Lipstick Republic Haul, Store Review & Giveaway

About a month ago I found out about a great new online store, Lipstick Republic, and I've been obsessed ever since. Lipstick Republic stocks international brands such as E.L.F., NYX, OCC and Z-palette, as well as brands I've never heard of such as Eye of Horus and Saucebox. 

I've only placed one order so far but, as I said, I'm hooked. There's so much more I want but, given that I'm doing Project Pan (I had a momentary lapse in judgement, let's just say) I decided to restrain myself. That shows a little self control, right? 

Want to know what I bought? Keep reading!

After talking to the owner of the online store, Michelle, I decided to try out the Lippy Girl Organic Lipsticks. She spoke so highly of them and, as you all know, I'm a sucker for a recommendation. I also picked up a Large Z-Palette in Black. It was so difficult to choose a colour so, in the end, I went with black so I didn't have to choose! I have so many individual eyeshadows and they take up heaps of space so this was such a great investment! I paid $22.00 for the Z-Palette and $15.00 for each lipstick.

Whilst I've only placed one order with Lipstick Republic, I'm really impressed with them and it won't be my last! I placed my order late Tuesday (22/1) afternoon and received an email early on Wednesday (23/1) saying it had been posted. My order arrived one week later (30/1) which really impressed me, especially considering there was a public holiday and I live in WA. It always takes ages for things to get to me here. 

On top of that, every question I had was answered quickly via email. For me, great customer service is so important for online stores and Lipstick Republic does not disappoint! 

*The palette came empty, of course, but I've already depotted a lot of eyeshadows and put them in! 

So far I'm really enjoying these lipsticks but I have a full review coming next week, including swatches etc. Stay tuned and remember to keep an eye out for it, especially if you think you might like the look of these colours.

Finally, Lipstick Republic were kind enough to include some products for me to share with a very lucky reader! I didn't know what they were going to include and I'm so grateful for the beautiful package I can now send to one of my readers. Just think, we'll have almost the exact same things!

The winner of this giveaway will receive the products in the photo above; Large Z-Palette in Red, Lippy Girl Organic Lipstick in Mother Pucker and Lippy Girl Organic Lipstick in Gob Smacked.

This Lipstick Republic giveaway will be open for three weeks, ending at midnight March 2, 2013.  The winner will be announced in a post that will be uploaded on March 6, 2013.

  5. I have never owned a palette like this before so its not something that I have ever had to think about but i do like the thought of space saving and something like this would be wonderful for travelling for extended periods where you wanted a great selection of colours.
    I am pretty OC so i guess i would de-pot as many of my eyeshadows as possible and would put them in colour order...grouping all the greens together, etc

  8. I've been looking at buying a Z palette for a while now! I've got a few essence blushes and eyeshadows that I could depot, and I hold off buying single eyeshadows a lot to save space - Having a Z palette means I can buy more of those!

  13. I love the idea of a Z palette. I'm currently working in a different town to where I live and am travelling and spending nights away from home a lot. Putting my eye shadows and blushes into a Z palette would make carrying my makeup around a lot easier!

  15. I would - like you have - put all my essence single shadows in it! They are so pretty, and cheap enough that if I completely mess up the depotting process and they fall apart I can replace them without crying! :)
