Review: PHYT’S lipstick in Copper Red

PHYT’S lipsticks are great for those who have chemical sensitivities but want a lipstick with great staying power.

This is the second product I will be reviewing from PHYT’S. The first product I reviewed was the eyeshadow (here).

The outer packaging is similar to that of the eyeshadow – that is, copper cardboard packaging.

All the necessary information are printed onto the cardboard – shade name, ingredients etc

The lipstick bullet fits nicely into your hand. Again, similar to that of the eyeshadow, it’s a plastic brown housing with a rose gold band around where the lid meets the packaging. Neat fact – it’s 100% biodegradable plastic packaging.

Has the signature PHYT’S leaf logo on the cap too.


The product I was sent, Copper Red, is named perfectly. It’s a … copper red. Surprise!

Whilst the lipstick bullet doesn’t really show the copper, looking more like a brown red, when applied, it’s definitely copper red.

For some reason, when I hear the word organic associated with cosmetics, I don’t really have high hopes for it. But PHYT’S has definitely impressed. Copper Red faded into a nice tint after about 5 hours of wear which includes drinking and eating.

After about 7-8 hours, it completely faded.

One negative thing I have to say about this would be the smell. It smells really waxy but doesn’t linger upon application.

Whilst Copper Red isn’t a flattering shade on me, looking at the range, there are a couple of gorgeous rosy shades that I’d definitely think about purchasing.


From the press release, ingredients include enriching sunflower, jojoba, protective canuba and candellia waxes, vitamin E to nourish and protect the lips and pure, natural mineral pigments for a shine and colour that will enhance your smile.
