If you aren’t familiar with Ilia Beauty, it’s time you got acquainted. Elegant, modern and gloriously wearable, Ilia’s lipsticks are one of the most used and best loved products in my makeup kit. Their Tinted Lip Conditioners, in particular, are soothing to my dry lips, and the texture is creamy with consistent pigmentation.

This lip conditioner is primarily made of nutritious, nourishing oils such as:
- Castor seed oil: has high concentrations of ricinoleic acid, an unsaturated Omega-9 fatty acid, which is thought to be the source of castor seed oil’s uniquely beneficial effect on skin.
- Jojoba Seed Oil: not actually an oil, but a liquid wax that closely resembles human sebum (aka the skin’s natural oil).
- Sesame Seed Oil: is full of beneficial minerals (such as manganese, copper, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium and selenium) and a particularly cool antioxidant called sesamol.
Colors & Finish
My favorite color, Nobody’s Baby (pictured above), is a sheer nude with a mauve bias. If mauve washes you out, fear not, because an array of other gorgeous colors are sure to please. The beauty of the Tinted Lip Conditioners, as compared with traditional lipsticks, is that the color is sheer enough for a more natural daytime look.
