Om nom nom new lippy!
So I have little to no experience reviewing products, or blogging about products, or talking about products on my Facebook page so far. However at this time I feel compelled to promote a small business and tell other people how much I love their stuff!
I was first drawn toward TheBodyNeeds after seeing a tutorial done by the amazing Angie Y (which I currently cannot find) using the blackened pigments available. These pigments are amazing, and come in many shades (Blackened Turquoise, Blackened Violet etc). So I went to the site and ordered the whole range. I use them almost every day on myself and in my kit! TheBodyNeeds sent me a sample of their Lip Luster, and I now carry that (almost empty) little sample in my handbag. It's called "Forget Him.." and is the nicest pink :-)
TheBodyNeeds are a mineral makeup supplier, cruelty free, and located in Minnesota, USA - but don't let the location throw you, they post quickly and at reasonable prices. They started out selling MAC samples, but have grown and sell their own sample size products (perfect for a makeup kit).
I decided to go on a Lip Luster buying spree - (well, 9 colours is hardly a spree, but I'm not a big lippy buyer, I tend to only have the necessities) and I've decided to share my swatches with you.
These are all applied onto my bare lip, with no pencil or primer base - so you can see that they can be used for a sheer glossy coverage, or a more opaque coverage with the appropriate base. Some of these shades are quite metallic. They are super smooth and comfortable to wear, and they smell delicious! They also come in these nifty lippy sample wind-up containers!
I will mention that, including postage (and a few awesome samples), this cost me in total $28.48USD (purchased on a 30% off entire site sale - but still damn good.
Check them out on Facebook and on their website!
