Since making the switch over to clean beauty matte lipsticks seemed to be the one product that could never find. Natural lipsticks that claimed to be matter never really were, and the shades were never flattering for my skin tone. SPELA cosmetics has changed answered my matte lipstick prayers and created the most amazing line of true matte liquid lipsticks in the most rad shades. SPELAs Paint ‘N’ Play liquid lipsticks are vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, made in the USA, and EU compliant. The lipsticks come in eight absolutely stunning shades that truly do last all day long. They where comfortably on the lips and can be worn as a full pigment lipstick or blotted on for a stained look. The formula itself is lightweight and I love that it’s in a tube with a doe foot applicator. SPELA provides a list of ingredients they will NEVER use in their formulas on their website which includes:
- Known Allergens
- Ingredients that cause environmental harm
- Ingredients that cause DNA/Cell Damage, Reproductive harm, Neurotoxicity, Organ Toxicity, Endocrine Disruption
While the formula does contain synthetics they are considered to be safe synthetics, which simply means they are not known to be harmful or toxic. None of the bad stuff but all of the good. Oh and the lippies are enriched with Vitamin C & E for added antioxidant and nourishing protection.
- Asana – Soft “Greige”
- Flirt – Pale Dusty Rose
- Happy Hour – Vampy Burgundy
- Jet Set – Flattering Classic Red
- Playa – Sandy Nude
- Spa Day – Dusty Mauve (My Favorite Shade)
- Spin – Bubblegum Pink
- Tinder – Hot Orange-Red
The color pay off on these lippies is phenomenal and they dry down within seconds. I love wearing them full coverage for a bold polished look, but still like the look of a sheer blotted application for lighter makeup days. With a price point of $18 you can’t go wrong here. Say hello to your new favorite lipstick.

I am so excited to see the world of health conscious cosmetics continue to evolve and perform, I am sure one day that toxicity in our products will be a thing of the past but until then it’s up to us to ask the important questions and make the best decisions for ourselves.
