There’s a lot of really nasty chemicals in traditional lipstick like Revlon, L’oreal and Rimmel. In fact, the laundry list is so long it’s painful to read everything that’s within them. That’s why I’ve been on the hunt for a more natural lipstick that can still perform – and today we’re going to talk about Tin Feather Lipsticks!
According to Beauty Myth Busting, women don’t ingest anywhere near 7 pounds of lipstick in their lifetime… but you’re probably looking at closer to 3.7 pounds.
Which is still a heck of a lot of lipstick if you ask me!
Tin Feather Lipstick REVIEW
Pure Anada is a brand that I’ve had the opportunity to try a lot of products from (thanks to Well.ca having relatively good prices!) From their own Pure Anada Lipsticks to Nail Polish!
I purchased these lipsticks at the same time that I picked up the Pure Anada Nail Polish from a local health food store. Pure Anada is a natural cosmetic brand based out of Morden, Manitoba 🇨🇦. Their products are reasonably priced and the packaging is relatively good (considering the lower price!)
So how do the Tin Feather Natural Lipsticks wear?
The two shades I picked up are Vixen and Valerie; the first being a coral shade and the second being a plummish-pink shade.
At first I was skeptical about how these would perform because I didn’t have much luck with the Pure Anada Lipsticks I had originally picked up (and to be honest until I got home and googled it, I had no idea that Tin Feather was part of Pure Anada!) Had I known that Tin Feather was made by Pure Anada I probably wouldn’t have purchased these. Y’know, because past experience would make me think I was wasting my money!
Luckily I’ve been really happy with both the application of these Tin Feather Natural Lipsticks and the wear time! The darker shade, Valerie has an incredible wear time. I put it on before work and I don’t even need to touch it up until after lunch. Not only that, but it’s super moisturizing and I feel like I am applying lip balm every time I use it.
TIN FEATHER: VIXEN
A coral shade that's perfect for summer days.
TIN FEATHER: VALERIE
A plum shade that has a surprising similarity to a Hibiscus flower.
My preferred Tin Feather shade is Valerie, without a doubt!
I did notice that after a couple weeks of not wearing the Vixen shade, the top became a little bit tough. Meaning that it was a bit harder to get the colour to spread over my lips. After a couple uses the weird dryish top layer did subside – and it’s back to a very creamy consistency! I suspect that the more simple ingredient list doesn’t include an ingredient to stop it from drying out over time.
Ingredient Safety Key
Ingredient to use with Caution
What’s in the Tin Feather Natural Lipsticks?
- Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed Oil) is used for moisturizing and conditioning.
- Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Seed Oil) is used for moisturizing and conditioning.
- Butyrospermum Parkii Fruit (Shea Butter) is also used for moisturizing.
- Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam Seed Oil) is used as an emollient to help moisturize the skin.
- Rosa Canina (Rosehip Seed Oil) helps to repair dry, damaged skin. Another moisturizing ingredient.
- Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla Wax) is a natural thickening agent and creates a glossy look in lipsticks.

May contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide CI77891, Black Oxide CI77499, Manganese Violet CI77820, Yellow Oxide CI77492, Red Oxide CI77491, Red 7CI15850, Yellow 5CI19140 (used as colourants.)
Overall, I’m much more impressed with these two lipsticks than I am the original Pure Anada lipsticks I tried. Not only are they super moisturizing, but they have amazing longevity and it doesn’t even look like you’re wearing natural lipstick.
I highly recommend these if you’re on the hunt for a more natural option to traditional drugstore lipsticks – they lack a lot of the nasty ingredients that are commonly hiding within those big-brand products. You don’t have to feel as bad about licking your lips 😉
