Hi Beauties! We are so close to ending the 2015 chapter in our lives and I can’t believe it! There were so many amazing beauty finds in 2015 and I am excited to see what 2016 brings. One of the most amazing companies was born this year so of course I had to feature them before it is over! Fairy Girl Cosmetics is a 100% vegan and cruelty-free company with such amazing ethics and products! I love everything that they stand for and the quality of their products is truly top-notch.
The buzz grew fast on this brand and I am not surprised why! Fairy Girl is such a fun girly company with such positive energy. Their Instagram is full of gorgeous photos of their products, women who love and use their products, and inspirational quotes. I love following their account and seeing what they are up to! They are also SO generous and have a huge giveaway that has been going on for the past few months where they announce a new winner every Friday that will receive TWO full size lipsticks in colors of their choice. That’s a $50 value!! I was amazed to see that they were going to keep this giveaway going after their first two and I was lucky to win once myself. <3 I was contacted immediately and able to pick out my two favorite colors as my prize. I had been eyeing ‘Camden’ and ‘Cina’ for a while so I decided to go with those. They shipped out my lipsticks instantly and I received them very fast too! I was SO excited to try them out that I took photos of them right when I got home so I could start wearing and testing them out. After a few weeks, I am finally ready to share my thoughts! Keep reading below to find out more. 🙂

As you can see, there appears to be a bit of crystallization on the lipstick itself. Fairy Girl aims to use the most natural of ingredients to create these beauties including: “Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic oils of Hawaiian Coconut, Argan, Hawaiian Kukui Nut, Avocodo, Jojoba Seed, and Castor Seed” (ingredients on Fairy Girl website). Because of this, the ingredients can sometimes “cool and settle” and cause that crystallization you see. It is completely normal and I didn’t worry about it at all. In fact, I instantly thought of how a chocolate bar looks when it melts and then re-solidifies. It’s the same concept. A rep actually messaged me about it (I didn’t bring it up) and told me they were noticing this on more of their products and are now working towards reformulating their lipsticks so it doesn’t happen as much. Either way, I don’t mind! It was sweet of them to bring it to my attention though and I really appreciated that. The lipsticks work well as is but I am excited to try the new formula too!
These smell and taste (no, I didn’t EAT it- just licked my lips 😉 ) JUST like chocolate!!! YUM. I am in love. They are a bit hard at first and warm up on your lips as you apply it so definitely do a few coats to make it creamy and spreadable. The great part about these lipsticks is that they are somewhat opaque so you can apply as little or as much as you want. I feel that caters to all kinds of makeup-wearing people so that’s great! I personally love wearing these lipsticks on the thicker side. I haven’t had any problems with patchiness once applied well or too much transfer either. I notice that they last on my lips for a good couple of hours, or until I have a big meal where I wipe my mouth a lot. These definitely apply like a creamy-matte to me but do not feel heavy AT ALL. Sometimes I forget I am even wearing lipstick and I love that.
The packaging is seriously SO cute too. I love that they are a pretty metal pink and that the tops twist off instead of pull. It makes it more durable and less likely to fall off, which is a big plus to their value. Fairy Girl put so much detail into their products all the way down to the packaging it is sent in too. Mine came wrapped in pretty pink paper with an adorable flower sticker and little hearts on the lipstick tubes that read “twist don’t pull.” I don’t think I can say enough amazing things about them! They have proved to have amazing customer service and truly care about their products being extremely ethical and amazing quality. These lipsticks come in a range of colors from light to dark and they all look gorgeous on every skin tone! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Fairy Girl Cosmetics today so you don’t miss out on their generous end of the year sale! I truly believe they are worth every penny! Let me know what shades you picked up! 😉
