Eye Of Horus Bio Lipsticks Review

08/08/2018

Today is a shorter post as I want to share with you my favourite lipstick formula. The Eye Of Horus Bio Lipsticks are cruelty free, vegan and 98% natural. The Goddess Bio Lipsticks are packaged in eco friendly, recyclable and biodegradable packaging. Eye Of Horus Cosmetics are one of my favourite brands as they’re Australian, cruelty free and make products that are amazing quality. You can read my blog posts on other Eye Of Horus Cosmetics – Eye Of Horus Cosmetics Goddess Pencil Review and Eye Of Horus Brow Define Review. You can buy the Eye Of Horus Bio Lipsticks in selected retailers, on the Eye Of Horus website and from Flora and Fauna (affiliate – affiliate links don’t cost you anything but do help me to continue running this blog).

The Eye Of Horus Bio Lipsticks are very pigmented, and have a creamy formula that doesn’t sink into fine lines or dry out my lips. They dry down to a stain-like finish after a couple of hours of wear, so they don’t ever appear to be patchy and are really easy to reapply. The lipsticks contain “nourishing bio active ingredients” and “a naturally sourced marine botanical that promotes nourishment to the lip tissues for a plumping effect”. The marine botanical is Dictyoperis Oil which is made from sea algae. The lipsticks also contain Sunflower Oil, Castor Oil and Olive Oil with added vitamin C for hydration. Candelilla Wax and Carnauba Wax are included to create the creamy finish.

The range includes 6 shades at the moment. Artemis Nude, Inanna Honey, Venus Pink, Cleo Plum, Freya Rose and Aurora Peach. I always forget the full names and just tend to call them by the colour name, like pink and plum. I own three of the colours, Pink, Honey and Plum. Pink is my favourite as I love pink lip colours but all three are beautiful. The next on my list to get is Rose. Peach and Nude are a bit too warm for my very fair pink skin so I would love to see the shade range expanded – a nude pink would be perfect for me. I went to my local stockist and swatched all 6 colours so that you could see how they compare.

Eye Of Horus have shown sneak peaks of products they will be releasing soon. One product is a lip liner (which I’m really excited about) and the other seems to be another lipstick formula called velvet lips – I really hope they’re like the bio lipsticks when it comes to moisturisation and appearance with lip lines.

Update – Eye Of Horus have also released a red Bio Lipstick called Vesta Red.

If I’m going to wear a lipstick I automatically reach for my Eye Of Horus Bio Lipsticks. I’ve found it really hard to find a creamy formula that doesn’t accentuate dryness or fine lines, but the Bio Lipsticks don’t do that. The lipsticks eventually dry down to a stain like effect, so they never look patchy, and they are really easy to reapply over the top of what’s already there. The eco friendly packaging really makes these cruelty free and vegan lipsticks stand out to me. I love buying products from brands that care about both the animals and the environment. If you haven’t tried the Eye Of Horus Bio Lipsticks, you really should. Everyone I know that has tried them loves them too. You can find stockists that have samples to swatch on the Eye Of Horus website. You can also buy the products online directly from there, or you can buy them from Flora and Fauna (affiliate). If you want to get my new blog posts sent to your inbox, then sign up to email updates. You can also find me on social media – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Have you tried the Eye Of Horus Bio Lipsticks? Are they something you want to try soon? Which shade is your favourite?

Love, Alinta

  • It’s been 6.5 weeks since my first Pfizer vaccination and 3.5 since my second, but I still feel like death warmed up. This isn’t surprising. My immunologist, GP and I all knew I would suffer, but that doesn’t make it easier to deal with. This isn’t a covid vaccine specific reaction, I react to all vaccines in the same way. I was out of action for 2 weeks after my meningococcal vaccine last December and most people don’t have any problems with that vax. My vaccine reactions are specific to only me, because of my unique immune deficiencies. My immunologist has never come across anyone else with the combination of immune deficiencies that I have. Unfortunately, one of my worse deficiencies is that of Memory B Cells, which means I don’t make immunity to many vaccines, and when I do, it doesn’t last for long. I still get vaccinated despite this, because it matters. So the point of this post - please get your covid vaccination when you are eligible to. Many vulnerable people like myself are relying on herd immunity and we’re just not going to get there if everyone doesn’t do their part. I didn’t get a pretty sticker but the potential of covid antibodies is better than any sticker.

  • I think I’ve made it pretty obvious that I care about Indigenous rights as well as the environment. So I am particularly interested in how Indigenous people want to combat climate change because climate change action desperately needs to be decolonised. 
Unfortunately, those who are the least responsible for climate change are the ones who ones who will suffer the most, and many Indigenous people will be more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change because of colonisation. Indigenous people and their knowledge are frequently left out of climate discussions and that needs to change. My climate change uni subject focuses on exactly that this week. 
For a long time I’ve wanted to post about this sort of thing but I haven’t known where to start. I have no idea where the level of environmental and climate knowledge is at with the general public so I would love if you could let me know how much you know about it. Then at least I have a place to start. 
Also, thanks for sticking by me, it has been very hard to get through this subject whilst going through all my health stuff plus vaccines. I have my second vax on Thursday and a few more weeks of uni and then I’ll be around more often. 
Oh and don’t forget to show up to the climate strike on Friday 😊

  • Here are the ring details as promised. I think you all knew that my ring was going to be ethical in some way. It wouldn’t be me otherwise, would it? I’ve followed @ethicaljewelleryaustralia for years now, so I’ve known for a long time that I would want them to make a ring for me. It’s something that I will be wearing everyday, so I want it to represent my values. So the ring is handmade by #EthicalJewelleryAustralia in the design I wanted. It’s a round diamond with a four prongs that look like little petals. It’s made with recycled platinum and a lab diamond. Diamond and metal mining have a lot of negative social and environmental impacts, plus a lab diamond is far more affordable than a traditionally mined diamond, which means you can reduce your impact on people, the planet and your hip pocket. I hope lab grown diamonds are the choice of the future, as it is far better for human rights and the environment to make a diamond in a lab using renewable energy, than it is to mine them from the ground, using fossil fuels and unethical labor - just look into blood diamonds if you want to know how bad it can get. I also plan on trying to have a more ethical wedding too. I’ve already found a carbon neutral venue, but I’ve got lots of research to do on everything else. Let me know if you have any ideas for a sustainable wedding.

  • With it being #EarthDay, I thought I would share some on my sustainable cleaning products. Everyone has to clean, but supermarket cleaning products don’t tend to be very eco-friendly. Here I’ve got my @ecomaxbrushes Bottle brush which is made from coconut waste products and can be composted at the end of its life - it will just leave the wire which can be recycled. There’s my Safix biodegradable scrub pad made from organic coconut fibers which can be composted when you are finished with it. And @retrokitchenaustralia biodegradable dish cloth in a cute dog print. It’s made from cotton and cellulose and can be composted when worn out. I use them with the @koalaeco Natural Multipurpose Kitchen Cleaner which is cruelty free, vegan and palm oil free and comes in 100% post consumer recycled bottles that can be recyclable when finished. I get the big refill bottles and just fill up my spray bottle. I bought all the above from @floraandfaunaau and they’re actually having 15% off eco items today, so all of these are discounted. Don’t forget to use my #floraandfaunaau affiliate code on my blog if you ever make a purchase, it helps me out. There’s lots of other ways to make regular household chores better for the environment. It can feel overwhelming to charge, but just start with small steps. When one product runs out you can replace it with a more sustainable option. One of the last things I need to change is is my laundry detergent so I’m thinking I’ll try @thedirtcompany one. I would love to hear what you think of their products if you’ve tried them. Also let know what eco swaps you’ve made in your home so that I can get more ideas. #EcoSwaps #LoveAlinta

  • I have some news. I’m engaged! As a kid/teen I never thought this would happen as I didn’t believe in love - then I got sick and worried that no one would see past my illnesses. But I have found someone who loves me for me, faults, illnesses and all and I can’t wait to marry him. 
We spent yesterday afternoon attempting to take our own engagement photos in the yard with a tripod and this is the result. Having a photographer would be so much easier but my immune system wouldn’t appreciate that. 
Oh and I’ll tell you all about my ring in another post as I designed it ☺️#engagedtomybestfriend #lovealinta

  • It’s been a while since I posted makeup, so here’s some makeup 🙃 the @meccamax Off Duty BB Cream made it into my 2020 faves blog post, and it’s still my favourite base to use on the rare occasion that I put makeup on. I’ve just been too tired to wear makeup the last couple of months. The #meccamax Off Duty BB Cream is cruelty free and vegan. It however only comes in 5 shades. I use the lightest shade Vanilla, which has a good undertone for me, but I have to mix it with the same amount of white concealer to make it light enough to use. @MeccaMaxima have said they will extend the shade range of their home brands for years now, but they still don’t sell a single base shade that I could use by itself, and I’m sure that’s the same for dark skin tones. The other criticism I have of this product is the packaging. The lack of pump makes it hard to control the amount that comes out, and I would really prefer if it were in glass as that would be easier to recycle. The actual cream itself is amazing though. The formula works so well on my skin. It’s easy to blend with a brush and doesn’t cake up or feel heavy. Have you tried this BB cream? Do you have another favourite cruelty free and vegan BB cream? #meccabeauty #crueltyfreebeauty #veganbeauty #lovealinta

  • It has been a long week here. It’s my uni mid semester break, but it hasn’t been a break at all as I’ve spent the whole week writing things for my NDIS application. I’ve written 5000 words so far and spent far more money than I should have to to access support that I need. I’m trying to get my application in before the independent assessments start. If you don’t know, the federal government is trying to force independent assessments on people applying for or reviewing their NDIS plans. They have had a huge amount of feedback explaining how bad this will be for disabled people, but they just don’t care. Disabled people are going to go without the care that they need because this government is completely ableist. Non-disabled people really need to be speaking up about this right now, because the fed government is too ableist to listen to disabled people. Allies are really needed at times like this, so please show up.

  • My chronic illness health planning blog post is up now at lovealinta.com (clickable link in bio). Managing multiple complex chronic illnesses is like having a full time job (that I don’t get paid to do), so I need all the help I can get to keep everything organised. In this picture you can see how I keep track of my appointments each month using the @chasingplannerpeace Colourful Month on Two Pages inserts and @pmdstickers. It helps with pacing to know exactly what I have coming up when, and makes sure I don’t forget to show up to any appointments. I’ve had so many appointments over the last month, plus I’m back at uni, so my body is extremely unhappy with me right now - but that’s just life when you have a long list of illnesses and specialists to go with them. Check out my blog post and let me know which inserts would help you the most with your health/medical planning. Do you have any planning tips for other chronically ill and disabled people? *press sample

  • Sending my love to everyone who has had a rough couple of weeks because of what it happening in Aus politics right now. Please prioritize your self care, it’s more important than ever at the moment. By self care, I don’t just mean applying a face mask and doing nothing else. I mean finding genuine ways to reduce the anxiety and/or depression that recent events have triggered. That might mean doing mindfulness, meditation, journaling or exercise. You can also talk to your doctor about medications that can help. Taking medication is not a sign of weakness, it’s just another tool that you can use to help. Coping is different for everyone, you need to find what works for you. The thing that has helped me the most is therapy. I have been in therapy for many many many years now, but the one thing that really helped my PTSD was EMDR. There are other techniques that can be used for PTSD too. If you’re in Melbourne, the CASA house, run via the Women’s hospital offers free services specifically for survivors of sexual assault. They also run a 24 hour counseling and support line - 03 9635 3610 that you can call any time. Nationally there is the 1800Respect line - 1800 737 732, Sexual Assault Counseling Australia 1800 211 028 and Lifeline (24 hour crisis line) 131 114. If you’re thinking about calling, please do it. I now have my PTSD well controlled, but it is harder during times like these. Getting help isn’t an immediate fix but it will make life a lot easier in the long run. You deserve help, please seek it. #ptsd #lovealinta
