This is the lip balm you’ve been waiting for. Shown here in "Baseline," a clear shade, LipFuel uses an ultra-hydrating, gel-like network of konjac root to anchor spheres of hyaluronic acid on the lips where they get to work sealing in moisture, protecting against environmental damage, and coaching lips to harness their own healing powers. Other natural oils and vitamins join this nourishing treatment team while the earthy mint scent soothes and energizes you into a sport state of mind.
About this brand
Kosas quite simply takes our breath away. It’s a gold standard for luxe, hydrating, better-for-you ingredients combined with a sense of color and beauty that only an artist could dream up.
Sheena Yaitanes, a painter who studied biology, chemistry, and art history, founded this exquisite brand (pronounced ko-shas) in 2015. She uses a color-mixing technique favored by master artists to create what she describes as “elevated color cosmetics.” Her painting background guides what pigments to use and how to match skin tones to the right products.
