If you’re a big fan of the glossy lips trend that’s making a comeback, you’ll love the Dr. Hauschka Lip Gloss, available in a range of beautiful nudes, pinks and reds to suit just about any complexion or style choice. Designed to accentuate the lips while remaining non-sticky and soft, these lip glosses aren’t your average 90’s glitter glue-style gloss. They’re infused with Mango Butter and Sea Buckthorn Oil for smooth application and round-the-clock hydration – meaning they’re just as good for your lips as they are the environment.

All Dr. Hauschka Lip Gloss is free of mineral oils, PEG, silicones and synthetic fragrances, instead using botanical ingredients and mineral pigments to produce plenty of colour and nourishment without sacrificing eco-friendliness. Apply solo for a glossy, subtle look, or use as a lipstick topper for more dramatic effect.


Speaking of luscious, moisturised lips, this unique Jojoba Lip Balm from The Jojoba Company is packed full of goodness. This product is vegan and designed to soothe dry and cracked lips. Developed for deep moisturisation, this lip balm is a natural luxury in its own little tin. Jojoba which is the closest match to the oils on and within our own skin. Which means this unique liquid wax ester can get deep into the skin for maximum moisturisation.

To apply, simply do as you would with any other balm. Apply using your fingertip throughout the day for softened, crack-free lips. Add on the fact that The Jojoba Company is all about that eco-friendly life, and this brand is as green as it gets. Especiallu when it comes to those all-natural ingredients.

This powder foundation is designed to be applied with a kabuki brush. Only a small amount is needed to achieve excellent results – and if you’re a full-coverage kind of person, it’s easy to build up too.

A minimalist ingredients list prevents pore clogging, resists water and provides built-in sun protection. This is thanks to the inclusion of titanium and zinc oxide. With eight distinct shades available and an entirely vegan, cruelty-free and halal formula, this foundation might be the answer to your full-coverage eco-friendly dreams.


Who doesn’t love a bold lip? These distinctive Ancient Egyptian-themed lipsticks do. These lippies are as visually appealing as they are beautiful on your lips. As the name suggests, these bio lipsticks are from 98% natural origin. Making them about as kind on the planet as you can get. Infused with a whole host of different botanicals, as well as Vitamin E and natural oils, these lipsticks won’t dry your pout out with all those moisturising properties at work.

Fan of a good them? you may also enjoy the fact that each shade of lipstick is named after a different goddess, from Freya to Venus. They’re also super pigmented with a subtle shine. For a perfectly kissable finish that’s also entirely vegan and cruelty-free.


After a blush that’s as nourishing for the planet as it is for your skin? Then RAWW Blush has a lot to offer. Available in two different shades, this pigmented blush is the perfect solution for buildable, blendable colour. It looks as good in a subtle sweep as it does packed on for a bold and bright look. Superfood oils, including Acai and Green Tea, are included to boost that nourishment and keep your skin happy.

Is makeup harmful to the environment?

That all depends on the brand you choose. If you’re conscious about choosing makeup brands that care as much about the environment as you do, you can quickly build up a makeup collection that’s green and gorgeous. More and more Aussie-based brands are focused on reducing the impact of their products. They’re the perfect place to start when it comes to building up your planet-friendly collection.

Eco-friendly, vegan, and cruelty-free – what’s the difference?

While eco-friendly can refer to any product that aims to reduce their carbon footprint or is primarily made of natural ingredients, vegan and cruelty-free are specific labels. The leaping bunny symbol represents products that don’t test on animals. Any product that does not contain animal products, including beeswax, can be considered vegan. While many vegan and cruelty-free brands are eco-friendly, some aren’t. So read up on your labels, or check out more of our lists to make more informed choices for your makeup purchases!
