our Story

BostonMints naturally refreshing lip gloss began as a custom lip cosmetic for use under the punishing lights of photo shoots. Boston-area make-up artist, Joanne Ilacqua shared the lip gloss with models she had worked with, and word spread. Joanne sold her BostonMints lip gloss in-person, then in stores and at her spa.

Now they are available online and in many Boston Area boutiques, salons and spas.
