    I want to buy vegan lipstick

  2. Cee Jae Terrell says:

    Looking to purchase . How can I do that?

  3. Mary says:

    My daughter has a serious beeswax allergy and some of these listed (including ELF) DO contain beeswax. So anyone wanting truly vegan needs to be more careful than you are suggesting here. Love ELF prodcuts but their lipstick is NOT vegan.

    • Sunny says:

      None of the products I feature on VBR contain beeswax. e.l.f. has a ton of vegan lipstick options. Will you please let me know which specific product you’r referring to? Thanks!

    • Marcela says:

      Thanks a lot for your review!, certainly if they contain beeswax are not vegan,,, Now I know I can’t just trust pages like this….thanks again, read labels people.

    Hi, I know this post is pretty old, but I was looking on your blog to see if you had pictures or descriptions of Emani’s lipsticks. I have been in love with their lipstick ever since the Temptress shade came in the Vegan Cuts beauty box you curated last summer. I went to their website to look for more, but the color chart is pretty bad…they all look the same. And there isn’t a verbal description of the shades. I saw that Vegan Cuts now carries them but their pictures are not really any better. Temptress looks totally different on their website than it does in person! For example, I think I like Sex Pistol because it looks orangey, but is it really? Anyways, I was wondering if you could describe the shades in better detail?

    Do you have an absolute favorite lipstick? Have you tried Everyday Minerals?

  8. Lori says:

    You left out Arbonne! All products are certified vegan and their lip glosses aren’t sticky since they have no mineral oil or any petroleum ingredients in them! Safe and vegan 🙂

  9. StyleDestino says:

    I am a vegan myself and always hunting for good vegan lipsticks. Great post.

  10. Anya says:

    Found this brand on etsy called mia & lillie. Really affordable but good quality. They have a website too!

  11. Brittnee says:

    OMG – I want those Lime Crime lipsticks just for the packaging!

  12. Julie says:

    I love 100% Pure lip glaze. Not all of 100% Pure’s cosmetics are vegan, but the lip glazes are. They have a very pretty bubble gum pink shade called peach bellini that I adore.

  13. Des says:

    Hey I went and checked out elfs website. There is no indication that they are vegan? Are there certain products from then only that are vegan?

  14. celeste w says:

    hello. lime crime lipsticks are not vegan.. they contain bees wax.

  15. Shara says:

    What about lip stains? I love the look of a pink matte lip stain without any gloss or shine. Any suggestions?

  16. Eliana says:

    I’ve been loving Silk Naturals lippies! Some are vegan, natural and very affordable. They have amazing colors.

    Love you blog btw!

  17. Ashley says:

    Have you seen the new Urban Decay lipsticks? They’re all vegan except for two. Great color selection, too. I tried one out in the store yesterday and loved it. Anyway, thanks for the list! They all look like great brands. I want to try out Beauty Without Cruelty first!

    • Sunny says:

      No, I haven’t tried their new lipsticks. I’ve always been a fan of their lippies in the past, though. BWC has some awesome colors and they are super high quality. 🙂

    I love the ELF lipsticks. I love everything from ELF!
