Trend Alert: Nutritious and Delicious Lip Glosses

Here's a horrifying statistic from the Tarte Cosmetics website: The average woman ingests between two to four pounds of lip gloss in her lifetime. Yuck, right? Thank goodness for a new trend in makeup that will make you feel better about licking your lips. Cosmetics companies are partnering with wellness brands to create lip glosses infused with good-for-you ingredients. Here are two of the trend-setters.

DuWop Elixrstix ($22) are super-smooth lip glosses with medium coverage that aren't gooey or sticky. But what really sets them apart is that these glosses are infused with ancient Chinese medicinal tonics, thanks to a collaboration with Elixr Tonics & Teas.

Elixrstix are available in four shades, each of which comes with a different healing promise. Clarity (nude) is said to enhance your mental agility, Energy (sheer pink) promises to keep you going, Harmony (rose) aims to center your mind and spirit, and Serenity (melon) is designed to relax the senses.

For another healthy lip gloss,

Tarte Inside Out Lip Gloss ($21) is a moisturizing formula infused with vitamins and Borba nutraceuticals. When the glosses are ingested — as they inevitably will be — the ingredients are intended to reduce skin irritation, promote collagen, and add luminosity to your skin. All three varieties are scented with pomegranate and have a shimmery shine. The shades include Om (pale pink), Apple-A-Day (hot pink), and Liquid Sunshine (nude).

I tried the Tarte one is shade Om (light pink). It was a really nice gloss, very little stickiness to it which was nice, but there was hardly any pigmentation on this shade. When they said light pink, they mean light. I would say it’s as close to clear as you’re going to get, so if you want to try it, but don’t like the idea of really strong color, then you should try Om.

They even LOOK tasty, but I can't justify spending $22 on lip gloss.
