A pretty pinky-nude
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.
ROSEWATER is a pretty pink with a neutral base and a considerable amount of blue, making it especially lovely on fair skin types but suitable for all. Kosas describes it as "A blushing rose. The perfect hue our lips long to be." It’s actually the go-to color for Kosas creator Sheena Yaitanes, who thinks of it as “the perfect color for moms on the go — you don’t need a mirror to put it on.”
Pair Rosewater with Color & Light: Creme in Tropic Equinox or Color & Light: Pressed in Contrachroma for a subtly sunkissed glow.
