My recent visit to Mrs. Green’s Natural Market brought me also to the cosmetic/toiletries aisle. Was really shopping for daikon and almond milk though ;). Besides carrying the wonderful PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics, they also carry an awesome new brand, Primitive Natural Makeup. I wasn’t going to miss an opportunity to test their lipsticks; I was solo on this shopping trip and could take my time. I tested their Sahara lipstick and loved the color and color pay-off; also the scent is pleasantly sugary, reminding me of MAC lipsticks. I did end up buying Sahara (to replace a beloved rosy toned Christian Dior; yes, you heard me correctly) but wouldn’t mind going back for a few others next time. I have my eyes on Corsica and Martinique!
Pros: Smooth application, pleasant sugary scent (sugar/butter cookies), non-drying to lips, decent wear time, good color pay-off (ever so slightly sheer as far as Sahara goes, others to be seen), great selection of colors which would flatter most skin tones.
Semi-Cons (if even): Slightly pricy at $17.50 but worth the price for its nice quality, not the most interesting packaging (but I personally don’t care about this).
PNM’s lipsticks impressed me enough to want to give their other products a chance so I hope you will explore their website or visit one of their stockists.
