Non Toxic Lipsticks I’m Loving

Clean beauty is most definitely a hot topic and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. I did this big post on what it all means and broke down the myths, the noise and more! And I have to say, I’m still unsure about how I feel about it all. There’s lots of chatter about it and either way I can confidently say, I want more non-toxic ingredients in my life. Period. Regardless of it possibly being a fad or not, I think we can all agree that we want less toxins in our life.

I wear lipstick almost every single day. It’s one of my favorite things to put on to complete my look. When I started to learn about the ingredients that are in our lipstick like lead or formeldahyde I wanted to find non-toxic ones. Plus, the fact that we are digesting our lipstick (I mean it is ON our lips) I wanted to try to make a change.

Finding non-toxic lipsticks was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. But finding ones that are pigmented and look great was a touch harder! Here are a few brands I discovered and love.

The Best Non Toxic Lipstick Brands To Try

Beautycounter Intense Lipstick

The first non-toxic lipstick I ever tried was actually YEARS ago. I’ve been wearing Beautycounter lipsticks for a long long time. It wasn’t until last year that I grabbed this lipstick in Girls’ Night, an amazing red! Now I’m hooked and it’s one of my all time favorite red lips to grab in my makeup bag. If you’re looking for a super pigmented non-toxic lipstick, this is it!

Axiology Beauty Lipsticks

I recently tried out the Axiology lipsticks and just loved them. For one, the gold tube is so beautiful! But I also love how these wear. I have the balm lipsticks which are a bit more sheer but still pretty pigmented. They also have more creamy pigmented options as well!

$28-$30 Axiology Lipsticks

RMS Beauty

RMS’ philosophy on makeup is using raw, whole ingredients. Many natural ingredients can still be processed down so much that they barely resemble their original makeup. RMS has a full color range in their Wild With Desire lipsticks so you can find a shade you love.

Ilia Lipstick

I chatted about Leaping Bunny Certified in this post and not a lot of brands fall under this regimented screening, but Ilia does! These products and ingredients are never tested on animals and they’re also vegan!

      I really love Axiology, all of their lipsticks have less than 10 ingredients!

      I think makeup is a fun way to start. It’s not as committal as say skincare. Plus you can’t go wrong with lipstick!

  4. Thanks for the recommendations Jessica!

    I totally agree with your point about the importance of avoiding toxic lipstick ingredients… given that we ingest it!

    I keep hearing great things about Beauty Counter, so I had a look at the ingredients in the Colour Intense lipsticks. I have to say I’m impressed – no carmine, lanolin oil, or beeswax! Great for vegans.

    I’m defo adding it to my basket – I think I’ll be brave and go for the bright First Date shade!

    For any readers looking to go natural (or vegan), we recently posted a piece exposing some lipstick ingredients to avoid. Plus, we discuss future lipstick innovations that will be particularly appealing for green beauty fans!

    Thanks again for all of the recommendations – can’t wait to get my hands on the Beauty Counter lipstick,
