SWAP FOR SAFER | Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks

If you're a lover of liquid lipstick, finding a non-toxic formula that also stays put is challenging to say the least. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks are a cult favorite for a reason; pigmented, long-wearing, and for the animal lovers---they're cruelty-free (but not vegan).

But I believe I have found a clean swap for Anastasia! 

Let's get started!

     Clove and Hallow Lip Velvet     

Creamy and kissable liquid lipstick infused with coconut oil, shea butter and Vitamin E for a comfortably smudgeproof matte finish.

Available in 7 shades ($18, Clove and Hallow Website)

These liquid lipsticks wear all day without transfer or smudging. The lipstick is formulated with clean and safe ingredients, and is Cruelty-Free and Vegan! A full review of "Jetsetter" will be up soon.


Clean15™ Ingredient Deck: Coconut Alkanes, Isododecane, Hectorite Clay, Polypropylsisesquioxane (silicone to coat pigments), Trimethylsiloxysilicate (silicone to coat pigments), Fractionated Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Wax, Argan Oil, Vitamin E, Iron Oxides and/or Pigments

     Anastasia Liquid Lipstick     

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick is a long-wearing, waterproof, smudge-resistant, matte lip color. 
This ultra saturated liquid formula delivers an intense shot of matte pigment in one easy swipe. A single application gives you smear-resistant coverage that stays put for hours. Full coverage, intense pigment, and a matte finish in an easy-to-apply liquid formula. One sweep delivers vibrant longwearing color that sets all day.

Available in 30 shades ($20, Ulta)


Isododecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Dimethicone, Kaolin, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Polyisobutene, Synthetic Beeswax/Cera Alba/Cire D'abeille, Silica Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Octyldodecanol, Alaria Esculenta Extract, C18-36 Acid Triglyceride, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Laminaria Ochroleuca Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tribehenin. May Contain: Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Red 27 Lake (CI 45410), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)

The use of questionable synthetic preservatives including Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin and the binding agent Polyisobutene, which has links to organ system toxicity, the Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks are not the cleanest formula on the market and while they are paraben and fragrance free, they are by no means clean. 
The Clove and Hallow Lip Velvets provide the same intense pigmentation and long-wearing formula people love from the Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks but without the questionable ingredients!
