At the moment, more and more of you are worried about the composition of their skincare and makeup products, but what about the composition of lipsticks and what brand to buy if you are sensitive to the composition of our beauty products? We bring you all the answers you need in this article dedicated to organic lipsticks and natural origin.
The lipstick is an essential of the makeup bag, however, there are some points that we need to clarify on this must-have product:
It should be known at first that the lips are composed of a mucosa that has the property of absorbing the material, as demonstrated by the use of lip balms. Thus, a small amount of lipstick is ingested daily (between 24 and 87 mg) by lipstick users; over a lifetime, that would amount to ingesting a kilogram of lipstick according to a California study!
A kilo is enough to look at the composition of these lipsticks and the effects that these products have on our health.
The composition of organic lipsticks
There are sometimes some heavy metals whose toxicity is no longer to prove: mercury, aluminum, lead even traces of arsenic … Just that!
This is why natural lipsticks find more and more place in our drawers: even if they do not guarantee a total absence of heavy metals, they are at least rich in dyes and especially they are much more ethical … And that at FuzzUnivers, we love it!
So we have established a small selection of organic lipsticks or natural origin: their formulas are far more natural and ecological than the lipsticks of large retailers. The formulas are mostly composed of beeswax and / or vegetable oils. In addition, their pigments come from mineral and / or organic origins.
The lip pencils from Avril
We’ve already told you about the April brand on our article on organic mascaras, today it’s their lip glossy crayons we want to talk about! These are jumbo pencils with good opacity, a very pretty satin effect for a long enough outfit.
In this case, this product is 100% natural origin and 42% organic … Still an excellent point for the brand Avril! In addition, no product is tested on animals.
Price: 4 €
Beauty Tip: These lipsticks are very easy to fade and are therefore easy to use as a blush!
These reds are sold in a fairly classic grape format, but their shape is quite beveled, which allows a very easy application!
However, worn, they are not very opaque, even the darkest color needs two or even three layers to have a result really without transparency. It is better to trace the outline of the lips beforehand with a pencil of the same color, if you are looking for a more structured effect.
Very nourishing, they have plumping properties that moisturize and protect your lips throughout the day. Ideal for a natural look!
