Our Zao matt lipstick comes in a sustainable and refillable bamboo casing, with it's very own drawstring cotton travel pouch.
Although Zao isn’t completely plastic free, their matt lipsticks are refillable, making a much healthier, sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to purchasing an entirely new fully plastic product.
All of these Matte Lipsticks are talc-free vegan, organic and cruelty free with limited, if any plastic packaging.
As with all Zao products, this is free from talc and parabens (synthetic preservatives), instead Zao use micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative. Zao does not use nanoparticles in their products, with the micronised silver being larger than nanoparticle size, making Zao products safe and free from man made toxic chemical preservatives.
****Due to hygiene reasons we are unable to refund this product once purchased****
The bamboo Lipstick case is refillable.
The refills do come in plastic that is easily and fully recyclable but Zao are working towards replacing this plastic packaging with card/paper in the future.
How To Use
This gorgeous matt lipstick meets the needs of those who want both a colourful smile and lip care. Apply on top of a balm or directly on your lips.
To draw your mouth perfectly, start in the centre and move towards the outside, but spare the outer corner. Use a lip brush for more precision, draw the outline first and end with the heart of the lips.
To add a shine apply a touch of gloss on the centre of the lips.
Regular reapplication helps lips to regenerate and restore their fullness.
If you want to achieve a sophisticated and long-wearing makeup for your lips all day and night, follow these three steps:
- Use a brush and first apply the lipstick to the outline of your lips by making a thin line that accentuates the fullness of your lips and illuminates it.
- Then apply the balm.
- Finally, finish with your lipstick using a brush for perfection.
How To Refill
Please see the image for a break down on how to refill.
Hold both the bottom of the bamboo casing with one hand and and the top refillable part in the other. Gently turn and pull out the empty refill. Then replace with a new refill by slotting into the bamboo casing and turning.
Genuinely economical, the refills reduce costs and packaging, while also allowing you to free your creativity and play with our wide range of colours.
The bamboo products also come in a classy pouch, making them even more sustainable and durable – so they can hold one refill after another after another.
