Pin Up Lip Balm

All Natural Lip Care with Glamorous Retro Flair

There are no words to express the joy, the “joie de vivre” that Pin-up has experienced this year.  Our fans have catapulted us into such an amazing journey that was wrought with pleasurable pain – if that can really exist.   With all the joys there seems to be a counter balance of loss, looking back on 2008 we have lived through the passing of some of our most treasured beauty icons.  Most recently, Eartha Kitt, & Bettie Page, moved on to heaven’s Pin-up Palace. 

As a young girl, Eartha Kitt made her mark in our lives as we would run home to watch her on our rabbit-eared antenna decorated B&W television.  Wow was she just the absolute peak of perfection, her look, the signature rolling of the tongue and the catwoman outfit, sorry Julie Newmar and Halle – no one did it quite like Eartha.

Don’t want to stray OT but getting a little spiritual is the crux of who we are.  Do you often wonder what this life is all about, or your purpose in the scheme of humanity?  It seems that life’s intervals run short for some and well… I won’t go to the dark side.  I like to think that our life purpose can be even furthered continued somehow in our passing on to the next.

It is up to the living to continue to live, I said L-I-V-E.  T.I. & Rihanna in their latest hit say it best “Live your life” – don’t let it pass you by.  Dance in the rain, as I did the other day with my only son who is 4.  We didn’t get sick and we had an absolute B-L-A-S-T.  Be thankful for everything you have and everything that you do not have, and what I mean by that is, the grass always looks greener and cleaner on the other side, tend to your own lawn, feed it and watch it grow.  Bask in the sunshine of the power that is within you to be whatever it is you put your mind to. 

I want to thank all of you who took the time out to try our products, rave about them and blessing me and the pin-up family every step of the way.  My heart will forever be filled with joy!

Five ingredients you won’t find in Pin Up Lip Balms:

  • parabens
  • petrochemicals, or
  • artificial colors
  • artificial flavor
  • artificial preservatives

What you will find in Pin Up Lip balms are 5 natural ingredients certified as such by Organic and Parve-kosher vendors.   So what is the big deal about all-natural, cruelty free, no chemicals added cosmetics, why should you care? The list is endless.


Beeswax contains high levels of potassium which naturally preserves the lip balm from becoming rancid and also has wonderful healing properties. We love using beeswax as a thickening agent, it is our “natural” emulsifier.Its softening, emollient and soothingIt’s innate properties helps skin retain moisture.

– No Parabens or Preservatives. We’re not jumping on that train, if we wanted our lip balms to sit on shelves for till E.T. comes back maybe we would consider adding some preservatives.  Although they really have yet to prove that Parabens and such don’t harm us, we at Pin-up Balm aren’t willing to take that chance.

– No petroleum based ingredients.  Okay maybe grandma thought it was a good idea back in the day, but even she stopped using the stuff when given a choice of some good old fashion expressed oil to the impenetrable solid.  Petroleum definitely has its uses but not in our formula.

– No Animal Testing. Why would you want to test on poor defenseless animals when there are plenty of ex’s available?  Seriously, a formula like ours goes through the rigors of lab testing but animal testing is not one of the avenues we choose.

Our concept was simple.  Yes, that’s what it was K.I.S.S. – Keep it Simple Smarty.  It has been our personal experience that sometimes smart people make the silliest mistakes – so we go for the simple button – I don’t think Staples has made one for us yet.  We didn’t say it was going to be easy but we have proven that we can do it simply put – simple.  You can order your Pin-up Balm K.I.S.S. shirt early 2009.

Life is simply beautiful, when you keep it simple.
