Today’s post is about vegan lipsticks worth trying. Pretty sure next year I am losing my Sephora VIB Rouge status, perhaps a downgrade to the say the least because there are more and more enticing brands I am beginning to discover outside this black-and-white retail mecca. Unless they bring in more vegan brands (same way they introduced K-beauty to address the growing demographics) and get creative with their rewards or points system then maybe I’d stay. Speaking of vegan products, I am excited to share with you these lip gems I have been enjoying lately.

Au Naturale Su/Stain Lip Stain is my favorite vegan liquid lipstick to-date. While it is named as lip stain, it does not stain lips. It dries matte and applies better than Anastasia or Smashbox liquid lipsticks. It has quite a citrus-ish fragrance that dissipates after few minutes. It has superb color payoff as you can see from the swatch above. And while it has limited wear time (touch-ups required after a meal), its non-drying formula is enough to convince me to stock up few more shades! I own Terracotta, a brick-red shade that’s bold and daring.
From the website: “Formulated without animal bi-products, synthetic preservatives, nano particles, gluten, parabens, fillers, dyes or toxins, our su/Stain matte lip stain is 100% natural, cruelty-free, vegan and made in the USA”

Inika Certified Organic Lip Glaze is a nourishing lip gloss that renders subtle shine. I have the shade watermelon, a peachy-pink which is great for everyday wear. You can wear it as is or layer with lipstick as you please.

Elde Lip and Cheek Rush can be worn either on the lips or cheeks. I choose the former though because I am a lipstick junkie plus I don’t like cross-contamination. I own Midnight Pink, a soft nude pink shade that’s universally flattering.
