the lipstick that bohemian dreams are made

this bohemian’s dreams, at least. ¬†it’s called stardust. ¬†need i say more? ¬†MY PERFECT LIPSTICK IS CALLED STARDUST.bb kosas stardust5.jpgok moving on from how happy that makes me. ¬†i have been wanting to try a kosas cosmetics lipstick since they came onto the scene about two years ago. ¬†they are full of great ingredients and don’t use any of the bad ones, including parabens, pthalates, mineral oil, phenoxyethanol, fragrance, petrolatum, and more. ¬†all of kosas’ colors are natural-looking and understated, even the darker or brighter ones. ¬†they are not only beautiful but unique, and a true staple for anyone, makeup lover or not.

so back to the colors. ¬†i was pretty set on getting rosewater, which is described as a blushing rose, with a hydrating finish. ¬†and then kosas released more shades for s/s 2016, including stardust. ¬†and i was sold! ¬†how could i resist a name like that? ¬†stardust is described as a sheer neutral nude with pink and brown undertones, like a summer tan. ¬†ok, now how could i resist THAT?bb kosas stardust2.jpgbb kosas stardust1.jpgbut in all seriousness, stardust is exactly how kosas describes it. ¬†it is the perfect neutral brown pink, with not too much brown but not too much pink. ¬†it is truly my lips but better. ¬†it’s also the perfect level of color, so it doesn’t make it too obvious that i’m wearing lipstick. ¬†the finish is hydrating but not slippery, and extremely long lasting. ¬†honestly it really is like a summer tan – i just feel better with it on.

at $24, these lipsticks are expensive, but also in the exact price range of other natural and conventional lipsticks. ¬†they are packaged in a beautiful black tube with white writing – i did hope it would be metal packaging but it’s plastic. ¬†that was kind of disappointing but it also means that it is a lot lighter to carry around. ¬†this is the first lipstick that i have wanted to wear every day and that doesn’t make me feel overdone – it’s just the perfect amount of oomph for me.bb kosas stardust3.jpgmy only question is, why did it take me so long to bite the bullet? ¬†pun very much intended.stardust1.jpgbb kosas stardust4.jpg
