Ruling on women wearing lipstick

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
is putting on lipstick harram or resembling  the non-Muslim's ( tahsaboh bil kufar ), please I wish to know this answer, because allot of Ulama say's that its harram, because maybe it has pig's fat, but what if I know for sure that it does not have animal fat in it, may I use it? Ofcourse i would not go out with it, i know its haram in that case. But at home, to adore myself. So my question is is it HARRAM to wear LIPSTICK?

Praise be to Allaah.

Using cosmetics such as lipstick and blusher is OK, especially for a married woman.”

Fataawa Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, part 2, p. 828 .

If a woman does not appear wearing that in front of strange men (non-mahrams) and it does not contain any impure substances such as pig extracts, and it is not harmful to the skin, then it is permissible, especially in order to beautify oneself for one’s husband. The basic principle concerning adornments is that they are permissible. And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
