Lip & Cheek StainFat and the Moon
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.
For those seeking a richer look with the same shade, we suggest Hecate Lip Paint.
0.5 fl oz
Alkanet root powder (Alkanna tinctoria)*, Beetroot Powder (Beta spp.)*, Infused sunflower oil (Helianthus annuus)*, Beeswax (Cera alba), and essential oil of Rose Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)*
