Acai berry lipstick?

Sep 25

Acai berry lipstick by Tarte CosmeticsThat’s right, Tarte Cosmetics has a lip couture limited-edition t5 super fruit infused lipstick set. With acai berry extract, goji berry extract and pomegranate extract it sure packs a “superfood punch” – but I don’t think you’re supposed to ingest it! Quoted from Tarte’s website,

The first blend of its kind, the t5 super fruit complex™ is loaded with naturally occurring, antioxidant rich nutrients and vitamins that have been known to deliver refining, anti-aging and skin-restorative benefits with each application.

I suppose it’s rare for products to quote their sources. The logic of antioxidants preventing free radical damage does lend itself to tissue aging prevention, and even repair. However, there is less evidence supporting the idea that applying antioxidants externally has the same affect on the applied area. None the less, if you know an extreme acai berry fan, this could be the perfect, unexpected gift!
