Powder mauve lipstick - 3ml / 0.10 fl.oz 

Sometimes you need to stop and smell the roses. And sometimes you just need to lather on a petal-perfect pigment like Self Preservation. #SelfCare

The holy grail of lipsticks is real: we know, because we made it. It’s non-sticky, super-pigmented, non-bleed and super-lasting – basically everything you thought couldn’t co-exist in a lipcolour. How did we do it? With a little magic, but mostly with ultra-nourishing oils. Like organic olus oil: chockers with fatty acids that regenerate new skin cells. Camelina oil: nothing to do with camels, everything to do with intense hydration. And olive oil, prickly pear and passionfruit oil, for anti-aging, skin-regenerating thrills.

Please note, the lipstick shade will darken slightly once dry. 

All Kester Black products are cruelty-free, vegan and carbon neutral. We’re also a Certified B Corp!

Made in Italy.

  • Use the edge of the applicator to outline your lips, following their natural curve. Fill-in using the flat side of the applicator and allow to dry. And that’s it, one thin coat is all it takes for a smooth sumptuous pout. To remove, apply our Self Love Oil and watch your lipstick (and worries) gently melt away.

The best lipstick I have ever worn

I’m so happy to have discovered Kester Black! I just bought my first lipstick (Self Preservation) and not only does it glide on like a dream, it also feels moisturising and sets to a very comfortable matte that doesn’t transfer! And it’s better for me/the planet! Honestly, I never thought all of this was possible in a lipstick! I’ve been wearing it for 6 hours so far and haven’t touched up once. This is pretty incredible considering I have been eating and drinking, and also have a 6 month old who is at the stage of grabbing at my face and wiping her fingers all over me! Shipping was incredibly fast too - bonus! If you’re tossing up whether to buy a lipstick or not, I highly recommend it! I’ve already chosen my next two lipstick shades. The Self Preservation shade is exactly as I was expecting - true to the pictures.

I can say without any doubt that I will never wear another brand of lipstick again!

FYI - the full face photo is after I first applied and the close up of my lips is immediately after eating.

Excellent staying power!

This was my first KB lipstick and I fell in love with it so much, I immediately bought another colour to try. Great formulation, excellent staying power, love the applicator too! This colour is very much on the mauve side, which is just a little darker than my natural lip colour. I bought it as I'm 49 and my natural lip colour is fading (plus I have a few freckles on my lips) so the idea was that I use this colour as a base and apply other colours on top. Once the other colours wear off, I'm still left with a great, natural looking base colour. I can have coffee and lunch and this lipstick still stays put - what's not to love?? It's not drying either, which is usually the way the long-lasting lippies go. Thanks KB - love your work!

Exceptional products

I received my new lipsticks from Kester Black recently. They are truly beautiful products.I never buy lipstick without trying them first but I trust Kester Black unconditionally as the quality of the service & delivery is exceptional. You never disappoint & I want to congratulate you and your team for your continual innovation & ethical practice. Thank you Kester Black for making the experience so lovely to order & receive. Even the packaging is gorgeous & I save the tissue paper & box for reusing in the future. Brilliant!
