How many times a day do you have to reapply your lipstick? Where does your lipstick go? It’s probably ingested when you eat, drink or even lick your lips. Conventional lipsticks are filled with some rather undesirable chemicals; that’s why opting for a more natural option is so important!
Boosh natural lipstick is totally killing it in the natural lipstick world.
What is boosh?
Boosh is a Canadian 🇨🇦 natural lipstick company. The company was founded by a lovely girl named Sarah after having trouble finding conventional lipstick products that would work for her due to allergies.
All of their products are free from parabens, phthalates, lead and other heavy metals, synthetic fragrance and artificial colouring.
I was first introduced to Boosh while attending the Holistic Beauty Expo in Toronto. The aesthetic of the branding and the gorgeous packaging really made the company stand out among the crowd. You can tell that Boosh was created to be the best of the best and they do it well!
I began following their company on Instagram and was lucky enough to win one of their giveaways for two lipsticks! What’s better than natural lipstick? Winning a natural lipstick! (or two.)
Ellie $26.00 CAD
Ellie is a medium to light shade of pink with cool undertones from aquamarine minerals. She is a highly pigmented mineral formulation with a cream finish that looks good on most skin tones.

How does the Boosh Natural Lipstick Perform?
These lipsticks are extremely creamy and moisturizing, but don’t fade super quickly either! Usually I find that natural lipsticks will begin to fade and create the dreaded “butthole” lip look. If your lips are not exfoliated properly, they will grab at dead skin (like most lipsticks.)
They do require to be touched up after meals and a few drinks, but for the most part they have very good lasting power (as good as most lipsticks do.) The darker colours do leave a light stain on the lip which actually helps to lengthen the time you need between touch-ups.
Both of these lip colours are medium shades; It would be interesting to see if the staying power was just as good with the darker lipsticks.
Do I recommend the Boosh Natural Lipsticks?
Yes, 100%! The price is comparable to most lipstick products that can be purchased at stores like Sephora – but these are completely natural. You don’t have to feel bad about licking your lips… though I still wouldn’t recommend eating them…
