Call us biased, but when it comes to the creamiest high-quality lipsticks, we believe clean and natural options are stealing the show.
Not only are they formulated with nourishing, good-for-skin ingredients, but the lippies are just as showstopping as their traditional counterparts.
Essentially: They are so, so good. You can slide on a velvety shade and trust that your lips won't wither up midday—because nothing is more annoying than a feathering lipstick.
We should note: The products below all have naturally derived and clean ingredients—for example, fruit pigments to create a rich color payoff as opposed to artificial dyes—but they aren't necessarily 100% organic. They are, however, 100% worth a buy.
Check out our lipstick picks, and find your shade of shimmery coral, intense crimson, or vampy oxblood—we simply adore them all.
Axiology Rich Cream Lipstick
Coconut oil, castor oil, avocado butter, and grapeseed oil make this creamy lippie extra smooth and pillowy. It's formulated with rich, high-impact pigments (just check out this bright fuchsia number), and leaves you with a vivid, never caky hue.

Westman Atelier Lip Suede
Why stick to one lipstick? This lip palette contains a group of four romantic rosy hues you can either wear alone or swirl together to create a customizable color. (Or, since the compact itself is so dang pretty, you may want to keep the pan as pristine as possible—that's fine, too!)
Lip Suede, Westman Atelier ($85)
Aveda Feed My Lips Pure Nourish-Mint Lipstick
You may know Aveda for their slew of hair care offerings, but they also have a collection of 95% naturally derived, cupuaçu fruit-butter-based lipsticks. Best part? Each satin finish is formulated to complement your hair color. Swoon.
Feed My Lips Pure Nourish-Mint Lipstick, Aveda ($26)
Beautycounter Color Intense Lipstick
Every beauty fan needs their go-to shade of red—am I wrong? And Beautycounter's velvety formula is a classic grab for many of those in the know: Jojoba oil and castor oil help it glide on effortlessly, while peppermint oil keeps it lightweight and fresh. The color, an intense crimson, simply can't be beaten.

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Cocoa Butter Matte Lipstick
A dream for thirsty pouts everywhere: This blend of cocoa and shea butters condition the lips with a single glide. But what makes this lipstick truly one of a kind is the fruit-pigmented color—the brand takes extracts from real fruit (like cherry, pomegranate, grape, and peach) to create each long-lasting shade.

Thrive Causemetics Headliner Lipstick
Lily Lolo Rose Gold Lipstick
A decadent, shimmery shade of rose gold that stays creamy all day long—thanks to vitamin E, jojoba oil, and rosemary extract. The unique hue gives your lips some warmth while remaining discreet (your lips, but better, as some might say). Hot tip: Tap the bullet on your cheeks as well for a subtle highlight.
Rose Gold Lipstick, Lily Lolo ($18)
INIKA Organic Certified Organic Vegan Lipstick
A brand committed to using 100% natural ingredients, INIKA Organic includes organic castor oil, shea butter, jojoba oil, avocado oil, and argan oil into this matte pink number, resulting in a luxe, non-drying formula that keeps your lips happily conditioned.
