Finding 100% vegan cosmetics is a chore, but searching for animal-byproduct-free lipstick is a particular kind of nightmare. That's because beeswax is the key to most lipstick formulas, and even when they are bee-free, the lip colors tend to be insanely boring. But, xoVain has the skinny on a lipstick line with an awesome array of colors — that also happens to be completely vegan.
It's called Lippy Girl, and it hails from Canada. Instead of using beeswax, the line uses carnauba wax, jojoba oil, castor-seed oil, and shea butter in its formulas. Lippy Girl also makes lip glosses, shimmers, and a line of lipsticks that do utilize beeswax — but are still organic, cruelty-free, all-natural, and handmade. The vegan shades come in eight classic colors, and have four special-edition hues.
