Greener, Safer, Better Lipsticks & Glosses

Guide to Better Lipsticks via mindfulmomma.com

There’s nothing like a good lipstick to make you feel ready to conquer the world. But did you know that many popular lipstick brands contain lead and other potentially harmful chemicals? That’s the last thing you want to worry about in your busy life.

Part of my mission to help you find greener, safer, better beauty and personal care products is to share some of the brands I’ve used and loved. All of these lipsticks and glosses are free from lead, parabens, petroleum, sulfates, phthalates, nano particles, artificial dyes and synthetic fragrances. And animal testing? No way!

Hope you groove on these safer lipsticks as much as I do! And please let me know what other brands you love or would like to know more about.

  1. Vapour Siren is my absolute favorite too!

  2. I haven’t tried Vapor Siren yet, and you know I’m a huge fan of Beautycounter. Great write up, thanks!

  3. I haven’t tried many of these. Can’t wait! I use Zuzu lipgloss and love it.

  4. I’ll have to look into these. My favorite lipstick brands are 100% Pure and Ava Anderson Non Toxic.

    Thank you for mentioning Mineral Fusion. I love their products. It was hard finding a truly , real natural brand that gives color. Mineral Fusion is it. Have you tried their eye shadow trios? There are a lot of shades to select from and the best – they stay on. Oh, and they have shimmer and mattes colors. Thank you mindfulmomma, you are always on it for those of us who are natural-ites. Love to see more on Mineral Fusion.

  6. I have to avoid Iron Oxide in my cosmetics, due to my allergy to IO and Nickel. Iron Oxide is the main ingredient that gives cosmetics their color. Yikes! So I use lipstick by 100% Pure company. http://www.100percentpure.com/ This company offers fruit pigmented make up. Not all of their lip color products are Iron Oxide free. But the fruit pigmented products do the trick for me!

  7. This is great information Micaela! Thanks for investigating this important issue and finding some great options for us to use! We just did an article on the harmful chemicals found in our personal products; it is a shame all these chemicals are added and we need to look out for them.
