Is there anything I should avoid if I have nut allergies?

Yes, please don't order the Lip Glacé base as this contains Macadamia nut oil.

Which lipstick or gloss gives the most full coverage color for my lips?

All of the lipsticks and lipglosses besides the Sheer Glossy Lipstick and Sheer High Shine Patent give full coverage. Please be advised when you add any of the lipcare to the lipsticks it will make it slightly more sheer. 

Which lipstick or gloss gives the most sheer coverage?

The Sheer Glossy Lipstick and Sheer High Shine Patent give the most sheer coverage. You can also make a lipstick slightly more sheer by adding SPF, Moisture & Sheen, or the Anti-Aging Complex.

What lipstick or gloss gives the most matte finish?

The long lasting matte lipstick or the creamy liquid matte lip gloss.

Which is the most long lasting lipstick or gloss?

The long lasting matte lipstick or the creamy liquid matte lip gloss. The creamy liquid matte lip gloss works best and gives a dry look finish if you wait 5 seconds between each layer application. For the best wear time, use the primer 1st.

Which lipstick or gloss is the glossiest?

The waterproof vegan lip polish lip gloss, sheer high shine patent lipgloss, or the sheer glossy lipstick.

How do I make my lipstick or gloss last longer?

Start by applying a good lip primer like our Anti-Aging Lip Primer and then filling in the entire lip with a matching lip liner pencil, then add a layer of lipstick and blot. Repeat layers of lipstick and blotting until you have you desired coverage. Layering lipstick and lipgloss will create the most long-lasting look.

How long does the long-lasting lipstick last? 

There are no chemicals in any of our products which means they won't dry out your lips and are better for you. They are also highly pigmented which means the products tend to be really long-lasting. The lipsticks will be more long-lasting than gloss, for a long-lasting gloss choose the long-lasting base. The long-lasting formulas will last up to 12 hours and all lipsticks and glosses work best with a good lip primer. Since your skin absorbs what you put on it, we choose caring, nourishing ingredients over chemicals and hope you'll love the difference and have peace of mind shopping conscientiously too.

Color Matching Disclosure

We will do our very best to color match from swatches. Because photos are much harder as monitors and devices display shades differently, people use photoshop so it's not it's true color, and often use an ombre effect (multiple lipsticks to look darker on the outside and lighter towards the center) we can't guarantee and exact match to pictures. Lipsticks and glosses will also pull differently when applied to various skin-tones, so even if we create a perfect color match off it may look different on. Color matching your existing lipsticks or discontinued lipstick takes a lot longer to make than custom blending lipstick so please allow extra time for this service. *We can not guarantee an absolute 100% match.

My Lip Gloss has separated

This is completely natural. All of our products are natural and contain no chemicals or binders which can help prevent oils separating naturally due to the frosts and pigment being more dense than the plant waxes and oils. Simply give it a stir with the wand before use. Sorry about this but we think you'd rather have products that need a little loving than toxic products!
