A wearable, flattering coral
There’s been a lot of buzz around Kosas (example: massive New York Times Magazine feature), and rightly so. These are among the most weightless, modern, beautifully wearable lipsticks around.
We love the fact that these handmade lipsticks were formulated to be as clean as possible, but with performance as the primary goal. So they’re long-wearing, hydrating, whisper-light, non-waxy, and still good up to 18 months after you first use them despite their green-beauty-approved, preservative-free ingredient lists. (Which we appreciate; we know how long lipsticks can kick around in cosmetic cases and dresser drawers.) Kosas colors are buildable, from sheer stains to full coverage, and have a non-drying, non-glossy finish. And their addictive vanilla-orange scent is reminiscent of the top of a Cabbage Patch Kid's head. Remember that smell? We happen to love it and think you will, too.
THRILLEST is a beautiful, warm red with a hint of orange — and it’s surprisingly flattering on those who may not have felt as though they could pull off a coral. As our go-to local makeup artist, Melissa McMillan, puts it, “This brand does an amazing job of putting a rich, neutral base as the first layer of color in all of their lipsticks, so even colors like coral — which seem to work for so few people — are accessible for everyone. Just throw on some mascara and Thrillest and you look glamorous and pulled together.”
This bright, warm shade can also be considered a red that's good for beginners. If you haven't ventured into the world of bold lip color yet, there's no better lipstick to start with. Pair Thrillest with Color & Light: Creme in Velvet Melon or Color & Light: Pressed in Papaya 1972 for subtle, peachy harmony.
