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?

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.
