The Best High Performance Natural Lipsticks According To A Makeup Artist

Happy International Lipstick Day!

When it comes to one single beauty product, lipstick can be transformative and not just aesthetically. A study conducted by the Edith Cowan University in Western Australia revealed that in a survey of 300 female participants, an incredible 253 reported that wearing lipstick made them feel “very confident.”

Who else has reached for a bold red lipstick for a special occasion, fun night out or important meeting?!

When curating the lipstick products that make it into my professional makeup kit (and personal makeup bag) I have extremely high standards - my criteria is that all lipsticks must be:

  • Long-wearing

  • Hydrating

  • Formulated with clean botanical ingredients

  • Creamy and effortless to apply

  • Bold colours must be highly pigmented

  • Effortless touchup

  • Ethically made

  • Cruelty-free

  • Doesn’t bleed
