Kiss Kiss — Make Lip Hydration Colorful With Kiss My Face’s Sheer Organic Lip Glosses
For a while, the organic beauty craze seemed to be relevant only to those affluent enough to afford high-end designer makeup products. I mean, sure, regular gals read up on the benefits of buying mineral-based makeup and organic face cleansers an moisturizers but committing to an all-green beauty routine seemed like an expensive proposition. Hey, Stella McCartney’s CARE moisturizer, Smashbox’s Green Room foundations and eye shadows, Sephora.com and Josie Maran lipgloss palettes are all fantastic products, but buying all these items and tossing out those old, chemical-laced beauty goods in order to abide by a new eco-friendly standard of living constitutes a heavy burden on your pockets. And nowadays, who can afford to have her pockets hit?
Fortunately, mineral-based make-up has made its way to the drugstore — Physician’s Formula and Sally Hansen are among those carrying some noteworthy, all-natural powders, lip glosses and eye shadows.
One of the most exciting launches for me has been Kiss My Face’s line of Sheer Organic Shines, all-natural, mineral-based, lip glosses with just the right hint of color. The Kiss My Face Sheer Organic Shine lip glosses feature a 91% organic formula and are free of parabens and artificial colors or fragrances.The ingredients include: Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Peppermint Oil.
Inspired by various jewel tones, the Sheer Organic Shines (SOS) are available in Pearl, Amethyst, Topaz, Rose, Garnet and Ruby. Dab some on and you’ll instantly notice the minty smell (courtesy of the Peppermint Oil) and, by the way, it’s more of a Thin Mint cookie kind of smell, rather than a hard mint candy scent (which is a BIG plus for me, since I’m not big on mint but I looove me some Thin Mints!). In terms of the color, it’s light enough to spruce up your look while still looking natural. The Garnet shade, for one, brings out this blushed, I just-bit-on-my-lip color that’s very sexy.
So if you got an SOS out for those TLC-needing lips, here’s your solution.
