Ainsel Lipsticks Review & Swatches

I've fallen in love with artsy beauty brand, Ainsel. Thanks to their unique twist on the way they see traditional make up, their lipsticks really are something special. 

Ainsel makes their lipsticks* in small batches - using sustainable techniques - and are all hand crafted, so each lipstick is one of a kind, and there's a lot to love. From the quirky transparent packaging adorned with adorable illustrations, to the incredible formula. The lipsticks are intensely creamy and have a beautiful slip to them when they're applied. I've never experienced any drag or skipping, and it's completely opaque with one swipe.
The colours are richly pigmented, making even the nude shades punchy, because the colour is so stunningly saturated. They have what I'd say is a demi-matte finish. They don't have shine but they're not completely matte either, it's more like a plush, velvety finish (I think you can see what I mean quite nicely in the swatches below) They've very soft and very comfortable to wear, you can pretty much forget you're wearing lipstick altogether because they're so light! 

I'm now an avid Ainsel fan! I think their take on beauty is really interesting and a breath of fresh air in a market where you can barely keep up with new launches, and at this point, there's not a lot of difference in them, all the major brands seem to have the same offerings these days. It's nice to have something a little stand-out in my make up stash!

Do go and have a peek at to get a feel for what they're about.

  1. This is a new brand to me, but these look fabulous! I love the ethos and the packaging, and the not-quite-matte finish of the lipsticks gives the colours a beautiful depth.

  2. These colours are gorgeous! I've never heard of this brand but I definitely want to try them now!
