Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics Lipstick in De Havilland

It's no surprise that I love indie products, but I get even more excited when it's an Australian owned indie brand. Enter Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics. I had not even been aware of this brand until I was so fortunate that a lovely friend tagged me on an Instagram giveaway that she won, which meant I did, too! We were able to choose a lipstick of choice.

More about the vegan, cruelty-free brand can be found here.

The lipstick I chose is De Havilland. Described as a must-have vintage red. I must say that I have to agree. Any red lipstick lovers would adore this shade.

These lipsticks have a semi-matte finish. This one is very pigmented. I find that although it is a matte, the lipstick is creamy enough to make application easy.

What I love about these matte lipsticks are just how comfortable they are. It does not dry out my lips and although there is some transfer, it is very long lasting.

De Havilland has quickly become my favourite bullet lipstick, amazing formula, stunning shade and I'm in love!

Do you like a bold lip, or prefer natural shades?


  1. I'm a bold lip gal through & through, although I prefer wearing a more natural pinky shade during the day. When you have skin that's as pale as mine is, you can't get away with wearing cadaver nude-type shades sadly.

    1. Bold lips really suit you, Shell! I often go through shade phases.

  2. Gee I might have to get this one Indie - it's such a stunningly vibrant red, and it looks so fabulous with your glowy skin and blonde locks ♥♥♥

    1. Thank you, Kat. Oh yes, I could see you rocking this colour, hun xx
