Juice Beauty Cruelty-Free Foundations

It can be difficult to find a vegan and cruelty-free foundation, first of all because there aren’t that many of these products available at typical grocery and super stores.

Standout Vegan Beauty Products from Mineral Fusion

We love finding vegan and cruelty-free companies that we can easily and conveniently buy from. Mineral Fusion is one of those companies we were thrilled to find, because it makes a nice range of products that you can find at most Whole Foods Markets and other health markets (where you can also shop for vegan and cruelty-free food). Mineral Fusion’s makeup, skincare products, and nail polishes (and polish removers) are amazing because they keep animals safe, are made with natural ingredients for your good health, and cost about the same or less as the most well-known high-end beauty and skin care products. The following are some of the Mineral Fusion products that we’re loving right now and that we think stand out among the sea of makeup and skincare products on the market right now: Continue reading [...]

Tarte Cosmetics Vegan Makeup

Tarte cosmetics began with one woman’s quest for vegan beauty products that were made with pure ingredients. Tarte owner and CEO, Maureen Kelly, wanted to find makeup that was gorgeous and effective, but that didn’t contain yucky, unhealthy ingredients. She searched many department stores and found a few vegan makeup offering clean products, but she was disappointed in the not-very-luxurious packaging of these items. She, like many other women, want their entire beauty experience to be beautiful, and she didn’t want to have to hide her makeup. Continue reading [...]

Vegan Makeup for Less than $10

We don’t want to let a budget stop you from getting your hands on vegan beauty products, so we put together a list of some amazing cruelty-free concealers and eyeshadows that will cost you less than $10 each. The products on our list do not contain any animal ingredients and they’re not made using animal testing. The companies that manufacture these cruelty-free products are able to make a commitment to animals’ rights while keeping prices reasonable. We think that more brands should do this. It’s horrible to hear about the dozens of makeup companies that are still testing on animals and using parts of their bodies in beauty products, especially when we know there is another way.

Super-Moisturizing Vegan Lip Balms for Winter

Does the winter weather have your lips in a perpetual state of dryness? It’s been doing numbers on our lips, which is why we looked for some super-moisturizing vegan lip balms to keep in our purse (or pocket) throughout the season. It’s no fun to have chapped lips. Especially when you’re trying to look pretty (with a nice vegan lipstick) at a holiday party or when you’re thinking about giving your sweetie a holiday smooch. Lips should be soft and supple and kissable. They shouldn’t hurt, and they shouldn’t be cracked and flaky. Continue reading [...]

cruelty-free mascara

Cruelty-Free Mascaras That Wash Off With Water

Want a cruelty-free mascara, but not one that has to be taken off with a special makeup remover? We did. Which is why we set out to find the best vegan and cruelty-free mascaras that can be washed away with only water. We don’t really have the time, or the inclination, to buy and use a product just to remove another one. We like to keep our beauty routine pretty simple. A basic wash with a cruelty-free soap, and some water, is all we’re really willing to put up with on most occasions. Sometimes, we like to get away with just a generous splash of water to take all of our makeup off. We went on the hunt and found some fantastic vegan mascaras that are easy to take off with just water. We’re going to keep these in our makeup bag for the long haul. We think you might want to too.
