I have been in love with lipstick for quite some time. I like having color on my lips. It’s not only fun trying out the huge variety of colors, but it can add dimension to an otherwise plain look. I’ve tried so many different brands and colors of lip sticks that I’ve lost count. My friends have seen the collection I carry in my purse and laugh at the amount of tubes. What can I say? A girl can never have too many lip colors!
I’m trying to be more selective, however, on the brands that i’m using and purchasing. I know that a lot of the lipsticks I collected over the years are not from cruelty-free brands. Now that my passions and beliefs have shifted to leading a more plant-based and cruelty-free driven lifestyle, I need to research and find make up brands that follow a cruelty free production.
I discovered that one of the lipsticks in my bag is in fact cruelty-free and it’s one of my favorite ones. My Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick.
Over the last year, i’ve really been into the matte style lipsticks and that’s just what this is. And even better, Stila is cruelty-free. No animal testing occurs anywhere. They have also withdrawn selling in markets that require animal testing like China. China requires animal testing by law on international products.
Not only is this brand not harming the animals, this awesome matte lipstick has over two dozen shades to choose from! The shade I have in my bag is Beso, a lovely red. I am a sucker for red lipstick and have trouble find a shade I like. But this one is a winner!
Some of the awesome qualities of this product are: It’s a creamy-matte, bold and long lasting color, a light texture and comfortable on your lips-it doesn’t feel crumbly and lips don’t feel or get dry, it doesn’t bleed or transfer over and it’s enriched with vitamin E and avocado oil.
This lipstick is a bit more money than a drug-store find, but it lasts a super long time and you are saving the animals in the process. This makes it all worth it to me. So give this lipstick a try and have fun experimenting with all of the fun colors! And you can kiss your pets and animals without this lipstick rubbing off onto them 🙂
