In love with Ilia…

I was recently lucky enough to get to try out PopSugar’s new Must Have program, and became obsessed — OBSESSED! — with the Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioners that were included. When I pulled them from the box, I initially said, “Ooh!” because the packaging was so pretty and chic, but then was immediately wary…because how could lovely boxes such as these possibly contain an all-natural, mostly organic lipstick?

Shocking: they could. And they did! Hello, newest beauty obsession. Ilia’s products are 85% organic, and include ingredients like cocoa butter, aloe, and jojoba and sunflower seed oil. The result is a lipstick that glides on smoothly and feels like chapstick. Seriously. And throughout the day, it won’t dry out your lips at all, like many lip colors will.

I received the colors ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘In My Room.’ Bang Bang is deceiving — the box is a deep burgundy color, but when you pop open the lipstick, whoa red! The great thing about these Tinted Lip Conditioners is that the color is totally buildable, so whether you want just a hint of color or a more saturated look, it’s easy. Mixing colors is also encouraged!

Sometimes I feel like a lot of people still shy away from natural products because they think they won’t work as well, or because the packaging isn’t pretty. Trust, in Ilia’s case, they’ve hit the nail on the head. Hooray!

{Full disclosure: PopSugar sent me a complimentary Must Have box, but had no idea I would be this obsessed with one of the products inside it. I really, really like these lip conditioners!}

    I’m so happy that you liked these! Lipstick is notoriously dirty, so it is wonderful that there is finally a viable option out there.

    These sound amazing! I feel like my lips are always dry no matter what I do to them so wearing lipstick can be annoying sometimes. This sounds like it could be the solution. Thanks for sharing!
