Sometimes they call me the Cosmetic Chef!

I like blending and putting together combinations of natural colors, powders, scents botanicals, oils & flavors like a chef. I definitely spend more time in my kosher lab than in my kitchen at home.

I have thoroughly enjoyed creating our steampunk lip color line of products. It truly appeals to the free spirit in all of us. Mixing our brilliant magic powders with our Lip Ink® liquid lip stain colors along with our tinted lip moisturizers has always been something that I wanted people to experience. The Steampunk lip color line of products is playful and it gives you a truly unique unisex approach to all your lip color fantasies. We will definitely be expanding this line from our current Brownstone Anodized, Victoria Pink Petticoat and Cast Iron colors along with our Neon colors to include more colors like Cosmic Fantasy Blue, Tank Girl Green, Caution Yellow, Industrial Age Gray, Carbon Dated Rust and of course the long awaited Steampunk Red. If you want to travel through Time be sure to test drive our Time Line Traveler Fragrance Balm and of course we will always be coming out with new flavors for our lip moisturizers, we might even bring back my favorite flavor line called “The Art of Flavoring Your Lips” giving you the opportunity to create your own personalized lip moisturizer flavors.

Quick easy solution for smear proof & waterproof eye liner for the Summer months ahead. These three LIP INK® Liquid Lipstick colors listed below, work great and double for eye liner. You can use the lip color doe foot applicator directly from the lip color or a lip liner brush, depending how precise you want your line. And the best part is you will have the world’s only 100% smear proof eye liner for FREE. My favorite picks are LIP INK® Spice, Carmel, and Sagewood, but any of our LIP INK® Liquid Lipstick colors work well for instant free eye liner around the outside of the eye, not on the inside.

“LIP INK® Holiday Chestnut Glow” by Rose Nichols
It has been my experience that a warm chestnut lip color fills the void for the cold winter months. We each have our own idea of what that perfect lip color looks like and we all need a range of warm browns with golden highlights to start. This is my perfect recipe for hitting it right on the mark.

You can mix and match and layer these three LIP INK® lip products to achieve your desired lip color. Start with LIP INK® Chestnut lip moisturizer, add a layer of LIP INK® Smear proof Liquid lip color in Spice, sprinkle some Gold LIP INK® magic powder on the Spice liquid lip color and lock it in, and make it smear proof with another layer of LIP INK® Smear proof Liquid lip color in Spice. You can ice it up with another layer of LIP INK® Chestnut lip moisturizer and you are good to go for the entire evening.

What I like about the lip stain is that it lasts all day. It is 100% smear and waterproof. I know a lot of lip products claim to be 100% transfer proof but this lip stain is no joke. --Featured wearing Coral "German Blondy"

Healthy lips start with exfoliation,then hydration with a lip moisturizer. We all have toothpaste sitting around in our bathrooms. A great way to exfoliate your lips is to put some toothpaste on your toothbrush and brush your lips, then splash with water. You only need to do this when your lips feel dry, once a month or so. This process gets the surface of your lips smooth. Always follow up with lip moisturizer. I like to think that our LIP INK® lip shine moisturizer is the best way to finish your lips when following this procedure. --Rose Nichols

LIP INK® ®Wiki

LIP INK® International is an American cosmetic technology company headquartered in El Segundo, California that creates, manufactures, and sells wax-free smearproof color cosmetics. Having reinvented cosmetics with the first wax-free alternative to traditional lipstick, LIP INK holds multiple international patents for its 100% smearproof color technology.


The company was founded on January 1, 1995, by Inventor, Mother, and "Lip Diva" Rose Nichols in 1995. Lip Ink® International’s revolutionary concept began with Rose’s senior thesis project in Merchandise Marketing at FIDM-LA. (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) It has since grown into a multi-million dollar international enterprise. Rose set out to invent an extraordinary Wax Free, Semi-Permanent Liquid Lip Color because she was tired of her old fashioned lip color coming off on her teeth, clothes, coffee cups, and food. Rose wanted lip color ink that would stay on until she was ready to take it off. She wanted the staying power of ink, without being ink.


CEO, Mother, Inventor, and Lip Diva, Rose Nichols created the first batch of Liquid Lip Color in her own kitchen. She continues to handcraft each color in small batches using only the finest ingredients money can buy; exquisite natural herbs and botanicals that encourage the exfoliation of dead skin cells, revealing softer, smoother lips. Rose was born in California, a born inventor, single mother of one daughter, twice married, spiritual seeker, Bohemian artist, vegetarian, industry innovator, inspirational speaker, successful President who combines her artistic vision, tenacious spirit, and business savvy into her semi-Permanent cosmetic company Lip Ink International. Rose shines in her demonstrable splendor of magic, beauty, and wonder in providing and endless choice of colors. Not only did she create what just might be the most original color line on the planet to date, but she also inspires woman to be unique and creative in their own personal beauty. Rose wants all women to experience being an original, one-of-a-kind goddess with her own unique color on her lips.


Unlike most lipsticks that are waxy and coats lips, Rose’s Lip Ink is sheer, and has a quick-setting formula has the consistency of water but has the feel of bare lips. Meaning, you will forget you have it on until you look in the mirror. The Lip ink Color applies smoothly and easily, offering time-saving, confidence–building solution for active women. Lip Ink uses healthy ingredients, and is backed by multiple patents and industry awards. Lip-Ink cosmetics include Liquid Lip Color, Miracle Brow, Eye Liner, Lip Liners, Tinted Shine, Off (remover), Magic Powders and many other accessories. Lip ink Color is the world’s only wax free, waterproof, smear-proof, ultra-durable, natural Liquid Lip Color. It feels both tingly fresh and moisturizing, while keeping the color where it belongs; on your lips. Rose’s technology is so advanced, it actually requires a patented, yet healthy for your lips, “Off” solution to remove it. Lip Ink products fits into a 3 part eco system: oil, water, botanical color, and are not compatible with other cosmetics because of this. Products are sold in complete kits to make it convenient and easy for our customers to have a great Lip Ink experience. Lip Ink Liquid Lip Color comes in over 50 shades that when layered, make over 2 million individualized colors that you can wear 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You just put it on your lips before you go out and forget about your lips for the rest of the night.
