For the last few years, I’ve been obsessed with natural/organic hair products, but becoming extremely ill earlier last year pushed me to go one step further and begin integrating natural/organic skincare products and cosmetics into my routine as well. While I do realize that it is very hard to have completely natural/organic products these days, my goal is to reduce the amount of harmful chemicals I put on my body.
To start my natural beauty journey, I began by looking for replacements for my favorite lipsticks – MAC’s Ruby Woo and Rebel, which I often wear together. After some research I discovered that SheaMoisture, one of my favorite beauty brands, recently launched their Shea Butter Luscious Lipstick collection, which is absolutely amazing! The colors I’ve tried are very pigmented, easy to apply, have decent staying power and do not dry out my lips. To top it off, these lipstick are affordable ($9.99 a tube). Below, I’ve shared how two of their shades – Poppy and Wild Orchid – look on my brown skin.
