I’ve got my best natural lipsticks in honor of National Lipstick Day! Switching from mainstream lip products to cleaner versions is a big deal! I mean, don’t get me wrong, you should definitely switch all your makeup over from mainstream products, but the lips are especially important. Why?? Well, for starters studies show that women re-apply their lipstick/lip product at least 5 times a day…so that’s a lot of toxins continually on those kissers. And they also say women consume over 7 pounds of lipstick in their lifetime…whoah! Pretty crazy. So instead of consuming ingredients like tar, lead and other harmful toxins, I think I’ll stick with consuming natural ingredients like vitamin e oil, jojoba oil and castor seed oil.
Plus, it’s not like you have to sacrifice when switching to a cleaner version… there are so many options- they make it easy! I’ve tried a few in my day…well a lot, I love a good bold lip. I’ve whittled down my faves and given you my top lip products. Get your pout ready!
Ok, these lipsticks are just lovely. Every aspect of the lipstick from the way the application glides on like butter, to the moisturizing formula, the subtle scent of citrus, to the chic packaging, no detail is spared when it comes to Axiology lipsticks- none. Let’s first start with the formula. The lipsticks are made with 10 organic/wildcrafted ingredients. There’s no bleeding or feathering, you get smooth application each time with lasting hydration. Instead of using beeswax to keep the long lasting lip color, they use avocado butter and candelilla wax. Literally you read the ingredient list and it’s all things you understand- I love it.
Can I talk about the packaging?! SO chic! They come in gold cases, that pop the lipstick up when you push on the bottom of the case. It doesn’t get cooler than that. Even their paper packaging the gold cases come in are made in Bali from recycled trash? Yes, they’re just next level! Get your Axiology here!
If you haven’t heard of Nudus lipsticks, then let me introduce you. These beauties are handcrafted in Australia and adhere to some of the highest standards in the world. They use only the best oils to create these lipsticks. Oils like pomegranate, raspberry and kiwi-all cold pressed. Oh and it doesn’t stop there. All the colors are created using flowers, fruits, herbs and minerals! They are also gluten free and not tested on animals. Yeah, I have a major love fest for these lipsticks. I picked the color Survivor for NYE because it’s fresh, poppy and bright. Definitely how I look at this new year. Plus, it’s not everyday you can wear a punchy pink and get away with it…or maybe you can?! This is the perfect barbie pink in my opinion and it stays. The Choosy Chick has all the colors, but I must warn you-you’ll want them all. Grab your Nudus Lipstick here!
I could not wait to try Red Apple Lipstick! If you’ve been in the green beauty community long enough, you’ve heard rave reviews about their lipsticks. Is it hype or truth? Friends, it’s truth! The formula is unlike any lipstick I’ve used. It’s so moisturizing-like a little conditioner on your lips. Yet the colors are vivid. A lot of lipsticks can be drying and get gunky on your lips after some wear-not Red Apple Lipsticks. These stay true to color and last! I sampled the colors So Pinkin’ Cute and Audrey. So Pinkin’ Cute is the perfect pop of pink for spring and summer and Audrey is a great neutral pink for anyone to wear everyday. I also sampled their lip liner in Natural. It was the perfect base before applying the lipstick. No bleeding, and the lipstick color lasted longer when I used it. They’re also vegan, and gluten free. Say goodbye to dry lipsticks that don’t last and snag a Red Apple Lipstick instead. These babies are the real deal when it comes to color and moisture! Get your Red Apple Lipstick here!
I’m sure you have all heard my obsession with this lipstick. Guys, it’s a real thing! I had been searching for the perfect red lipstick for a long time, and little did I know I would find it in my Glowing Beet’s Box. It’s the perfect red. Not too bright, not too orange or cherry-but just the right blend. It’s a more classic red. I also didn’t realize how much I would love the Fit Glow Beauty lipsticks. They are moisturizing but not overly, where you feel like you’re wearing a gloss. And the staying power…amazing! I’ve put it on at 5pm for a holiday party, and it’s still there at 10pm at night. I now need these in every color. Did I mention they’re also gluten free and full of nourishing oils? Yeah, they’re pretty great. If you’ve seen me in person lately, you’ve probably seen me wearing this lipstick…its the best! Get your lipstick here!
If you’ve been following me on my Instagram stories, then you’ve seen how obsessed I’ve been with this nude lipstick. A great lip color for every day wear. Also, great for when you want to play up your eyes and keep the lips minimal but still look put together. Have I mentioned how moisturizing Hynt lipsticks are? Well they are! They even have a little lip balm at the top of the lipstick case plus a mirror-I mean does it get any better?! If Bellini Nude isn’t your color I highly recommend you check out some of the other colors, these lipsticks are some of the best when it comes to pigmentation, hydration and packaging. Check them out here!
Vapour Beauty’s Multi-Use sticks offer matte/luminous options and also a Stain Multi-Use Stick. They offer great pigment, but blend in so well, giving that natural look that we all crave. They also have a Stain Multi-Use stick. These also are great for those wanting something that looks super natural and can last all day long. It also is a very buildable color. Their third Multi-Use stick is Radiant, and it offers a color mixed with a highlighter. For those who want a little glow with their color, this is your match. Vapour has also won 7 awards…for this one product! They are $36 and a huge must get product if you ask me. My faves are Courtesan in the Classic Stick, Impulse in the Stain Stick and Mystic in the Radiant Stick. Get your Vapour stick here!
I love this little guy. It’s like a lip balm, but with some color. I have the color Poppy-a perfect pinky hue for everyday wear. It smells like pepperminty goodness too! I’m a sucker for anything with mint. It’s so hydrating, you don’t even need to prep your lip with a lip balm. This is perfect for those who aren’t used to wearing that much makeup, don’t want their lips to standout, and love a good lip balm. But really everyone needs a Nudist stick! Grab your Colorbalm here!
Love their lipstick formula! It’s stays put and doesn’t bleed. It’s creamy but feels like a traditional lipstick. I put this on in the morning and by afternoon it hasn’t budged…my kind of lipstick. Their lipsticks are much more pigmented than their sheerlips, but not as moisturizing as sheerlips. I like them both for different purposes! Get your Zuii Lipstick here!
This was the first multi-use natural product I tried, and it did not disappoint. Everything RMS is wonderful, but with these you are getting 2 for the price of one. Just like the name suggests, these can be applied on the cheeks and lips. They come in a pot as opposed to a stick, are super moisturizing, and literally melt into your skin. On my cheeks these look so natural, but I can also play up the drama by adding more pigment. For my lips I love them because it doesn’t dry them out if I don’t have lip balm, and they don’t look glossy, or really matte like a lipstick…they just kind of sit in the middle between the two, and do their own thing. I’m a huge fan! They last forever too, since they are highly pigmented, you barely need that much for each application. At a cool $36, these are worth the investment. I love the color Smile and Modest.
This was one of the first natural lipsticks I tried, and I keep going back for more. When I want a bold lip, this is the perfect lipstick. With so many colors to choose from, you’ll feel like you’re not missing out on the toxic ones. Siren is definitely a long wearing lipstick compared to others I’ve tried. I’ll put it on in the morning and it will still be there in the afternoon. Not as vivid but definitely still color packed. I always apply a lip balm before to prep my lips. It helps even my lips out and fills in any cracks so the lipstick just glides on. (I find this especially important when working with a long wear lipstick). These are highly pigmented- which I love! When I want a bold lip that will last, these are the ticket. Oh and they smell yummy too. They have a cherry/ fruity scent… ah-mazing! Get your Vapour Siren Lipstick here!
Really anything Kjaer Weis is amazing and the lip tint is no different. It gives a matte color, that’s highly pigmented. They come in silver tins and you can either use a lip brush or your finger. I prefer to use my finger, it warms up the product a bit before putting it on my lips. Comes in 11 shades. I always apply a lip balm before using the lip tint for the smoothest application. If you’re used to lip tins, this is your jam! When you first purchase anything Kjaer Weis it’s always going to cost more. The second time around you keep the silver tin, and just order a refill and you usually save $20. Get your Kjaer Weis Lip Tint here!
