your lips but better

Ever since we got back from the Sonoma Coast, I’ve completely re-evaluated my skincare & beauty cabinet.

As we were driving to Bodega Bay for our wedding vacation, I realized I left ALL my makeup & skincare at home. All I had was one product – a small vial of Everyday Oil, & a few lip products that were in my purse. You can read a bit about it all here but on Monday I have a FULL post coming

…because…

ever since we got back, I haven’t been wearing makeup in 2020 – at all!

When I got home, I threw out a LOT of my makeup products: I got rid of about 90% of my cabinet.

I knew January was going to be a chill month with no big events or commitments – we just had our biggest event, after all! So to be honest, it was pretty easy to give up.

Erik & I recently had our first date night out as a married couple so I treated myself to a brand new lipstick as I ease back in.

But this was one in particular was on my radar because ever since I got rid all my products,, I’m also making the switch to 100%, what I call, Beauty with Benefits.

To me, Beauty with Benefits tend to err more on the skincare side than makeup. Basically, making your skin look better even after you remove it – does this make sense? here & here & here are some examples. I find that the majority of Beauty with Benefits are on the clean & natural side so those are the kind of brands that interests me.

I’ve had the Kosas Weightless Lip Color in Rosewater on my radar for some time soooo off to Sephora on Union, I went.

Kosas was on my radar because I read that they are clean & that the founder Sheena Yaitanes has a background in organic chemistry. My absolute fav products {in life too!} are those that are a hybrid of nature & science. I also love that Kosas is based in California! I love California brands.

As soon as I sampled it, I KNEW it was the one. The texture was divine – although it’s a lipstick, it feels like balm.

I love the ingredients: antioxidant green tea, rose hip, grape-seed, & sweet orange, shea butter, mango butter, & more! They are super hydrating & universally flattering. Good to know: all of Kosas is made without any almond oil, if you have an allergy.

The #1 thing I look for lipsticks & makeup in general is CUSHIONY. This is absolutely cushiony in both texture & finish. This is on the “dewy” side, but not a gloss… just how I like it. Cushiony 🙂

Rosewater in particular on my radar because it’s designed to be your lips, but better. A cool-toned, slightly translucent, nude rose designed to instantly enhance your lips. Putting it on makes me look instantly refreshed with a healthy glow! It’s seriously perfect.

Basically, my makeup routine over the past few weeks has been:

everyday oil on the face + brows groomed up with Jamaican black castor oil & a swipe of rosewater on the lips… like below!

This shade is a perfect “everyday natural” & goes with any outfit – I love how effortless is

I can’t wait to explore Kosas some more! Other products on my radar are: Vegas lipstick, Stardust lipstick, LipFuel Balm {can’t decide what shade tho!}, & if I ever introduce back face makeup, their tinted face oil is first on my list!

Any other Beauty with Benefits I need to try??

shop kosas!
