I am always excited when one of my go to brands Zelens brings out something new! So when these lush lipsticks came out, this feeling was intensified!

These lipsticks are jam packed with skin nourishing vitamins and nutrients: as you see from the post we’ve kind of giving you some detail on a lot of the ingredients so not bore you by repeating it now what I will tell you is this: these lipsticks are as light as air when you apply them and you actually don’t feel as though you’ve got anything on and can find yourself  checking the mirror just to make sure the pigment is still there! Let me tell you, your lips feel nourished and soft, the colour is beautiful and pure. They  stay moisturised the whole time without drying out ….what else could you ask for? Also – these lipsticks smell absolutely divine. 

What’s in it

As expected from such a science-based brand… this lipstick contains a whole host of fabulous skincare benefits which makes these luxe lipsticks extra special. Some of the active ingredients include:

Phytol: A natural active molecule derived from Black Jack. It increases the production of collagen and elastin, along with stimulating the lip renewal process by mimicking the activity of retinol – showing retinol-like activity without any irritation!

Tripeptide: This potent peptide stimulates natural collagen production, increasing lip volume and improving the texture of the lips.

Lipid Complex: This unique complex supplies major regenerating and restructuring lipids – phospholipids, sphingolipids and essential fatty acids (EFAs) from the Omega-3 and Omega-6 family. Improves lip moisture and helps to protect and repair lips.

Retinol ester: A source of vitamin A, enhancing cell communication, promotes collagen production and encourages the lip renewal process.

Ultra Filling Spheres™: A new generation spheres composed of low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid and glucomannan , a high-molecular weight vegtal polysaccharide from the plant Konjac Idevil’s tongue). These cross-linked spheres are able to penetrate the upper layers of the epidermis and absorb the water that evaporates from the deep dermis. Ultra Filling Spheres™ helps to plump up lips, smooth out wrinkles and leave lips supple with long lasting moisture.

One thing we wish is that they would expand their colour selection, but the colours they have so far are beautiful.
