Get Leashed’s tried, tested and truly cruelty-free, vegan makeup favorites
By Stefanie Gibson
Beauty isn’t pain, or at least it shouldn’t be. And wearing makeup that was tested on animals isn’t pretty. Luckily, when it comes to cruelty-free makeup options, you now have more selection than ever before. Many brands are fully committing to producing beauty products that aren’t tested on animals, and this is starting to include vegan cosmetics. Restricting your beauty regimen to cruelty-free, vegan products may seem daunting, but we promise it’s worth the effort. Making beauty products cruelty-free takes time, effort and brain-power—not to mention compassion—and we think your skin (and your soul) will feel the difference. To get you inspired to make the ethical switch, we’ve compiled a full look of vegan products we love.
Every beauty connoisseur knows that a good base is more than half the battle. Urban Decay’s Naked Skin is a lightweight liquid foundation with full, natural-looking coverage.
We’re always looking to keep it simple and Tarte’s famous Amazonian Clay Blush and Bronzer Duo satisfies that desire. Popping some of this bronzer and blush on your cheeks will give you a natural, sun-kissed flush.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a very loveable brand; their entire line is completely dedicated to being vegan and cruelty-free. And we especially love their wide range of eye-shadow formulas and colors, which ensures that you’ll find your perfect shadow.
Too Faced has a very long list of vegan products. Our favourite on the list is the Perfect Eyes Eyeliner. This is a waterproof gel liner with a great smudger on one end. You can transform from a stark cat-eye look to a subtle softer eye with just this single pencil.
With Lights Camera Lashes, you’ll notice the volume immediately and over time your lashes will notice the conditioning properties the formula contains. Beauty gurus have been raving about this mascara for a reason.
Ever wanted emerald green lipstick? Lime Crime has you covered with their “every color in the rainbow” range of lipsticks. Look no further to perfect your pout.
