i am still planning on reviewing my haul of new non-toxic beauty products, but in the meantime, i want to share another love it. want it. with you today!
let me start by saying i am a fool for lip color. it is so hard for me to resist buying new glosses, lipsticks, stains, you name it. maybe because they're so pretty or maybe because buying one little tube won't break the bank, but i keep adding to my collection and somehow never finish a single product without buying a new one.
let me also tell you i almost always have buyer's remorse. it's not that i don't enjoy my new colors, believe me, i like having a collection to choose from, but somehow the color doesn't seem quite right once i've taken it home. i've shared before that i'm pretty picky when it comes to lipsticks and perhaps i just lose interest quickly, but i am here to say that i am obsessed with tarte's lipsurgance in achiote. seriously obsessed.
it's a bit like a lip crayon/lipstick/balm all in one. considered a lip treatment, this color is seriously hydrating and gives off a subtle shimmer. the color and prismatic nature of the product works really well with the multiple in orgasm (see my post on how to apply here) and nepal eyeshadow, both by nars. the nars products are not all-natural, but i'm hooked and they look lovely together.
lip color | sunless tanner
what i haven't tried, but have my eye on, is one of the very few natural sunless tanners on the market. after over a decade of living in the midwest (can't quite believe that myself!), my skin is a lovely shade of paste. i try to stay out of the sun because, you know, cancer and wrinkles suck, but i'd still like a little glow.
chocolate sun cocoa glow sunless tanning is seems pretty pricey, but the reviews are great and you can't argue with an organic product! i'd love to know: have you tried any natural self tanning products?
