Not all products are created equal and not all makeup products are made in the USA either. Just because one product from a line is made in America doesn’t mean that the entire line of products is made there. So the rule of thumb is even if you have heard that the beauty line is “made in the USA” make sure to check the label to ensure that you are buying locally. Since this can be a daunting task we’ve scoured the makeup shelves and have come up with a quick list of top lip products made in the USA, from lip gloss
to lipstick and more.
Even if you’re not a huge fan of lipstick Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick may make you a believer. The lightweight feel is wonderful, and there is absolutely no bad “taste” unlike other lipsticks. This lipstick is also very moisturizing so your lips won’t dry out during the day. The double bonus is that it’s made in the USA, and you can chose from 82 shades! That means that you can have a different shade of lipstick for almost 3-months straight!
CG offers a very affordable and accessible lip balm/gloss stick that is equally as good as the high-end lines
, such as Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Gloss Stick. It has a lightweight formula that gives just the right amount of color and shine, coupled with an added SPF15. Sure it doesn't have the lip-plumping technology, but the use of natural ingredients such as mango and shea butter easily make up for that. The duo bonus it that it’s made in the USA so you can support your country, and it’s priced under $10.
Everyone who loves Clinique Bonus Time is fully aware of their Different Lipstick line. But if you’re not familiar with this lipstick then just know that it goes on super-smooth, is extremely light and comfortable on your lips, and gives a good amount of moisture. The bonus is that Cllinique’s Different Lipstick is made in the USA so you can try each of the 20 shades with pride.
When you can get a lip color stick and a lip plumper
in one natural product then you should jump on it. It’s truly hard to find such a combination, and when you add in the fact that it’s made in the USA then it’s a definite must-have. The unique side of the Just Kissed Lip Plumper is that it also contains time-released peptides which increase moisture while stimulating collagen while wearing it. The names are also fun, and one of my favorites is Milan.
Kaplan MD Lip 20 gives you a luxurious feeling lipstick with an added lip plumper, and a dose of SPF20 for protection. How much more could you ask for except that it’s also made in the USA. Available at department stores in eight fabulous shades, if the color and plumping doesn’t reel you in then the ultra-cool case will. As a bonus the other Kaplan MD 20 lip products are also made in the USA, including their Lip 20 Gloss and Lip 20 Balm
This salve is diverse, highly moisturizing, and made right here in the good old USA. It can be easily used on lips, eyes, cheeks, dry skin on fingers and elbows, for unruly brows, for flyway’s and more. I’ve even heard that some people use it for diaper rash. This little amazing tin of iconic goodness is also very affordable at under $7, and can be found in just about any store. The bonus is that it’s not a newbie for being an American made product; instead it’s been made in the USA since 1895.
If you love the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter
line then you will equally love their Lip Butter. Available in many flavors, my favorite is Dark Chocolate & Peppermint. The highly moisturizing formula feels wonderful on your lips, leaving them comfortable instead of sticky or tacky. The bonus is that it’s made in the USA, and comes in a yummy selection of flavors and consistencies. It’s one of my must-have lip glosses for the times when I want a “treat” without any color.
Tinte’s lip shine is a fabulous combination of colored lip gloss
with a true-to-life flavor. Think back to childhood when you used to love wearing flavored lip balm and glosses. Now snap back to reality and smile because Tinte has the grown-up version for your more mature lips. It’s available in 10 fun and yummy shades, offering you flavors such as Cake and Double Bubble. The kicker is that they are made right here in the USA, so you can also feel patriotic while wearing them.

Made from a local company in Ohio, Mikamy Meadows is chocked full of natural ingredients and sans of parabens or other nasty ingredients. They are slowly expanding their products, and currently you can get two shades or a sheer gloss. The double bonus is that they are made in Ohio (so made in the USA), and each one is only $8.
Packed with pigment and moisture, MAC’s CremeSheen Glass Lip Gloss is definitely a high-shine lip product. If the thought of using MAC lip gloss isn’t enough then chew on the fact that this trendy and non-sticky gloss is available in 19 hot shades. The kicker is that it’s also made in the USA, so you can show your support of the country while rockin’
a smokin’ hot pout.
