So recently I got to review some of Mellow cosmetics products.
I was quite intrigued by the fact that they are Vegan and cruelty free. I don’t actually own lot of Vegan cosmetic products but I am slowly getting to a point where I do try and go for something that is natural and cruelty free. So when the prospect of trying Mellow Cosmetics came around I was really excited!
Another point that goes in Mellow’s favour is that their make up is Paraben free. Paraben is a type of preservative that increases the shelf life of cosmetic products so they can survive longer. However, when you use these products regularly, they can enter your body through your skin. Parabens are believed to disrupt hormone function by mimicking oestrogen which could lead to cancer and reproductive issues.
A point to note would be that the Lip pencil is a gel lip pencil which basically means it just glides on your skin. The shades i am using there are Gel Lip Pencil in Rose and the Creamy Matt Lipstick in Posh.
You can see the lipstick and the lip pencil in action in the video below.
The pigment is really rich and the texture of the lipstick indeed is creamy as it suggests on the packaging .
I have used several matte lipsticks and lip paints which tend to dry your lips after use even if you apply lip balms first. But I am quite pleasantly surprised with the creamy texture of this lipstick. I think mellow have done a great job on this. Initially I thought this lipstick won’t be a long stay because it is creamy, but I stand corrected. I wore this lipstick all evening and even after dinner the colour was intact! And it doesn’t dry my lips. I have to say I am quite happy.
I have to say i have been on the hunt for a matte lipstick in a nude shade for a really long time and i am really impressed with the creamy matt lipstick by Mellow in the shade Posh.
Some other shades i love on their website are Liquid Lip paint in Auckland
Lastly Mellow are based in Australia but they ship worldwide and it took about 10 days for my package to arrive which is good considering they say international orders are delivered in 14 days.
