Vegan lipsticks

Sustainability is beautiful (but lipstick doesn’t hurt!)

Ethique’s vegan lipsticks combine vibrant color with nourishing lip care thanks to our combination of mineral pigments and nutrient-rich emollients. These non-drying, cruelty-free lipsticks get their buildable colors from naturally occurring pigments such as ethical mica, manganese violet, and iron oxide. And, just like all Ethique goodies, they are completely palm-free and packaged in our signature home-compostable tubes.

Available in 7 floral inspired shades, our plastic-free lipsticks are vegan and certified cruelty-free. Not only do we not test on animals, but we only use ingredients that haven’t been tested on animals. Our lipsticks use a luxurious blend of plant-based ingredients, like moringa oil and castor oil, both renowned for their nourishing powers.

How to use our vegan lipsticks

Push up less than you think you’ll need. For the most intense, pigmented colour, swipe our vegan lipstick directly on to lips or apply with a lip brush. For a more matte-looking finish, blot lips with a tissue after application. For a soft, diffused look, dab on colour with a fingertip. The options are endless!
