Easy-Tear Lipstick / Eco-friendly cosmetic

Easy-Tear Lipstick

Zero-waste makeup is increasingly concerned since the sustainable fashion industry is widely discussed and supported nowadays.
This Easy-tear Lipstick aims to utilize a detachable base to avoid the paste wasting in traditional tubular lipsticks.

The lipstick tube is mainly made of paper to reduce the use of plastic and achieve tearing.

The most notable characteristic is that the white base consists of four layers.
The first three ones can be ripped from top to bottom as the lipstick becomes shorter, contributing to continuing to use lipstick directly. The lipstick in the fourth and thinnest layer can be used by a lip brush or cotton swab.
