I don't know about you, but in the summer when it's warm I just want to wear as little as possible! That goes not only for clothes but also for make-up. I just want to take it all OFF. However, while the foundation may hibernate and there is no need for extensive blush, I still want color on my lips. I still want...something! Also keeping in mind a personal challenge to upgrade my cosmetics with more organic and natural options, I was quite critical when searching for my new lip color.
I came across HibisKiss Lip Color and wanted to try it simply because I kind of got seduced by the beyond adorable packaging and thought it would be a great little lip balm for the summer with some natural sun protection build in. When I first put it on I was very pleasantly surprised at exactly how much color it gave my lips! I got "Tropical" and it really complements my natural lip color which is cool pink making my lips more vivid, more present, and giving them a lovely subtle shimmer. It smells and tastes delicious too and is quite long lasting for a 'balm'. Also, it's organic!!! And that's no crazy rumor. ;-) (Rest of the world here.)

More All Natural Options
1 - Yes to Carrots C Me Blush Lip Tint in Sunset Pink. This little number contains peppermint oil which I hear makes your lip tingle a bit after application. How fun for the summer! And imagine sneakingly re-applying this right before smooching with your honey? You'll leave his lips tingling and he won't even know what hit him! (In the US you can grab it at Target or Walmart.

2 - Badger Balm Lip Tint & Shimmer in Jasper Red! This is very interesting because the lip tint comes with a shimmer stick on the other end! Because, some days you feel like a shimmer and some days you don't. ;-) (Rest of the world here.)
4 - Intelligent Nutrients Lip Delivery Antioxidant Gloss in Purple Maize. It's getting more "complex" here with this deeper grape color. This is more of a gloss, but because it's all natural it's not sticky like the regular glosses. (Worldwide here.)
5 - Kjaer Weis Lip Tint in Goddess. Ok true, at $48 this one is a definite splurge. But I imagine using this as an instrument of seduction... It's a delicious summer night, it's late, you just had a wonderful dinner with your husband/lover/hot guy you met 3 hours ago followed by a decadent desert you both shared... you take out this mysterious (to him) silver case out of your snakeskin purse, rotate the top to open it and proceed to massage your lips with deep burgundy color with your finger. Is it getting hot in here yet? Then you click the silver case shut dropping it back in your purse as he watches you mesmerized. And then... well, what happens then is clearly non of our business.

Hope you've enjoyed this organic lip line-up!
