My latest obsession is edible lipstick. Specifically the kind made with red wine.

natural makeup bite beautyLast year I embarked on a quest to reduce the toxic metals in my makeup bag, but it’s hard to find a great lipstick that’s good for you too. Until now! I love Bite Beauty. The colours are rich and bold, and I don’t feel like I’m wearing weird, patchouli-scented makeup.

My favourite product is the High Pigment Matte Pencil in Quince (deep rose) and Bramble (a rich black currant). Each pencil includes resveratrol derived from red wine, which fights free radicals and has great anti-aging effects.

I wear them on their own and do the layer-blot-layer thing. The colour looks great and lasts for several hours (5 hours at last count, although there was some colour transfer to my wine glass). And for some reason my lips look bigger too (bonus!).

Available at Sephora for $24.
