We spend a lot on lipsticks and then what we get is a chemical-laden product full of lead that we end up applying on our lips. Almost all the lipsticks contain this harmful chemical, which slowly damages our health.
How wonderful it would be to make our own natural lipstick at home, which won't cost anything and will also be safe for both our lips and health, right? You just have to spare some few minutes to prepare them.
Natural home-made lipsticks have another benefit that you can play with the colours in this case. You can make the lipstick colour of your choice, whereas you'd be buying a single or two lipsticks from the market, keeping in mind their heavy cost.
The natural oils added in the lipstick can also keep your lips moist, soft and supple. Home-made lipsticks are chemical free and safe. They make your lips pop out and vibrant. Hence, it is best to learn to make your own lipsticks and stop relying on the chemical commercially available ones.
