Any makeup addict is likely to have a copious collection of lip products from matte lip crèmes to glossy sticks, in every shade imaginable whether it’s bright coral or sultry deep red.

While rave reviews for international beauty brands like Fenty Beauty, Kylie Cosmetics and Kat Von D Beauty are aplenty, Malaysian beauty brands are also making waves with their line of lip products that are just as well-deserving of a place on your vanity table 😊 What’s great about these homegrown labels is that they are often halal-certified, wudhu-friendly, vegan and/or cruelty-free! You’ll be comfortable purchasing from these eight Malaysian brands knowing their products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients and are compliant to our faith. Here are our picks!
