Since when did Antipodes do lipsticks?! I know I have been out of the beauty game for a little & I haven’t really been forced on what most brands – especially skincare – have been launching but as a self-appointed lipstick-aholic, really feel like I have dropped the ball here. I’m so lucky that Antipodes decided to send me 3 lipsticks from the Antipodes Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick range because I’m sure I would have been COMPLETELY clueless that these Antipodes Lipsticks were even available.

The Antipodes Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick Range- £19.99 via Beauty Expert UK – is a 12 lipstick range that has been formulated natural, edible ingredients like Beeswax (acts as an anti-bacterial), Shea Butter,  Jojoba oil, Avocado oil; to create a collection that was so ‘healthy’ you could ‘almost eat them’ – but please don’t eat them. Apparently a woman can ingest as much as three kg worth of lipstick into her body by absorbing it through the skin of her lips, or by swallowing it when she eats or drinks. Personally I feel like this number would be MUCH higher for me and the beauty bloggers I know, so for Antipodes to launch a range that contains ingredients that have health benefits, is a particularly good move on their part.

I have had a bit of time to test these lipsticks so I feel confident enough to give an overview on this entire range, so if you are interested in how these “healthy” lipsticks perform – keep scrolling.

 

Antipodes Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick in Oriental Bay Plum

Ultra-rich in Evening Primrose Oil and Calendula oil, the Antipodes Oriental Bay Plum Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick – £19.99 via Beauty Expert – is a dusty-plum colour with a neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. This lipstick contain low low levels of an FDA-approved colour pigments obtain a added for vibrant colour pay off that sat very comfortably on my lips.

I found the consistency of this Antipodes lipstick to be lightweight, creamy (without being slippery), and comfortable to wear but I really struggled with its application.

On my lips, the Antipodes Oriental Bay Plum Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick lasted roughly 5 hours.

Antipodes Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick in Queenstown Hot Chocolate

The Antipodes Queenstown Hot Chocolate Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick is a muted, medium pinky-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. On the lips, this Antipodes lipstick has a lightweight, creamy texture that feels so comfortable to wear.

I actually found this lipstick a bit awkward to apply as I had to vigorously swipe the bullet across my lips to obtain the semi-opaque coverage. Although I didn’t notice it at the time, looking at the swatch picture of me wearing this lipstick I can see that I did not build enough layers as my swatch of the Antipodes Queenstown Hot Chocolate lipstick looks a bit patchy.

On my lips, the Antipodes Queenstown Hot Chocolate Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick lasted roughly 5 hours.

Antipodes Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick in West Coast Sunset

I really have an unhealthy obsession with red lipsticks. I think my makeup collection is starting to reach maximum capacity, which isn’t great as I haven’t even started to uploaded them all to my swatch gallery! As I’m such a red-lipstick lover, I really had high hopes for the Antipodes West Coast Sunset Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick – £19.99 via Beauty Expert – as this deep crimson lipstick has such a lovely, moisturising formulation and was so comfortable to wear during the course of the day HOWEVER it was so difficult for me to get an even, opaque finish.

I normally apply my makeup on the train to work – a girl has to maximise my time – and although it takes a lot for me to feel self-conscious, I will admit that I didn’t enjoy the weird looks I received while I attempted . . . struggled . . . OK . . . FOUGHT with this lipstick to obtain a non-patchy finish. Once applied, I had no problems and found that it lasted until lunchtime but I have to admit that I didn’t want to reapply this lipstick.


Although I do feel that the Antipodes Lipstick range does fill a gap in the market for ‘healthy’, organic makeup personally I am not 100% convinced about this range as the pigmentation, application and longevity of the lipsticks does not correlate to it’s price-point. I honestly feel that there much better lipsticks on the market at a cheaper price point, so I would only recommend this range if you were planning to completely re-haul your make-up collection for more environmentally friendly products.

Each lipstick from the Antipodes Moisture Boost Natural Lipstick range costs £19.99 and are available to purchase from Beauty Expert UK
