I think I may have discovered the ‘perfect nude’ in Green People’s new, Velvet Matte Lipstick (£15*) in universally flattering shade Damask Rose*. I wouldn’t normally be drawn to a matte formula, but after reading the press release for this soon to be launched, special edition lipstick to celebrate Green People’s 20th anniversary, I knew I wanted to put it to the test.
The shade Damask Rose is a flattering ‘your lips but better‘ nude-rose, that I’m pretty sure will work with most skin tones. If you’re more of a gloss girl, don’t let the fact it is matte put you off! Unlike some other matte formulas, this is not drying (although, will look better on well moisturised lips) and is really comfortable to wear. What impressed me most is how long lasting it is. I’d go as far as to say it lasted all day. I’m sure the colour intensity faded, but you wouldn’t know looking at my lips as it wore off evenly.
I think this looked best on me when worn with a little nude lip liner (I use Jane Iredale’s Lip Definer in Spice), as I have lost some definition around my lips.
Green People’s Velvet Matte Lipstick is enriched with sustainable beeswax and organic carnauba wax, which helps keeps your lips nourished, as well as vitamin E to soothe and soften. Of course, it is also 100% natural and certified organic.
If you feel you would prefer a more sheer look, or have particularly dry lips, then you could use Green People’s Enrich and Enhance Lip Primer* (£13), available now. This will give your lips an additional boost of hydration and also make the lipstick appear a little more sheer.
I can honestly give this a big thumbs up! Why not try it for yourself? Head over to Naturally Diddy to see some great photos of the lipstick on the lips (I failed)!
