If you are pregnant or nursing, you probably are wondering if wearing makeup (especially lipstick) is still considered safe for your baby. If you are like me who want to look pretty (especially with the expected weight gain of pregnancy) without feeling guilty of harming your baby, then this blog post might be able to help you.
While some women prefer to be cosmetics-free throughout the course of their pregnancy, I still chose to wear makeup for the whole nine months I had a bun in the oven. I’m going to be honest and say that I still use my Macs and Colourpops occasionally, but I chose to wear these 3 organic, local brands on a more regular basis. I did my research and found 3 Philippine-made lipstick brands that commit to being safe and free from harmful chemicals.
The 3 lippies I used (and still continue to use) when I was pregnant were:
Snoe Lipstick Rouge Delight in Mocha Madness X15, Kiss and Tell in First Kiss, and Human Nature Perfect Flush Cream Tint in Petal.
These shades work well with my Filipina skin tone. Check them out:
This has a smooth velvety finish.
2. Kiss and Tell in First Kiss:
I like that it’s a liquid matte lipstick. Check out When In Manila by Hershey Neri for a more thorough review of Kiss and Tell in First Kiss!
3. Human Nature Perfect Flush Cream Tint in Petal:
This is a semi-liquid lipstick that doubles as a cheek tint.
