The use of lipsticks has gained considerable importance in recent years and several cosmetic industries have geared up their marketing with different shades of colors to meet the demands of women. Many lipsticks often contain synthetic chemicals that are known to cause serious side effects upon prolonged use. In the present study, we have made an attempt to formulate lipsticks that contained only natural ingredients using extracts of the flowers of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, juice of the roots of Beta vulgaris and mica powder as colourants. Four different formulations (AA-1, AA-2, AA-3 and AA-4) were prepared and evaluated. Among the prepared lipsticks, formulations AA-1 and AA-4 revealed ideal characteristics of lipsticks with properties like shining, spreading and smoothness of lips after application. Further studies through a detailed clinical trial may be suggested to ensure safety of these formulations. Key words: Lipsticks, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, Beta vulgaris, Mica powder, Formulation, Evaluation
