Vegan Beauty Products Everyone Should Try

Are you thinking about giving your beauty routine a vegan makeover? While vegan beauty picks were once minimal, today, more beauty brands are formulating cruelty-free products that work without harming animals.

Innovative formulas, new technology, and potent plant-based alternatives make creating a natural beauty regime that's kind to animals easy. Read on for our list of the best vegan beauty buys. We're talking about beauty items that are just as great (if not better) than their non-vegan counterparts.


What is Vegan Beauty?

Vegan beauty products are free from animal-derived ingredients, like beeswax, honey, lanolin, silk, and carmine, and are not tested on animals. There are several fully-committed vegan brands like Biossance and Rare Beauty, while other brands like Urban Decay and Charlotte Tilbury offer a range of vegan options.


The Best Vegan Beauty Products for Your Lashes, Lips, Face, and Cheeks

Revealer Skin-Improving Foundation SPF 25 - Kosas

This Allure 2022 winner checks off all the boxes - it's cruelty-free, has good coverage, great texture, and lasting power. But this lightweight foundation goes above and beyond with SPF and added skincare ingredients to visibly plump, firm, and hydrate the skin.

BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush - Tower 28 Beauty

Tower 28 is a PETA certified 100% vegan beauty brand. Every product is expertly formulated, and this lip + cheek cream blush definitely belongs in your makeup bag. Designed with sensitive skin in mind, this creamy pigment has added benefits like green tea and aloe vera extract to soothe the skin.


Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment - Glow Recipe

While all Glow Recipe products are vegan and certified Leaping Bunny cruelty-free, we especially love this overnight resurfacing mask. It's safe for all skin types and exfoliates, hydrates, and brightens the skin while you sleep. It also smells like delicious watermelon candy!


The Best Sellers Set - LiLash Beauty

Besides being vegan and cruelty-free, the LiLash lash and brow serums are packed with quality ingredients for longer-looking lashes and the appearance of fuller eyebrows. Commit to the habit of using your serums regularly for fuller and thicker eyelashes and brows. One swipe a day to clean, dry skin is all you need to boost your beauty routine.


Filmstar Bronze & Glow - Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury is where clean beauty and high-performance products meet. The UK-based brand is entirely cruelty-free and consistently updates its (already) huge line of vegan makeup and skincare. One of our favorites is the award-winning Filmstar Bronze & Glow contour & highlighting palette. The pigments blend seamlessly into the skin to create a chiseled contour and glow-from-within finish.


Kind Words Matte Lipstick - Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez

One of our favorite vegan lipsticks is the Kind Words Matte Lipstick by Rare Beauty. Selena Gomez's makeup line is packed with kind-to-the-earth hidden gems. This classic matte flexible formula nourishes the lips and provides long-lasting pigment-rich color.


KUSH High Volumizing Mascara - Milk Makeup

Get super thick, volumized lashes with one swipe of the KUSH Mascara from Milk Makeup. The mascara is made with hemp-derived cannabis oil that conditions your lashes over time. Milk Makeup also uses vegan "beeswax" made from rice bran to help ensure the formula sticks to your lashes all day.


Vegan Makeup Brushes - Morphe

Complete any vegan makeup look with high-quality vegan makeup brushes. Many makeup brushes are made from animal hair, like horse, goat, or squirrel hair. Morphe has a line of 100% vegan brushes made from ultra-soft synthetic fibers. Plus, they're wallet-friendly!
