Inika Mineral Lipstick in Electric Red

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 16 - 2011

Originally intended for my red lip series, Inika Mineral Lipstick in Electric Red is formulated with natural shea butter and jojoba oil and prides itself on being a completely natural and vegan lipstick.

I say ‘originally intended’ because once I applied it to my lips, I could see that it wasn’t really a fit for my red lip series what with it not really being red n’all.

Inika Cosmetics are an Australian brand boasting over 79 permanent products in their lineup.  All natural products are guaranteed to be completely free from petrochemicals, fillers, talc, bismuth oxychloride, GM ingredients, parabens, preservatives, mineral oils, phthalates and fragrances.  That’s quite a list… but usually consumers often find themselves making compromises in terms of pigmentation or wear when it comes to natural products….

Inika’s Electric Red* is indeed lacking in pigmentation.  While this will disappoint some, others will be delighted to find a more wearable version of a strong shade.  I can’t help but feel that with a name like “Electric Red”, I want something a little bolder to translate to my lips.

It has the prettiest metallic sheen… and in truth, I’m actually quite delighted to find such a wearable warm red that neither makes me look like a clown, nor a cheap tart.  It’s quite an unusual shade and perfect for summer.  Texture-wise, it’s quite hard but softens up as the warmth of your lips encourages the mix to spread.  Once on, it feels light and comfortable.  Despite the natural ingredients, I can’t say that I found it particularly moisturising but it definitely didn’t dry my lips out either.

If you’re looking for light, wearable shades to suit all skintones, take a closer look at the Inika Cosmetics range of highly wearable lipsticks.

Inika Mineral Lipstick in Electric Red is priced at £12.77 and available to buy online from the Inika Cosmetics website.

    What a pretty color! I’d have thought it would be really red, but it isn’t!

    Shame the colour doesn’t transfer onto the lips because it’s a gorgeous red colour in the tube. Oh well.

    Your eyebrows look great here – threading? New product? x

    • Hi Kim,

      Revoking access to the tweezers seems to be doing the job for thickening out the sparse bits! I’m getting them threaded (£7 a time) once every 6 weeks and just plucking inbetween and well away from the actual shape.

    That looks lovely on you!

    It looks wonderful on you. A truly gorgeous shade!

  12. Renee says:

    Oh my, I don’t like lipstick (very, very picky) but this color is gorgeous! I am almost tempted to try it. 🙂

  13. Vijaya says:

    Definitely not a very ‘electric’ looking color. I like your hair in that last photo, by the way!

    I just saw Inika on QVC. They had the most amazing deal on eyeliners. One of the green eyeliners was the most intense colour. I noticed they are back on QVC at 9am, 4pm and 8pm on Monday. I am kicking my self I did not by it last night.. Jenny
