Simply rub the balm with your clean fingertip for sheer coverage. For a more dramatic look, scrape the tint using the back of your nail (or a lip brush) and apply to lips. When you’re finished applying to your lips, blend the residual balm into your dry hands or elbows, and the residual tint into your cheekbones for a creamy blush. It’s truly amazing how just one swipe of these tints can bring an entire outfit together.
We love that tins are sleek, easy-to-open containers that fit into pockets, purses, and backpacks with ease; however, there are a few ways storing your product can affect the contents. For starters, due to the plant-based butters and oils, the consistency of your balm can soften or harden with a change in temperature. If you find your balm is hard and you would like it to be creamier, then we suggest placing it in your pocket so that the heat of your body warms the contents. However, definitely remember to check your pockets before you wash your laundry! If your balm is too creamy (such can be the case if you leave it in a hot car for example) then place it in a cool dark place.
One of the biggest issues with buying cosmetics is filling the oceans and environment with plastic waste. This is why we choose reusable & recyclable tins over disposable plastic tubes. Plus, we love that one minimal metal tin maximizes two beauty staples- lipstick and blush. And best of all, when you’re out of product you can wash the tin and repurpose it or simply recycle.
With so many lip products on the market, it can be hard to find ones that work best with your body. You may find that some dry out your lips over time- this can be attributed to many brands sourcing petroleum derivatives (plastic) as cheap fillers for their products. Some of these plastics are bio accumulators, not only building up in your body and the environment but passed down through an average of four generations through reproductive cells. What we put on our bodies truly affects generations to come, so there is no better time to make a switch to a healthier alternative than right now! These balms and tints have a simple, plant-based ingredient list, third-party certifications, and can be metabolized by your body. These are all important features of any product you put onto your skin.
