Beauty without cruelty lipstick review

Beauty without cruelty is one of those names in green and ethical beauty that has been about for an extremely long time. Despite the fact that I have added their lipsticks to my cart several times before I haven't actually gotten around to trying them until I was offered this rather beautiful shade called pomegranate to review by Naturisimo. 

The BWC Moisturising Lipstick* (£9.99) comes in a nice variety of shades, Naturisimo stock seven of them on the site. The shade above is Pomegranate, a nice punchy pink. The first thing I noticed about this lip product is just how much pigment you get, you can create a full on bright pink lip or you can dab a small amount on over lip balm to create a softer look. 

This lipstick is Vegan and therefore carmine and beeswax free. The lack of carmine in a product like this does mean some synthetic pigment is used, it just isn't possible to get such a bright shade without it, but the oils used are all natural such as jojoba and castor oil. I found this shade to be a very good dupe for the Kjaer Weis lip tint in Romance of which I am huge fan but the lasting power is much better with the Beauty without cruelty lipstick, in fact it leaves a stain behind as it wears. The finish is what I would call semi-matte, it isn't shiny but at the same time I did not find it to dry out the lips. 

I think these lipsticks are extremely under the radar given the great price point and ingredients, they hold their own against Ilia, RMS and Kjaer Weis in my opinion and I am definitely tempted to pick up other shades. 

**Naturisimo currently have 10% off across site with the code summer**

Have you tried Beauty Without Cruelty? What do you recommend from the range?

    1. It's one of those that is a little under the radar but the lipsticks are very impressive I feel :) Xx

  2. I haven't heard of this brand before but they sound great and I am really tempted to get their raspberry shade lipstick. The price is really good comparing to other better known natural brands. I like the fact that it leaves a stain behind as it wears.

    1. For under ten pounds I have yet to find a better quality lipstick! I say go for it :) Xx

  3. Hi there! Now I really want to try it! :) Does it fade evenly? Or you get that glow around your lips?
    Have a lovely day,
    Ursa :)

    1. Due to the amount of pigment it will cling to any patches if you have them but overall I found it to wear nice and evenly on me :) Xx
