Flavored Lipstick

You must have always wondered why do we feel the taste of a lipstick simply by smelling it? The answer is quite simple as, your ordinary lipsticks which are not sweetened or flavored, only have flavor oils as an additional component. These flavor oils are lip safe fragrances as they only smell but not taste. When commercial brands use these flavor oils to make lipsticks, they only put the smell of a certain fruit or product which gives you the idea of the lipstick. More on long lasting lipstick.

Flavored lipsticks, however have an actual sweetener, commonly aspartame or any other sugar substitute. This sweetener tricks the brain into thinking that the lipstick has the particular flavor but the fact is that you are only smelling it. Thus, when you buy flavored lipsticks, you have a tendency to keep licking your lips and ingesting the flavoring oils. There are many organic cosmetic brands which do not use any animal products to make their lipsticks and only use herbal extracts. Thus, it would be advisable that you use flavored lipsticks, glosses and lip balms produced by these companies.
