Let us introduce you to the most beautiful, colorful little items ever to have emerged from our in-house laboratory: the Volumizing Natural Lip & Cheek tint! We are so thrilled to unveil these treasures to you: three shades that deliver a more modern beauty experience by combining safe, lush natural pigments with the latest in age-defying skincare technology.
Calling them mere makeup products would be an understatement: these tints deliver the perfect pop of natural color to lips and cheeks while helping to fill the look of fine lines, for skin that has the irresistible flush and volume of youth.

In this post, we’ll share with you the inspiration, science and formulation process behind these tints – plus, we’ll take a close look at the colors themselves with photos, swatches, et. al!
Meet our three shades: Very Vivacious, Very Charming, and Very Sweet. Each one is long-lasting (we’ve been wearing them all day / every day, and have found them to last 6+ hours on lips and cheeks), easily blended, and feel satin-smooth on the skin. For the best application experience, we recommend applying them to skin that’s been freshly moisturized and, ideally, exfoliated, so it’s soft and supple.
Very Vivacious is a modern coral. It’s an energetic yet mature pop of color that you can wear every day, and that’s versatile enough to give you a variety of looks. When worn lightly, it gives a warm hint of coral; when layered, its color is rich and dramatic. Very Charming is our answer to every woman’s search for the perfect pink. It’s the ideal, classic candy pink and gives the cheeks a natural looking flush. Layer for a playful and strong pink color. Very Sweet is a soft, effervescent peach that can be used as a highlighter in addition to a blush and lip tint. It’s soft shimmer can be layered on top of either of the other shades for a bit of added glow. There’s more than meets the eye with these tints: they’re packed with skin-healthy and age-defying ingredients. The base of the formula is a blend of moisturizing and soothing Coconut Fruit Extract, which gives these tints a silky-smooth skin feel, and Jojoba oil, which helps hydrate while improving skin texture. Their formulas include high performance ingredients: Spanish Lavender Extract helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, while Lipoamino Acid Technology provides cheek-plumping benefits and boosts elasticity. These two ingredients are all about adding benefits beyond beautiful color, for skin that is its healthiest and most youthful self. Below and above, see some behind-the-scenes shots from the lab, where we create these colorful beauties. See the slight shimmer in the formula? That’s from Mica, a natural mineral that gives a gorgeous iridescence that softly reflects light and makes the skin glow. These formulas are the result of countless hours spent bent over petri dishes and high-speed mixers, leveling the natural minerals and pigments in the formula by tenths of a percentage till the shade was just right. We were aiming for a modern coral, a petal pink and a soft peach – but, of course, we weren’t willing to compromise with synthetic pigments or ingredients. Have you ever taken a look at the ingredient list on your favorite blush or lipstick? Sometimes there’s weird stuff in there – color derived from coal tar, heavy metals, who knows what. We wanted only the purest stuff on the planet. Our color comes from iron oxides, which are naturally occurring mineral deposits. There are synthetic versions and natural versions – ours are 100% naturally derived.
Remember our Open Lab event? In July, we gave a sneak peek of our Lip and Cheek Tints to the press in New York City, with a full mini-lab Lip and Cheek station in our event space, complete with customizable lip shades concocted by Amanda, who leads our in-house product research and development activity. Here are Tata and Amanda, two members of the team who developed these shades from scratch, proudly sharing their hard work!
We hope you’ll love these new additions to our line, and will enjoy wearing true beauty without compromise! Let us know what you think of the colors as you explore – if you share photos of yourself wearing the tints, just tag us @tataharper on Instagram and we’ll share your post!
