The Lipstick Effect: Beautycounter’s Statement Maker Satin Lipstick

I’ve never been much of a lipstick gal, but I do love wearing makeup and will add lipstick when the mood or right event strikes. And honestly, part of not loving lipstick has been not having a product I feel stayed put, nourished my lips and didn’t dry them out, while also delivering highly pigmented pop of color. But I am so *jazz hands* excited to now have a solution to all that: Beautycounter’s Statement Maker Satin Lipstick!

If you think we’re just selling lipstick…

Did you know even putting on lipstick can help lift your mood? Anne Lamott wrote, “Joy is the best makeup. But a little lipstick is a close runner-up.” Turns out, making a little extra effort often makes us feel like we are better prepared to face the day and take on the world.

In fact, a study by Harvard Medical School tested the psychological phenomenon of “the lipstick effect” on graduate students and found that the group which wore makeup had “better self-esteem that may bring positive effects on the cognitive performance of an individual.” [source] The effect of makeup even proved to be a better predictor for higher performance than mood boosters like listening to positive music!

Acts of self care don’t always have to consist of long, exhaustive activities. Sometimes it can just be about making the effort to do the things that make you feel like the main character, because you are! So, if you’re feeling at all like the world is on fire around here, you’re not alone. And, I’ve got NEW lipstick for that!

But, if you think we’re just selling lipstick, you’re not paying attention… Beautycounter has lobbied for the successful passing of TWELVE better beauty laws in just over 10 years. You can read about the most recent one from Washington state – the most restrictive of all laws so far – here. Our mission is to put safer products into the hands of everyone. And, we’re doing just that by continued legislative change!
