LOVE this lipstick! And it's for a good cause--check it out!

I'm really, really excited about this post today, folks.  I'm so glad I get to share with you a review of Radiant Cosmetics lipsticks, and tell you about this amazing company.

Started just last year by an amazing lady, Radiant's purpose is to end human trafficking with profits from the sale of high quality cosmetic products.  There's a pretty strong connection there, actually--the cosmetics industry generates $170 billion annually around the world, and human trafficking victims are made up of 80% women and girls.  By shopping consciously at great companies like this, we can help make a difference for victims in the US and abroad.  Radiant partners with anti-human trafficking organizations and donates 20% of its profits to their efforts.

If that wasn't enough reason, check out their makeup selection!  And great prices!!  A lot of mineral makeup choices, as well as eye makeup and liners and such in beautiful colors.  And, something I now have personal experience with, quality lipsticks!!


Nicole sent me a few shades of red to try--I've been searching for the perfect red for ages now!  Can you all help me pick the best shade for me?  Here are the ones I tried:

1. Flamenco! (matte)

2. Poppy! (moisturizing--feels soooo silky and smooth. Love it!)

3. Madrid! (matte)

4. Park Avenue! (moisturizing)

I originally thought the bright, orange-ey red of Flamenco was my fave, but now I'm leaning toward 2. or 3., Poppy or Madrid!  And I do love love love the texture of Poppy, one of the moisturizing lipsticks.  Which color do you like best???

I gotta say, these are really great quality lipsticks.  I love the smooth feel of the moisturizing ones, and they stayed on really well.  They feel so good to wear, despite the affordable price tag!  Next time you treat yourself to some makeup, Radiant is a great place to shop.  Great stuff, and your money goes to a good cause.  Win-win!

I really like following them on Facebook, too--updates about Nicole's travels and projects like the "Kissing Slavery Goodbye" campaign.  Check them out on Twitter as well!

  3. Madrid, It just suits your hair and skin color beat, as far as I can tell in the lighting. It looks similar to russian red by MAC which I love, so I might be biased.

  14. They're all really pretty - but hard to tell the difference with the indoor lighting. I'd love to see them in natural light~! ;-)

  19. Flamenco or Poppy. The matte vs shine was hard to read in the photos but both of the brigher colors are great for your complexion! Madrid seemed a bit dark to me, good for a professional setting perhaps.

    1. Thanks! The matte vs. shine is I think mostly just the texture/how it goes on. The moisturizing (shine) ones are so nice!
