Lush Drive Lipstick is a pretty, shocking deep purple liquid lipstick made with natural waxes and oils. The color is rather true to the bottle, it’s a purple on the pink side with blue undertones. I imagine this lipstick would fit any health-conscious fashion diva perfectly.
The color is really trendy and fun. If I feel like grabbing more attention on a particular day, I’d always whip out Drive to go with a loud piece of clothing and Voila! Headline lips alongside complementary hipster apparel. Drive would fit just about fit any complexion, but I find it to be particularly stunning contrasted with raven black hair. The indigo in black hair really brings out the blue hues in Drive.

Having recently, dyed my hair brown, the purple in Drive gives a different effect. Drive looks warmer. Also note that I’m wearing a darker foundation here.
Drive is pretty lasting. Drive lasts for 3 hours with normal eating and slurping and the color stays strong. Drive has a lip stain effect. When it wears off, it leaves a dark pink stain, which is nice.The formula is rather viscous for a liquid. It feels great because it’s not waxy like lipstick but the formula sticks onto the lips. I find that I can easily skip the lip liner with Drive as it does not migrate once it’s a little dry. Blotting after application is necessary to set the color in place. Be assured of high color pay-off with Lush liquid lipsticks.
I love that this lipstick uses Jojoba oil, Rose and Candelilla wax. Be aware that Lush’s stuff isn’t all natural as there’s synthetic dyes and colorants in the mix. Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide sounds poisonous. It’s a a synthetic colorant and turns into gaseous hydrogen cyanide when it comes into contact with water. If you watched Skyfall, you would know that it’s used by MI16 agents as a suicide pill. (Apparently, hydrogen cyanide failed to kill him, just melted the left side of his facial skeleton.) Shouldn’t be a big problem if it’s minimal. The glass bottle might be a pain for most ladies but it sort of appeals to my inner hippie. If Lush could make their applicator recyclable, it would be perfection for the earth-loving hippies all over the world.
- Great vibrant color
- Wear time- good, leaves a stain after it disappears
- Short ingredient list
- Not the most practical packaging
- Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide— Poison???
