We’re guessing you know Be Organic for its handcrafted soaps and sulfate-free shampoos. Lipsticks, though? Not quite. Well, leave it to the local purveyor to change your perceptions about natural beauty! Its first-ever lipstick line is free of parabens, talc, petrolatum, and synthetic fragrance—not to mention, laced with argan oil.
Ladies, meet the Matte But Not Flat Liquid Lipsticks, a collection of 12 shades packed with natural pigments. The colors are very Filipina-friendly—think loads of earth tones punctuated by the odd summer bright.
The formula, as the name suggests, is matte but not flat! This soft, creamy blend of argan and aloe soothes your lips and manages to look three-dimensional when it sets. Expect beautiful color payoff, bouncy-smooth texture, and lips that are practically basted in moisture. Swatches below!

FEEL: The first thing you’ll notice about the Matte But Not Flat Lipstick is how thin the formula is. It’s wet, weightless, and slightly oily in comparison to the dense, whipped-cream versions of liquid lipstick we know. At first we were afraid it would be too slippery for comfort—until we realized it was the argan oil working its magic. You really experience the lip-caring power of this lipstick, because your pout simply won’t dry out!

LOOK: We were shocked by the rich, full-coverage color of this lipstick. To paint your lips from corner to corner, you’ll need no more than two coats. Do take note that formula requires a little setting time. It applies shiny at first before drying down to a cushiony matte. Feel free to rub your lips together once everything has set—the color will redistribute itself without creasing or flaking!
