Just in time for a little Valentine’s Day treat, LATHER has introduced a limited edition trio of 100% natural Tinted Lip Balms.
The three shades are perfect for Vday or any day actually:
- Pink Peony: shimmery pale pink
- Cinnabar Silk: red with rusty/brown undertones and a satin finish
- Plush Plum: plummy violet with a hint of shimmer.
The shades are subtle and give that My Lips But Better look. The Pink Peony gives a very light flush of color and sparkle, while Cinnabar Silk and Plush Plum give the lips more color while still looking very natural. Cinnabar Silk was just about made for my “rusty” coloring. I love it 😛
When it comes to what I wear on my lips, I think about the ingredients more often than I do for any other makeup product since I know I end up ingesting a fair amount of it. LATHER’s Tinted Lip Balms contain no:
- petroleum-derived ingredient
- artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners
- carmine, a red colorant made from insects
- synthetic fragrances or colors.
What the Lip Balms do contain are good-for-you ingredients:
- organic beeswax
- botanical oils, butters and extracts.
The lip balms contain organic plant oils including argan, sunflower and coconut combined with organic cocoa butter and beeswax to moisturize, soothe, soften and protect lips. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? And the color comes from mineral pigments rather than insects. Nice.
Also, LATHER products are cruelty-free.
LATHER Tinted Lip Balms have a slight minty scent when first applied. I was a little concerned because I’m one of those rare birds whose sensitive lips can’t handle peppermint oil, but I have no problem at all wearing these soothing lip balms. So happy!
LATHER Tinted Lip Balms are 0.15 oz and the price is $7.50. They are sold on the LATHER website and, I think, at LATHER stores located in Pasadena CA, Scottsdale AZ, Atlanta GA, and Falls Church VA.
Right now, LATHER is hosting a GIVEAWAY of the Tinted Lip Balm Trio on Instagram. A lucky winner will win the trio of balms for herself and for a friend in honor of Valentine’s Day. So head on over to IG and enter! You must be 18+. The contest ends on February 13, 2015.
This was my first experience with LATHER all natural body and skincare products, and it was a happy one. I think these little lip balms would make a super cute and soothing Valentine’s gift for a friend, teacher, daughter, whomever! Have you tried LATHER yet?
