The Elixery Cosmetic House goes beyond just vegan and gluten-free cosmetics, formulating all of their products in-house, without outsourcing any of the production. They set up shop in a vintage laboratory in the middle of Minneapolis, employed their own chemist and compounder, and got to work concocting their own makeup recipes from scratch.
Not only do they not test on animals, but they ensure that all of the raw materials are cruelty-free, all the way back to their original source. They also state their firm commitment to gender equality and their believe that people “should have the right to express who they are within.”
What we love best about Elixery is their extensive collection of vegan red lipsticks, which we know can be difficult to find since the red dye used for red lipstick is often crushed beetles. Their shades of red include:
- Aradia – a deep ruby pink
- Aviatrix – a deep berry
- Black Ruby – a ruby red
- Dessa – a brick red with a yellow undertone
- Devious – a berry
- Starlet – a bright red
They also have a slew of other shades such as taupes, browns and pinks, and fun shades such as blue, orange and purple. To check out The Elixery’s fabulous vegan and cruelty-free lipstick, visit their website and have a great time browsing all of the eye-popping colors.
