Lippy Girl Makeup Baked Mineral Blushes

Natural makeup has come a long way in the last few years, but pressed powder products without silicones, talc, or other nasties are still pretty rare.  Add in an affordable price tag, and you're looking at even fewer options.   But, Canadian company, Lippy Girl Makeup has you covered - at least for blushes.  As the name suggests, the company's main focus is lip products, but they also sell a small range of baked mineral blushes for $16.50.   I picked up Wall Flower and Bewildered Bronze back around Mother's Day  and have been enjoying trying them out over the last couple of months.



The formula is lovely.  I did find that both blushes had a bit of a chalky top layer, but once you get past that - after the first 1 or 2 uses - they're super smooth and buttery.  The colours go on well and they blend out easily too.  They're sold as sheer blushes, and it's true that they don't pack the highest pigment punch, but I actually prefer it that way, since it gives you greater control.  (Plus, we all know I'm a little blush shy.)  The sheer finish also means that the colors are buildable, so you can achieve the slightest hint of a flush, full-on doll cheeks, or anything in between.    

I'm not sure about the entire line, but both colours I chose are completely matte.  Wall Flower is a lovely pale pink and is my new favorite everyday blush.  It looks incredibly light in the swatches below, and while it certainly makes for a more subtle cheek, I don't have any problem getting it to show up on my skin.  Perhaps not the best choice for darker skin tones, but great for light-to-medium complexions.  Bewildered Bronze is a plummy/mauvey/dusky pink.  It's the more pigmented of the two and is one of those easy-to-wear colours that I think would look great on just about anyone.




The Bottom Line
Super love!  For me, nothing beats the ease and convenience of pressed blush and Lippy Girl's baked blushes are great.  The ingredients are as clean as you can get - just minerals, kaolin clay, and jojoba oil - and the quality is excellent too.  Not to mention, how lovely are these compacts? They have the cute lippy Girl logo on top and are either the same or very similar to the ones that MAC mineral blushes come in, with a clear, domed top that easily lets you see what colour you're grabbing for.  I'm really happy to have these in my collection.

  7. Awesome post Caitie! I have a Lippy Girl lipstick, but I had never paid attention to the blushes, Bewildered Bronze is such a pretty and unique color! I'm also really digging the "vintage barbie-like" packaging, super cute :) xx

    1. Thanks! I was this close to getting a lipstick at the same time, but in the hopes of using what I already have first, I've held off for the time being. I'm a big fan of the logo too :)

  8. Bewildered Bronze looks very lovely; I've never worn a plummy shade like that before I think, I'm curious to see what it looks like on you. :)

    1. It looks a little less plum, a little more rose on the cheeks, so very wearable. I'll try to take a picture for you next time I use it!
