Don’t Eat That!

Posted on April 11, 2012



I found this video cruising around YouTube and wanted to share.  I pay a lot of attention to what goes into my own personal beauty routine.  It’s almost impossible to keep a professional makeup kit 100% organic.  Generally speaking, the quality isn’t as good, the payoff not as big and the overall performance is lacking to some of the more mainstream brands.  But like anything, use the really healthy stuff where you can and I find the easiest place to start in on the smacker.

But here are a couple of favorite paraben free lip products that are good enough to eat and wear:

Starting with the prep of your lips, I love, love, love First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy.  Sometimes when I’m doing someone’s makeup and they’ve slathered their lips with balm, it’s too hard to get the lipstick to stay put and we need to wipe it down and start over.  This has a less shiny consistency which is perfect for priming.

Tarte knocks it out of the park with their lip products and the LipSurgence Natural Lip Tints are no exception.  Kinda a gloss, kinda a lipstick, they are simple and easy and that works for me.  They glide one and come in so many juicy, gorgeous colors.

For lipstick look no further that ILIA Beauty.  The creator, Sasha, poured her heart and soul into researching every little ingredient to make sure they perform like the lipstick brands we are all used to.  She’s a smaller operation, but she is mighty and fast growing.

What abut you guys?  Thoughts on natural lip products?
