As my hair has gotten lighter I have become increasingly aware of the benefit, ease and statement of a great lip color. Any excuse to research and experiment with a new product, I knew I found something special when I first discovered Rituel de Fille. Their mystical-inspired design, unique approach to creating products and variety of bold colors really stood out and I couldn’t wait to experience them firsthand.
Founded by the three Ramos sisters, these lip colors are formulated in-house using the fewest possible ingredients. Their products are 99% natural, handcrafted without parabens, phthalates, synthetic dyes, or synthetic fragrances and never tested on animals. I am so impressed with the quality of these products and that they are able to get such intense, bold colors that also moisturize using only natural ingredients.
From the moment you open the box there is a definite sense of magic surrounding the detail that goes into each step, from the all-black packaging to the pigmented color. I feel like a total badass witch (in the best way!) when wearing these colors and will definitely continue to incorporate them into my looks day and night.
Enchanted Lip Sheer: LOVE ACHE
This lip sheer is slightly more subtle and translucent than the lipsticks although with a few coats quickly turns into a more substantial color. It is a warm red that I have been reaching for on days when I want a less intense red lip. I always exfoliate and moisturize my lips beforehand (this goes for any lip color I am using) but on days when I am in a rush, it is moisturizing enough that I can skip that step and just apply. I found the color lasted for a few hours before becoming more of a light lip stain.
Enchanted Lip Sheer: DATURA
This semi-matte lip sheer is a blush pink and two coats have been my go-to day look. As I mentioned above I always exfoliate + moisturize my lips beforehand so it goes on even smoother and I found that every few hours I reapply to keep the color vibrant. I highly recommend Datura for an every day pink!
Forbidden Lipstick: WRITTEN IN BLOOD
Written in Blood is an intensely saturated and vibrant blood red that is not for the faint of heart! When I first put it on I think I said “whoa” out loud. I personally like it blotted down a bit for an evening lip stain. It really pops and is the perfect statement lip for the upcoming fall season.
Forbidden Lipstick: LOVE IN MADNESS
This semi-matte lipstick is a bright, berry color that is highly pigmented (they do not mess around with their color formulas)! I don’t usually gravitate towards berry-inspired lip colors but I fell in love with this one. I have been saving it for nights out and special events when I really want my lips to pop. A swipe of mascara, concealer under the eyes and I am out the door.
