Lead and Other Nasty Stuff in Lipstick

Lead is the most “popular” heavy metal found in many lipsticks. It came into the spotlight when the FDA exposed 400 lipstick brands containing lead. Yeah ... FOUR HUNDRED! If you're ingesting lead regularly, it could be messing with your nervous system and throwing your hormones out of whack. Just for starters.

Other heavy metals found in lipstick are cadmium and antimony. And then there’s parabens, petrochemicals and, hey . . . let’s talk about formaldehyde. Yeah, that's the stuff used to embalm dead people . . . people who just might have gotten cancer from their formaldehyde spiked lipstick!  

Find a Safe & Natural Lipstick

But wanting and finding a super awesome lead-free, non-toxic lipstick can be two very different things. Lucky for you, Blissful Miss is here to provide a safe and natural lipstick that will . . . rock your world!

26 Shades of Lead-Free, Non-Toxic Lipstick

  • Matte

It’s all here, with reviewer color tips and even some awesome color swatches to help you choose just the right shade.


Blissful Miss Makes It Easy

Blissful Miss has done the research for you. You don't have to read labels or wonder if the lipstick you're forking out your hard earned money is any good. Blissful Miss makes it easy to find a safe lipstick that will rock your world! 

Here's how.


How This Safe Lipstick List Was Created

ONE

EWG BODY LOTION

EWG

The Environmental Working Group rates products according to their toxicity to the human body. Each Blissful Miss guide begins with products rated safe by EWG. Products are rated 1 through 10, with 1 being the safest.

TWO

natural body lotion reviews

Amazon

Products are cross-referenced with human reviewers on Amazon, who have tried them, love them and rated them with a super awesome 4 stars or higher. 

THREE

FAKESPOT TRUST

Fakespot

New for Blissful Miss in 2017, products are checked on Fakespot as well, to ensure that only products with real and honest (not paid for) reviews are recommended here. A Fakespot Grade of "A" is the most trustworthy.


Different From other Blissful Miss Guides

If you’re a regular on Blissful Miss, you’ll find the Lipstick Guide more limited in the number of brands recommended than other guides. This is because very few brands currently meet the Blissful Miss criteria, as outlined above. I almost didn’t make a Natural Lipstick Guide because of this, but decided to go ahead and share the few that made the grade. There are other EWG safe lipstick brands on Amazon, but with limited reviews, if any. Over time, more reviewers will rate what I’m sure are some great nontoxic lipsticks, and they'll be added to this list.

26 Shades For Your Viewing Pleasure

Luckily, between the 3 brands listed here, there are 26 beautiful shades to choose from, with photos and color tips for all of them. 

A Word About Color

  • How a color looks in a tube and how it appears on your screen is likely very different from how it will look on your lips.
  • Read the Reviewer Color Tips for help in choosing the right shade for you. 

Beware Of Which Shade You Buy

Just because some shades in a lipstick line are rated safe by EWG, that does not mean all shades in that line are safe. This is part of the reason this guide was difficult to create. The last brand has only two shades recommended here. 

And With No Further Ado . . .

Quality Lipstick For A Crazy Amazing Price

According to reviewers, it has a “buttery consistency” and goes on "silky smooth”. Many ... not all, but many ... are surprised at how non-drying the matte formulation of this lipstick. 

TIP: It's always a good idea to exfoliate and use a primer for best results.

Lipstick Queen Butterfly Ball


Sheer & Shimmery Moisture

"The butterfly wing has to be one of the most beautiful effects in the world and although I would never lay claim on what Mother Nature does, I created Butterfly Ball in her honor." 
~ Poppy King, Lipstick Queen Founder

The Butterfly Ball lipstick collection provides beautiful shades of sheer color, which can be layered for deeper pigmentation. Hints of iridescent blue make your teeth appear whiter and bring out the whites in your eyes, both of which give a more youthful appearance (if you’re into that sort of thing, anyway! You know . . . looking young!)

These lipsticks feel oh so comfy on the lips! They are moist and hydrating with somewhat of a lip balm like texture. No need to prime! This is a great every day lipstick that is easy to apply, won’t bleed or settle into fine lines.

Reviewers Agree

These are not only manufacturer claims, but reviewers attest to this stuff. One reviewer said lipsticks that claim to be moist are never moist for her, but this one is. Another reviewer's sensitive lips don't have a reaction to the pigments in Butterfly Ball like every other lipstick she's tried.

Watch the video

Lipstick Queen founder, Poppy King, describes Butterfly Ball and shows us several shades in iridescent, shimmery action!
