[Mother nature's rouge]
I chose a blend of naturally red ingredients, including CO2 extracts of Sea Buckthorn Berry and Rosehip (extracted from the whole berry), Red Raspberry Seed oil and Buriti Fruit oil. Calendula extract adds healing and color, along with a lovely earthy aroma. Organic CO2 extracted Pomegranate is rich in many beneficial compounds. The aroma of Ginger Root essential oil is known to settle the stomach. I infused Jojoba, a liquid wax ester from native trees, with a blend of roots and berries and triple strained it. Organic Avocado Oil is super emollient. Meadowfoam Seed Oil is a humectant, helping the skin retain moisture. Organic Kokum Butter is a rare, healing treat that blends really well with chocolately, Fair-Trade Cocoa Butter. Organic Carnauba wax helps make this product vegan and more heat-resistant! Using Carnauba adds to the staying power of the tint, as well.

[anthropology 101]
We have evidence, many thousands of years old, that humans have decorated and embellished their skin with paints. As a people, we've gone from crushed pigments, roots, ash and bark in animal fat, to synthetic and heavy metal dyes in petroleums. Our modern face-paints are coming under increased scrutiny as we learn about possible negative side-effects. We are often left to choose between our personal health and meeting cultural standards of beauty. I made this for the many female friends and family members who asked me to make a "healthy lip-stick!"

Always do a patch test. This is intended for adults. It is safe for older children, guided by an adult. These young people are expressing their creativity and individuality through their bodies and mirroring what they see in our culture. It is a good time to emphasize that true beauty comes from with-in, while having fun!

"This is very lightly tinted with a scent that reminds me of those yummy spicy dark chocolate bars. The tint is very light, so I'll probably use it more as a lip balm. It feels so nice!"

"I'm rather fair skinned and this gave a very subtle complimentary natural tint to my lips. Very nice for casual daytime natural look."

"LOVE it! Perfect color for my lips and smooth texture and great shine. Thank you Cathy, it is my new favorite!!!"

"oh CATHERINE. good gracious everything is almost edible. thank you thank you!"

"really in love with this, i have a draw-full of tints, stand and tinted balms that i can't really wear and i think this one is fast becoming my favorite. normally i would never have dared to actually try one on my cheeks (grumpy, mature/oily skin) but i did and i'm so glad, it looked beautiful and my skin was totally fine, it's nice to have a little color back in my cheeks every now and again without worrying about shifting and breakouts. the shade is so pretty too, on me it's the same color as my natural flush, so it looks completely natural. like i'm wearing nothing at all with a bit of gloss on the lips. i'm so glad there's no shimmer or anything to take away from it. well done, and thank so much for this!"
