kitty's big red lips
Go ahead, click on it! It's the lipstick featured in kitty's kiss below, Dr. Hauschka lipstick #6. It smells like roses, glides beautifully, doesn't smear and bleed and make me look like a member of The Cure. Come to think of it, I don't think I've worn red lipstick since I stopped listening to them in 1994! Anyway, this is a lipstick that can be blotted down to a stain with staying power or left at full tilt to rock the night away. I love it!
Ingredients include beeswax, plant waxes and essential oils, not disgusting petrochemicals. It's safe enough to eat, which is a good thing if you believe the urban legends that the average woman eats/absorbs up to 5 tubes a year, or 6 pounds in a lifetime... lick by lick, drink by drink, bite by bite. The problem is, cosmetics are unregulated and mainstream brands are free to include all kinds of toxic ingredients, such as lead. Remember that scare from a few years ago? No, thanks. I'll stick to strictly botanical formulas! What do you use on your lips?
