An Obsession with All Things Handmade and Home-Cooked


Read My Lips (Lippy Girl GIVEAWAY!)

Makeup, hair, wardrobe, and modeling by Melisser Eliott.

Makeup is far from my field of expertise. Though fascinated by it from an early age, that intrigue never translated into successful application, and my skills remain limited to the basics. Luckily, lipstick is one cosmetic option that even I can handle, which is why finding brands that are ethical and non-toxic has been imperative. Master makeup artist Melisser Elliot gets all the credit for hooking me up with Lippy Girl, and flaunting their “Son of a Brick” Vegocentric Organic Vegan Lipstick so stunningly in the above photo shoot.

Without resorting to carmine and beeswax, add a bold splash of color to your own ensemble with shades to match any outfit, no matter how avant-garde or conventional. In case you’re not feeling quite so daring, rest assured that many shades are quite sheer with buildable coverage. Which lipstick color would you choose from the vibrant, variegated options? Let me know in a comment and you could win it, along with a tube of Extra Virgin Lip Gloss! Don’t forget to hop over and log your submission on the official giveaway form, and find more ways to rack up entries for a better chance to win big. This giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada, and will run until Thursday, May 14th. Good luck!
