Check the ingredients

Given the varieties, brands, and lipstick shades available in the market, it is so easy to get tempted to pick anything and everything. But here’s your first step to pick the best, make sure you do your research well and pick a lipstick that is cruelty-free and vegan. This is very easy – all you need to do is just look for the ‘cruelty-free’ and ‘vegan’ symbols.

The next step is to look carefully at the ingredients list and make sure you’re picking a product that is paraben-free, enriched with natural ingredients like cocoa butter, shea butter, vegetable, and fruit oils. These ingredients will make your lips very happy while keeping them safe along with giving them rich, deep colors.


Date your lipstick

Now we don’t mean like a candlelight date alright! So, the next time you unbox your lipstick just mark the date of opening and keep track. Make sure you don’t use your lipstick for more than 2 years. Lipsticks, lip stains, or lip & cheek tints don’t come with expiry dates, but they do have a shelf life. You’ll find a tiny symbol on the carton of your lipstick that looks like a tiny container and besides that, you’ll find a numerical value like 2Y or 3Y. This means that from the date you unbox and until the next 2-3 years your lipstick will be in a useable condition without side effects.


Storage

Don’t cram your lipsticks together in a box too small to hold them, try to categorize the everyday shades from occasional wear and organize them so you can find the ones you are looking for easily & quickly! Cartons, plastic storage boxes, or any container that came with packaging will do just fine!

If you live in a place with a cold to mild kind of climate then girl your lipsticks are safe. But in case you live in areas where summers are crazy hot & humid, then here’s what you can do for your lipsticks. Just put them away in the fridge, they’ll remain good as new for as many years as you want to use them.

No matter where you are, keep your favorite lipsticks away from water, extreme heat, or cold & always, always keep them covered.

Sometimes your lipstick might appear a little powdery from the sides and you don’t have to worry about that. This is quite common and happens due to the humidity levels in the atmosphere.


Don’t hurry up

Your lipsticks are your babies and you have got to take care of them with a lot of love. Every time you pick your lipstick like matte lipstick, liquid lipstick, moisture rich lipstick, make sure to use them with care. And by ‘care’ we mean that you have got to open it gently, apply as you wish and the most important part is that you close back the lid on gently. Because come on girls…you wouldn’t want a sad smashed ending for your lippy babies.

So, here’s all you need to do for your lippies, and they're happily ever after with you!
