I know this may be a bit late, but I’ve been planning to post my Top 10 Cruelty Free Lipsticks Under $10 for Fall for quite a while now. It’s just taken me forever to make up my mind and narrow it down! JTechnically it is still Fall and I would say that pretty much any of these colors are fantastic for Winter as well, so I think it’s still appropriate. And, perhaps best of all, they’re all under $10 (ok there’s one cheat, but it’s oftenunder $10)! Of course they’re cruelty free as well. How can you go wrong? J This post only focuses on the colors and swatches, but I may do a second post discussing the formulas a bit. Let me know if you’re interested in that kind of post. Also, I have included info about parent companies at the end since I know that makes a difference to some as to a cruelty free status. I’m excited to get on with things, so let’s look at the shades and the swatches!!! J

So there you have it for my Top 10 Cruelty Free Lipstick Under $10. I hope you enjoyed and please leave a comment with any of your own favorites as well. I feel like I don’t give inexpensive products enough attention on the blog, so I will try to do more posts like this in the future if you’ve enjoyed it. I know it can be difficult to find inexpensive cruelty free makeup, and I must admit that I tend to gravitate to the pricey alternatives that can be easier to find and more consistent in quality. There are many gems out there, and I find lipsticks are some of the most fun! JI hope you enjoyed this as much as I did putting it together and I hope to see you around next time!!! J
