Around mid-August Dr. Hauschka is temporarily adding five new limited-edition Lipstick Novum lipsticks to its existing make-up range, and I had the pleasure of testing three of them. Tasting wine stresses me out (how do you properly do that without looking like an idiot?!) but I love to try new make-up ahead of its launch. Melissa Van Roosbroeck, make-up guinea pig at your service! Let’s have a closer look together!
The five new Lipstick Novum lipsticks are part of Dr. Hauschka’s limited-edition Play of Light collection that will be in stores around mid-August. I received three of the five new shades: n° 10 (Laid-Back Apricot), n° 11 (Astonishing Pink), and n° 13 (Sunkissed Nude). The names speak for themselves, really, but just to be clear: Laid-Back Apricot is a soft warm peachy shade, Astonishing Pink is a cold-toned bright pink, and Sunkissed Nude is a warm brownish shade. I don’t really have a favorite yet, but I do have a slight preference for the two warmer shades.
All shades are shimmery and shiny. I’m not a big fan of discoball lips, but the shimmer in the new Dr. Hauschka Lipstick Novum lipsticks is really fine and subtle and the effect is very soft and understated. It adds a bit of extra sparkle, but nothing too over the top. I like!
The Lipstick Novum lipsticks are all slightly transparent. The color is present, but not in an overwhelming way, which is great for summer. And these lipsticks are also perfect for on the go. Their slight sheerness makes them very forgiving in their application, and you can easily touch them up without a mirror.
The Dr. Hauschka Lipstick Novum lipsticks are also insanely nourishing. I am really impressed with how pleasant they feel on my lips. I just can’t get over how amazing the formula is: so creamy, so moisturizing! It feels like I am wearing lip balm. Good move putting argan oil in these lipsticks, Dr. Hauschka!
And the wear of the Dr. Hauschka Lipstick Novum lipsticks is very decent as well. They won’t completely survive a whole evening of barbecuing or a round of sex on the beach (the cocktail version or the physical version, your choice) but because touching up is such a piece of cake, I don’t mind. In normal circumstances the color stays put for a good few hours, and with a few touch ups during the day you’ll be fine.
I think it’s pretty obvious: this guinea pig is pretty enthusiastic about the new Lipstick Novum lipsticks. Permission to launch, Dr. Hauschka!
The Dr. Hauscka Lipstick Novum lipsticks will be available in five shades around mid-August and will cost approximately 26 CHF. The Play of Light collection is a limited-edition collection, so make sure to mark the date on your calendar!
