It's true—many nontoxic and natural lipsticks tend to be oil-heavy, which doesn't make for a long-lasting pigment. Rather, lip colors from green brands impart a beautiful stain-like pigment that isn't as intense as their conventional counterparts. Regular reapplication is a natural lipstick reality. And that's not a bad thing! It means your lipstick won't stay put wherever it goes, including inside your body (because we do eventually ingest them) and the planet.
Natural makeup artist and herbalist Jessa Blades, who is part of the mbg Collective, has been working with natural formulas for years and has started using a system that helps intensify lip colors, makes them longer-lasting, and takes the glossy sheen away for a matte look.

  • Prime the lips using a lip scrub. We used a sugar and olive oil mixture (yes, it was delicious).
  • Then apply your lipstick, preferably with a brush. It makes the application more precise. Jessa used Burt's Bees satin lipstick in Russet River.
  • Grab a tissue and, if it's double-ply, tear it in half.
  • Using a pressed or loose powder without any color, use a big fluffy brush, dust it off, and dab through the tissue onto the lips. This mattifies the look, allowing for more coats to be applied and to "take" to the lips. In the video, Jessa used Antonym Cosmetics' powder brush (n/1) and Kjaer Weis Translucent Powder.
  • Repeat and apply another coat if you wish.
