Vegan Lipgloss Essentials
If you ask me, lipgloss is a makeup essential. Whether I’m headed out to brunch with friends, or ‘glamming’ up for date night, a touch of shiny gloss makes me feel pretty, polished, and put together.
But finding the right lipgloss can be tricky. Despite the seemingly endless varieties to choose from, many glosses are too sticky, too goopy, and worse, made with a long list of bad ingredients. Luckily Tarte Cosmetics, a cruelty-free, vegan-friendly company, has some options that are as beautifully pigmented as they are comfortable to wear (and best of all, they’re formulated without parabens or phthalates, and they’re not tested on animals. Talk about a win, win!)
My favorite within the brand is called LipSurgence Lip Gloss, which comes in nine shiny, shimmery shades of pink, peach, and rose. A nude rose color called Exposed is my go-to for everyday because it’s very natural looking, but on the nights when I want a little more drama, I go for a shimmering red gloss called Natural Beauty. It’s bold and bright, but sheer enough to wear without feeling overdone.
I think Blissful (a warm peach shade) is the most universally flattering of all nine colors and True Love (a juicy watermelon color) is on my wish list for the warmer months ahead.
The brand recently released a new line of stunningly gorgeous matte lip colors called Tarteist Lip Paint featuring thirteen knockout shades that are also certified vegan. Tarte’s vegan-friendly products are labeled with a green V symbol, indicating that they are both cruelty-free and vegan.
With so many pretty, vegan-friendly shades to choose from, we think Tarte’s lip products will defiantly give you something to smile about!
