Lip & Cheek Stains
Lip & Cheek Stain
A versatile plant-based stain for the lips and cheeks, not too pink, a little red wine-y a little blackberry-y stain, and free of heavy metal (the bad kind).
Alkanet and beetroot give this stain its rich color and earthy scent, with just a touch of essential oil of rose geranium. Rose geranium is used in aromatherapy to reduce nervousness and tension and has mild antibacterial, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties which all aid in the overall health of the skin.
HEADS (NOSES) UP: Some find the smell of the alkanet root too earthy for their tastes -- alkanet has a flave akin to valerian root.
Oh yes y’all- ruby, flaming, opium poppy red tint for your lips! Made from veggies and herbs no less! This ruby red leans on the side of a deep orange, covering different territory than Lip & Cheek Stain. It has been used as a cheek stain too- but the color is less concentrated than the aforementioned Stain. This balm will moisturize and protect the lips while giving them that ‘just ate a cherry popsicle’ pout. Essential oils of clove and orange mirror the vibe of the color.
