Natural lipstick is one of those conscious beauty staples that can really make or break a look. Anything going on your lips should be safe and toxin-free, but that shouldn’t mean compromising on colour.

Luckily here at Belle & Sage we’ve got you covered! From daring reds to mesmerising purples and every shade in between - these are the lipstick superstars to stock up on this summer.


BITE Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Radish

 BITE Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Radish

Looking for hot pink tones to keep you cool for summer? BITE Beauty’s Radish is the one for you. It’s bold and bright without looking garish and it glides on like an absolute dream too.

Just like BITE’s entire Luminous Creme Lipstick range, it’s made from an intricate cocktail of fruit extracts, essential oils and anti-ageing Red Wine Resveratrol. It means that as well as looking perky, this particular lipstick actually conditions and enriches your lips as you wear it.

Pair it with: A sunny day in the city and bold winged eyeliner.


Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Nile Nude

Eye of Horus Nile Nude

Nude lips are the perfect addition to any bronzed summer look. Burt’s Bees’ Nile Nude is our go-to neutral when it comes to subtlety, moisturising your lips with Moringa and Raspberry Seed Oil all day.

In fact, because Burt’s Bees Lipstick helps with lip hydration and lasts for up to 8 hours, it’s perfect for long days out in the sun. Pop a stick in your handbag next time you head off to the beach for a natural and long lasting nude lip.

Pair it with: A picturesque beach trip and your favourite natural bronzer


Eye of Horus Bio Lipstick in Cleo Plum

Eye of Horus Lipstick Cleo

If there’s one natural lipstick shade that embodies ‘sophistication’, it’s Eye of Horus’ Cleo Plum. This is a gorgeous blend of dark red and rich purple combined to create a colour that’s totally unique and absolutely delicious.

It’s the kind of colour that works with any skin tone - complementing dark, bronzed complexions and striking on fair skin too. All of Eye of Horus’ Bio Lipsticks are named after Egyptian queens and goddesses and it’s easy to see why Cleopatra is this plum’s namesake - it’s a shade fit for a queen!

Pair it with:An elegant dress and a decadent evening out.


BITE Beauty Matte Creme Crayon in Rosehip

BITE Beauty Matte Creme Crayon Rosehip

Sometimes a woman just needs a classic red lippy to dress up a simple look and once again, BITE Beauty is right here to deliver the goods! The Rosehip Matte Creme Crayon is fantastic for whenever you’re after a pure, pigmented pop of red.

The beauty of a shade like this is that it’s striking no matter what you’re wearing or where you’re going. If you’re all about colour Rosehip will add even more energy, and if you’re looking moody in monochrome a red lip might just be the pop of drama you need.

Pair it with:Virtually anything whenever you’re after some red hot confidence


Inika Certified Vegan Lipstick in Honeysuckle

Inika Certified Organic Lipstick Honeysuckle

Life’s too short to not wear a great, girly pink every so often. Inika’s Honeysuckle is a sweet, feminine-looking crowd favourite that adds a bit of flirty fun to virtually any outfit. 

All of Inika’s Certified Vegan Lipstick is totally free from synthetic dyes too, using only plant extracts and natural ingredients to create dreamy colours like this one. Honeysuckle itself has a subtle sheen to it too - meaning you’re getting gorgeous colour and supernatural shimmer all in one stick.

Pair it with:Glowing, dewy foundation and an early morning adventure.
