Update on the perfect Lipstick for Purists: KOSAS Lipstick & the Perfect Red


I am always in search of the perfect shade of red.  Like the infamous Diana Vreeland, I too am on this search.  Then there is my fear of a red lipstick that ends up way above my lip line going “rogue” from its original application is a fear, too. Getting that “red” to stay put requires a variety of tricks from the make-up bag.  I reported I had discovered the Bobbie Brown Lip Pencil in “HARLOW” an option for that BIG NIGHT out and it has been a great success.  Now, in my 2018 efforts to find a lip color that registers on the ORGANIC scale of beauty, the KOSAS lipstick from a unique organic beauty company is now on my radar.  The red I chose was ELECTRA and it simply looks divine and the formula is both moist when applied for that look or when dabbed on with your finger is like a stain.  Our QUEEN OF GOOP, GP’s favorite (Gwyneth Paltrow) Now onwards to the natural tones of rose, brick and for you vampy gals, the DARK PLUM color is also gorgeous.   Let’s just say that this company has SOLVED the organic formula lipstick that is filled with all the right ingredients for the PURIST, and still has the fashion look that we ‘beautistas’ love.  There are also powder and creme blushes in this new line that we can’t wait to try too.  The world of ORGANIC is here to stay with formulas like this that are carried at NEIMAN MARCUS and TRUTH BEAUTY COMPANY online.

Cheers to the organic formulas that you can include in your make-up bag.
