6 Natural Lipsticks Without Crushed Bugs or Fish Scales

I’m OBSESSED with UK based brand Lush, maker of amazing vegan beauty products. This natural, dusky rose lipstick is perfect for everyday use and looks beautiful on a variety of skin tones. The rose wax and jojoba oil base ensure the lipstick goes on smooth and keeps lips hydrated all day long. (LushUSA, $19)

Tango Vegan Lipstick is a deep, dark, sexy-cool red. Samples are also available for just $1. The lipsticks are handcrafted in small batches and with 100 percent natural, nurturing ingredients. No synthetic dyes or fragrances, no animal by-products, parabens, or other nasties you don’t need or want on your lips all day. Just natural plant-derived waxes and oils, colored with mineral pigments, for a lipstick that goes on smooth and nurtures your lips like a balm. Absolutely cruelty free and absolutely gorgeous. (Just Pure Mineral Shops, $9)

Keep your lips from chapping and give them beautiful color at the same time. These are truly the nicest colors and they look so natural — never metallic or fake looking. Infused with certified, organic herbs for happy, healthy lips. Unrefined, certified organic shea butter is used as the main ingredient for super moisturizing power. Infused with alkanet root for super smooth lips that leave a healthy glow to the lips once the lipstick wears. Formula helps restore and rejuvenate. (Noir Liliana, $8)

This luxurious lip stick is perfect for protecting your lips while leaving them feeling great. The lip stick glides on smooth on your lips with a pop of color that stays using natural minerals, micas and pigments. It also doubles as a blush for your cheeks. Perfect to take on the go! A beautiful blend of amber mocha and plum with a touch of glitter creates this pretty mocha plum color. (Nature’s Purity Bath, $5.50)

Elixery creates cruelty free, vegan lipsticks in shades that tell awsome stories. Like this one: “She was a tomboy—fresh-faced, innocent, and a truly free spirit. She broke hearts without ever realizing it, because she never imagined herself to be so pretty. Nevertheless, her sweetness, her kindness, and her joie de vivre caused a radiance of innocent beauty to shine from every pore. This peachy pink shimmer is the glowing essence of innocence and sweetness, powerful without ever knowing it.” Sold! (Elixery, $18)
