Lipfacts or Fiction?
When I was approached to review an all natural lipstick, I was hesitant at first. I am the first one to say I am not a lipstick fan. I will choose lip gloss or lip balm any day! I really like the natural lip look. But when I thought about it, I realized that many of my readers love lipstick and may need some safer options. So I decided to go for it and explore an all natural lipstick line.
Facefacts by Lori is a small cosmetic company started by professional makeup artist Lori Hoffman. Right now, they offer lip products, but look for more cosmetic products coming soon! All Lipfacts Naturally Elegant Lipsticks are made with completely natural and organic ingredients. Lipfacts uses mineral pigments to make beautiful colors and does not test on animals. Lori sent me two colors: Raisin and Berry Mauve. These colors were very similar (a reddish-brown) and I only tried them for a day, as they were not my colors! I decided to pass them to a friend of mine….and it turns out they were her perfect colors!
My friend really liked these lipsticks! She told me they were very long-wearing, rich, and creamy. She did say that they seemed to need more moisture. I had the same thought when I tried the Almond Cream shade. I countered this by adding a top layer of lip gloss…it made it more moist. I also always use lip balm before I put lipstick on so that helped too.
This was Lori’s response when I mentioned that we thought the lipsticks needed a bit more moisture:
“The reason it feels like it needs more moisture is NOT because it lacks moisturizing ingredients , as you can clearly read on the panel, it is rich in emollient ingredients. (butters ,waxes and oils.) We needed to make a lipstick that is luxurious and truly natural, as well as VERY long lasting in color and creaminess. I believe we have achieved that. Bobbie Brown is the line I adore and I used her products as a prototype in terms of feel, texture and color payoff. I think we did a great job in creating a natural prestige version of our own that is more than comparable.”
I definitely must agree with Lori here…..it might be that I am just not used to lipstick! I also really loved the long-lasting rich color it allowed me to have. The Almond Cream shade is a lovely nude shade that gives you a very natural look. Right now, there are 8 lovely shades to choose from. Another fabulous part of LipFacts lipstick is that it contains all natural ingredients such as jojoba seed oil, shea butter, and vitamin E to name a few.

Lipfacts leaves out toxic and chemical ingredients. Lipfacts Naturally Elegant Lipstick contain absolutely no mineral oil, lead, petrolatum, dyes, lakes, and parabens. Remember, we ingest our lipstick and if we do this, we should be using products we can eat! Lipfacts by Lori gives women a better choice and proves that your health does not have to be compromised for beauty.
Stay natural…stay beautiful…go green!
