Want to know if your wine is vegan? Check out barnivore.com, an online directory of vegan and vegetarian beer, wine, and liquor 🍻 β€œwhen making the product, dairy, honey, and other things are ingredients in the final recipe. When filtering the drinks prior to bottling, companies can use things like isinglass (from fish bladder), gelatin, egg whites, and sea shells, among other things. These products grab onto the impurities and make it easier to catch them in the filters, though there are many animal-free alternatives in use.” πŸ₯‚πŸΎ

Loving the simple, clean, and vegan ingredients in this nourishing ELIXIR nail and cuticle oil by @madam_glam! πŸ’› Contains only three ingredients (Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E & Vitamin B) to help soften dry cuticles and keep them moisturized for a perfect mani πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
.
There is virtually no scent to this cuticle oil, so this would be perfect for someone who is sensitive to fragrances or for someone who doesn’t like lingering scents on their hands when using a hand cream or oil.
.
I also appreciate the recyclable packaging and reusable glass bottle + dropper! ♻️ 🌍

Review: NCLA Nude Lipsticks (100% Vegan Lipsticks)

Posted on
This post may contain affiliate links.

NCLA sent me nudes! — nude lipsticks, that is!

About a year ago, one of my favorite cruelty-free and vegan indie nail polish brands, NCLA, expanded their product range and launched their very own line of vegan lipsticks!

They have since added more colors to their incredible vegan lipstick collection including a range of nude lipstick shades!

Sticking to their principles and core values of always being a cruelty-free and 100% vegan brand, NCLA semi-matte nude lipsticks are all vegan and never tested on animals.

The brand’s mantra has always and will always stay committed to never testing on animals, and maintaining 100% vegan formulas.

NCLA

NCLA Nude Vegan Lipsticks Review

Claims: Semi-Matte Lipsticks. Cruelty-Free and 100% Vegan. Hyper-pigmented. Paraben-Free. Phthalate-Free. Made in the USA. Infused with castor oil to prevent lips from drying out. Infused with Vitamin E & C to keep lips nourished.

Price: $16

Size: Net Wt. 4 g (0.14 oz)

Packaging: Comes in a beautifully designed tropical, floral cardboard box. Totally worth keeping just because they’re so pretty! NCLA lipsticks are packaged in this cute pastel pink tube with a clear plastic lid. The tube feels sturdy and durable. However, I have dropped one of their lipsticks before and the plastic lid cracked and doesn’t lock into place anymore. But the product itself was unharmed and still works perfectly fine.

Shades: NCLA gifted me 4 of their nude vegan lipsticks to try out which includes: Hidden Hills Hottie, Brentwood Snob, Pasadena Roses, and Los Feliz Lolita. In addition to these four colors, NCLA has a beautiful range of nude lipstick shades with a variety of undertones.

NCLA Nude Lipsticks

The above photo showcases swatches of the four NCLA nude lipsticks I got to try. They all have a semi-matte finish. I go into detail about each nude lipstick below.

Brentwood Snob – Coral Nude Semi-Matte Cream. This is a gorgeous nude color, it’s not too bright of a coral-nude and not too dark, it’s perfect πŸ‘ŒπŸ» It applies super buttery and evenly.

Ingredients for NCLA Brentwood Snob: Octyldodecanol, Isononyl Isononanoate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, 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 77492), Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Red 28 (CI 45410)

Hidden Hills Hottie – Light Pink Nude Semi-Matte Cream. The color goes on quite light on the lips, it did apply a little patchy which is normal for me when I wear light-colored lipsticks. My natural lip color is pretty dark so I typically have issues with very light-colored lipsticks. But the formula does warm up on my lips and smooths the color out nicely.

Ingredients for NCLA Hidden Hills Hottie: Octyldodecanol, Isononyl Isononanoate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, 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 77492), Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Red 28 (CI 45410)

Pasadena Roses – Pink Mauve Nude Semi-Matte Cream. This is my favorite lipstick color from NCLA so far! It’s a very soft mauve-nude, very wearable and applies buttery and creamy.

Ingredients for NCLA Pasadena Roses: Octyldodecanol, Isononyl Isononanoate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, 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 77492), Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Red 28 (CI 45410)

Los Feliz Lolita – Chocolate Wine Semi-Matte Cream. This is a dark burgundy lipstick color, probably the darkest color I currently own in my personal lipstick collection. I have pretty dry lips so it did apply slightly patchy on me, I would advise applying this shade with a lip brush to make sure you’re precisely putting it on without it becoming too messy.

Ingredients for NCLA Los Feliz Lolita: Octyldodecanol, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Isononyl Isononanoate, Silica, Ozokerite, Paraffin, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Tricaprylyl Citrate, 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, CI 77499), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850)

Final Thoughts: I thought NCLA’s nude vegan lipsticks were overall a good collection of semi-matte cream lipsticks. They were super creamy when applying and even the ones that were a bit patchy on my lips ended up smoothing out in the end as they warmed up on my lips.

They were all comfortable to wear, didn’t dry out my lips at all, and the formulas felt moisturizing, I think this is where the infused castor oil, Vitamin E & C come into play!

Beautiful shade range, I thought NCLA did such a fantastic job with their nude lipstick shades! I would personally recommend Pasadena Roses and Brentwood Snob.
