FAQs

Which ingredient makes lipsticks last longer?

If you buy a lipstick from the shop, most of them will contain silicon oil. Silicon oil tends to seal the colour to your lips. However, with DIY lipsticks, the shelf-life is shorter because we’re using natural ingredients. Keep your DIY lipstick not more than 3 weeks with you. You’ll know when the product has gone bad when it smells off, there’s a change in texture, and your skin breaks out because of it.

What is natural lipstick?

A natural lipstick product that’s made from fruits, herbal or plant extracts can be classified as natural.

ADVERTISEMENT

What are some toxic ingredients found in lipsticks?

Lead, chromium, aluminium, cadmium and methylparaben.

Is it safe to DIY lipsticks with a crayon?

Yes, if you use non-toxic crayons. Crayons aren’t meant for the skin and if your skin does itch because of it, you should wash it off your face asap.

Now that you know how to make lipstick at home naturally, the possibilities of making your signature lippie are endless!
