Clove + Hallow Lip Crémes

You all. Clove + Hallow Lip Crémes are so dang good. I’m fully obsessed so of course, I wanted to swatch them for you.

These lipsticks are PETA-certified cruelty-free and vegan and are made with a base formula of organic castor and jojoba oils that delivers legit pigmentation. Plus, they are incredibly creamy. So. Very. Creamy. The satin-matte finish is classic and keeps my lips hydrated all day.

Full ingredient list:

Sunflower Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Mica, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Carnauba Wax, Candelilla Wax, Jojoba Esters, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Grapefruit oil, Orange Peel Wax, Argan Oil, Vitamin E; May Contain Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Lake Dyes

Two other bonuses – the white packaging is super chic with a magnetic closure and (and!) they work great as cream blushes. I personally love to wear Desert Rose on my cheeks all the time.

Here are my 4 favorite shades from the collection of 9.

Desert Rose


Flaming Coral


The price point on these lipsticks can’t be beat. 20 dollars! Have you tried Clove + Hallow lip crémes? What’s your favorite shade?
