Signature: Red Lips

Every good vanity should feature that one fail-poof, goes with anything, makes you feel put together when you barely have time to think lip colour. It’s a signature lip and it’ll stay with you through date night glow, last minute desk to dinner, and those slick low pony days before your next hair wash. Find yours via these sustainably driven lipsticks, glosses and lip and cheek tints.

Lipstick

Enter glam with a timeless red lip. As recommended by our beauty editor, Ilia’s bright block colour lipsticks made from natural (and often vegan) formulas are a go-to for brave pouts. Axiology offers high pigments in combination with a rich creamy texture, also created using natural and vegan ingredients — and that golden package? Of course, it’s recycled. Estelle & Thild are top choice for fans of a velvety finish, formulated with bioactive, organic and natural ingredients. And, if you want your lip to last all night long, the editors point straight toward RMS with its long-lasting natural satin finish.

Lip Gloss

Gloss girls unite! And, according to our beauty editor, prepare to be besties with all four shades of Und Gretel’s 100% natural gloss. We have it on good authority that you wont regret opening up the friendship circle to Etelle & Thild’s certified organic, highly moisturising gloss that also happens to have true nourishing benefits. Plus our personal favourite Kess — offering a vegan formula with moisturising hyaluron and a fresh minty taste.

Lip & Cheek Tint

Lip & Cheek Tint

Of all multi-use products, a lip and cheek tint has to be one of the most rewarding. Think about it: low handbag real estate, high refresh impact. It’s a little pot of look-saving magic. From the desk of our beauty editor: Olio & Esso’s natural formula offers a similarly natural look that can be built on with layering. Ilia’s ‘multi stick’ is a highly approved on-the-go formula — it’s easy to wear and can be applied with finger tips or a densely packed brush when one is available. And then there’s the RMS ‘lip2cheek’, the absolute best seller from the brand, known for enhancing lip and cheek with generously moisturising colour at the tap of a finger. Mwah!
