GIVEAWAY! Lippy Girl Organic Mineral Blush

Lippy Girl Organic Mineral Blush in Bitch Slap
I recently acquired my first ever Lippy Girl mineral blush! You can read up on my review here. I shared the review on Twitter and the founder of Lippy Girl reached out to me, offering for me to try one of their more pigmented blushers since I noted that Tongue in Cheek was more demure. We had some email conversation and she sent me this gorgeous magenta blush named Bitch Slap to review! Darcey also filled me in on some background information about Lippy Girl which I am excited to share with you all today.
Lippy Girl is a Canadian-based, eco-friendly, organic and animal-friendly cosmetic company. Some of their products are indeed produced in China, but Darcey assured me they're made in an EcoCert compliant factory-- she herself is a former high school chemistry teacher who started the brand with savings she put aside originally to purchase a minivan!! As such, she told me she tests all of her products that come in from China to assure that they're lead-free, but has never had any issues at all with her manufacturers.
Lippy Girl is a Canadian-based company, but also has manufacturing in the United States and Australia for its lip care line! The entire lip care line in USDA certified organic, which is very exciting!
Darcey started Lippy Girl as a kitchen experiment because she wanted to create products that were safe and of high quality for her personal family and friends. She started selling her unique makeup creations to the public in October 2011, and insists that what makes Lippy Girl so popular is the fact that the quality lives up to what she wanted for her closest friends and family.
When I spoke with Darcey, I could tell how passionate she was about her brand, and to be honest it made me fall in love with her line! I already loved it for its eco-friendly ethics and high quality ingredients, but now that I see the passion behind the brand, I am a new convert! If you bundle Lippy Girl products on the official website, you get them at a discount, which is totally cool. I intend on doing a lot of Christmas shopping with her brand!

*sent for my honest review
Now, as for Bitch Slap -- it sure lives up to its name! This blush is pigmented like CRAZY! In the below swatch, you can see a heavy handed swatch and a light-handed blended swatch. As you can see, the colour is very versatile and can be as subtle or aggressive as you make it. I had to play with it a bit when applying it to my fair skin to get it to look just right, but once I got it perfect I was in love! Just like Tongue in Cheek, the wear time on this blush is fantastic. If I had to describe this colour, I would call it a magenta when heavily swatched? When blended it looks like raspberry to my eye. It is matte and perfect for the upcoming fall season!!
