Cruelty free. Vegetarian. Paraban Free. Fragrance free. Highly Pigmented. Matte, yet comfortable.
Just some words to describe an exciting new brand coming out of the maritimes.
I am all for supporting local businesses, especially when they have a product that is really kickass!!!
DAVAL Beauty is handcrafted in my home province of Nova Scotia.
I do believe the actual line just officially launched last week and was a MAJOR success!
The best ( or worst) type of advertising is word of mouth and in this day and age, social media presence! In this case, both really paid off for this brand.
I managed to purchase my three shades at a new Spa in Sydney (Nurtured Holistic Esthetics) , which is run by my friend Jillian. Check her out!!
On a side note, I’m a big believer in supporting another Esthechian’s success and growth. Plus, I love pampering myself and picking her brain for any tips/tricks to better myself in the long run 🙂
I purchased the shades “Malrah”, “Tommy Guns” and “Olive” and I’m patiently waiting to go pick up a newer shade that is coming out, “Lioness”.

All very different colours and I am still on the fence with which one is my favourite.
With these and any matte finish lipsticks, you definitely should have your lips properly exfoliated and moisturizered before hand. (I used Lush’s Bubble gum lip scrub and Eucerin Intensive lip balm.)
As far as lasting power, I really only got to wear Malrah for a few hours yesterday and today. I was pretty pleased at what was left after I inhaled a Birthday Cake Cake pop and gulped down a Venti Iced Chai Latte (p.s. if you haven’t had one, you haven’t lived!) :p
Lipstick is by far my favourite makeup item. I am always looking for great new colours to add to my ridiculously huge and embarrassing collection and DAVAL definitely has lots of fun but easily wearable shades. ✔️
Also, Matte finish lipsticks are my favourite finish. I’m much too busy to be worrying about if my lipstick is all worn off or smeared all over my teeth. So DAVAl gets another ✔️
As I previously stated, I like supporting local businesses. I also love the fact of a woman run business. This company is both. ✔️
A bonus is the price is right. The introductory price was $12.o4 and no tax.
Nurtured Esthetics had a special limited time price of 2 for $20. I would pay more and have in the past for other lipsticks that aren’t even as good!! ✔️
The packaging is simple and the label is cute. If it has a puppy on it, I will like it. ✔️
I know as of this moment, DAVAL is only sold on Etsy and at two places in Sydney, NS. And they are with limited supplies. So go find them on Instagram to find out when and how to get your hands on these hot little items ❤
