Having recently replaced all of my synthetic make-up with natural, mineral-based products, it’s become a huge passion of mine to share information about some of the wonderful natural cosmetic brands that I have researched and tried for myself. One of the most important makeup products to be weary of is lipstick, simply because we ingest most of it! And why would women who wear lipstick regularly want to ingest some of the harmful toxic ingredients that are shamelessly added to popular brand-name lipsticks? If you are new to researching the toxicity found in cosmetics, I urge you to read the following article below:
One of the oldest and highest reviewed natural cosmetics brands in America is Gabriel Cosmetics, which also produces the ‘Zuzu Luxe’ line. Zuzu Luxe lipsticks are some of the best lipsticks I have ever tried. They are not drying, are extremely pigmented, last for hours, and – best of all – they are made from 100% natural ingredients. They are also gluten-free and vegan.
I personally own two shades of the Zuzu Luxe lipstick collection. In the photo to the left you can see the color ‘Sin’, which is a rich, sultry, coppery red color with brown and a tiny bit of orange undertones. This lipstick has a nice shimmer to it as well.
As a performer, I rely on lipstick often to bring out my lips under strong lighting. I find that both shades of Zuzu Luxe lipsticks that I own are perfect for the stage. The other shade I own is called ‘Vino d’Amor’ and you can see it in the video link below, where I am performing with the lipstick on. It lasted perfectly for the entire concert without fading!
Check out the company's website (link below), where they offer a ton of lipstick colors to choose from. There is a shade for everyone here!
Zuzu Luxe, along with Silk Naturals, Tarte, Jane Iredale and Vapour Organic Beauty, have become my favorite natural makeup brands thus far. Please be open to leave comments below about natural makeup brands that you love! Let's spread the word about using healthier and safer cosmetic choices on our faces!
