Vegan beauty is booming and is only going to get bigger in 2018. Vegan AND natural beauty products however can be trickier to find as many vegan items use synthetic alternatives. A recent discovery that ticks both boxes is Neek Skin Organics, a new to the UK, Australian lipstick line made with 100% natural, vegan and mostly organic ingredients.
NEEK SKIN ORGANICS VEGAN LIPSTICK REVIEW
The lipsticks are encased in ecofriendly bamboo packaging. I must have been a panda in a former life because I find bamboo anything so pleasing! The lids don’t click shut so you need to be sure that they are on properly to avoid any messy bag mishaps.
Ingredients wise, Neek vegan-friendly lipsticks are made without any synthetic ingredients at all and are free of parabens, lead, sulphate, phthalate, mineral oil and palm oil. What they do contain are plant oils, butters and mineral pigments. The lipstick is made from a base of organic jojoba, castor, avocado oils and shea butter with sweet orange peel oil and Vitamin E.
All those nourishing ingredients means this lipsticks have a very hydrating almost-like balm texture and feel on the lips. I would actually call these tinted lip balms rather than lipsticks as the colours are quite sheer.
NEEK SKIN ORGANICS VEGAN LIPSTICK SWATCHES
As you can see the colours are subtle, translucent and rather pretty, even to a bold lip lover like moi. I know that not everyone wants super pigmented all the time so these Neek vegan lipsticks are great for when you just want an easy to wear, pretty wash of colour, nothing to scare the horses. Speaking of horses, these are not animal tested and cruelty-free. ⠀⠀
