Dicentra formosa, inspired by the gorgeous pink hue of the bleeding heart flower. Suggested by Angela T.
Dicentra is a Greek term meaning "double spurred," referring to the way the tips of the petals flare out. Formosa is from the Latin word formosus, meaning "beautiful.". Dicentra formosa, or Pacific Bleeding Heart is a perennial plant with cascades of heart-shaped flowers. All parts of the plant are poisonous, containing toxic alkaloids.
This is a Nourishing Color Creme, which can be lightly used as a lip tint for pale lips, or layered for heavier tint on deeper toned lips. Some ingredient changes from the past Nourishing Color Creme formula includes the addition of Olive oil, Kokum, and Pomegranate butters.
My favorite lip products are wearable tints which are moisturizing. I'll always reach for this type of product before a lipstick or more pigmented product. In formulating these, I tried to balance pigment with wear and texture. The result is a tinted balm that might not seem as "slippery" upon initial application, but which warms up nicely on the lips and wears longer than more glossy and slick formulations.
Delicate cocoa orange scent/flavor.
.15 oz in a clear balm tube with custom label art and shrink wrapping.
