Natural DIY Lipstick for kissable healthy lips

We recently had a fun and casual H.E.R Show session called High Tea with Renee with our Founder and Managing Director Renee Tan, our guest speakers, Co-Founder of Living Essentially, Fabian Tan, Professional makeup artist & educator, Joyce Yeo and Founder of Coffeezone Sdn Bhd, Caroline Fong sharing their knowledge and tricks on how to create a healthy and natural lipstick of your own, some back to work fuzz-free make up tips and how to make the ever popular Dalgona Coffee.

Key takeaways or areas from Fabian Tan on how to create a healthy and natural lipstick of your own are as follows:


  • Commercial lipsticks contain a lot of heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, chromium, aluminium and many others.
  • 1/3 of our commercial lipstick contains more lead than certain candy products.
  • When ladies put on lipsticks, many of them can take up to at least 10 lipsticks in their life.
  • Among the many problems faced by people includes chapped lips and cold sores on their lips, and thus when one applies a commercial lipstick, it will therefore make the symptoms worse.
  • Only with natural lipsticks and essential oil will it nourish the lips and yourself, regardless with the said symptoms above.

Put in the essential oils, 1 drop for each scent and continue to stir again until everything becomes fully liquid.

(Note: Do this quickly before the liquid from the beaker hardens.)

Pour in the liquid into lipstick mould.
(Note: Place the non-flat side ring on top to close the lipstick case)
