MYPURE: Alva Organic Lipstick Hot Red

Today I have my second review for MyPure (who as you might remember specialises in natural and organic beauty and cosmetics products).   As you all know I am a big lipstick lover so I thought what better to review than a organic lipstick. This is one from the brand Alva who are a German company and quite big throughout Europe. I chose shade 4 called Hot Red as what is better than a simple and classic red lipstick?

Quick shot of the packaging, this lipstick comes in a traditional screw up black bullet. The lid fits nice and firmly. 

Colour wise this looks like a traditional  bright red lipstick. It looks matte the bullet which is a plus for me as I adore matte lipsticks but I don't think they tell you this on the site.

So what does it look like on?

Interestingly on the lips the lipstick is more of a pink toned red and is actually quite a unique shade in my (rather large) lipstick collection.  It dried to a semi-matte satin finish which I really like. The lipstick applied easily to lip and for a matte lipstick I felt this  was quite nourishing and not at all drying on the lips. I think this is down to all the oils in the lipstick ( Castor Oil, Apriocot Kernal OIl, Indian Pongamia Seed Oil, Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter- WOW!)

Like all matte lipsticks this does accentuate any dryness on the lips, so I would recommend using a lip scrub before applying to remove and dry or flaky skin.

The wear time on this lipstick was great I wore it for a whole day with an issue, I did have to reapply it once at lunchtine but that was more because my lips felt like they were flaking a little but even then the colour was still firmly on my lips and hadn't budged when I was eating. In all I really like this lipstick and know it will be getting alot of wear.
