When I first starting researching clean beauty brands, Noyah were one company that really caught my attention fast. I loved how pretty their sustainable packaging was, especially with the cherry blossom print.
I was also drawn to their colours, mostly because they’re the type I never thought I’d be wearing. So here we are, 4 years later and I finally have the rest of the shades from their current collection. I honestly still love the shade African Nights too by the way. I haven’t found another red quite like it!
While Noyah aren’t certified organic, they are carmine free and FD&C dye free. For a truly moisturising formula, they’re also one of the best I’ve found. They’re so creamy and feel substantial on your lips, without feeling heavy or too dry.

Unfortunately this is very warm, light apricot nude shade which would be so pretty on paler skin tones, but it’s a touch too light for me.
This is such an interesting shade, I wish I could pull it off. It’s grey and lavender tones washes me out a little bit though. I feel it would work better for cooler skin tones, or I just need to figure out eye makeup to balance it out.
Desert Rose is a soft, baby pink with balanced undertones.
They describe this as a coral and while it’s bright and neon pink, I don’t find a lot of warmth in this. Super pretty pink though! This will leave a slight stain after it wears off.
You might be wondering what the difference between Empire Red and African Nights is and I can 100% confirm that they are both stunning, have the exact same creaminess and staying power. Empire Red is a true red though, whereas African Nights is a warm toned red.
There’s something so attractive about this berry shade. It might be that it leans pinker than purple but I love the brightness and pop it brings. It leaves a pretty dark stain, so expect it to stay around for a while.
One of those deep, berry burgandy tones that stains. I did find that the creaminess of the formula makes it much smoother and evenly pigmented than other similar colours I’ve tried lately.
