Lipstick Essentials from Sara Happ
STEP 1: The Lip Scrub
Sara Happ’s The Lip Scrub ($24) eliminates dry, flaky skin leaving lips ridiculously soft and supple. All Lip Scrubs come packed with food-grade essential oils (like Grape seed oil, Sweet almond oil, Jojoba), which suspend sugar crystals to ensure lips are hydrated while being gently yet effectively exfoliated. Application: Massage a generous amount onto lips using a firm, circular motion. Wipe away with a tissue.
Vanilla Bean – The first flavor Sara whipped up, a comfy delight, like your favorite pair of jeans.
Brown Sugar – The go-to for those who are finicky about fragrance, simple, straightforward, a classic.
Crème Brûlée – Sara’s favorite dessert made into her favorite product, hints of warm, burnt vanilla, the lightest creamy caramel. Pastry chefs rejoice.
Peppermint – Perfect to use in the morning, post-coffee, a wake-up call for your lips.
Sparkling Pink Grapefruit – Designed to be a “true” grapefruit in every way, why mess with something nature made so beautifully?
Sparkling Peach – Bellini meets lip treatment. Not too sweet, not too tangy… just the way we like our favorite cocktail. Cheers!
Confetti Cake – No need to wait for your birthday, we believe you should celebrate in little ways, every day. (Limited Edition)
Peony – In our hometown, Los Angeles, these beauties come but once a year, sugared with just a hint of floral, a new exquisite flavor to date.
In 2005, Sara Happ realized there was a hole in the beauty market. She kept reading to exfoliate your lips with a wet washcloth or baby toothbrush and thought there must be a better way. Sara headed to the kitchen and concocted a cult product herself: The Lip Scrub. With the debut of her much-anticipated follow up, The Lip Slip, Sara vows to offer her customers the richest, most luxurious lip balm imaginable. The Lip Slip was two years in the making and Sara’s sole purpose was to create the greatest lip balm of all time.
All of Sara Happ lip products can be purchased in New York and across the country at Nordstrom Department Stores.
