I donâ€™t own that many lippies but reading all those reports about lead in your lipstick (either theyâ€™re true or not) made me all the more wary about buying traditional ones. Luckily for us mineral makeup addicts, companies have made their own lipsticks and glosses using more natural ingredients.
I have only tried a few of them but enough for me to have my favorites.
This new company has one of the most moisturizing lippies around. I have them in Indulge lipstick and Birthday Suit lip gloss. Both these shades are neutral giving the perfect YLBB shade to anybodyâ€™s lips at the same time keeping them moist.

Their foundations have light to medium coverage and are Bismuth-free so no itchies for me. The finish is not matte (no kaolin clay) yet not shiny either. There wasnâ€™t that much difference in the shades I got and both looked good on me so I just mixed them up. I topped it off with their finishing powders in Flawless Matte (Kaolin and mica) and Shine Away (ground clay). It lasted fairly well on me for a whole day most probably due to the finishing powderâ€™s oil-control properties.
