Lux et Voluptas is a two-toned lipstick. It has a top layer of metallic gold backed by a charming carmine-based pink. The two pictures we have posted using black construction paper are the same lipstick with indirect, then direct, light shining on it.

It is somewhat more translucent, light and sparkly than most of our other colors, which works well for those who prefer more subtle lip wear than we usually offer! Warning: this is extremely cheerful!!

And, yes, this is a personal tribute to the restrained decadence of the 1990s, to Hakim Bey, and to this year's long awaited spring season in Portland. Look forward to the launch of our new autumnal color -- 'Nox et Veritas'!!!

Like all Portland Black Lipstick Company lipsticks, Bug's Blood is made with all-natural ingredients and is moisturizing and long-wearing. For a full list of ingredients, please click on 'Show Item Details' below.

***Please note that our makeup is NOT hypoallergenic, since it contains many ingredients (including carmine) that can cause allergic reactions ranging from mild to severe in susceptible individuals. Allergies and sensitivities may appear immediately or eventually (even after multiple uses.) Please be careful and responsible when using any natural cosmetic or body care product.***

[Special thanks to Ping Hsiao of the fabulous House of Hsiao for modeling this lipstick in the dark of the Lovecraft Bar one Saturday.]
