To capture the perfect kiss you have to have the right gloss to make sure your print lasts a lifetime.

Well we’ve found that perfect gloss and are proud to announce a new partnership with Revolution Organics.

Starting today, when you purchase a DNA 11 Kiss Portrait, you will receive a tube of Revolution Organics 100% all-natural Freedom Lip Gloss in your collection kit to ensure your kiss turns out perfectly.

Revolution Organics specializes in “100% guilt-free glam” meaning that all their beauty products are made from only natural and organic ingredients, are free of synthetic chemicals, parabens, artificial ingredients and petrochemicals and are not tested on animals.

Teaming up with Revolution not only helps us begin the process of “greening” our company, but it also keeps with our tradition of giving back to the community as we’re donating a portion of the proceeds from every Kiss Portrait to the Environmental Defense Fund.

To celebrate our new partnership, we’re also offering 15% off Kiss Portraits until the end of September with the promo code Revolution15.

So feel free to check out our Kiss Portraits and know that not only are you getting a sexy work of art, but you’re also helping protect our environment.

It’s no secret that we think science is about as cool as it gets but it is always heartening to see the idea get a little boost from Hollywood.

Last week on ABC there was an awesome special called i.am.FIRST — Science is Rock and Roll which took an inside look at the 20th Annual FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Championship, a worldwide science and robotics K-12 competition.

The special also included many celebrities singing the praises (literally and figuratively) of science, technology and math including Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg, Josh Duhamel, Miley Cyrus, Jack Black, Justin Bieber, Bono and the  Black Eyed Peas.

As much as we all want to grow up to be rock stars and movie gods, it is science after all that makes most everything in our world possible.

The iamFirst Campaign, hosted on Facebook, helps encourage kids to study science, technology, math and engineering in order to become the people that change our future.

The video above, called My Robot is Better Than Your Robot gives a nice overview of the program. You can also watch the entire program on YouTube.
