My weakness? Dior. Lip. Glow. Ever since Annie introduced me to the soft, pout-plumping formula, I have been absolutely hooked. It’s the ideal balance of lipstick and lipgloss – not too dry, not too moist and leaves the most delicate trace of color. The only problem is, it’s not exactly clean.

I know, beauty routines are never perfect. 100% nontoxic is tough to achieve, especially if you wear makeup. But when it comes to something you’re applying to your lips all day long, it’s wise to go organic. Just think about it – what’s on your lips normally ends up in your stomach. Would you want to eat regular lipstick? I don’t think so.

Since I’m a big believer in having your cake and eating it too, I set out on a mission to find the healthy DLG. (I know that metaphor didn’t exactly work there, but let’s just go with it). I can’t lie. It wasn’t easy. I spent weeks scouring the shelves of clean beauty havens in NYC. Most things I tried just didn’t cut it. They were either too dry or too creamy, two characteristics that just won’t do for this kind of lip essential.

I was about to give up my search, until I found Henne Organics while browsing a CAP Beauty in the West Village. CAP is one of my favorite beauty stops. They always have the latest and greatest in gross-free beauty, plus the vibe is just so good. In other words: I should have known they’d have what I was looking for.

So, back to Henne. Here’s what’s up in a nutshell… It’s an American-made, female-run brand inspired by the minimalism of Scandinavia. The line of lip tints comes in 4 colors (and they are all conveniently sold online at Amazon right here): Intrigue (dark red), Bare (nude), Azalea (pink) and Coral (self-explanatory, no?). I am partial to the Coral, since it most closely resembles the orangey-pink of my beloved DLG.  It’s not an exact copy, of course, but it sure does make me feel a little less bad when I go to apply it 10+ times a day. Do you have a favorite all-natural lip go-to? Let us know in the comments!

    Very sensual colours. Lovely shades too. Nothing beats a good, disruptive competitor to give the big brands a decent run for their money. Here’s some great info on how to start a business making Spa Quality products.
