Forbidden Lipstick: Strange Creature from Rituel De Fille

Strange Creature: A cool gray, the silvery coat of the hunter. An unexpected neutral.

Feral: A dense fog obscures the frozen landscape, revealing glimpses of the surroundings with each breath of the cold wind. Each slow, cloudy exhale dissipates into the surrounding whiteness. Footfalls on icy pine needles sound nearby with delicate shatters. Heart rate quickens. Muscles tense. Lips pull back to reveal sharp teeth. The predator advances, powdery snow shifting underfoot with every silent step.

Finish: Semi-matte

Forbidden Lipstick: An intensely saturated, rich and luxuriant lipstick carefully crafted to reveal bold, daring color and impart enduring moisture.

 

Every Rituel de Fille product is obsessively formulated in-house with the smallest number of ingredients possible. Each carefully-selected pigment, oil and wax has a purpose—we use nothing extraneous and avoid fillers. This attention to detail creates intense color and exceptionally long wear while maintaining a velvety texture.

Finished products and raw ingredients are all cruelty free. Made with 99% natural ingredients. Synthetic dye free. Synthetic fragrance free. Paraben free. Phthalate free. Sulfate free.
