8 Vegan Makeup Products That Wowed Our EditorsApril 19, 2022
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 eight vegan makeup products we’ve been loving lately.
Best Vegan Mascara
Build full, fluttery lashes with this volumizing mascara. The lightweight mousse formula makes it great at holding a curl and feels 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.
Best Vegan Concealer
If you’ve been looking for a cruelty-free and vegan concealer that you can use to cover anything from dark circles to acne scars and active breakouts, you’ll love this medium-coverage formula. It offers a semi-matte, non-cakey finish and hydrates the skin with an infusion of tremella mushroom, cica and green tea.
Best Vegan Eyeshadow Palette
Inside this cute and colorful vegan eyeshadow palette, you’ll find 12 shades spanning from verdant greens to earthy neutrals. The mattes are ultra buttery and pigmented, and the shimmers are rich and multidimensional. Each shadow is also incredibly easy to blend, thanks to the addition of avocado oil.
Best Vegan Lip Color
Both a matte liquid lipstick and lip gloss in one, this lippie is sure to satisfy a range of beauty lovers. It’s available in 24 shades, ranging from soft everyday hues to statement pops of color, like royal blue. It also went viral on TikTok for its transfer-proof formula.
Best Vegan Tinted Moisturizer
Formulated with antioxidant-rich kombucha filtrate and marula oil, this lightweight tint is the skincare-meets-makeup product that will moisturize your skin all year. It offers medium coverage, a beautiful glow and long-lasting hydration for all skin types.
Best Vegan 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.
Best Vegan Bronzer
Anyone can achieve a sun-kissed glow with this lightweight vegan bronzer. Available in three shades for fair to deep skin tones, it blends in seamlessly with just a few taps of your brush, sponge or fingertips. Hyaluronic acid gives your skin a dewy, plumped-up finish.
Best Vegan Highlighter
Whether you’re looking for a gleaming highlight or a soft lit-from-within effect, this buildable powder can be layered to your liking. It has a lightweight texture and is formulated with wildcrafted buriti oil and vegetable squalane to moisturize the skin and offer antioxidant protection.
