August has arrived and we’re half-way into summer! The weather’s getting hotter, and that means that lighter and brighter lipstick colours have hit the shelves. Obviously you want to always look your best, and August is the perfect month for expressing your funky side with beautiful and radiant shades of lipstick.
Whether you want a bold colour or something that will make your lips pop, there is always a vegan alternative to your favourite lipstick colours.
Here are 10 vegan lipsticks that will brighten up your August look:
Looking for a bold, metallic look that isn’t the same red, silver or light gold? Check out Lime Crime‘s metallic velvetines that come in several shades, including funky ones like siren (coral-pink), seashell bra (light purple), mermaid’s grotto (light blue) and zemon (yellow).
All of Lime Crime’s products are PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free and are the perfect products for everlasting fun!
While Urban Decay is not a vegan company, they offer many vegan makeup products, one of their most popular ones being their Vice Lipstick. With 100 shades, you can find any colour you’re looking for from dark shades to radiant colours. For the summer season, we would recommend Snitch, Big Bang and Menace.
Who needs lipstick when they can use liquid lipstick? The best place to go to is Kat Von D Beauty, as Kat has been reformulating her entire beauty brand to go vegan. They have tons of fun colours, but the best shades for summer are: Beloved – Soft Coral; Armageddon – Carnation Pink; A-Go-Go – Bright Orange-Red; and Dreamer – Neon Turquoise.
Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are also life-proof, everlasting wear, making them ideal for everyone who lives a busy lifestyle and needs to go the entire day without redoing their lipstick.
Have a thing for lip tar? Vegan company Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics offers just about any glittery shade you desire. From neon colours to metallic ones, you wouldn’t want to miss out on what OCC has to offer.
