HEALTH & BEAUTY: What’s in Your Lipstick?

We’re minimalists when it comes to wearing makeup. Often opting for makeup-free Mondays and makeup-free Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays….okay, pretty much makeup-free everyday :). The only cosmetic we always keep in our purse is lipstick.

Statistics indicate that we “eat” about four pounds of lipstick every year. While that statistic is debatable, there’s no doubt that we ingest a lot of toxic chemicals including those that may be in the lipsticks that we put on our lips, on our bodies.

We’re always in search of the right shade of lip color. And, it’s taken us some time to research and find the right lipstick that’s free of as many toxic chemicals as possible. Our NS Fans have expressed similar frustrations in finding 100% artificial chemical-free lip stick. So, we suggest weeding out as many as possible.

We discovered several major lipstick brands that we like. The following are ones that we discovered at Sephora (we love that store!):

  • Bite – Our go-to brand for lip color, offering smooth and silky coverage that we like.
  • Tarte – Some of the lipsticks felt a little chalky and drying to our lips, yet we like their shades.
  • Fresh – Sugar lip tint provides a shimmer of color, for when we just want some sheer coverage.

There are many out there and we love playing at Sephora’s cosmetic counters :). We encourage you to find the right lip color for you and, most importantly, find ones that are free of as many artificial chemicals as possible.

What’s your go-to lipstick?

Thank you for being kind to your body!
