{review} tata harper ‘be adored’ tinted lip treatment

life in blush review of tata harper lip treatment be adoredHello lovelies! This past weekend I was busy working on the redesign of my new condo with the joyous and impossibly beautiful Tiffany Pratt and, throughout the day, would find myself reaching for my Tata Harper tinted lip treatment in ‘be adored’ more so than any of my regular lip balms or glosses -a shocking realization for me! I picked up a sample at last month’s Green + Good event and it’s been by my side ever since.

This 100% natural antiaging lip treatment visibly restores vitality to lackluster lips. A complete plumping and line-reducing formula to help reduce the appearance of those irksome signs of aging and preserve your lips’ youthful look


ingredients: olive oil*, beeswax*, green tea seed oil*, cocoa, apricot kernel oil*, caprylic/capric triglyceride, avocado oil*, acai fruit Oil*, vegetable Oil*, elderberry fruit extract, palmitoyl isoleucine (derived from wheat), date seed extract, spanish lavender extract, meadowsweet*, alfalfa*, calendula*, chamomile*, comfrey*, lavender*, carmine, vitamin E, natural and organic flavors

*ingredients from organic farming

performance: the first thing that struck me was how delicious the scent was -like a field of sun-kissed berries! It adds just the right amount of rosy colour, perfectly balanced by the juicy hydration it gives your lips. I didn’t notice any kind of plumping effect however, but as a self-proclaimed lip balm junkie I found myself applying it less throughout the day which meant that it was definitely living up to the task of providing long-lasting hydration.

price: $32

where to buy: health hut boutique

for-the-win? oh hell yah!

    This treatment isn’t vegan since it contains beeswax and carmine…

    • Hey Jen, you’re absolutely right. I inserted that part in error; the line itself claims to be vegan (as demonstrated here: http://www.tataharperskincare.com/be-adored), but the inclusion of beeswax and carmine excludes this particular product. I’ve since updated my article. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!

  • All what I need :-)x
