A few weeks ago, I received a Christmas present from my friend Ericka Rodriguez. She sent me a vegan lipstick from her line, Axiology Natural Organic Lipstick, in the color “Elusive”, which is one shade above the darkest. You can see all of the shades here. I am so overwhelmingly pleased with this lipstick that I decided I would do a blog post on it so that you all can consider giving these a try.
No Harsh Chemicals, No Animal Testing!
The ingredients are all natural, organic, vegan and most importantly, pronounceable. There are not random fillers, non-vegan coloring or harsh chemicals, and these babies are pigmented by fruit and other earth pigments, like avocado butter and orange oil. I will discuss the ingredients below 🙂
- Raw, Organic Mango Butter

Pigments are naturally sourced, from the earth 🙂
My Personal Experience
- Long lasting: Even after eating and drinking at a dinner party, this lipstick kept well on my lips! I was so surprised, and actually raced to the restroom after I ate, but I found that I did not even need to touch up my lips.
- A great shade for my skin tone: I was a bit nervous when putting this color on at first, for it is definitely outside of my comfort zone, but now that I am comfortable wearing it out, I love it!
- No irritation: I am very sensitive to beauty and skin products, sometimes breaking out or getting itchy with certain products, and I am happy to say that this lipstick was well received by my lips/skin.
