As the hottest days of summer begin to give way to autumn, we crave the warm copper and peach tones of our Harvest Moon lipstick, shown here with Apricot blush and the Foliage and Faerie Lanterns shadows from our Autumn Splendour Collection.
Ingredients: Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, theobroma cacao (cocoa) butter, candelilla cera (plant wax), saccharum officinarum (sugar), limnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, sambucus nigra (elderberry) fruit extract ± mica, iron oxides, tin oxide, titanium dioxide
Store in a cool, dry place—the oils, waxes and butters that make lipsticks creamy and moisturising also make them sensitive to temperature changes. Lipsticks, like chocolate, will melt if they're left in a car on a hot, sunny day. As well, rapid heating and cooling can lead to wax bloom on lipsticks, a harmless white film much like the fat bloom that appears on chocolate when oil creates re-crystallization of cocoa butter triglycerides. Wax bloom can be removed gently with a cotton swab or tissue.
