Brand: NVEY ECO
Range: Hydrating Lip Lustre
Shades: Cristal & Amour Rose
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • NVEY ECO have revamped their packaging of Hydrating Lip Lustres into regular lipgloss tubes & also revamped their 10 shades.
  • The entire NVEY ECO makeup range is Nature and NSF Organic certified, and their lipglosses are chemical-free, with organic  beeswax, sweet orange extract and Vitamin E.
  • Cristal is completely sheer with fine illuminating particles, Amour Rose is a peony pink with shimmers.
  • Aside from being moisturising and light-reflecting, there are no particular sculpting properties (eg. line smoothing, lip re-shaping or plumping)
  • Verdict: Other than being “green”, I am struggling to see why one should fork out a hefty $29.95 AUD for this gloss.  At least with the previous shade range where I featured “Ruby” (no longer available), the gorgeous 3-dimensional metallic plum shade was unique & not easily dupeable by other brands. I suggest the brand either works on their formula or shades (or both) to make it worth our money.

RRP: $29.95 AUD

Brand: NVEY ECO
Range:  Advanced Care Lip Colour
Shades: 359 & 363
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • NVEY ECO is an Australian organic makeup brand launched in 2005 that takes “green” cosmetics to the next level of perfection.
  • Free of parabens, petrochemicals or synthetic fragrances. Not tested on animals & made in Australia.
  • Advanced Care Lipstick are sheer lipsticks formulated with organic ingredients such as soothing safflower, beeswax, shea butter and Vitamin E
  • Available in 16 shades, 359 is a sheer frosty pink and 363 is a sheer lustrous orange.
  • The texture is a little stiff in the tube & needs to be worked into the lips to warm up the lip conditioning ingredients.  The upside is that this achieves a semi-matte finish that’s long wearing.
  • Verdict:  Compared to Zuii Organic lipsticks (which are creamier & more pigmented), Nvey Eco’s shade range is more on trend, brighter, sheerer but both equally lack in moisture and accentuate lip lines.  If you insist on wearing organic, I recommend layering on a top coat of gloss over this to smooth out the surface.

RRP: $29.95 AUD

  •  NVEY ECO is an Australian organic makeup brand launched in 2005 that takes “green” cosmetics to the next level of perfection.
  • Free of parabens, petrochemicals or synthetic fragrances.  Not tested on animals & made in Australia.
  • Lip Lustres are lip lacquers that are rich in lustrous pigment and high in shine, and comes with an eco-friendly doe wand applicator (that’s unnecessarily long).
  • The texture glides incredibly smoothly & feels nourishing at the same time due to the organic beeswax.
  • There’s absolutely no stickiness, but there is a subtle organic taste which I’m ok with.
  • Available in 10 shades, Ruby is a metallic plum.
  • Verdict: Two thumbs up for a high performing organic lip gloss that manages to deliver on quality, comfort and a gorgeous shade all in one.  The metallic plum is simply divine & perfect for nights out or the festive season.

I’d be happier with the packaging if the lid wasn’t soooo loooong.

It’s not often I fall in love with plum or metallic shades, but there’s just something different about Ruby that screams appeal.

Swatches a little lumpy on my arm, but rest assured it goes on smoothly on lips.
