I may have a little bit of a makeup addiction, specifically, shopping for makeup. I love it. So, when Jess from Love For Lacquer became an ambassador for BeautyKind and offered up a chance to try the site, I was excited. Not only do they sell some amazing cosmetic brands, they do it with a positive message and a charitable donation!
I am hard pressed to turn down a lippie, so I grabbed two from brands I'd never tried before: Doucce and Rouge Bunny Rouge.
I love lip stains for their staying power. I selected Doucce Luscious Lip Stain in 607 Red Glimmer ($26.)
It's not really red - it's a light watermelon-pink color. And, it's matte, so I'm not sure why it's called 'glimmer'. It smells like cupcakes, but not obnoxiously so. The package comes with the matte lip color, and a lip gloss. The wand comes clear, but I forgot to take a picture before I touched it to the color... oops.
I don't know that it really stained my lips, but it was comfortable, and lasted longer than a creamy lipstick. The gloss wears only a short while, but it's not sticky. The wand is really pointy and sharp, though. I hope it softens up a little after a few uses.
The packaging is elegant, with its slanted, chrome cap and substantial glass tube, and it definitely reads high-end. I'm just not that excited about needing two tubes to get one look. It looks good matte, though, so the gloss isn't necessary.
Word of Mouth ($24), another watermelon-ish color (I didn't realize they'd be so similar! WoM is deeper and has a different finish than Red Glimmer, though.)
In addition to the great brand selection and quick shipping I experienced with BeautyKind, I love that they put positive energy out into the world. This positive message about beauty is printed on the inside of the shipping box:
They also have a selection of charitable organizations that you can pick from to receive 5% of the proceeds from your purchases. If they don't have the organization you want to support, you can ask them to add it for you! Now that's beauty with a conscience!
If you'd like to try BeautyKind through my invitation link HERE, you'll get a $25 credit to start shopping with! They have a BeautyFund, where you get back 1% of what you spend, and what 5 circles of your invitees (your friends, their friends, their friends, and so on) spend in points, too. That's a lot of benefits for buying a lipstick!
