It’s rare that a lip color can approach perfection, but I was actually astounded by the comfort and ease by which Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner slipped onto my lips like a silky curve-hugging dress. My lips were instantly transformed from drab to hydrated and polished with just the right amount of color to go from day to gloaming. Relatively new on my radar, Ilia‘s foundation is a connection between organic beauty and contemporary fashion. The line has already earned my respect for a high quality product which is versatile, healthy, and beautiful. The two colors I love most are Bombora and Darlin, the former being an easy red tint which turns out a sheer rosy color when applied. Darlin is a summery Peach Nude for any skin tone which I guarantee will add that finishing polish to any look.
For travel, I like to keep my makeup simple and efficient, but lip color is always a must. Paired only with eyeliner, the Ilia Conditioners efficiently freshen a look so I can go from plane to dinner with a twist and slide. The natural but color-kissed look is healthy both inside and out with moisturizing cocoa and shea butters to soften and nourish. Nothing is sacrificed in these pretty white tubes, including protection from the elements. The SPF is a staple for being outside or even near a window no matter what season, but especially during the hot days of August when the rays are strong and penetrating, ample protection is needed. Antioxidants from organic avocado, sesame, cranberry, and passionflower oils battle the aging effects of environmental stressors. I can’t really ask for more in a perfect package!
