Sometimes it's nice to find new labels. I found Portland Black Lipstick Company by accident (I don't even remember what I was looking for). I read a couple of reviews and became even more interested and decided to make a small order. The company makes wonderfully interesting shades and according to them and some blogs they make the blackest black lipstick. :) But I didn't order that this time.
I ordered pink/gold (rosegold) 'Lux et Voluptas' and dark metallic blue 'Indigo Bridge'. Other one for everyday use the other for clubbing. I also got samples of Artificial Amethyst lipstick and 'Gold' Glitz. The lipsticks come in a lipbalm tube, which makes applying the lipstick a bit harder. So I recommend using a lipbrush.
As you can see from the picture 'Lux' is semi sheer and very shimmery/glittery. But it feels nice and smooth on lips and is excellent for layering. But I'm sure I'll be using it alone a lot this summer. 'Indigo Bridge' is insanely pigmented and applies and stays really well on lips. I don't own another blue lipstick, so this was a nice addition to my weird lipstick collection. :) And I must say it looks super good on my lips, not freaky at all.

Here's a whole face pic with 'Indigo'. The lipsticks are make from natural ingredients, but they are not vegan. The lipsticks cost $10 and I bought them from their Etsy shop. I'd really like to get 'Irony' and 'Bug's Blood' and of course the black one. :)
