To this date, I own fewer than 10 true lipsticks.

Sure, I have a few lippies that are housed in lipstick-like containers, but the formulas are more “gloss stick” or extremely sheer for a real lipstick.

While I do prefer a beautiful tinted lip color, a shiny gloss or something in between, I’m warming up to the idea of true lipsticks (even wore one in yesterday’s outfit post!) as a statement-making part of my beauty wardrobe.

One new lipstick that appeals to my love for light color + staying power is DeVita’s Absolute LIPS Natural Sheer Flower Wax Lipstick.

Sadly, my local Whole Foods doesn’t carry DeVita, so this was my first experience with the brand’s cosmetics offerings. The Absolute LIPS collection is well-edited (just five pretty shades), and I received “Pink Diamonds” to test.

If I were to choose, I’d probably lean more toward the deeper berry tones a la “Sanguine Angel” and “Twilight Plum,” but I’m glad “Pink Diamonds” came my way — sometimes the colors you avoid turn out to be the prettiest to wear!

It’s a gorgeous, slightly dusty rose that eliminates my need to dab a bit of RMS Living Luminizer in the middle of my lips for depth. The slight mica shimmer in this lipstick catches the light beautifully and creates an illusion of fullness to even the thinnest of lips.

Instead of an overly creamy or slippery feel, DeVita Absolute LIPS Natural Sheer Flower Wax Lipstick has the perfect soft, wax consistency for those who aren’t used to wearing lipstick all the time.

The clean ingredients, including a larger number of oils and waxes, make for an incredible feeling lipstick that doesn’t budge or bleed and isn’t fussy to apply.

Here’s what’s inside DeVita Absolute LIPS Natural Sheer Flower Wax Lipstick in “Pink Diamonds”:

Macadamia seed oil, castor seed oil, jojoba seed oil, candelilla wax, carnauba wax, beeswax, sunflower seed oil, avocado oil, orange peel wax,  sweet orange oil, tuberose flower wax, rose wax, jasmine wax, grape seed extract, avocado butter, vitamin C, bisabolol, natural vanilla flavor, vitamin E, mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides

So, bottom line, would I purchase additional DeVita Absolute LIPS Natural Sheer Flower Wax Lipsticks? Yes!

But first, I need my local Whole Foods to stock it! DeVita goddesses, can you please make that happen for me? (You know my ZIP code!)
