Zuzu Luxe Ultra Suede Lipstick Swatches

After going cruelty free and vegan, I wasn't sure what to expect when it came time to find new favorite lipsticks that fit that criteria. The only thing I knew for sure was making that lifestyle change just felt right for me... and although I couldn't foresee what products I would be using, I had a good feeling that you can make that change without sacrificing selection or standard of quality.

The Zuzu Luxe makeup line from Gabriel Cosmetics was an exciting discovery. Zuzu Luxe and Gabriel Color lipsticks are fantastic! Their quality is right up there with MAC or any brand you'll find at Sephora... and their ingredients are healthy for your lips too.

Zuzu Luxe Ultra Suede is my new favorite nude lipstick! Ultra Suede is a warm peachy-nude hue with a buttery texture and creme formula.

Ultra Suede is a medium nude shade, I've found it to be a perfect nude lipstick for my medium-tan skin tone. I can see this nude looking beautiful on fair and darker skin tones as well. The warm peachy undertone is flattering and it has a slight sheerness that softens and subdues your natural lip color, creating a more natural effortless nude lip.

Zuzu Luxe Lipstick Review

Zuzu Luxe Lipsticks are made in the USA. The packaging is Zuzu Luxe's classic silver lipstick tube with their signature wave logo. It's a good quality, sturdy plastic with a chrome and matte silver finish, it almost feels and looks like metal.

Zuzu Luxe Ultra Suede feels lightweight and moisturizing on the lips. Thanks to the all natural oils and extracts in Zuzu Luxe lipsticks, wearing these lippies is like giving your lips the royal luxury treatment.

Overall, Zuzu Luxe Ultra Suede vegan lipstick is smooth, creamy, ultra-hydrating and a deliciously semi-sheer peachy-nude, that'll be perfect for summer!

Zuzu Luxe lipsticks are $18.15 on their Gabriel Cosmetics website here. But check your local health food stores for sales too! I first discovered Zuzu Luxe at Down To Earth on Maui, they were having a great sale, so I purchased a few items and have been loving this brand ever since.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and if have a favorite cruelty-free or vegan nude lipstick!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a safe 4th Of July weekend!

  1. Hi Christine! Have you tried the Red Apple Lipstick brand? They have a large variety of lipsticks and eye shadows, and they meet all of your criteria. My favorite nude is their lipstick in New York. I think the quality is better that Zuzu and the packaging is much nicer too. It is more expensive ($25 tube) but if you sign up for their newsletter you get a 20% off coupon every month plus you can get a $5 credit for every "chemically formulated" makeup product you send them to destroy. If you try the line, please post a video review. Thanks!
