Beauty Product Review: Tickled Pink RAW Color Lipstick ($20) Like candy, lipstick is also ingested. A woman who wears lipstick five days a week over 20 years can ingest more than a couple of pounds of lippie! That's why we were tickled pink to discover RAW Color.
Christina Marccacini, founder and creator of RAW Natural Beauty, created a company to offer women safer beauty products. After working for more than 10 years as a product developer for several large cosmetic companies, she grew frustrated with the widespread use of potentially harmful chemicals contained in beauty products.
Spending three years searching for the most innovative natural ingredients that would still deliver superior performance, Christina created RAW Natural Beauty.
All RAW Natural Beauty products are free of parabens, petrochemicals, and synthetic dyes and fragrances. Unlike some beauty products, all of their ingredients are listed on each product.
Because Christina feels it's important that you know about what you put on your skin, she believes *Skin Deep, a cosmetic database, to be an invaluable resource and is proud that RAW Natural Beauty products are listed in their registry.
We have tried many so-called natural products and many have fallen short of getting a rave review. We were very impressed and tickled pink with the creamy, long-lasting, and vibrant color in the RAW Color lipstick in Tickled Pink. The color is pink with a touch of muddiness that would be flattering for any woman. Tickled Pink is reminiscent of Bobbi Brown's Tulle, Laura Mercier's Champagne Pink, or Chanel's PhiPhi.
Other features of RAW Natural Beauty lipsticks:
- Helps prevent transdermal water loss that causes dry, chapped lips
- Proprietary botanical blend designed to hydrate and soothe the delicate skin of the lips
- Contains antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E proven to protect lips against toxins and free radical damage
- Hypoallergenic Free of chemical dyes and chemical preservatives
*Skin Deep is a comprehensive database which pairs ingredients in more than 25,000 cosmetic products against 50 toxicity and regulatory databases. The FDA doesn't require companies to test their own products for safety so this website makes it possible for you, the consumer, to research the ingredients in the cosmetic products that you use.
