Hi lovelies! It’s been a particularly long week at the office and I’m happy to have a weekend to relax and bring you guys some fresh, new content. I’ve been looking forward to this particular post because I’ve been searching for the perfect lipsticks for a long time now – and I’m excited to share my finds with you!
There’s really nothing that makes you feel super feminine like the right shade of lipstick. It can instantly transform your look, taking you from a day at the office to date night in just a quick swipe. The below four lipsticks are affordable, cruelty-free and long lasting. Not to mention, each brand comes in a range of colors that make it almost impossible not to find the perfect shade for you. Check them out!
Milk Makeup Lip Color in OG Red
In similar fashion to a LBD, every girl is in need of the perfect red lipstick. I’ve mentioned my love for Milk Makeup several times on my blog and this lip color is no exception. It’s bold, highly pigmented and is formulated with shea butter, coconut oil and grapefruit peels to soften and hydrate lips. It’s a little on the pricey side at $22 but trust me, it’s SO worth it. You can find it at your local Sephora or Urban Outfitters or can buy it HERE.
Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Sunset Cruise
You guys, I can’t get over how amazing this lipstick feels! I’ve always been a huge fan of Burt’s Bees lip balms and when they came out with their line of lipsticks I knew I had to try them. They’re 100% natural and are made up of ingredients like beeswax, vitamin E, and raspberry seed oil. Sunset Cruise is my favorite for daily use but there are 13 other fun shades that I’m dying to try. You can pick it up at your local drugstore, Target or you can buy it online HERE.
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Matte Flirty
A dark berry color is essential for Fall and this one is super flattering. It’s not too vampy and it’s very long lasting. Bonus – the rich, berry hue makes your teeth look 10X whiter than they really are (no white strips needed. hehe). If you’re not a fan of matte lipsticks, I would recommend trying the Milani lipstick in “Sangria” for a similar color with a satin finish. Check out all the colors HERE.
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Plumrose
Okay, I am officially obsessed with this color. Obviously I like Milani enough to feature it twice in this list but this particular shade takes the cake. The texture is super creamy and is enriched with vitamins A, E and C to moisturize your lips. It’s subtle but pretty and I love that it looks beautiful on it’s own or with a little shine gloss over it. Don’t take my word for it though – try it HERE.
If you’re looking for new cruelty-free lipsticks to add to your collection I hope you give one of the above a try! Leave a comment if there’s another brand that you love so I can check it out too. After all, you can never have too many lipsticks, right? 😉
