KOSAS Cosmetics lipsticks. Only 4.

I’m so excited to tell you about a NEW NEW NEW brand that just launched a few months ago.  KOSAS COSMETICS.  Just lipsticks.  Only 4.  The only four colors you’ll ever need.  Here’s the skinny:

Kosås designs color cosmetics with an effortless, elemental and undone aesthetic.  Small, handmade batches of lip color are consciously crafted to flatter any skin tone while capturing the freshness of the moment.  The end result is a product with a firm belief in an essential truth: beauty reflects nature.The process begins with a love affair between art and science.

I love the fact that they got these lipsticks down to four colors.  Imagine how simple it is to have four great colors, and not to have to worry about anything else.  Why does it work for anyone?  I’ll tell you why:
I actually got to work on the imagery and campaign for Kosas.  We had four models, with completely different skin tones, eye color, hair color, and ethnicity.  We took photos of all of the girls wearing all of the colors.  THEY LOOKED GREAT ON ALL OF THEM.  It was so cool to experience.  And I was obsessed with the shoot because it was completely my esthetic.  Natural, dewey, textured lashes and brows, with color on the lips.  Perfection!

kosaseditorial3I used these all the time now on photoshoots, and the models go crazy for them.  In most cases, models complain the most about their lips drying out during the shoot from the lipsticks.  When I use Kosas, they are all curious what lipstick I’m using because they’ve never experienced something so moisturizing and yummy on the lips.  The smell of the essential oils are incredible too!  Sweet orange oil, YES PLEASE!
