issue ten : the icons & iconoclasts

As you now know (because you have been reading UNTAINTED religiously over the last couple of weeks, obvs), in this issue I have enlisted the help of other iconoclastic artists and valued peers to add their opinions to the recommendation-party. When I reached out to Crystabel Riley (if you don’t know this woman’s amazing work, best you get googling) to ask her about an untainted alternative she felt worthy of deeming an “iconic product,” she came back with one of my all-time favourites. Twelve Beauty Hyaluroil Lip Treatment. This lip oil has been a kit staple and personal essential for about five years now, and every time I’ve used it on a model or client, I have seen a slow-motion, physicalized reaction of wonderment and delight as they feel this product working on their lips. So much so that we made a little film about it…

This is what Crystabel had to say about why she chose this as her iconic product.

The Twelve Beauty Hyaluroil Lip Treatment is my iconic product. It’s the ultimate ‘skincare as make-up’ product as it looks like a glassy lip gloss but it’s actually full of vitamin E and natural hyaluronic acid to plump lips. It really has the best longevity, especially combined with drinking water, which is one of my biggest battles of hydration on the models I work with! 

I recently used it on 10 models for a show at LFW and I barely had to top it up. The hydration seemed to maintained really well.

It comes in a 10ml UV-protective black glass bottle with a glass marble roller for easy application on-the-go. Which is essential as it is recommended that you reapply regularly (every four hours for the first two days of use) to get your lips back to their perfect level of hydration. Don’t forget to apply before bedtime for plump, hydrated lips in the morning!

It’s an ideal untainted alternative to M.A.C’s iconic LipGlass, and it comes with the added benefits of actually caring for your lips… and the planet. Thanks to it being formulated from sustainably sourced botanical ingredients it’s ideal for vegan beauty lovers and editorial prowess too. I guarantee you that it will come in handy during these cold winter months when we sit in artificially heated environments all day and don’t drink enough water to counterbalance how dehydrated we all become in winter.


Gently exfoliate your lips using an old toothbrush or some sugar scrub, to remove any dead, flaky skin before your first application. When using it as a treatment (rather than a lip gloss) be sure to really rub your lips together to help get those hyaluronic molecules in motion for maximum hydration.
