A nude color lipstick contains more essential oils and less pigment. Used oils, which often give a certain smell to the lipstick, are: castor-oil, lanolin, cocoa butter, olive oil or mineral oil, and small, fine particles, are obtained by adding silica dust. The product is obtained from a model that is poured in a special wax, oils, and pigments and it is left in special rooms for getting cold!
