She Persisted, Red Lip + Cheek Tint
If you're tired of lipstick, but you wouldn't mind a little color with your moisturizing lip balm, this is the thing for you. For the no-fuss, no-nonsense, no makeup, get up and go girl. I invented this lip tint as my go-to for some quick color on my lips that would keep my lips hydrated and put some color in my cheeks without drying out my lips, needing a mirror to put on, or nasty chemicals that could potentially go into my mouth or onto my kiddoes when I give them a big smooch! This naturally-occurring color was mankind’s first pigment, used for adorning the body and creating prehistoric art such as cave paintings. It is the pigment of ceremony and tradition.
This is the brightest color of all of the tints. It comes out a rich shade of brick red. Shade of tint will darken depending on how many coats you apply, as seen in the picture in the description. It lasts about as long as any lip balm would last. The first ingredient in this lip tint is argan oil, sourced from a women's cooperative in Morocco. The cooperative raises the social status of the women it employs by providing them with a fair wage and education. Every step towards equality counts, no matter where in the world it may be. Other ingredients include the moisturizing oils of jojoba and avocado, calming calendula extract with an organic beeswax base. Color is added with mica, colorants naturally occurring in earth that are produced in a lab to be identical to substances occurring in earth, but without the nasty lead. These tints are handmade in small batches by Madison Soap Company LLC in Madison, WI.
Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Women's Cooperative Argan Oil, Organic Avocado Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Beeswax, Calendula Extract, Rosemary Oleoresin, *Iron Oxide
*iron oxide is normally derived from nature, however the form used in cosmetics is often synthetically made to ensure purity for consumer safety. Additionally, by definition, the FDA does not consider oxides to be "natural" since they are not derived from a plant (inorganic material), however we feel confident in including it in our makeup because it is originally sourced from the earth, which is a strong part of our ethos, and we strive to be completely transparent with you about the source of ingredients we include in our products so you are knowledgeable about what you apply to your body.
