Scanning my Lip Products on the Think Dirty App.

Hello, friends! A happy Monday to you all. I hope that this week is treating you well so far, and I am so excited to be writing this post today! Today’s post is a continuation of my makeup journey!

So, today I scanned all my lip products on the Think Dirty App. I attempted to scan a total of 66 lip products, and the app ended up recognizing 12 of the products. Some of the products themselves came up, but they didn’t have the shade that I owned, and I wanted to make sure that it was as accurate as possible, so I did not count them.

A little bit about the Think Dirty app: this is an app that was made to help people figure out what exactly is in their beauty products, and if they’re deemed “clean” or “dirty”. It gives you a list of the ingredients found, and if those ingredients are clean or dirty. Other users of the app are also able to leave reviews of the products, and you’re able to scroll through the app to find similar products that are better for you. And no, this post is not sponsored! Even if I wish it was…

Lip Products Found

  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme, in shade Kiss Me Coral, 750. This app gave it a score of 6, which is considered “half n’ half”. Revlon is not a cruelty-free brand, so, regardless of the score, I won’t buy it again.
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme, in shade Ravish Me Red, 654. This app gave it a score of 3, which is considered “clean”. Revlon is not a cruelty-free brand, so, again, regardless of the score, I won’t buy it again. It’s a real shame, because I really like this shade of red.
  • L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick, in shade True Red, 315. This app gave it a score of 8, which is considered “dirty”. L’Oreal is not a cruelty-free brand, so regardless of the score, I won’t buy it again. This lipstick is so nostalgic to me though, as it was my first red lipstick! I will miss it dearly once it is all used up.
  • EOS Lip Balm, Sweet Mint. This app gave it a score of 0, which is considered clean. EOS is not a cruelty-free brand, so, regardless of the score, I won’t buy it again.
  • EOS Lip Balm, Blueberry Acai. This app gave it a score of 0, which is considered clean. EOS is not a cruelty-free brand, so, regardless of the score, I won’t buy it again.
  • EOS Smooth Stick Lip Balm, Vanilla Bean. This app gave it a score of 0, which is considered clean. EOS is not a cruelty-free brand, so, regardless of the score, I won’t buy it again.
  • Burt’s Bee’s Satin Lipstick, in shade Doused Rose, 513. The app gave it a score of 0, which is considered “clean”. Burt’s Bees is a cruelty-free brand, but as their brand name would imply, the majority of them contain beeswax. Beeswax is generally considered okay for vegetarians, but since it’s a animal by-product, it would not be considered vegan. I’m working on creating a makeup collection that is cruelty-free AND vegan, so I don’t plan on purchasing this again.
  • Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss, in shade Summer Twilight, 245. This app gave it a score of 0, which is considered “clean”. Burt’s Bees is a cruelty-free brand, but as their brand name would imply, the majority of them contain beeswax. Beeswax is generally considered okay for vegetarians, but since it’s a animal by-product, it would not be considered vegan. I’m working on creating a makeup collection that is cruelty-free AND vegan, so I don’t plan on purchasing this again.
  • Covergirl Lip Perfection Lip Liner, in shade Passion, 215. This app gave it a score of 8, which is considered “dirty”. Covergirl is a cruelty-free brand, but this lipstick contains carmine, so it is not vegan. And as such, I do not plan on purchasing this again.
  • Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast Chapstick. This app gave it a score of 9, which is considered “dirty”. Blistex is not cruelty-free, nor is it vegan, so I do not plan on purchasing this again.
  • Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil, in shade Madeira. This app gave it a score of 5, which is considered “half n’ half”. Bite Beauty is cruelty-free, but this product is not vegan, so I do not plan on purchasing it again.
  • Buxum Big & Healthy Lipstick, in shade Amsterdam. This app gave it a score of 3, which is considered “clean”. Buxum is a cruelty-free brand, but this product contains carmine, so, alas, it is not vegan. Which is a big shame, because I looooooove this lipstick. When I was doing research on it, it was hard to find information on it, so I think it’s not even available anymore.

And that’s that, my friends! The app recognized 12/66 of my lip products, and of those 12, none of them I plan on buying again! This app updates quite often, so if it ends up recognizing some of my other lip products, I can do an updated version of this! Does anyone else get super overwhelmed when doing research about makeup brands? There are so many different things to consider, it can feel near impossible to find products that you feel okay with buying. And the thing is, I don’t know if I’ll ever feel 100% about any given product. All I can do is my best!

I averaged out my score for the lip products that registered, and I got a 3.5, which isn’t too bad, but regardless, I don’t plan on buying these again! I definitely wish that I could find more of my products on the app, but this is a start! I may even make another post after doing my own research on all my other lip products, and the ones that I find, if any, that are worthy of purchasing again. Creating a cleaner bathroom, one product at a time!

I hope that y’all enjoyed this post, and if I made a mistake on any of this, please let me know, and I will fix it!

Thank you so much for reading!

XOXO,

Mattie Mae
