REVIEW: AYA Cosmetics - Lipsticks

Bare Basics Lipstick Collection by AYA Cosmetics

I was thrilled when Elizabeth, CEO of AYA Cosmetics, emailed me to say she had come across my blog and loved it! I was even more thrilled when she asked if I was willing to test out some of her lipsticks from her newly launched range!

I had never tested 'natural' lipsticks as I find natural make up to be so expensive ( I prefer saving that money for natural skincare) but imagine my delight when I found out how reasonably priced these lipsticks were - its about $16.95 (Australian Dollars) so when I worked it out at the current exchange rate of $1=R9.24, these beauties sell for about R157. Not too bad right?

{Let me tell you why they are worth it}

From the Glam side: 
they are creamy; the colour lasts and they have a subtle sweet scent

From the Green side:
They are vegan; lead-free; cruelty-free; packaged in all recyclable materials - "Our products are made without nasty additives: parabens, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances. We also avoid compromising the environment by using packaging derived from post-consumer, recycled and bio-degradable materials. This means that all of our packaging is eco-friendly – from the sleekly designed box containing the product, to the packing and wrapping materials used for its delivery to your doorstep." AYA website

The Colours:

1. The Particular Pink is perfect for when Im having one of my Barbie days ;) 
2. The Just Peachy is great when you want to add a bit of colour, I love that its not to orange, not too pink but the perfect shade of peach.
3 .The In The Buff shade is what I was mostly complimented on, perhaps as it is closest to my natural shade 
4. The Naturally Nude is great for when you want to focus on your eyes, example: if you are rocking the smokey eye look

Thank you so much Elizabeth for letting me test out these great shades!
