In Person Custom Lipstick: Once your colors are mixed you can choose any combination of the below to further enhance and customize your lipstick or lip-gloss. All of them are natural and oil based.

Lipstick Customization Enhancements That Add TLC:

These further enhance and customize your lipstick or lip-gloss to fit your needs, whether that's more moisture, SPF, lip plumping, or anti-aging.  

  • Moisture & Shine- Made from a rich blend of Avocado, grape seed, Jojoba & botanical oils, this blend is rich in anti-oxidants. Great for dry climates, cold weather, sun parched lips, or dry lips. No more chapped lips. We recommend this for matte based lipsticks or when you want a sheerer look.
  • Sunscreen Additive- All lipsticks and glosses start with SPF 8 but provide more protection by either adding more pigment for a fuller coverage color and/or by adding the all natural sunscreen additive. Made from an organic ester, which increases SPF of lipstick. This works really well with sheer colors.
  • Lip Plump Additive- Our most popular add on! An all-natural lip plumper with anti-aging properties that volumizes, hydrates, smooth’s fine lines and improves your lip contours. It plumps and moisturizes by stimulating collagen production in the connective tissues.

 In a clinical study where women applied the patented peptide 3 times a day for 29 days the results were: 

  • 40% increase in lip volume
  • 60% improvement in lip hydration
  • 70% increase in lip softness
  • 100% improvement in lip condition
  •  29% reduction in surface folds and creases

Natural Essential Oils: Flavors and Essences

These irresistible flavors and scents further enhance and customize your custom lipstick. Go ahead and play around; choose one or create delicious blends, feel free to get as creative as you like. Think Girl Scout Thin Mint, Vanilla Nut Latte, Chocolate Covered Cherry. 

NB: The flavors will only add flavor, not scent. If you'd like a scent (which we recommend), select an essence or an essence and a flavor. Different flavors and scents offered seasonally.
