6 vegan, cruelty-free lipsticks to try if you need a color change *and* want to hug the planet
Being obsessed with lipstick and the latest beauty trends doesn’t mean that you can’t also do good for the planet. There actually are a lot of vegan, cruelty-free lipsticks on the market — so many that you may already be using them without even knowing it! Lipstick maven Kat Von D, for instance, is a strong advocate for creating vegan products, and her lipsticks are often among makeup fanatics’ holy-grail products.
Finding out if your products are made by companies committed to being cruelty-free and/or vegan is pretty simple, you just need to take a glance at the brand’s bio and their products’ ingredients. If that sounds like too much work, though, just check out these options for great vegan, cruelty-free lipsticks you can get today! It’s National Lipstick Day, after all.
