A couple of vegan and clean skincare goodies I got from my first order from @thedetoxmarketcanada! 🌿✨ My skin has changed so much in just the past year alone. I went from very oily skin to acne-prone to eczema flare-ups and now surface dryness πŸ˜” So lately, I've been looking into the ingredients of all my skincare products and consciously trying to make an effort to buy clean, non-toxic, and organic products.  This is my second bottle of @oseamalibu's Blemish Balm, it's an amazing lightweight moisturizer that has really helped clear up my skin without drying it out or trigger my eczema. 🌸 I also wanted to try their Atmosphere Protection Cream which claims to hydrate and help provide barrier protection against visible damage caused by environmental stressors such as dry climates, wind and air pollution. 🌍 I’d love to know, what are some non-toxic & vegan skincare products/brands are you currently loving or would recommend?? πŸ’•

My lips are instantly and intensely hydrated thanks to @nclabeauty’s [NEW] 100% Natural & Vegan Lip Balm! πŸ’‹ They have 8 flavors to choose from including Red Velvet, Almond Cookies, Marshmallow, and Watermelon!! πŸ‰ πŸ‰ πŸ‰  This watermelon Balm Babe smells and tastes like watermelon candy! Formulated with shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter, and coconut oil.
I love how light and moisturized this lip balm feels and I especially love how it doesn't leave that waxy feeling behind πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Most lip balms on the market contain beeswax, lanolin, or honey, making them NOT vegan. And then there are some other brands that are NOT cruelty-free including Nivea, Chapstick, EOS*, Blistex, Aquaphor, and Vaseline.
*Note: EOS is sold in-stores in China but they claim that since they manufacture their products in China, they do not need to test on animals as required by law. However, EOS' products are still at risk of POST-market animal testing where Chinese officials will pull products off from store shelves and test them on animals, this is often done without the company's knowledge or consent. So at this time, we do not feel comfortable classifying any beauty brand selling their products in-stores in China to be "cruelty-free" to our standards.

{NEW} Cruelty-Free & Vegan NCLA Lipsticks Are Here!!

This post may contain affiliate links.

OMG. They’re finally here!! NCLA just launched their first cruelty-free and vegan makeup product!! They released six shades of their vegan lipsticks and I got my hands on three colors: Silverlake Serenade, Calabasas Queen, and Beverly Hills Bad Girl.

I’ve been using NCLA vegan nail polish for a minute now (for all my Canadian babes, I get my NCLA fix at NailPolishCanada.com ??). So when I heard they were coming out with a collection of vegan makeup products, I nearly lost it!

“Say hello to our brand new, totally gorgeous, totally LA, semi-matte lip collection! 6 of the most popular wearable shades in the cutest NCLA pink packaging. You’re going to need them all.” – NCLA

It’s awesome to see a small LA-based indie brand like NCLA branch out and expand their product line, while staying true to their values of always being cruelty-free and 100% vegan.

NCLA Lipsticks – 100% Vegan

All of NCLA lipsticks are not tested on animals and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients like beeswax or carmine.

Claims: Hyper-pigmented. Paraben free. Phthalate free. Made in the USA. Long-lasting lipstick. Formulated with Castor Oil, Antioxidants, Vitamin C & E.

Currently there are six shades: Silverlake Serenade, Downtown’s Sweetheart, Calabasas Queen, Hollywood Heartbreaker, Beverly Hills Bad Girl, Malibu Moments.

Finish: All of NCLA lipsticks have a semi-matte cream finish.

Beverly Hills Bad Girl NCLA Lipstick ($16)Vibrant pink. Super smooth formula, creamy and feels very velvety. This is a pigmented bright pink.

Silverlake Serenade NCLA Lipstick ($16)Aubergine. This is hands down my favorite lipstick color! High-pigment. Smooth formula. Long-lasting. Comfortable to wear.

Calabasas Queen NCLA Lipstick ($16)Iconic red. Similiar formula as Silverlake Serenade. High-pigment. A very wearable red lipstick. Smooth formula.

Ingredients: Octyldodecanol, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Isononyl Isononanoate, Silica, Tricaprylyl Citrate, Ozokerite, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Paraffin, Phenyl Trimethicone, Microcrystalline Wax (Cera Microcristallina), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Stearyl Stearoyl Stearate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Vanillin, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 28 (CI 45410).

Packaging: NCLA always kills it with their cute packaging. NCLA’s lipsticks are packaged in these super chic and adorable pastel pink plastic tubes with clear arcrylic caps. The small boxes the lipsticks comes in has these cute tropical LA-vibes design printed on them. Did I mention how freakin cute they are!?

Overall thoughts: These are great performing lipsticks. They were all very comortable to wear with a smooth and even application. They do transfer a little but I had on Silverlake Serenade for several hours and it still looked good on my lips. They were also easy to remove with minimal staining.

I would definitely recommend trying out NCLA’s vegan lipsticks yourself! You can buy them on NCLA’s website or on Amazon.Β
