Vegan Makeup Products That Wowed Our EditorsApril 07, 2023
We’re all about making more environmentally conscious decisions, and that includes taking a critical look at what’s in our beauty products. One thing we’re committing to this year is shopping for more vegan makeup — products that are made without any animal ingredients or animal-derived ingredients.
Not only are these makeup products better for the environment, but there are also so many amazing choices on the market. (We think everyone should start putting together a vegan makeup bag of their own!) Ahead, discover nine vegan makeup products we’ve been loving lately.
The Best Vegan Makeup Products
Maybelline Green Edition Mega Mousse Mascara
Build full, fluttery lashes with this volumizing mascara. The lightweight mousse formula makes it feel soft and clump-free on your lashes. Not only is the mascara vegan, it’s also made with 99% natural origin ingredients and boasts a bio fiber-based wand, which is perfect for helping to hold a curl.
Merit Flush Balm Cream Blush
Cream blushes are great for adding a healthy flush of color to the cheeks and a soft radiant sheen. Shop this creamy formula that’s available in five shades, including soft peaches and pinks and bold berries and burgundy.
NYX Professional Smooth Whip Matte Lip Cream
This ultra-smooth lippie applies like a liquid lipstick and hugs like a cream lipstick for comfortable all-day wear. It’s available in 12 shades, ranging from soft neutrals to vibrant hues like fuschia. Plus, ingredients like slow-whipped shea butter and cocoa butter provide a lasting smooth sensation.
Urban Decay Wild Greens Eyeshadow Palette
Inside this cute and colorful vegan eyeshadow palette, you’ll find 12 shades spanning from verdant greens to earthy neutrals.
