Coppermallow, with its honey-sweet apricot blossoms, helps repair and smooth skin in this lightly scented, regenerative lip tint. Natural mica and iron oxide give a soft copper shimmer.

Prickly pear lip tint
Prickly pear fragrance-free lip tint suggests the deep vermillion of a ripe cactus fruit, the sweet rubies of our desert landscape. Enriched with beneficial organic prickly pear seed oil and colored with natural iron oxide, our lip tint offers a subtle deep rusty red and excellent moisturizing properties.
Chocolate flower lip tint
Chocolate in the desert? This sweet little desert flower has an amazing creamy fragrance of rich cocoa with notes of carnation, honey and cinnamon. Our moisturizing chocolate flower lip tint is a deep carmine red-brown, colored beautifully with natural iron oxide.
Rosehip lip tint - NEW!
Wear New Mexico’s late summer high mountain meadows on your lips. This lightly fragranced lip tint is infused with wild rosehips and colored with natural mica and iron oxide. The beautiful light peachy red color gives you a sun-kissed glow and provides regenerative moisture.
What we do at Dryland Wilds:
Make desert perfume from dryland plants in New Mexico. Using distillation, enfleurage and maceration, and tincturing we pull fragrance from the plants we harvest, blending these extracts with other botanicals (essentials oils, concretes + absolutes) to capture the desert’s real scents of place.
Handcraft botanical soaps, balms, and oils in small batches with organic oils and handmade desert perfumes. We use no synthetic fragrances or artificial ingredients ever.
Practice and teach sustainable wildcrafting and wilderness skills in the high desert, prioritizing invasive and common plants for our fragrance harvests. We also help private landowners by removing invasives from their land and teach the many uses of these hated plants.
Work towards less waste in our world, hand-rendering tallow for our soaps from a local butcher (that would otherwise be thrown away), packaging in compostable paper tubes, glass and metal reusable containers and shipping with eco-alternatives to plastic.
Sleep on the sand of desert canyons, search for hours in an ocean of sagebrush for the most fragrant plants, roast piñon nuts, skin prickly pears and drink acorn coffee by a campfire (surrounded by stars, howling coyotes and miles of pristine desert). We love it here and want to bring you the real desert perfumes of this place we call home.
