So, let’s talk about lipstick. You probably either love it or hate it. Some people like the bold color look, others don’t. Some don’t mind thicker, heavier stuff on their lips, while others absolutely hate it. Whatever boat you fall into, there is no denying that regular, conventional lipstick is filled with a lot of scary and harsh ingredients. In fact, lipsticks are some of the worst makeup products you can buy when they are not natural and organic.
Conventional lipsticks generally contain heavy metals. Heavy metals that are found in lipstick are chromium, lead, cadmium, manganese, and aluminum. These heavy metals are known to cause cancer, tumors, act as a neurotoxin and hormone disruptor, cause liver damage and frail bones, and can even cause Parkinson’s Disease.
The FDA claims they have set limits on how much heavy metals can be put into cosmetics and then put onto the body safely, but their research is flawed and has not been tested over long periods of time. Therefore, it is hard to actually say what will happen to the human body in the long run with heavy use of heavy metals. In reality, we should never subject our bodies to heavy metals unnecessarily, especially when there are so many healthy and clean lipsticks we can find that never ever contain any toxic heavy metals.
100% Pure never uses any heavy metals in their gorgeous lipsticks so you can feel safe and confident using their lipstick on a daily basis. All of their products are only derived from natural sources and they are never chemically manipulated in a lab in any way.
What also makes their makeup and lipsticks so unique and rich with color is the fact they dye their makeup with wholesome fruit pigment. These colors come from fruits, veggies, teas, and other types of plant pigments. Not only do they product natural and the prettiest of colors, but the colors have benefits to the skin as well.
Because they come from fruit, veggie, and plant sources, the colors are also filled with vitamins, minerals, and healthy antioxidants that will make your skin look and feel healthier than ever before. Conventional makeup is dyed with heavy metals, artificial colors like Red Dye #40, coal tar, lead, and mercury.
100% Pure’s Fruit Pigmented Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick will have you swooning. This lipstick is a blend of highly moisturizing and nourishing cocoa butter, shea butter, and vitamin E. These ingredients also help smooth your lips and help the lipstick go on smoothly as well so you will never get any cracking, creasing, or areas on the lips where the color does not stick well. The matte lipsticks come in 20 different shades of color, ranging from pinks to purples to reds and browns.
This is a mate, full coverage lipstick that works for all skin types. The colors are highly pigmented and are not sheer in color. The color will never look dry or dull on your lips, which is often an issue with other lipsticks. We also love this lipstick was featured in Refinery 29 and Bustle.com.
Some of the healthy ingredients you will find in this fruit colored lipstick are cherries, which are packed with antioxidants to help heal the skin, pomegranates that help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and also help to brighten the skin. Blueberries are nourishing and help protect your skin from natural aging, while grapes also fight signs of aging with a special ingredient called resveratrol. Lastly, cocoa butter moisturizes and softens your skin for healthy, hydrated, and never dried out lips.
Overall, this is one of the best, cleanest, and healthiest lipsticks you will find on the market today. Not only does it contain the best of ingredients, but the high-level performance and rave reviews of this lipstick will surely not disappoint you!
