Get ready to spoil your lips rotten.
I recently received a Lush catalog in the mail (I’m not sure why as I’ve only shopped there once about six years ago), and I saw that they have an apparently new line of products called Black Rose. Now I swear to you that I’m not being a hater, but it seemed so strange to me that a line called “Black Rose” would neither be black (the lipstick and tint appear pink on the lips) nor rose (the line is scented with citrus and spearmint). Am I crazy, or should Black Rose be… black rose?
Rotten Rose Lip & Cheek Tint is named after my former business – my original Etsy shop was selling my original paintings. I’ve always had this thing for black roses. Although there are no true black roses in nature, I just love their gothic look. Originally Rotten Rose was a lip balm, so it didn’t take long for me to bump up their badassery to a gorgeous glossy black lip and cheek tint, perfectly smooth and beautifully fragrant with deep rich rose. Not a black lipstick person? Not a problem. Rotten Rose can easily be sheered out to deepen your favorite lipstick.
Next week, we go from black to gold with the Gold Rose Salt Bomb, and my line of products that also have nothing to do with roses (remind you of anyone??).
