Over 5,000 years ago, Ancient Egyptians were known to paint on red lipstick as a sign of power. They would actually crush bugs and drain them in order to adorn the lips of queens and kings in alluring tones of blood red. Don’t worry Goddesses - you won’t find that in our red lipsticks!!
As beauty trends come and go, red lipstick has truly stood the test of time. It is the world’s best-selling lipstick shade, signaling how powerful the benefits are for the wearer. In many cultures red is used for love, celebration and deep passion.

Next up - our favourite hero product the Mascaras! No surprise that the Ancient Egyptians were all over this one too…. Back 3500 BC both Egyptian men and women would use kohl and ointments to darken their lashes to make the eyes more attractive. They also saw this as important for self-care with it being protection from the sun’s harmful rays and believed the natural elements worked as an aphrodisiac!
So, coat those lashes! Mascara darkens, lengthens and gives volume to our lashes, allowing us to feel more feminine, empowered and ready to take on the day.

Last but not least - eyeliners! Our kohl eyeliners are formulated in the style of the Ancient Egyptians with natural waxes and oils for a creamy yet long-lasting smudge-proof effect. The Ancient Egyptians would use pigments to define their eyes in honor of the famous God named Eye of Horus. The Eye of Horus was a sacred symbol of protection and people would draw the extended eye onto themselves for magical powers. This trend caught on and became a sign of sacred beauty, which now carries on into our modern day.
Eyeliners have the power to dramatically change the shape and look of the wearers eyes, or just add a subtle smokiness to define and allure.
