The Perfect Lip Stain

I’m not normally a product person. I think it’s too easy to get caught up in the cycle of needing more and more, and I’m kind of old-fashioned… I like to keep things simple. I don’t like hype.

But every once in a while, a product comes along that’s worth shouting about. A lip stain that lasts, doesn’t dry out your lips, and looks natural-but-better is certainly worth shouting about, and I’ve found it!

Here it is, the holy grail: Red Gerbera Lip Stain.

It doesn’t look like much, sitting on my battered vintage armoir in its tiny portable pot, but this stuff has to be made of magic. It feels and smell totally amazing going on, and it is perfectly, perfectly red: not too orange and not too blue (why is that always so hard to find?).

It’s smudgy and casual, but smacks of Old Hollywood glamour in this really satisfying way. Wearing it, I feel polished and feminine but never (ugh) too “done”. Oh, and you know what else? It’s 100% natural, vegan, and cruelty free. Seriously. HOLY GRAIL.

Von Natur, the company who makes it, specializes in natural, vegan and cruelty free products, and if you find yourself at their website – make sure to check out their Chaotic Facial Moisturizer. I consider it a miracle for acne-prone skin and it has basically changed my life.

Time to go put on some lip stain… I <3 you, von Natur!

    Oh wow. A TRUE red! Thanks for the heads-up on that. I have fair skin with neutral undertones and if the color leans blue or orange, it is just not good on me. I will definitely be checking their website out because of your recommendation!
