I have only tried a few of their skincare products but have been impressed. The lipstick is quite hard isn’t it, have you tried melting it slightly with a hairdryer before you put it on? That’s what I do, and it helps. I also use a teeny bit of lip balm before I apply it, that might help? xx

        Thanks for the suggestions. However I still feel disappointed with the PHB lipsticks. After a few weeks, they get even harder to apply and not only the colour but also the taste have altered, they seem to have oxidized. xx
