Mona Lisa: Muse to artists, writers, thiefs—and now, beauty fiends.
French beauty company Miss Ferling claims to have captured the elusive magic that makes Leonardo da Vinci’s model so alluring in a lip balm. Baume de Levre Irise a la Violette (translated into Kiss Me Sweet Mona for us English-speakers) is an all-natural formula that calms, softens, and smoothes lips. The purple pearly coloring comes from its violet and wild pansy extract, leaving mouths with a shine almost as beguiling as the smile in the original portrait.
Though the balm promises to leave lips moisturized, thanks to almond butter and shea butter, it won’t help you break the da Vinci code. But now that Beauty Habit is importing Miss Ferling products, you won’t have to travel all the way to the Louvre to break the famous painting’s beauty code.
