Sustain Lip Kit – Pink
The SUSTAIN Lip Kit in ‘Pink’ includes our highly pigmented matte lip pencil in ‘Sand’, used to balance and outline your look with a smooth and precise pop of colour. Build it up using our rich and creamy satin lipstick in ‘Nuna’ and finish it off with our lipgloss in ‘Birch’, a light pink shade enriched with sunflower seed oil to hydrate your lips, adding a tint of colour and shine to perfect the look.
Cheekbone Beauty is one of our favourite brands. This Indigenous-owned, founded, and digitally native Canadian cosmetics company was established in 2016. Feel good about your purchase knowing that for every Sustain lipstick purchase, Cheekbone Beauty donates one Sustain lipstick to Indigenous youth. These lipsticks signify potential to the community, a reminder that every Indigenous youth holds tremendous value, and their goals are worthy of reach. To make these donations happen, they work with Indigenous youth organizations worldwide.
