Above: Zuzu Luxe toxin-free and all-natural lipstick in 'Sin'
Having replaced all of my synthetic make-up with natural, mineral-based products, it’s become a huge passion of mine to share information about some of the wonderful natural cosmetic brands that I have researched and tried for myself. One of the most important makeup products to be weary of is lipstick, simply because we ingest most of it! And why would women who wear lipstick regularly want to ingest some of the harmful toxic ingredients that are shamelessly added to popular brand-name lipsticks? If you are new to researching the toxicity found in cosmetics, I urge you to read the article below about the chemical dangers in most popular brand-name lipsticks:
One of the oldest and highest reviewed natural cosmetics brands in America is Gabriel Cosmetics, which also produces the ‘Zuzu Luxe’ line. Zuzu Luxe lipsticks are some of the best lipsticks I have ever tried. They are not drying, are extremely pigmented, last for hours, and – best of all – they are made from 100% natural ingredients. They are also gluten-free and vegan.
I personally own a few shades of the Zuzu Luxe lipstick collection. In the photo above you can see the color ‘Sin’, which is a rich, sultry, coppery red color with brown and a tiny bit of orange undertones. This lipstick has a nice shimmer to it as well.
As a performer, I rely on lipstick often to bring out my lips under strong lighting. I find that the shades of Zuzu Luxe lipsticks that I own are perfect for the stage. Another shade I own is called ‘Vino d’Amor’ and you can see it in this video link, where I am performing with the lipstick on. It lasted perfectly for the entire concert without fading!
Check out the Gabriel Cosmetics company website, where they offer a ton of lipstick colors to choose from. There is a shade for everyone!
