Finding the right lipstick is a bigger task than you might imagine. We don’t think you need to follow all of the rules about which shades work best with your skin tone or hair color. (Rules are meant to be broken!) In fact, we recommend going for the color that works best with your overall style. But you do need to know what kind of formula and finish you want when you walk into your local Sephora, Ulta, drugstore, or department store.
The task is even harder if you like to keep things natural in your skin care and makeup routine. After all, how many all-natural makeup lines can you name off the top of your head? (Probably not that many.) Fortunately, there are more than you might expect. If you want to add a splash of color to your look, without loading up on potentially harmful ingredients, you’re in luck.
They other great thing about natural lipsticks is they’re perfect for winter, since they’re often so much more hydrating than their not-so-natural counterparts. Read on to check out our favorite natural lipsticks. They’ll have you looking and feeling great no matter how dreary the weather this winter.
1. bareMinerals GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lipcolor
If you thought bareMinerals only made mineral foundation, you were wrong. The brand’s GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lipcolor is another great bareMinerals product. The formula manages to be both long-wearing and lightweight. It features a cream-to-matte texture with moisturizing ingredients that counteract dryness. Plus, it offers a subtle vanilla scent. What’s not to love?
