Greetings from the Dark Side! :D

  Review

 These are the first Indie lipsticks I have tried and I am loving them so far!
PROS:
-Individually hand-made, 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
-Fairy Folk smells AMAZING! Like a vanilla/white chocolate smell. Yum!
- Both lipsticks glide on smoothly.
-They are pigmented in just 1-2 swipes.
-They are VERY comparable to MAC lipsticks in formula, Fairy Folk is even better.
-Lasting time is about 3-5 hours.
-Fairy Folk suits my skin tone so well! It is neutral enough for every day wear.
(it is now one of my absolute favorite lipsticks!)

CONS:
-Not the cheapest lipsticks; about the same price as MAC lippies.
-Damsel is not the best looking color on my skin-tone and it can be a bit drying.

If you want to support small businesses, you want vegan/cruelty-free makeup, then I HIGHLY suggest you check these out. I am a fan of MAC lipsticks and I think these are really comparable! I really hope Laura makes more shades because these are simply wonderful!

Ratings
Fairy Folk: 10/10
Damsel:  8/10
