Here are three more shades from Virginia Olsen’s Pure Organic lipstick range! I posted a few weeks ago the first one I got to try which is Pinky Posh, read more about it here. For this post I will show you Crimson Geek, Classy Coral, and Divaluscious.
Virginia Olsen Pure Organics Lip Crème is formulated with all-natural ingredients which provide long lasting color and natural moisture that are safe to use even for those with delicate lips. It delivers natural pigments in a traditional lipstick shape, yet maintains its organic integrity.
I really love the cylinder shape of the tube! I find it unique from the common round ones we usually see. And the black casing adds to the overall elegant feel.
Aside from the label printed at the bottom, it also has a “window” at the top showcasing the shade for convenience purposes.
Okay, I will stop talking about the packaging. Now on to the swatches!
From left to right (under natural lighting, no flash): Divaluscious, Classy Coral, and Crimson Geek.
Virginia Olsen Organic Lipstick Swatches
Let us start first with Crimson Geek.
I. LOVE. IT. You probably know by now that I am not the biggest fan of pink. But this is an exception. This shade of pink matches my skin tone better than baby pink ones. If you are medium skin tone like me, avoid pinks that are too cool or light, and pastel shades. Moreover, Crimson Geek has satin or creamy finish with opaque coverage. Plus points also for its staying power! I can eat greasy food and drink and still this will not budge off!
Me with Crimson Geek. Yes, I am quite surprised I found a pink shade that I really like!
Next is Classy Coral.
This one is kinda frost which I cannot really quite figure out how to work with, without looking like I have just eaten a cake or something. The color payoff is nice, as the rest of VO lipsticks are, but unfortunately the frost finish just doesn’t suit me.
Or it does? I dunno, haha! Anyway this is just my first impression. I will give this another shot in the coming days. After all, coral is my next fave shade for lipstick next to nude ones.
And lastly, Divaluscious!
Divaluscious is this rich red creme lipstick that is so easy to glide on the lips. Most of my red lipsticks are matte and can be very drying, but this one is so soft and moisturizing on the lips. Off the tube it looks like orange, my apologies cos my camera did not register the color very well.
But applied on the lips it looks like this:
Intense red that is not for the faint-hearted! I think this red is universally flattering, whether you are fair or dark.
The color payoff and coverage of these lipsticks are great! And the best part is that these are pure organic lipsticks, meaning it is made from 100% all-natural ingredients – Castor Oil, Beeswax, Carnuba Wax, Sunflower Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Kaolin, Carrot Powder, Roseship Seed Oil, Annatto Seed Powder, Cocoa Powder, Turmeric Powder, Lemon Peel Extract, Rosemary Leaf Extract, and Grapefruit Seed Extract.
No lead means happy lips!
