Meet the Lipstick Angels

headshot-renata

This week, we’re kicking off our #COLORMEBRAVE campaign, an effort to encourage all women– wherever they may be in their own personal health journeys–  to prioritize breast cancer screenings, and to recognize those who have walked through cancer themselves or know a loved one who has. This has been a cause dear to our hearts ever since we met our friend and makeup artist Renata Helfman, whose non-profit has given the idea of self-care a much deeper meaning.

For over fifteen years, Renata has worked in Los Angeles as a celebrity makeup artist and lover of all things clean beauty. Looking to expand her understanding of non-toxic beauty, Helfman began volunteering in 2011 with cancer patients at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. During her time there, she quickly realized there were no wellness treatments in place at the hospital to help patients cope and to find joy in the midst of difficulty and pain. When the time came to launch her nonprofit organization, Lipstick Angels, it only made sense to stick to what she knew best — beauty.

Almost eight years later, Lipstick Angels serves around 10,000 and counting clients annually at six different comprehensive cancer centers nationwide. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to volunteer or be a part of a Lipstick Angels event, then you likely quickly realized that their services and presence aren’t what you find at a typical cancer care and awareness event. Lipstick Angels’ overarching mission is to shed light on the importance and beauty of self-care for women and men at their most vulnerable stages. The nonprofit provides patients with a wide range of educational beauty support services bedside or while they are receiving chemotherapy infusions. Their complimentary services include makeup application, hydrating facials and skincare, hand massages and aromatherapy using only natural and/or organic beauty products.

 Over the years, Lipstick Angels has been able to create a safe and encouraging space for thousands of cancer patients, and has reminded all of us that taking the time to feel beautiful is something that everyone deserves, regardless of whether you get to care for yourself at home or in a hospital. Their personalized one-on-one beauty and skin care services give patients an opportunity to feel pampered, supported, provide time for them to learn and share from each other, and to create a peaceful and enjoyable experience that feels unique and unattached from a normal hospital stay.

Similar to Lipstick Angels’ commitment to clean beauty and service, our mission at W3LL PEOPLE renata-w3ll-people-optimist-lipstick goes far beyond the confines of  simply making you look good. Our promise since the beginning has always been to create products that encourage self-expression and creativity without jeopardizing your health or managing perceptions of what is or isn’t “beautiful”. Safe, non-toxic, beneficial ingredients are the cornerstone of each product in our collection, and our Optimist Lipsticks are no exception. Each of the 7 semi-matte shades in the collection is formulated with organic shea butter, jojoba oil, vitamins, and omega oils to ensure a long-lasting, hydrating, botanical benefits for your lips. Our products never contain parabens, dyes, fragrance, artificial preservatives, sulfates, petrochemicals, nanoparticles or any other questionable fillers or ingredients. 

Our latest collaboration has left our hearts filled with gratitude and we are so excited to share it with you, and we’re even more excited to feature  it during Breast Cancer Awareness month as a way to support and recognize all of the brave & beautiful women who have fought the battle against breast cancer.

Meet BRAVE, a bright coral, limited-edition shade of our Optimist Lipstick! We created this fearless shade in partnership with our friends at Lipstick Angels, and we’re most excited to share that all proceeds from the sale of BRAVE will be donated to support their mission to restore and strengthen the dignity, hope, and self-esteem of cancer patients through nurturing beauty support services.

BRAVE is only available while supplies last, and we’re thrilled to offer you the opportunity to contribute to the very important work of Lipstick Angels, and to look good doing it. 🙂 

Our Co-founder and Clean Beauty Makeup Guru, Shirley, has created an easy, glowing look using BRAVE as the centerpiece to tie it all together:

To complete this look, we used a couple swipes of  the Narcissist Foundation Stick across the complexion to cover redness. We love this foundation stick for its versatility as a concealer, foundation, and even an eyelid primer. We followed it up with our Bio Bronzer Stick and Bio Brightener Cream Stick for a non-greasy, kissed-by-the-sun glow. After a swipe of our beloved Expressionist Pro Mascara & Brow Gel, we finished the look off with our BRAVE Lipstick. With tones of bright coral taking center stage, this lipstick is long-lasting and can easily be blended for a soft or more dramatic look depending upon how you’re feeling.

We love sharing new products regardless of the occasion or mission behind it, but it feels particularly special to release a shade in partnership with Lipstick Angels, and to support a nonprofit that understands that beauty should be attainable for everyone, all of the time. 

We hope you love this gorgeous Optimist Shade as much as we do and that every time you put it on you’re reminded of the work of Lipstick Angels, and all of the women and men they’ve had the opportunity to love on and support.

Optimist Lipstick Collection by W3LL PEOPLE

lets-be-iconic

A bold pop of lipstick is one of the most iconic looks in beauty. When paired with glowing skin and defined lashes there’s simply no stopping you from feeling like your fiercest self. W3LL PEOPLE has long dreamed of adding a good-for-you lipstick to our collection of nontoxic products, and this fall we officially launched our Optimist Lipstick Collection.

Over a series of months, our team tested and retested the formula to ensure that it could outlast it’s toxic competition, while still presenting you with the impressive ingredient deck that you’ve come to expect from our high-quality, nontoxic products.  When it comes to color, we wanted bold pigments that could wear like a long-lasting stain, while still looking and feeling like a luxe lipstick. Our Optimist Lipsticks are currently available in 6 iconic shades that were thoughtfully curated to provide you with a collection of equally loveable and wearable shades that flatter all skin tones.

Optimist is a USDA certified organic lipstick that provides high-impact, long-lasting color, intense moisture, and a weightless semi-matte texture. Like all of our products, it has been formulated using beneficial botanical ingredients like organic aloe, organic shea, organic castor oil, organic capuacu butter, luxurious silk, and organic beeswax.

With such an incredible formula we couldn’t help but upgrade the packaging, as well. Our Optimist Lipsticks come in an innovative graphite tube that locks and opens with the press of a button, ensuring that you never end up with lipstick in your purse or makeup bag, and the mirrored end makes lipstick touch-ups on-the-go quick and effortless.

W3LL Tip No. 3

W3LL Tip No. 3: treat your lips with a balm that is natural, pure and loaded with aloe, green tea and chamomile to treat your lips all winter! | W3LL PEOPLE

Oh winter, you can be so charming! Holiday parties. Time with family. Maybe a few gifts tied up with string, if you’re lucky! And along with everything merry + bright the winter months bring along with them dry air and colder temperatures. Two elements that can wreak havoc on our precious skin.

The area around our mouth, including our lips, can be one of the first areas to show signs of aging, it’s also area that deserves products with purest ingredients! Most products used on and around your mouth are easily ingested! Your precious pout can be dramatically effected by winter weather and lack of self-care can lead to chapped lips. Chapped lips are painful and can lead to a vicious cycle if steps are not taken to prevent it as soon as the weather begins to change.
