Review: Virginia Olsen Pure Organics Lip Creme
The first thing I noticed with these lippies was their scent. They have this odd lipstick scent that I do not really like. My nostrils are very sensitive to scents. A product should either be unscented or its scent must be really nice and light or else it can give me a headache. Eventually the scent disappears after a few minutes. I also noticed that it does not have that smooth surface compared to other lippies from big cosmetic companies. No problem with this one. It gives that authentic organic feel to it. I was afraid that these lippies might be too soft that it will melt inside my kit considering its form. Guess what, it turned out that it is hard enough to withstand the heat of Manila! The best thing about it is that it goes on with intense color with one swipe and it does not bleed despite its creaminess. I need not use any lip liners because it this is quite long lasting on me. The downside is that it can really dry up my lips. I need to moisturize and scrub prior to using these lippies or else I will end up with dry patched lips.
I also showed this lipstick to my makeup school classmates and we did the ring test to know if this lipstick contains lead. Lo and behold, when the gold ring was rubbed on a swatch of Sweet Seduction, it did not change color at all!! WOoot!!! I was so happy because the other lipstick they did a test on changed to dark grayish shade when it underwent the gold ring test.
