Using lip stick after consuming alcohol

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Someone I know used to drink alcohol and use lipsticks right after having it. Now when she has purified herself if she uses the same lipsticks when she did after consuming alcohol will she become impure and spread impurity? Does she have to throw away all makeup used at that time. If she doesn’t remember whether she used a particular lipstick after consuming alcohol and is doubtful, what should be done as makeup is expensive? Is their any way?


A: If there were traces of alcohol on the stick then obviously it will be impure.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
