I've been making a list (and checking it twice) of my favorite things from 2014, and according to my archives, Kari Gran's Lip Whips might be the most-mentioned product on this blog. To recap my multitude of praises, these all-natural, peppermint-flavored lip treatments are filled with organic hydrating oils and beeswax, and they're one of my go-to remedies for chapped lips. I also love the fact that Kari Gran is based in Seattle and therefore local to me! This season, Kari Gran has released two new tinted Lip Whips: Naughty*, a deep chocolatey plum, and Nice*, a peachy champagne. Both are much sheerer on the lips than they appear in the pot, so they're subtle and easy to apply on the go. I like wearing Naughty during the day for a my-lips-but-better effect and layering Nice over lipsticks to add a golden sheen and extra moisture. Naughty suits me more than I thought it would... just don't tell Santa!
