Accidental Brilliance In the beauty bag...
When it comes to lip color I fall into the category of less is more, usually a plain old lip balm with no color or lip stain are my favorites. My beautiful mother on the other hand has always been on the hunt for the perfect lipstick, so I get the allure. You know how they say, " a new lipstick makes everything better ", guess that's why lipstick is big business. And then there is the urban myth that women eat six pounds of lipstick in the course of a lifetime, sorta crazy right ? So would you eat six pounds of chemicals ? No way. Did you know that many of the most popular brands of lipstick contain many dangerous ingredients including lead, yes lead. Over the last few years there have been some really great additions to the options on all natural lipsticks so there really is no reason to risk it. These are a few of my top picks with the bite line of lipsticks as the top of those picks, great colors in a range of pigments from sheer to full coverage. And a quick tip to keep that pucker extra soft and kissable, make a mixture of a little sugar and lemon juice and rub over lips to exfoliate and smooth.
