Cruelty Free and Organic: Au Naturale and Ilia Lipstick Review

Lipsticks are my most favorite beauty product ever! I mean with a touch of color you can easily transform your face, and that’s without magic. So I’ve been trying new organic lipstick for a short time. I decided to buy these two cruelty free and organic lipsticks because I absolutely loved the color. Prior to using these organic lipsticks, I was using the Colourpop lippes. But I wanted to switch to organic lipsticks, because the ingredients are better and healthier for the skin. Please keep reading if you want to know what I think about these cruelty free and organic lipsticks.

Au Naturale in Marrakesh- $22

I first heard of this lipstick on Logical Harmony’s YouTube Channel. I bought it from Safe and Chic website. Marrakesh is a warm matte pink (pictured left). It is cruelty free, vegan, 100% natural, and it is made in the United States. I love the morals of this company, and I definitely plan on buying more from this brand. The formula for this lipstick is matte, and it lasts for about four hours on me. I noticed that it did make the lines on my lips visible, and because of that I had to add lip balm on top. This color is super pretty, and I did get a lot of compliments when I wore it.

I bought this cruelty free and organic lipstick online from Safe and Chic too. Ilia is much more moisturizing that the Au Naturale. I liked that my lips felt soft with this, but at the same time I felt that the lipstick moved around a lot and I had to retouch it with my fingers. This color is a soft nude with peachy undertones. Most likely I am going to buy the tinted lip conditioners, because on the website it said that these lipsticks pair well with those. I could go on and on, but I really liked this lipstick and I want to buy more.

Too Many Nudes

Okay when you first opened this post you probably had a dirty thought, but I’m really talking about lipsticks, I just thought I should clear the air. Anyway these are some of the pinky nude lipsticks I always reach for. I am absolutely am obsessed with them, and I thought I would post them because I always get compliments and questions on what lipstick I’m wearing. The problem is that I reach for so many pinky nudes, and I’m really looking forward to expand my lipstick collection. I am in the market for reds, and dark lippies for fall. Any suggestions?
