It became evident the other day as I was sat doing my routine everyday makeup that I use a lot of Arbonne cosmetics. From their foundation that I absolutely swear by, and now their concealer, I thought it was only appropriate to share my five favourites from their new lipstick range (which is quite extensive, might I add).
One thing I love about Arbonne is that they’re vegan. Whilst I’m not only loyal to vegan brands, I do make a conscious effort to seek out animal friendly products. I find it difficult to find a good vegan lipstick though. Either the quality doesn’t match the price, they smell weird, the colour range is limited or they still contain some nasty chemicals.
And that’s why I love Arbonne lipsticks. They long-wearing, pigmented, and not obviously “green”. You couldn’t even tell with their sleek black design that they’re an eco-friendly brand.

Rose: A gorgeous subtle plum pink that’s not too dark and not too light. It’s great for someone wanting some noticeable colour, but nothing too daring. It translates easily between seasons, making it a great investment.
Willow: This colour definitely caught me by surprise as it’s not one I can compare easily. It’s a very cool-toned nude, but with a hint of lilac and grey in it. I love how it looks when I’ve got a bit of colour, but when I’m feeling pale, it doesn’t sit too nicely.
Magnolia: A pretty, soft pink nude. I reach for this as an everyday colour, but I find it only works well when using a lip liner underneath because it has the tendency to settle into lines.
Aster: A toned-down hot pink, which just makes it all the more wearable. I can’t help but gravitate towards this colour for Spring, and it effortlessly dresses up any casual look.
Iris: I always lean towards darker, bold shades when it comes to lipstick so Iris is my favourite of the lot. It complements green, hazel and brown eyes so nicely, and works with almost any skin tone. It’s a deep, vampy purple with hints of burgundy. It’s quite similar to Rebel by MAC.
