A Cult You’ll Want to Join

Untitled design

Suburban Warrior. Bitter Buddhist. She Said Yeah. Kundalini Hustle. These are just a few of the clever names of our new favorite beauty obsession. Oh yeah, and Tenderoni, for us Gen Xers. Smith & Cult has made appearances in higher-end beauty salons and spas across the U.S. and we’re in love!

The nail lacquers are easily eye-catching in a unique cylinder-shaped bottle with shiny tops, those names, and the colors… Then, we tried the lip collection, yes please! Feels like a glorious silk Diane von Furstenberg dress wrapped around our lips, if that could be possible, that’s what it feels like.

Worth the splurge (and they aren’t really that expensive compared to other high-end brands) because they are made with better quality ingredients, lending to staying power – the nail polish is high-shine and long-wear. Not to mention they have zero gunk that is literally absorbed into the body and ingested from lip products. The nail polishes are 8-free and formulated without dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, or triphenyl phosphate.

And those divine lip products include three selections – a shining lacquer, a lip stain, and a matte lip stain. They are vegan and void of gluten, parabens, mineral oil, and petrolatum. What they do contain is natural coconut essence to smooth and extend wear, portulaca pilosa extract to moisturize and add volume to lips, and hydrating peptides and green tea to condition and protect lips. Look for this fabulous product line and you too will join the cult.
