Monthly Mini Reviews: My April Green Beauty Picks from Love Lula

love lula ere perez hurraw rms beauty natural skincare reviews
If you are not familiar with this series then let me explain. Every month I have the opportunity to select products from Love Lula. I then test them out for a 3/4 week period and write up my thoughts. Here's what I picked from the site in April.

Ere Perez Rich Olive Oil Lipstick – High Tea
I absolutely love this lipstick and I’m super happy I took the plunge. It’s described as a “shimmer pink-melon” and for me it’s a bright and daring pink, really out of my comfort zone at first wear. I like that even the lightest swipe over my lips will give a good colour pay off and the formulation is very comfortable on the skin. Ere Perez is fast becoming my favourite makeup brand. If you would like to see a swatch check out my previous article on my lipstick collection. Most of the Ere Perez range is suitable for Vegans but the lipsticks do contain beeswax.

Hurraw Black Cherry Tinted Balm
Sadly this has been a fail for me. I love the flavour of Black Cherry but the tint is disappointing. I’m not a red lipstick wearer so I was hoping for a subtle equivalent but this has barely any colour pay off for me. You know I love Hurraw balms as I’ve mentioned them many times so I’m not holding back here and being true to my feelings. Hurraw balms are suitable for Vegans.
Ere Perez Rich Olive Oil Lipstick High Tea RMS Beauty Swift Shadow Sunset Beach SB43
RMS Beauty Swift Shadow – Sunset Beach SB-43
Ordering makeup online is very tricky because colours do appear differently on screens. I end up comparing on every available device before ordering. Sunset Beach SB-43 didn’t end up being quite as expected but I’m still happy with it. I tend to have red/purple tones to my eyelids and this neutralises the colour making an excellent base. I’m also very happy to wear this shadow on its own but I don’t think other people would notice it on me. I would describe the colour as a pale shimmery gold/beige but I've seen other sites refer to it as "crushed pearl". I think it might stand out nicely on a darker skin tone. Staying power is a tricky one to judge because I’ve hooded eyes and shadows always slide and settle in the creases no matter what I do, with or without primers. RMS pressed shadows are suitable for Vegans but you will find beeswax in other products.

Sukin Sensitive Calming Night Cream
In 2012 I reviewed the cleanser from Sukin sensitive range so I was already familiar with the product line when I selected the night cream. The formulation is extremely rich and feels lovely on my naturally dry skin. You need the smallest amount and even after four weeks I’ve barely made a dent in the 120ml pot making it awesome value for money. In terms of ingredients it’s a winner for me because there are no essential oil allergens to worry about. My only minor criticism with the scent is the vanilla (which I adore) has an underlying whiff of something reminiscent of antibacterial creams and I can’t quite put my finger on it. It comes and goes so I can live with it. I also realise that it might just be my sensitive sense of smell, allergies do that to you. I’m happy to continue using this night cream as my skin feels lovely and soft in the morning. Sukin is a Vegan brand.
