7 of the Best: Vegan Lipsticks

Going vegan this year? Make sure your lip colour is part of your new lifestyle, with a helping hand from yours truly! Cruelty-free doesn’t mean compromising on colour, either…

More and more people are opting for a vegan lifestyle, and this time of year is the perfect time to give it a go for yourself. When it comes to lip colour, this means steering clear of products containing lanolin, beeswax or carmine (a crimson pigment obtained by crushing insects) and products tested on animals. Ready to give the best vegan lipsticks a go? Here are seven of my favourites…


Best Vegan Lipsticks

HOURGLASS | Velvet Story Lip Cream 

I love Hourglass and this super lightweight mousse lip colour is super comfortable to wear and gives a really good coverage.

GLOSSIER | Ultralip

This super glossy, hydrating lip colour by Glossier is an everyday favourite and made with only vegan ingredients.

SMASHBOX | Always On Cream To Matte Lipstick 

Long-wearing and transfer resistant, this vegan lipstick gives a full coverage with a true pigment.

TOO FACED | Lip Injection Liquid Lipstick 

Not only does this vegan lip colour give a rich glossy finish, it contains a lip-conditioning blend of rose hip oil and pomegranate flower to give a moisture hit to lips.

E.L.F. COSMETICS | Liquid Matte Lipstick 

All products from E.L.F. are vegan and cruelty-free, plus they are free from phthalates, parabens, nonylphenol ethoxylates, triclosan, triclocarban, and hydroquinone. (The colour is rich and hydrating, too.)

TARTE | Sea Color Splash Lipstick

This vegan lipstick brand offers a selection of gorgeous easy-to-wear nude shades for everyday wear.

AXIOLOGY | Lip Crayon

Also a part of my vegan makeup essentials edit, this lip crayon is a great, high-pigment lip colour free from animal products.
