There’s no way of keeping our lips sealed about this all-natural lipstick. It’s handmade in Hawaii and has been the latest rave amongst island beauts.
Made “with love and pure ingredients,” Kissed by Maui mixes all the good organic stuff like, castor, jojoba, vitamin E oils and pikake essential oil into one sexy stick. I can’t get enough of the Pink Passion color, which Kissed by Maui describes as, having “a way of rekindling our passion for life, love and happiness!”
Other shades include, Dawn Patrol, Warm Ginger, Hawaiian Spice and Hula Girl Pink. Because they go on pretty light (like a lip gloss), Kissed by Maui can be warn just about anywhere – whether it be the beach or the beach bar. It has a little more pigment than a tinted balm but still very pretty for puckering up.
As of now, the lipstick can only be bought at certain Maui boutiques (Collections in Makawao and Green Ti Boutique & Massage in Wailuku); otherwise, get your lip-smacker online. Shipping might be a little on the expensive side (about $5 to Oahu, so I would imagine it would be much more if it’s going to the mainland). The lipstick may require some splurging of its own because one stick costs $17.
I love that each tube comes with a list of ingredients, all of which come from zero-waste manufacturers and have not been tested on animals. The exterior design is absolutely adorable, a light wooden print gives each stick a tropical feel.
Hopefully Kissed By Maui will make it over to other neighbor islands, so I can replenish my supply via car and not plane.
