Natural, non-toxic lip products that also perform beautifully? I’ve got the list! These all-natural lipsticks, stains, and tints are as healthy as they are gorgeous.


My grandmother was one of those ladies…

Who leaves lipstick marks like a trail of breadcrumbs. Traces of her presence were always left on napkins, glasses, and (of course) our faces — wiping our cheeks after saying hello or goodbye to her became second nature.

She specifically loved herself a bright cherry red. To this day I can picture her applying it using the small mirror in her floral, silk-covered lipstick case.

Me, I personally prefer a more neutral mauvey red. But I definitely share my grandmother’s love for a colored lip!

Unfortunately, most common lip products contain some nasty ingredients.

And with the average woman eating over four pounds of lip product over her lifetime (yep, four pounds!), whatever we’re putting on our lips better be non-toxic and not contributing to our body burden.

So of course I’ve tried many many natural and non-toxic lip products over the years. These below are my favorites! (So far at least…)


6 Gorgeous Non-Toxic Lip Picks: Lipsticks, Stains, and Tints

1. Beautycounter Lip Sheers

Lip-Sheers-BeautyCounterMy absolute favorite! So moisturizing and super silky. I have both Rose and Scarlet. Though “sheer” they are very pigmented and buildable, with a glossy finish. They can be worn alone for a bold look or layered with balm for subtle color. Plus they have a yummy vanilla scent.

2. 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Glazes

100 percent pure lip glazesA beautiful full-coverage lipstick option. These are more long-lasting than the Beautycounter lip sheers, with a thicker formula that stays put quite well. I have the Raspberry color and love it!

3. Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Stains

jane iredale just kissed lip stainsThese are really just the coolest ever — their “all-natural formula reacts and adjusts to your own chemistry for an irresistible shade that flatters your skin tone.” They look so light but then magically transform to a much deeper, more vibrant color once on the lips. They give a long-lasting stain with a glossy finish, and have a slight strawberry scent that’s really lovely. I have the Pink and Red colors and love them both.

4. W3ll People Nudist ColorBalms

w3ll-people-nudist-colorbalmThese are not full-coverage lipsticks, but vibrant tinted balms. The Cherry ColorBalm is one of my must-haves for everyday wear. It’s a beautiful color perfect for work and play.

5. 100% Pure Lip and Cheek Tints

100 percent pure lip and cheek tintsAnother everyday favorite of mine. Don’t let the word “tint” fool you — these are very pigmented! I layer them with balm for subtle color, but applied alone they give a bold color and stain-like effect. The Cranberry color is a super vibrant red while Sugar Plum is a more natural mauvey red.

6. 100% Pure Fruit Cherry Lip & Cheek Stain

More so than the Jane Iredale lip stains, I am able to really define my lip shape with this stain. I apply one coat, let it sit for a few minutes, then wash what remains and either repeat the process for deeper color or apply a balm or sheer color on top for lighter coverage.
