Can I wear lipstick/lip gloss while fasting?

Please tell me its ok, I've been wearing it all these years while fasting, people have been telling me your not supposed to, but I kept wearing it thinking it would be ok as lon as it doesn't enter my mouth? :-[

I did try to stop using it when I first heard, but a few days later I started again because I couldn't stand people staring at me or asking questions about why I look so pale and ill.

Now one of the girls at work tells me none of my fasts, this month or the previous years, would have been accepted. But, it's the intention that counts right?

I only put it on because I feel so consious about my very thin lips and I look so ugly without it. Seriously, i'll be so depressed if I can't wear it. :(

Does wearing lipstick when fasting break the fast?

What is the ruling on wearing lipstick during the day in Ramadaan? Does it break the fast? Please note that some lipsticks have a slight taste and some have no taste; some types of lipstick may be dry and some may be moist.


Praise be to Allaah.

All kinds of preparations that are put on the outside of the body, whether they are absorbed through the skin or not, and whether they are for treatment, moisturizing, beautification or any other purpose, do not break the fast unless they are swallowed by the fasting person.

The mere fact that it has a taste does not affect the fast so long as one does not swallow anything.

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (15/260):

What is the ruling on women using kohl and some cosmetics during the day in Ramadaan? Do these things break the fast or not?

He replied:

Kohl does not break the fast of men or women according to the more correct of the two scholarly opinions, but it is better to use it at night if one is fasting.

The same applies to soaps, creams etc that are used to beautify the face and are applied to the surface of the skin, including henna, makeup and the like. There is nothing wrong with using them for one who is fasting, but makeup should not be used if it will cause harm to the face. And Allaah is the source of strength. End quote.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about the ruling on a fasting person using ointment to treat dryness of the lips.

He replied:

There is nothing wrong with a person using ointment to moisturise the lips or nose, or moistening them with water, or with a cloth and the like, but he should avoid anything that could reach the throat. But if anything reaches the throat without him intending it to, there is no sin on him, just as if he rinses his mouth and some water reaches his throat by accident, his fast is not invalidated by that. End quote.

Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (19/224).

Shaykh Ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him) said in Fataawa ‘Ulama’ Balad al-Haraam (201):

There is nothing wrong with applying creams to the body when fasting if there is a need for that, because the cream only reaches the surface of the skin and does not enter the body. Even if it is absorbed by the pores it is not regarded as breaking the fast. End quote.

And Allaah knows best.

^ Sister you can get colourless lip gloss and very bland lipstick that hardly has any colour. So that should be fine.

True, but based on the sisters quote below, I'm assuming the lipstick she wears is highly visible.

Which is what I was thinking, it may also depend on ones intention of wearing it... i.e.

It is forbidden for them to display these things in front of non-mahram men, according to all the fuqaha’, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “… and not to show off their adornment…” [al-Noor 24:31], and because there is no need to do so. (Hijaab al-Muslimah bayna Intihaal wa Ta’weel al-Jaahileen, p. 239).

The use of lipstick and any kind of make-up should be avoided during Ramadhan. It provokes Fitnah among brothers. So whatever attracts the men's attention should be prohibited.

This should be meant during ur whole life until you start covering up your beauty behind the veil. Usually women wears makeup to look good, and who do they want to look good for? Not for the other women for sure. And thats pure fitnah.

Who cares if your lips looks thin and has your face looking pale and if you feel ugly without it. Im sure the other sisters wont mind you looking this way knowing that you are fasting, they probably dont even notice the difference.
