Liquid lip products are immensely popular now as I’m sure you all know.  I was very pleased to get this certified cruelty free and paraben free REALHER matte liquid lipstick to try along with an Expert Advice lip liner. Both products have natural ingredients and are infused with shea butter, jojoba seed oil and hyaluronic acid. The company offers eyeshadows, lipsticks, glosses and brushes too. I love the promise which is “RealHer was founded on the idea that, with each application, it can help to inspire the wearer: to be herself, to love herself, to be powerful, to rule the world. It doesn’t ask us to be perfect, to be a mother, to be a CEO, to be the perfect beautiful doll, but rather invites us to continue being ourselves, and that which defines us as an individual—and it’s liberating.” What’s even nicer is the birth of the daughter of the company’s founder influenced him to develop this brand with her in mind.   And- get this- the company donates 20% of all proceeds to charity.  

Marcia sent me I Am Loved lip liner and I Deserve The Best matte liquid lipstick that she’d received in a Boxycharm sub box. The website describes I Am Loved as a plum color and I think that description is right on the money. It glides onto your lips smoothly without any skipping. The color is very pigmented and can easily be worn as an all over lip color without an accompanying gloss or lipstick. It goes perfectly with I Deserve The Best lipstick. The website describes the color as a deep mauve. In the container the color looks more like a medium toned brownish pink. It looked that way when I first applied it to my lips. In fact, the liner was darker than the lip color upon initial application  REALHER recommends you apply the lipstick to bare lips with the wand. Allow up to 5 minutes for it to dry to its matte finish and avoid oily foods.

I have pretty dry lips so after application, I was able to see the product settle into some lip lines. Even after lining my lips with the pencil, I found it hard to ‘color within my lip shape’. I had better success when I used a lip brush and smoothed the color that way, waited the requisite 5 minutes and the product did become matte but it also became sticky. I felt it particularly if I rubbed my lips together which I tend to do. If you don’t have this habit, you won’t notice the stickiness at all.

The color seemed to darken on me to a deep mauve (just as the website stated) and matched the liner perfectly. I did avoid oily foods for lunch and there was no transfer onto my smoothie cup.

Lisa’s shades:

Marcia is the light-colored lipstick queen, so I happily tested the three darker shades of the five.  

RealHer Moisturizing Lipstick

RealHer Women Rule the World Moisturizing Lipstick

RealHer Women Rule the World Moisturizing Lipstick

Women Rule the World / Pink is a beautiful matte medium pink. It’s deeper than a Barbie Doll pink, but is still bright and feminine. This has quickly become my favorite pink lippie because it’s super creamy, pretty, and I definitely do think women rule the world!!

RealHer Be Yourself Be RealHer Moisturizing Lipstick

RealHer Be Yourself Be RealHer Moisturizing Lipstick

Be Yourself Be RealHer / Deep Red is a beautiful orangey red. I didn’t think my thin lips could wear this shade, but it’s very flattering on since it has just enough shine to give it some depth. 

RealHer I am Powerful Moisturizing Lipstick

RealHer I am Powerful Moisturizing Lipstick

I am Powerful / Wine  is probably my least favorite of the three as it’s a tad too dark for my complexion and my thin lips. If you have slightly more lush lips you will rock I am Powerful. I think it will really be striking with very pale skin or very dark skin.

It seems that lately lipstick brands are creating beautiful shades but ones that are too dark for my personal taste. That’s not the case at all with Real Her. They’ve created 5 shades that make it easy to find one that works perfectly for everyone. I love the packaging, I love the names of the lipsticks, and I love the wear of these.

I Love Myself / Nude is a peachy nude that is definitely on the light side. I can easily throw this on and go about my life knowing I’ve added some color but not enough that makes me uncomfortable. Applying a lipliner first adds more depth and can change the color to one that’s more noticeable. The look of I Love Myself is almost metallic. It’s very satiny and glistens.

I Define Beauty Myself / Mauve has become a favorite. This beautiful pink mauve is the shade I look for when I’m going out and want a lipstick that looks like I’m wearing lipstick yet still makes me feel comfortable. I think it’s a universal shade that most women could wear.

My lip picture was taken under bathroom light but in real life, it’s looks more like my swatch. Just the right amount of pink.

I Define Beauty Myself has a totally different finish than I Love Myself. This is a true cream finish that is full bodied. I feel this covers my lips beautifully and completely. It lasts several hours on me before I have to reapply.
