Thanks to Glossybox, I now have a new green, non-toxic beauty brand on my radar – Clove + Hallow. They’re a just-budding brand with a few staple products in the line-up so far, including a concealer, powder foundation, and 3 lip products. The best part? All of their products are PETA-certified cruelty-free and vegan, and made with natural and organic ingredients.
“Clove is meant to evoke the warmth we hope you feel from our welcoming brand, and Hallow encompasses the ritualistic and revered relationship that women have with their beauty routines. Our founder chose the name Clove + Hallow with intention, because these words truly represent who we are as a clean cosmetics brand.” – Clove + Hallow
Clove + Hallow Lip Glaze (99% Natural, 64% Organic) – Clove + Hallow’s Lip Glazes deliver a gorgeous wash of color topped with a healthy dose of shine. Now, I’m not a huge fan of glosses as most tend to feel goopy and sticky, but these are just the opposite. They’re lightweight, smooth, and non-sticky. Formulated with natural olive oil, jojoba oil and shea butter, they also double as a hydrating treatment for the lips. Their pigmentation is buildable – apply one coat for a sheer wash of color, along with a touch of shine and hydration. Or, layer it up for coverage that mimics the look of a stain. The shade Spicy is bright warm pink (a great shade for spring and summer), while Angelic is a neutral pale pink that pairs beautifully with a smokey eye.

Clove + Hallow Lip Velvet – The Lip Velvet lippies deliver rich, full-coverage color in a silky-smooth, mousse-like formula. Infused with coconut oil, shea butter and Vitamin E, they glide on smoothly, feel weightless and comfortable, and provide a non-drying matte finish. The application process is practically foolproof – what I like to do is apply one quick swipe with the wand, and then use my finger to spread it out over my lips for a smudged lip look. They also have amazing staying power – they’re smear-proof once set, and last through eating and drinking with very gradual, even fading. The shade Uptown is deep rose-mauve that I tend to grab for evenings out. (Note: This shade appears much more muted on my hand when swatched, while on my lips it tends to look a tad brighter, almost like a dark raspberry.)
Clean15™ Ingredient Deck: Coconut Alkanes, Isododecane, Hectorite Clay, Polypropylsisesquioxane (silicone to coat pigments), Trimethylsiloxysilicate (silicone to coat pigments), Fractionated Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Wax, Argan Oil, Vitamin E, Iron Oxides and/or FD&C Pigments
Clove + Hallow Lip Crème (91% Natural, 24% Organic) – Clove + Hallow’s Lip Crèmes provide full-coverage color in a creamy, ultra-nourishing formula. With a combination of natural and organic jojoba, castor and sunflower oils, they hydrate and smooth the lips like a balm. They’re also richly pigmented, and coat the lips in even, full-on color in just one swipe. Topped off with a healthy-looking satin finish, this lippie has easily become my everyday go-to. The shade Desert Rose is a neutral, medium rosy-nude that I imagine being universally flattering for all skin tones.
Clean15™ Ingredient Deck: 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
