Best Vegan Lipgloss

Hey everyone,

As a long term user/lover of mineral makeup, I have tried pretty much every brand on the market. There are so many vegan friendly mineral makeup brands - but which ones perform? When you're looking for the perfect pout and especially if you're shopping online, how do you know whether the lipgloss is too sticky/too grainy/comes off easily etc.

There are a few things to keep in mind when selecting your perfect lipgloss:

  1. Budget: Mineral products can differ drastically in price, depending on the ingredients and brand. So, this will certainly impact which brands you will consider.
  2. Preferred Application: Do you prefer a pot, a stick or a brush? If you don't love the applicator and it ends up being at the bottom of your bag, its not worth buying.
  3. Know What Colours Suit Your Complexion: When you're choosing a lipgloss, think about your complexion. For example, if you have olive skin, avoid yellow based hues. 
  4. Is It For Everyday Wear: If this is a lipgloss for everyday wear, you are more likely to not want super glittery or crazy shimmer.
  5. Are You Happy to Re-Apply: Remember that a true mineral product does not last for ages, you do need to reapply every so often. So, if you want a lipgloss that stays on all day - you will need to look at chemical based options rather than mineral.

Here is my top three list of the best vegan and mineral lipgloss
