A good lip gloss can make your day. A bad one, not so much.
Bad lip glosses and tints are the worst – they dry out your lips instead of protecting them, they feel sticky, and sometimes have you looking like you’ve made out with a bag of Krispy Kremes rather than the luscious lip effect your were going for.
But a GOOD cruelty free lip balm? It’s worth it’s weight in gold.
That’s why we’ve rounded up our faves to share with you today. Viva la bunny!
100% Pure Pigment Lip Glaze
This range of organic lip glazes get their colour from natural fruit pigments – making them rich in natural antioxidants and vitamins. Each lip glaze has a moisturising base of avocado and cocoa butters leaving your lips super soft and nourished. They comes in 7 shades however my favourite pick is Peach Bellini.

The hero product of Zoe Foster’s amazing Go-To Skincare range, Lips! is all about moisture and protection – and it WORKS. It uses medical grade lanolin, nourishing apricot kernel, avocado, almond, evening primrose, vitamin E and jojoba oils, as well as beeswax and soothing calendula and shea butter to ensure your lips are genuinely nourished, protected and conditioned. With a subtle sheen, the clear gloss is your answer to all those vaseline-y lip balms that promised moisture but left your lips dry, parched and greasy. Go-To won’t leave you hanging like that – a few applications and your lips will feel like they’ve won the moisture jackpot.

I couldn’t do summer without this little gem! The beautifully blendable crème stain for cheeks and lips suits all skin types and comes in 8 shades. Kiss-proof and water-resistant, it dries to a perfect, streak-free, non-greasy and non-drying finish. It leaves you with the flush of colour but no sticky residue. A great all-rounder.
