Salams I recently purchased some lipstick from Urban Decay it is free from animal products however it contains anise alcohol. Would this be permissable to use? Also if lipstick contains any other alcohol would it be permissable? Jk for your time

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq

Respected brother/sister

Cosmetic alcohols:As a rule, alcohols (as long as they are not sourced from

dates or grapes) for external use in the form of medicines or beauty

products are permissible. If they are for internal use then the ruling

applied is: impermissible unless there is no suitable alternative.

So, in that case, the alcohol would not be problematic in the said products.

And Allah knows best
