Lush announced the product on their Instagram this week with a happy, inclusive video, saying:  “These new vegan and hydrating lipsticks come in colors most requested from customers – nudes, greiges and reds! Which colors will you be trying first? The line will only be available in UK stores and on the UK Lush website, meaning beauty lovers in the USA can’t experience it quiet yet.”
