Expat creates new lip-color line

Expat writer and makeup artist Rob Hensley has a new project for you makeup fans--organic, handcrafted lip colors.

Hensley on the benefits of some of the natural ingredients:
Cocoa Butter acts as a protective barrier by supplying and retaining moisture in the lips and skin. Cocoa butter also contains antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, which can help slow the signs of aging. 
Coconut oil is amazing for the lips. While it helps to reduce skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, it also softens the skin and relieves dryness and flaking. Applied topically it helps to prevent wrinkles, saggy skin and age spots. 
Beeswax is very moisturizing, can help protect the lips from the harmful rays of the sun, and has a pleasant smell. It can also help prevent infections and cold sores.
The two lip colors seem to be the first in Hensley's line of organic, handmade cosmetics. $15 gets you a little .35-ounce pot of color--which, according to the website, is more product than designer-brand lip colors for half the price. And natural ingredients are great. I have yet to try these, but I do use all-natural lip balms with cocoa butter and I'll never buy any other kind of balm ago, that's how soft and smooth they make my lips. Now imagine that moisture paired with color.
