I have a few vices. Wine, food, and ice cream are just a few of them. However, I’ve also got a soft spot for lipsticks, lip stains, and lip glosses. In an effort to be a better person, I try to make these vices as healthy as possible. I’m not going to give up wine anytime soon, so I’m trying to clean up my make-up routine instead. As I read up on how make-up is made, I learned that essentially everything major companies put into their products is terrible. Yet not all brands are bad, and I’ve found a few that produce safer make-up that still lasts. Recently, one of my favorite green make-up distributors, Citrine Natural Beauty Bar ran a promo that included a bag filled with both sample and full-sized products with any purchase. I am a sucker for a promo, and as I am still swapping out some of my big brands for cleaner ones, samples are a great way for me to test products out without putting too much of my money down. One of the goodies I received was a lip gloss from Jane Iredale, and I liked it enough to mention it here.
Called “Iced Mocha,” this lip gloss is great for a subtle look. It boosts the look of your natural lips with a soft rosy color and adds just enough shine to keep it fun. It keeps a slightly tacky feel throughout the day, which means this isn’t for you matte lovers out there. But if you like some shine, add this one to your wishlist for the upcoming holidays to complete your look! You won’t have to worry about getting lipstick all over your face as you inhale your second serving of mashed potatoes, and it doesn’t get much better than that. Happy Holidays!
