It's not easy to find a vegan and organic lipstick. If you do find one it's not always that great. I've decided to share with you my two favourite organic vegan lipstick brands.
Because let's be honest now. Looking gorgeous with a killer lipstick that is completely cruelty free and not hurting the environment, you can't get any cooler than that.
My first lipstick is from LippyGirl.
LippyGirl's lipsticks are made with organic and wild crafted, natural oils and waxes and only natural mineral pigments.
- 100% vegan
- Bee free
- Gluten free
- Chemical free
LippyGirl represents the message "Makeup not madness" which I must agree with. I think testing on animal and using toxins in our makeup is complete madness.
I have the LippyGirl shade "ski bunny" which is a soft nude pink colour. It's a beautiful shade lipstick and perfect when you want natural looking lips. It gives a nice shimmer to your lips. I understand why it's called ski bunny because it would look beautiful when you're in the snow and the white light reflects that gorgeous light pink.
It is a creamy and soft lipstick so be careful when applying so it won't break.
LippyGirl's lipsticks are £12.50 each and I think is a good value for a organic and vegan lipstick.
My other lipstick is from ZAO makeup.
ZAO has developed 100% natural formulas enriched with active organic ingredients to enhance your skin's natural beauty. ZAO is free from all toxic ingredients including parabens, instead using micronised silver as a preservative.
ZAO is using bamboo for the packaging. It gives it a beautiful natural look. Bamboo is known for it's speedy growth so great for sustainability. Most of the packaging is also refillable.
The lipstick I have from ZAO is in the shade "Dark red". It's such a gorgeous red. It's long lasting and it feels like velvet on your lips when you apply. It makes you want to reapply constantly. Lucky the refill lipstick it's a lot cheaper than with the case.
ZAO lipstick for the first time is £15.50 but refill is £9.95 which I think is great affordable makeup.
LippyGirl and Zao proves that chemicals, animal additives and testing are not required and are completely unnecessary to get top quality makeup.
