This month at bb we are super excited to bring you a brand new, hot from the lab product that we've been bursting to tell you all about for ages! Finally the secret is out. Get the beauty scoop on luk beautifood lip nourish below...
Who is luk?
luk is the 'beautifood' expression of innovative entrepreneur, Cindy Luken. "What is 'beautifood'?" I hear you ask. As Luken puts it, 'beautifood' is the 'ultimate fusion of beauty, food and science'. luk's first collection of bespoke 100% natural edible lippies epitomise the philosophy of luk; the promotion of nourishing one's body with beneficial foods, full of active nutrients in order to cultivate the most beautiful you possible! Health and wellbeing are central to this luk philosophy, which is why it is not surprising that luk's products contain only 100% natural food active ingredients with no added nasties. What is surprising is that this amazing beauty concept is so unique to luk - after all, it is ingenious to combine the best food with beauty products, especially considering many of us are constantly foregoing nasties in our weekly meals for more healthy alternatives instead. This is just one of the many reasons bb loves luk! Why should your tum have all the fun? Show your lips some natural lovin' too and you won't be able to wipe the smile of your naturally pretty dial!
What is the luk range?
The exclusive luk lip nourish range consists of 7 delicious flavours and shades, each one containing only the best food active ingredients, food flavour and pure food oils and minerals. With an incredibly smooth and soft formula that nourishes, hyrates and protects the lips, luk's lip nourish range gives lips a lustrous freshness without being too shiny or pigmented. The lip nourish 'menu' is also perfect for invigorating your senses in anticipation of spring!
Our product pick?
Just like food, everyone has a favourite lip nourish flavour. Of course, as often is the case in my beauty case, it is simply too hard to choose just one! Here is the list of all seven lip nourish lippies, so you can find the mouthwatering one that suits your 'tastes' to perfection!
Chai Shimmer will call to mind sweet, fragrant spices with its golden brown, almost translucent colour that holds a dash of golden sprinkle shimmer. Perfect to add a touch of spice to your days or to wear full-on for a hot night.
Cinnamon & Mandarin holds a warm, slightly sweet, fragrance to go along with its warm, toasted colour. A sheer tint that is ideal for daytime wear, it will replace any of your lip balms and chapsticks with ease.
Lemon & Mint flavours and scents combine for an effect that is nothing less than purely refreshing. For a natural, brownish-pink tint to your lips that's akin to a slight pinch that brings your natural color to the forefront: think lemon & mint.
Lime & Ginger also contains pink grapefruit to complete the sweet puckering sensation citrus and ginger are known for. In a sheer brown-rose tint, you'll love how tempted you are to put your lips together and blow a kiss.
Orange & Juniper is a classy French flavour pairing that is oh la la delightful and so is the sheer, soft pink colour that adorns your lips after you put it on. Gentle, youthful and natural, its got everyday wearability written all over it.
Tangerine & Vanilla is sweet, heady and addictive! Think dark chocolate and other sumptuous desserts when you think of how this colour will look and feel against your lips. It's sheer, but intense, mahogany colour will go beautifully with sunkissed skin.
Vanilla & Cinnamon is creamy with a hint of spice that goes perfectly with the nude shimmer on your glistening, just nourished and coloured lips. When what you need is the most subtle hint of color and shine, let vanilla & cinnamon be on your mind.
Single flavoured, synthetic lip products with non-active ingredients (read: non-beneficial) are a thing of the past, since the day Luken questioned their place in women's beauty bags. Instead, there is now a lip option which incorporates the fresh, multi-sensory experience of eating pure and healthy food.
Why we love luk?
Think of it like visiting your local fresh food market - the colours and smells are vibrant and natural, you know exactly what you are putting in your shopping bag and you can rest assured that no toxic or harmful ingredients will be making it into your lunch later on that day (or in this case, on to your pout) We also love Luken's pro approach to beauty and wellbeing - check out her beautifood kitchen blog for healthy food recipes to get your mouth watering!
