Three Organic Lipsticks to Try This Summer
I teamed up with AILLEA to share a few natural and organic lipsticks you need to try this summer. AILLEA is a natural beauty store located in Denver. Kathryn Dickinson started AILLEA as a place where women can make healthy choices about the products they put on their body. In the beauty industry, the amount of greenwashing, meaning a product contains one organic ingredient but lots of other chemicals and is advertised as organic is pretty scary. AILLEA exists to be a safe haven where people know that every single product is free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, endocrine disruptors or other toxic chemicals, and was not tested on animals.
When you are shopping for a new summer lipstick check out a few of these healthier options! In the summer months, I tend to lean towards brighter and bolder colors. I think putting on a pretty shade of lipstick automatically makes you look more polished and put-together. Keep reading to find out three great lipstick brands and shades for summer...
I'm wearing the shade "Darlin" in this ILIA Tinted Lip Conditioner. It is the perfect sheer nude with ripe peach and apricot undertones. The color may look bold but it is beautifully subtle when applied. This moisturizing lipstick has SPF 15 to protect your lips from the sun! "The moisturizing butters of Cocoa and Shea help soften lips and are combined with a rich blend of antioxidant oils of Organic Avocado, Sesame, Cranberry, and Passionflower." It is the perfect addition to a fresh-faced minimal makeup look.
This Kosas weightless lip color is definitely a showstopper. I'm wearing the shade "thrillest" which is a bright, orangy red "Kosås lip colors are made by hand, blending science and art to produce natural performance color, with smooth finishes, even textures, and balanced hues." Kosås has a collection of lipsticks in red, plum, brights, nudes and roses. This lipstick has a matte finish but is not drying like many other matte lipsticks.
This Kjaer Weis lipstick contains luxurious ingredients including, Beeswax which nourishes and moisturizes, Jojoba Seed Oil which adds moisture to the skin, Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil that has excellent tissue regeneration properties and Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract which is an antioxidant. I'm wearing the shade "Rapture" which is a fun and vibrant pink hue.
