Olio E Osso Balm No. 3 - Crimson



Sheer tinted balm for lips and face with a beautifully flattering, naturally dewy finish

0.35 oz

Olio E Osso’s Tinted Balms have a major cult following among celebrities and pro athletes alike. They appeal to just about everyone because a) they're adorable, b) they're extraordinarily portable and easy to use, c) they leave you looking like the freshest, brightest, prettiest version of yourself — not like someone who's wearing makeup. They give lips and cheeks a sheer wash of color that moisturizes and nourishes, leaving behind a dewy glow.

In addition to color, these super hydrating, lightly grapefruit-scented balms contain just four carefully chosen ingredients — organic olive oil, shea oil, beeswax, and grapefruit essential oil — that condition lips and highlight cheekbones perfectly. They were created by a makeup artist, Paola LaMorticella, who has worked with top athletes for the last 25 years, including the US Women's Soccer Team: its members needed a makeup product for their shoots that didn't look or feel like makeup, so she whipped up these tinted balms. Click here for the wild and wonderful story behind their creation.

Crimson is a light blush of classic red that helps create the perfect pout and works beautifully on cheeks as well. Paola particularly loves it on fair skin with gray hair. It's beautiful on its own, or you can mix it with No. 5 Currant or No. 6 Bronze Shimmer, both pictured below, for more depth. You can't go wrong with this shade (or any of them, really, but especially this one).

Olio E Osso's balms are handmade in Portland in small batches. But of course.
