Here at Y&L we always try to share safe and beautiful products with you! Today we wanted to talk about our favorite lipsticks for this summer, which happen to be lead free! You would be shocked at the number of lipsticks that contain significant amounts of lead. Maybelline Color Sensational is the top offender with over 7 ppm of lead! Even Burt’s Bee’s Lip Shimmer made Mother Jone’s Top 20 Worst Offender List! Definitely an article worth taking a look at.

But fret not, you can still rock a colorful pout this summer, sans lead. We’ve picked a few of our favorite brands, some of which are handmade with love and sold on Etsy, and others you can find at your local natural food store or online.

For a great moisturizing lipstick, we love this shade of peachy papaya lipstick from Etherealle on Etsy (only $9.95).

Vegan Mineral Lipstick (Papaya) – $9.95 from Etherealle on Etsy.

What’s to love about this lipstick besides its fantastic color and stellar price? Well it’s:

  • Handmade with natural ingredients
  • Petrolatum & Mineral Oil free
  • Paraben free
  • Cruelty free
  • 100% Vegan – {beeswax, lanolin, & carmine free}

We are also big fans of Jane Iredale products. Her Puremoist LipColour in Carrie is the perfect shade of red! It provides your lips tons of moisture and protection too! You can pick up a tube for $20. While this is a little pricier, keep an eye out for Pharmaca coupons (usually $10 off $50) and you can snag a tube for 20% off online or in stores!
