Haf Mineral Makeup Natural Lipstick
Honni from Haf Mineral Makeup was kind enough to send me some products to review. Haf Mineral Makeup is an Australian company specialising in mineral cosmetics that help not hinder the skin.
I received two lipsticks to try, Berry Natural and Pale Roses.
This is Berry Natural. It's the perfect matte winter lip colour. I've been using this a lot since I received it and I'm loving it. The texture is interesting, it's matte and long lasting without being drying or uncomfortable.
These lipsticks are long wearing and adaptable. One layer gives a light wash of colour very similar to a lip stain and several layers gives a matte, long lasting colour.
The top swatch is two layers and the bottom swatch is one layer.
The colour shown above is Pale Roses. This is a great colour to use over the top of dark colours that I want to lighten up, and to give flat lipsticks a shimmery finish.
Haf lipsticks are fragrance and flavour free. These are the first mineral lipsticks I've tried and I really like them. Unlike other matte lipsticks I've tried they don't dry my lips at all. They have great pigment and the colour lasts for ages before I need to reapply. I've found myself reaching for Berry Nice nearly every day since I received it as it's such a beautiful colour.
Would I buy these? Yes.
