Beeswax and Carnauba waxes’ mixture can potentially increase the quality of anthocyanin natural dye lipstick. This study aimed to obtain formulas of different beeswax and carnauba wax mixtures’ contain. Jati leaves was extracted using maseration method. Lipsticks made from Jati leaves extract were added with variations of beeswax and carnauba waxs’ concentration. Each lipstick formula was evaluated for its physical quality, such as homogeneity, melting point, smearing agent, shape, color, and odor stability test, and pH during 4 weeks storage at room temperature, and hedonic and irritation test in rabbit. Jati leaves extract contains anthocyanin proven by qualitative test result using KLT with Rf value 0,1143 and stable at pH 3. Homogenous, orange, and stable lipsticks with melting point at 73-77oC, soft, easy to apply and does not cause irritation against rabbit test animals were obtained. Lipstick’s mixture was increasing along with the increasing of beeswax concentrations.
