3 Healthy Lipsticks For Summer

3 Healthy Lipsticks to try for Summer: CRUNCHII, Honest and Nudus | Beauty Bets

Pink lipstick may not be my go-to shade (I’m kind of a red gal), but it just feels right to pull out the pink now that the Solstice has arrived. From delicate pinks that are barely there, to hues so bold we can’t help but stare, there’s a perfect shade for everyone. We took it one step further and kept our picks au natural so you can apply with abandon. Let’s paint our pouts and cheers to summer, shall we?

3 Healthy Lipsticks to try for Summer: CRUNCHII, Honest and Nudus | Beauty Bets

My current favorites are:

Nudus Lipstick in Ruby Rose is a bold raspberry pink, made with luxury oils, ayurvedic pigments and organic ingredients. The finish is creamy without looking flat or shiny. (This product is free from parabens, petro-chemicals, lanolin, hydrogenated oils, fd&c and lake dyes, nano-particles, gmo, pesticides and fungicides. Not tested on animals. Gluten free.)

Honest Beauty Lip Crayon in Peony Kiss is a bright, nearly baby pink without feeling too precious. The unique Demi-Matte formula feels silky smooth on the lips while looking nearly matte. (This product is made without: parabens, paraffins, silicones, talc, petrolatum, mineral oil, or synthetic fragrances.)

Crunchi Date Night Lipgloss is a neutral, my-lips-but-better pink and is a wearable shade for all. The pigmentation is between a typical lipgloss and a liquid lipstick. It also has a beautiful vanilla scent. (this product is thoughtfully produced, consciously packaged, made with certified organic iangredients, vegetarian, gluten free, non-gmo, toxin free,cruelty free, andmade in the USA.)
