Zuii Organic Lipsticks

Zuii Organic Flora Lipstick ReviewZuii Organic Lipstick Swatch Clay

Remember when I mentioned a new mystery nude lipstick in my November Favorites? Today I am revealing more about it (finally, I know). It is the Zuii Organic Flora Lipstick* that I discovered while browsing Pinterest. The swatches caught my attention immediately because (A) there were quite a few lovely nude shades (and you know I love a good nude lip), and (B) these lipsticks were labeled as certified organic.

I picked the shades Brown Sugar, Nude, Clay, and Natural. While it is not difficult to find great nude shades like these at a MAC counter, there are not many options among the green brands, so I was very excited about these lipsticks. The formula is very good. The texture is creamy and the finish is matte, (completely free of shimmer and of shine). They are quite pigmented, but not drying, however I do prefer to wear a little lip balm underneath for more moisture, (at least during this time of the year that is colder and more dry).

In the first image the shades are, in order from L to R:

Brown Sugar  is a pinky-nude with a hint of brown. It’s the perfect shade for a toned down lip, with a slightly cool tone. I find that it works well to neutralize lips if I am wearing a strong eye look (smokey eye or a graphic liner). It is probably too pale for deeper skin tones, but light-to-medium skin tones should be able to pull if off.

Nude is a very pretty shade. It looks like a 60s’ pale, peachy-pink lip. The shade reminds me of the OCC Lip Tar in Hush and MAC Hue, without the shiny finish.

Clay is a peachy shade. Similar to Ilia Beauty Funnel Of Love.

Natural is similar to Brown Sugar, but has more of a brown tone to it. It is slightly less pigmented than the others, and on my lips it does not look brown at all. It is the one I am wearing in the photo (please excuse my silly expression, but taking photos of myself while being sick & sleepy was quite challenging).

The packaging of the Flora Lipstick is very old school and reminds me of the classic Revlon lipstick tube, but it does not feel flimsy like drugstore packagings. As for the ingredients, Zuii Organic Flora Lipsticks are certified organic by many organizations in Australia (where the company is based), and also internationally (BDIH, COSMOS, Cruelty-free).

I love the range of shades that Zuii Organic created and I am already planning to pick up more in the future. I have my eye on Sheer Peach, Mandarin, and Pink Flesh. Some of these shades may be available on Amazon, but the complete collection is available at ZuiiOrganic. They retail for about $26, depending on where you purchase them.

    I adore all your posts:) Do you prefer ZUII lipsticks over the Ilia ones?

    • Thank you Jessie! I prefer Ilia’s formula, but Zuii’s shades are awesome! Have you tried any Ilia Beauty lipsticks? :)

      • Jessie Hao

        I ordered Ilia lipstick in the shade In My Room (a nude pink colour) yesterday after reading your 2013 favourites:) so I’ll try it very soon! xx

  • Call It Vanity

    Officially on the hunt for these now! I must be the only girl not really into Ilia’s packaging, my love for the old school runs deep!

    • Lol, I like them too. They remind me of the lipsticks that my mother used to use <3 and they even smell like them! :)

  • Maiju

    Zuii lipsticks are great! I own and love several shades. Their eyeshadows are also amazing! Definitely in the same league as Kjaer Weis shadows, if not even better.

    • Wow, I need to get myself some Zuii eye shadows asap then! ;)

  • shortsmallsweet

    Can’t get over how good you look in it! I have never owned a good nude lipstick, in fact lipsticks never worked for me as they make my very dry lips worse. Zuii and Ilia are both in my wish list now!

    • You’re too kind! <3
      I am currently testing out a few new products that are amazing for dry lips, and they include a nude, creamy lipstick. I hope to have a post about them soon. It may work for you! ;)

  • The Natural Junkie
