Tough one! It's a three way tie between elf's all over color stick in pink lemonade, mally's volumizing mascara in black, and NYX super fat eye marker in black. I've been in love with these products for forever!

I'm a big fan of the eye shadows from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics:

They're all so beautiful, but Clove is my go-to color.

Hey lovelies,
Since I have heard from Nika I follow her on Facebook (Nicole Petzold) and you tube (SpatzGermany). I come from Germany and discover the vegan live very new. But I'am amazed and wished I would have known so much earlier in my live. So here is my favorite vegan product - The liquid highlighter from organic glam -
Greetings from Germany

this gives a lovely natural glow to my pale skin

i have also done all of the optional extras. I love watching Nika's youtube videos.


Regan said...

I love Arbonne's Makeup Primer + Perfecting Liquid Foundation to give my face that sheer coverage. I loath loading junk on my face but the primer actually does wonders and fills large pores, fine lines and my skin is matte all day long. I get so many compliments! And all Arbonne products are vegan!!!

Looking good and feeling good while knowing you aren't harming innocent lives:)

Thanks everyone for your makeup preferences!!! I am going to check these out:)

Urban Decay Lush Lash Mascara is the first vegan mascara I actually love!,default,pd.html?start=17&cgid=9999&prefn1=isVegan&prefv1=true

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't think the Naked Palette was vegan. It is not listed under the vegan product page. I believe the only vegan Palette Urban Decay offers is the one called the Vegan Palette.

Surreal Skin and Afterglow in Score by Urban Decay aren't vegan either...Just look for the paw print, only those items are vegan. Or there is a vegan tab under "Shop" on their website!

Ariel Lebert said...

I've been vegan for a year and now that I'm well adapted to not eating animals, I'm transitioning into not wearing them and causing unnecessary harm to them. Hoping to find help on your blog!

Sara said...

Caroline Storey said...

So my choices are not makeup per se, but three essential beauty / skin care items which have allowed me to use a whole lot LESS makeup. I use these three products every morning and every night, and my skin has never been better.

First is Dessert Essence Thoroughly Clean face wash. You need about half a pump, and it foams up to a delightful consistency. Bonus: a giant refill bottle is something like $15 and will last forever. Warning: it's about the same viscosity of water, so be careful!

Next step is Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel toner. I've tried a bunch of the Thayers witch hazel line, and they all do about the same thing, but I keep coming back to the rose petal one just because it smells so nice.

And last is Derma e Very Clear Problem Skin Moisturizer. AMAZING. Seriously amazing. This stuff is so thick and rich, you only need a little bit and the tea tree oil tingles just the perfect amount.

And just an add on, if you have really problematic skin or even just an occasional blemish, the derma e Very Clear spot blemish treatment is a life saver.

And as for actual makeup, my go to is Zuzu Luxe concealer. I try not to use foundation most days, so I just use this as a spot treatment and for under my eyes.

definitely Manic Panic's Raven Mascara. Washes off easy-peasy.

Monika Fox said...

My current favorite vegan makeup is Rush Hour-Eyeshadow duo by Hard Candy. =) Amazing giveaway!

Marta said...

My favourite vegan makeup is what I make at home using simple organic ingredients found in my kitchen. My go to for a night out: For kissable lips, I dab a frozen raspberry and apply the juice to my lips! My hubs love it :) @vegheadmarta

Jen said...

Wow - tons of great recommendations in the comments!! :) The majority of makeup I currently use (and have used for the last couple years) is from Pink Quartz Mineral Makeup on Etsy. Love it!
