Perfect plum, flattering nudes, rosy pink, vibrant tangerine, beloved classic reds – we’ve picked the best lipsticks to get you the perfect pout this spring. They’re all vegan and cruelty free.

We know finding a good vegan and cruelty-free lipstick can be daunting. Some of you may not even know that your iconic red lipstick or your everyday pink contains teeny-tiny crushed cochineal insect (carmine). Yes you heard that right, scaled insect. And that’s not the only ingredient you should be worried about. From sheep’s grease {lanolin} to beef fat to cow brains to beeswax there are many animal derivatives lurking in your lipstick with an innocuous label to it.

If you’re convinced to go vegan for your next lipstick purchase, we assure you that you won’t have to compromise the intense color, long lasting formula or smooth texture that you get in your regular lipsticks.

Address Chic’s team has tried and tested several vegan lipstick formulas and we bring you the best vegan lipsticks from the lot. Scroll down for the best lipstick shades to stock up for the season ahead. Then tell us in the comments below which color and lipstick you like the most.

Beauty Tip to Prep Your Lips for Summer Brights:
Before you put on your lipstick, make sure you exfoliate and hydrate to ensure a smooth texture. Use a scrub or a soft toothbrush to gently buff away dryness, then apply a hydrating vegan lip balm. Wait five minutes, tissue off, and apply your lip color. Blot for best results. Blur your lips edges by diffusing the outline of lips with a cotton swab.
